“The greatest tribute to the dead is not grief, but gratitude,” Thornton Wilder once wrote. Two months in, my grief for losing my best friend Chris is still ever-present. Nevertheless, realizing that painful separation was always going to be an inevitable price for attachment, I started attempting to derail the train of sorrow onto the path of grat…
 
I dedicated my last Chill Pill mix to my best friend who left this world all too quickly last month from his short-lived flight with COVID. Since then, and following the funeral that I couldn’t attend in person, I fell into a deep existential breaking point as I realized the fragility of life, and grabbled with the conviction that this can’t be all…
 
On the eve of the 1st anniversary of when COVID-19 was declared a pandemic, I mourn the loss of my best friend who lost his short-lived fight to it last month. I made this mix in an attempt to process my shock, my disbelief that years of talking to him every single day have been undone, and came to an indisputable irreversible end, in a matter of a…
 
I’m happy to present the very first guest mix on this show, by none other than my friend and previous collaborator Tonepoet. His ambient mixes on his Spaceman’s Transmissions podcast are exquisitely crafted pieces of art, and he is gracing this show with a beautiful painting that he describes below. He also creates beautiful guitar-infused ambient …
 
In this album, I would like to invite you to sample the world of awakened souls (awakenedsouls.bandcamp.com), an ambient music project of veteran electronic music producer James Bernard and his wife Cynthia. When I stumbled on their album how we heal, I knew I had found an artist who creates music for the same reason I create these mixes: to heal. …
 
This mix is dedicated to all people who dream of a better world, one without the conflicts and fractions that plagued our world today. Sometimes I like to zone out and run my imagination wild and free. I like to think that one day, somehow humans will find a way to coexist. To be able to give and take. To share this planet Earth equally and fairly …
 
Happy new year everyone. Let’s make the best of 2021. I’m energized and looking forward to crafting for you more mixes showcasing the best of what ambient genre has to offer.

Happy new year everyone! This mix is inspired by a beautiful song called Love & Hate by Michael Kiwanuka, and the mix is dedicated to my brother Ahmad who recommended it when I asked him for his favorite song to make a mix around. I loved the empowering message of the song that I decided to make an uplifting mix themed around it. Let’s make 2021 co…
 
I released this mix 9 years ago under my previous pseudonym DJ Seroton in a series called Unwind. It was inspired by the first track, In My Secret Life, by the late Leonard Cohen. It was a personal mix to some extent. The following words by Gregory L. and Brenda Person sum up how I was feeling at the time. Perhaps you can relate to it. Either way, …

I’m thankful for all of you listeners and supporters of this show. I have recently been graced by an uptick of positive reviews on Apple Podcasts and other apps where this show is available. I treasu…
 
Most mixes I create are typically inspired by a single song that I hear and feel strongly about creating a themed mix around. This one, however, has two sources of inspiration. First, I stumbled upon the dreamy, hazy and romantic style of a band called Cigarettes After Sex (the name beats me!). They became an instant favorite and their song Falling…
 
On the eve of the 4th anniversary of Calm Pills (this series began back in Nov 15, 2016), let’s take a trip back in time to the very first ambient mix I ever created. This is mix number one! I created it 8 years ago under my previous pseudonym DJ Seroton, and to this day it remains one of the best ones I have ever done. This is what I wrote in the …
 
I’m back with yet another guest mix. This time I approached Alessio who hosts Corsica One, a series that showcases carefully curated selection of uplifting and evocative soundscapes. His show is all about variety, and that inspired me to do something a bit different to start this Calm Pill mix with, something a bit more mystic. I think you’ll like …
 
This is a throwback mix released 5 years ago under my previous pseudonym DJ Seroton in a series called Unwind. The mix was inspired by the 5th track (More Than Nothing), and is centered around our desire to sometimes “turn back the hands of the clock” and do something we missed out on doing. Even though the song describes a man’s regret for not pur…
 
In his seminal album Ambient 1: Music for Airports, Brian Eno proclaimed “Ambient Music must be able to accommodate many levels of listening attention without enforcing one in particular; it must be as ignorable as it is interesting”. Over at AmbientSoundbath.com podcast, Matt has been curating and producing longform ambient albums that are faithfu…
 
“May your dreams bring you peace in the darkness, May you always rise over the rain. May the light from above always lead you to love, May you stay in the arms of the angels.” from the opening track Lullaby For A Soldier (Arms Of The Angels) by Maggie Siff & The Forest Rangers, taken from Sons of Anarchy soundtrack. Making this mix was a labor of l…
 
I call to you in longing by the light of the moon, billowing clouds envelope me with absence of pain or fear all time suspended. In the stillness of this night, peace washes over me as I listen to the Universe… do you hear its whisper, do you feel its heartbeat?

This mix was released on this day 5 years ago as part of my Drifter ambient series, which I created under my previous pseudonym DJ Seroton.

We gave this mix the title of “As The World Comes i…
 
Brilliant colors wash over the sky The wonder of it all brings out a sigh Clouds bathed in the rich tones at dusk Give way to a crimson, for some it’s a must The elegance of the sun sinking into the sea Did God make all this especially for me? The stars emerge through the deepened sky And one by one they brighten ones eye Moonbeams dance; sparkling…
 
With this mix, I want to invite you to fall in love with a style of chillout music called Chillhop. It’s a style that brings together lofi hip hop beats with a rather jazzy and relaxed feel. One day, I was sampling music on Bandcamp when I stumbled across City Girl’s incredible album: Siren of the Formless. I had heard (and previously featured) thi…
 
This album is dedicated to Antonymes, an artist whose work has inspired me for years.

Time goes by but memories never fade. I released this mix on this day 4 years ago, a week after my friend passed away. It would become the 9th and final episode of my Drifter ambient series. It is a deeply personal mix in which I tried to express a never-before-felt outpouring of grief. Somehow the tracks I’ve chosen had titles that told a similar …

You don’t want to close the door on hope.” – Merle Haggard This is yet another throwback mix that was released exactly 7 years ago under my previous pseudonym DJ…

If you feel like showing your appreciation, buy me a cup of a coffee.…
 
Many of us were hoping for a nice little spring break but instead were told to lay low until this virus outbreak is under control. When you can’t travel for a holiday, this mix hopefully gives you the soundtrack of one.

I have been a fan of Guido’s lounge mixes ever since I developed a passion for mixing back in 2011. He is such a great musician, DJ and above all a supportive friend.

This mix is inspired by Jim Carrey’s 2014 commencement speech at the Maharishi University of Management: “Our eyes are not only viewers, but also projectors that are running a second story over the picture we see in front of us all the time. Fear is writing that script and the working title is, ‘I’ll never be enough.'” Making this mix was a labor o…
 
Every season has its special beauty and autumn is no exception. Watching the trees turn from a uniform green to all varieties of gold, yellow and red is a spectacular experience. One can almost be blinded by the fiery brilliance. How can it be that all this beauty is sign of death and decay? With all this beauty there is a certain sadness in knowin…
