"In each of us
There once was a fire
And for some of us
There seem as if there are only ashes now

But when we dig in the ashes
We find one ember
And very gently we fan that ember
Blow on it
It gets brighter
And from that ember we rebuild the fire

Only thing that's important is that ember
That's what you and I are here to celebrate

The ember gets stronger
Flame s...

"Cold and drifting,
nothingness and floating,
swimming through zero gravity,
A thought emerges slowly,
drudging through the whale's mind.

"What is this..?"
This lonesome earth is not my home
I'm just wanderin' through
I'm waiting on my chariot ride
To home beyond the blue.

What splendor there awaits!"

This mix is an ode to one of my favorite ambient mix series of the same name by Alex Hephaestian. Themed around highlighting ethnic ambient music from around the world, Alex's mix series (which you can stream on Mixcloud) shows such mastery in combining exquisite mixing and mystical storytelling. It chronicles the journey of Oushie who travels far from his home to visit...

"When you fall in love with a work of art, you’d die to meet the artist.

I am a student of the galleries of Pacific sunsets, full moon rises on the ocean, the clouds from an airplane, autumn forests in Raleigh, and first fallen snows.

And I’m dying to meet the artist."

"The sun is so beautiful in the early morning. It does something to the trees that you don’t see any other time of the day. I think we all want the same thing: A quiet peace. Maybe just even a single moment of it, to close our eyes and just be okay. For even a single second, to not feel worried about something, sad about something. To not crave something we don’t–or can...

This mix is inspired by heal., a magnificent meditative album by the talented man behind Project AER. He usually produces heartfelt lofi music, but when he turns to ambient, his work lives up to that of the best you've ever heard.

The rest will fade away
Just give it time and see
That some things just can't stay

To Chris, in celebration of his birthday, life, and legacy. He would have been 37 today (Jan 13). Less than a year ago, his passing was our rebirth. It imbued me, his sister and his family with a sense of duty to live out his legacy. The life that he could have had. The life he would have wished for us. Rest in peace my friend.

As 2021 comes to a wrap, it feels like we should be seeing the pandemic off, but the reality is anything but. With more imposed restrictions coinciding with the holiday season, I released this mix to hopefully provide solace to those celebrating alone or unable to spend it with some of their loved ones.

Musically, this mix features 3 tracks from a masterpiece new album by J...

It's my 39th birthday today :) 🎂

Inspired by the soothing music of Human Is Alive (humanisalive.bandcamp.com), I wanted this mix to induce reminiscence of happy moments from our past. Amidst the swirl of incessant, attention-demanding world we live in, I sometimes get these fleeting recollections of past events, people, or even things that brought me joy. I made...

"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
Inviting me to meet it on the way

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

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 of its own, and this is one such mix.

I'd like to present to ...

"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, never leaving a trace
For someone to follow and discover my spac...

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 willows that quietly droop
Their shadows, as they drape and stoop.

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 ...
