"In the shadow of a moonlight gaze
a cold and misty type of haze
washes over me as if my soul
has left and made me half, not whole
as night envelops everything around
the darkness heaps its magic on the ground
as features change and dampness marks its place
a pleasing smile appears upon my face
I love that nature calls me every day

So what about it all my friend ?
Has life smiled upon your face?
Do you feel the warming emanate
From within the planet’s grace?

Dare you hold the flame aloft for me
To strive under your spell ?
…For should you guide me to tomorrow
We can tomorrow’s burdens break

Inspired by Constance Demby's album Sonic Immersion, my hope for this mix is to help you bring calmness to a disturbed mind, inviting you to interface with the moment in full awareness. Take a deep breath and embark on this journey. See you on the other side.

This mix was released 6 years ago as part of my Drifter ambient series, which I created under my previous pseudonym DJ Seroton. It was the first collaboration I have done with the talented musician Tonepoet, who creates an excellent ambient mix podcast called Spaceman's Transmissions.

There are 3 principles guiding the creation of Calm Pill mixes: song curation with variety, production value, and showcasing artists. On the last one, every Calm Pill mix features several artists whose great music deserves to be discovered and heard, but every now and then, a whole artist album inspires a mix...

"There's a place where I go that no one else knows,
Where mysteries abound and excitement grows.
A place out of reach of any man's hands,
Safely secluded in a far away land
Beyond the grasp of those who may plunder
The wealth of its power and its life changing wonder.
I go alone to my secret place, ...

As I lay my head to rest,
I pray my dreaming will be blessed:
With glittering starlight upon the moon,
Floating like a lost balloon.
With chuckling streams that catch the light,
And songbirds trilling with delight.
With soft white clouds in pure blue skies,
A lilting breeze that gently sighs.
With weeping ...

I'm pleased to announce the launch of Calm Pills Ambient Radio (calmradio.uppmixes.com): a free 24/7 online radio station playing your favorite Calm Pill mixes which you can tune into anytime and just hit play!

Calm Pill library of mixes has grown over the years and many new listeners will not get to hear most of them due to how podcast episodes are presented (last to first), so it made sense to launch this station to help you ...

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 that we are, all that we live for, and all that remains of us. I imagined th...

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 music which I have featured heavily in the past. Check out his music and mixe...

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. Their mission is to "help others find the sense of healing that music brings to t...

On the eve of 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 release notes back in Jan 16, 2012:

"What puts you to sleep?

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 it.

Making it was a labor of love. If you feel like showing your appreciation...

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 faithful to that aspirational ideal of ambient music. I really admire the work Matt ...

"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? You smile inside the clouds, as we yearn to become one, lingering until the color of dawn, spills across the sky." — The Stillness of This Night by James Casey
