Another awesome chillout mix from you. Your mixes(to me) have been helping me to relax for the last 2 months, I work in the restaurant industry and after a long day prep cooking and washing dishes your mixes help put me in calm down/relax mode. Thanks and keep em coming!

Joel, I'm so glad that the mixes have helped keep you calm. It makes me so happy to see folks using these collections in the real world. I would lose my mind without music so I'm always glad when other people latch on to these mixes. Cheers!

I have been a big Philip Glass fan for decades, though he's more someone I respect than listen to that much. The long-form/opera pieces Glass for which Glass is best known can be hard to take in large doses. This mix is a perfect bridge for several artists I feel that way about: shorter pieces or excerpts, and interesting covers by other artists. The opening track is astonishingly beautiful: One of my favorite Philip Glass albums (soundtrack to MISHIMA performed on my favorite jazz instrument.) Btw, another great ambient/melodic exerpt is "Tolstoy, Scene 2" from Glass's SATYAGRAHA.

Paul, I totally agree on the Glass opera pieces. I have several and am glad for the exposure but I rarely listen anymore. My two favorite Glass albums are Mishima & Glassworks. Thanks for the heads up on "Tolstoy, scene 2." Listening right now - good stuff!

Reich's Music for 18 Musicians way back in '78 was the gateway to an appreciation of minimalism for me as well. Fantastic mix--thanks!

Really great mix. One question, at around 33:00 the track listing has it as "Chorus of Exiled Palestinians" though it sounds like a very different track to me. A very good track :) Can you tell me what it is?

Good catch! You're right that is not "Chorus of Exiled Palestinians." It's "Hoodoo Zephyr." I've fixed the tracklist. Thanks so much for the heads up and I'm glad you enjoyed the mix. Cheers!
