During this last year I have been called to create mixes that explore my edges; mixes that span many different genres. This mix really pushes on my edge for "darker" electronic music. I fell in love with Chillstep when I was first introduced to the sound; a perfect blend of beautiful vocals and deep, deep bass. With Chillstep, there also seems to have this subtle spirituality flowing throughout it as well. After all, it is the home to Alan Watts.

This mix is dedicated to our friend Belle who brought Chillstep to us at a very important time. Music is a healer.

"Spirituality is not the path of milk & honey; it is going into the darkness." - B. G. Rickhi

Following what seems to be a trend in Chillstep album covers, I decided to use digital artwork. A huge thank you to Leroy Van Vliet for the beautiful cover, which I find to be so symbolic of the mix. More of Leroy's work can be found at http://leroyart.com/ or https://catbib.deviantart.com/

Yoga Flow

With you is a 90min continuous yoga flow mix. The mix was imagined to work well for a 50, 60, 75 and 90 minute class. The mix begins and ends slow, with some heat in the middle. Long loops and enchanting grooves lay a subtle ambience for an inspired practice where the practitioner is encouraged to journey inward. Traditional yogic sounds are blended with a new age style of electronic music. Cycling from light and dark sounds, a spiritual path is reflected. My own spiritual journey has drawn me to blend First Nations teachings with Yoga; and so you will find that influence splashed in there as well. It is my hope that it will be a helpful backdrop to a meaningful experience on the mat for you or your students.

This mix is dedicated to my wife Kimberly who first introduced me to yoga back in 2010, and to all the teachers that have helped me deepen my practice along the way. There are too many teachers to name individually - you know who you are. I've collected most of these songs from classes that were taught by all of you smiley Namaste.

Most of these mixes stir in the imagination for years before their songs bond together to form something complete. But this set of tunes seemed to coalesce out from nowhere, seemingly from the ether itself in a strangely quick and unexpected way.

Music that lays a gentle and inspiring background for any journey. Maybe a physical experience of endurance or strength. Or maybe a nonphysical exploration of your inner landscape, riding on the back of your turtle totem into the far edges of the sea and your imagination. In a subtle way there was a teaching that came with this mix; to remember how important integration and reflection is with every journey. If we continue to forget to make time and space to integrate, then integration becomes the great odyssey.

Ocean Blues

Over the years I've had this subtle feeling that these mixes make themselves. The more I can step out of the way and let the mix reveal itself, the more unexpected it becomes. Slowly, it becomes in focus. This mix in particular tested my patience more than any other. Certain songs make up the seeds of the mix, and they provide the foundation from which other songs coalesce. Some of the seeds for this mix have been waiting patiently for nearly 15 years.

As I listen I feel mixed emotions: deep, dark and changing like the ocean. Some have been buried and long forgotten, they begin to rise slowly to the surface as I focus my awareness into them. There is this quality of roughness around the edges, like waves crashing into rocky shores. I ask for forgiveness.

"Colours come and colours go, summer sun and winter snow"

From A Solid To A Liquid
February 07, 2017 07:45 PM PST
itunes pic

Winter is represented by the medicine wheel direction of North and the colour white. In Ayurveda, winter is represented by the Kapha dosha. More than anytime during the year, winter calls us to slow down, rest and dream. This mix was designed to help bring your awareness inward; from your ordinary state of being to the non-ordinary, from consensual reality to non-consensual, from time to nature's pulse, from movement to stillness, from a solid to a liquid. This mix can be a helpful backdrop for meditation, art, restorative or yin yoga, massage tables, float tanks and especially afternoon dreaming.

In 2014, I attended my first yoga nidra workshop. During this class with well over 50 people, I drifted into sleep. I awoke right at the end of class feeling rested and relaxed, but also quite surprised that I actually feel asleep. I later found out through further practice that this is quite normal. The class taught by Giselle Mari was titled From a Solid to a Liquid. My experience during this class planted the inspirational seed for this mix, which has been growing from that day.

Canoe and a Cave (Autumn Inspirations Vol I)
September 18, 2016 10:01 PM PDT
itunes pic

As the leaves start to fall off the trees and that distinctive chill in the crisp autumn air returns, I am called to slow down and turn inwards. Autumn is represented by the medicine wheel direction of West and the colour blue (or sometimes black). In Ayurveda, autumn is represented by the Vatta (wind) dosha.

May this melodic and emotive mix help to relax and create space for introspection. The title comes to me from what I could remember from a recent dream… [I remember being asked 2 questions. I cannot remember the 1st for the life of me. The 2nd involved making a connection between a canoe and a cave. I began my story explaining how reality was a sort of illusion and how physical journeys were actually more about the inner journey - what goes on inside someone. Henceforth, it matters not whether you are travelling in a canoe or sitting in a cave. A cave is a type of canoe. The journey is inside regardless.]

"Remember, you only need to move a 1/4 inch in the direction of your dreams to start feeling better" - Don Ollsin

BEACH (Summer Inspirations Vol VI)
July 25, 2016 08:15 PM PDT
itunes pic

I love to feel full circles….. when what I thought was maybe lost returns again stronger with the uncanny sense of how it felt at the very beginning. The Love & The Music was born on the beaches of Australia. During my honeymoon in July I visited the Hawaiian island of Maui and felt the return of the inspiration of the beach (the cover photo and the ocean waves heard throughout the mix were recorded off the western shores of Maui). During this special time in my life I was filled with an incredible amount of creative energy, which has finally manifested in this sun-soaked tropical house mix. Thank you to everyone who supported Kimberly and I in our journey together, may you feel my love for you in this album. To everyone else, may these sounds lighten and uplift your mind, body and spirit….. wherever you are. One love.
