Chillits

Chillits, and the greater Cloud Factory crew, is a sister community to the Rhythm Society (community I co-founded)—overlapping for a time at Camp and Sons campground in Willits, California (hence the name chill + Willits). Many of my favorite chillout and ambient DJs/musicians (Mixmaster Morris, Jonah Sharp, DFTram, to name a few) have played at their annual campout, and it's long been a dream to play with the Chillits crew. I guess it took a pandemic and a virtual event for that to come true. Hopefully a physical cuddle pile at Chillits is in my future :)

This mix is a collection of some of my favorite chillout tracks from the past 45 years. What I like about many of these tracks is the underlying complexity, rhythmic tension, or unexpected tonality. These qualities make mixing them more challenging. While I'm happy with the outcome of the mix, it was not without a lot of frustration and heartache. Perhaps that's why this mix feels more melancholy than my typical fare—hope you enjoy!
