As much as I enjoy RAVE TILL I DIE AND CYBERPUNK UTOPIA and the musical journey I am able to share with you through them. I do enjoy, like many some more laid-back tunes, some time to relax and let things just be. To ponder and take time to enjoy what we have.
But I've always had difficulty finding the right mix of music. Sure there are many mixes to chill out too, but not many to experience. Like a great album, that takes you to a place to just disappear. I wanted to create a 10-part series to share my own vision of chill-out music.
Why only 10? I think it's enough. Not much has changed in these genres of music and there ain't much room to further develop mixing-wise compared to the other 2 series. That's my honest opinion. Lo-Fi music all sounds the same and let's not start on hip-hop. And there is only so much you can do before it all just turns to a playlist,
I've done my best to curate a limited series for you that expresses pieces of music that I feel showcase something different in this soundscape of genres. They either offer a deeper emotional quality or are pieces of music I feel the creators have truly captured something different. It's also a statement piece to show that there is space for creators in these elements of music to push the boundaries. It's only a matter of willingness to not create the same, bland product over and over again.
One aspect I'm most proud of is the recording and mastering of this series. I wanted to create a greater depth of warmth and punch overall and I think I've found a great balance between the two. Where you feel the low end more prominently but aren't overwhelmed by it. And you're able to enjoy the mid-range warmth, like warm silk sheets without the blur or unclarity in the low end. All wrapped up in a package that has been carefully balanced to provide a sharp high-end that lets the original pieces sing through.
I hope that in each episode you experience a sense of peace and contemplation. And inspires you to set goals, dream, and envision your future. Push yourself to create something special. Something that offers something new.
