Turning Hopeful

Turning Hopeful

Chart positions

This show was 1st in the global chill chart, 1st in the global instrumental chart, 2nd in the global ambient chart and 7th in the global chillout chart.

Curated by Paul Asbury Seaman, this is the perfect mix to close out 2018 and look forward to 2019.

I like working together with Paul because he takes mixes in slightly different directions than I usually do. Here's what Paul says about this mix:

"This mix features melodic ambient tracks with a hopeful feeling, including some early New Age classics guaranteed to put a smile on your face. Also, brand new tracks from Byron Metcalf and Remote Vision, a solo project of Don Tyler (Ascendant). The theme was inspired by the title song from John Hiatt’s 1988 album, “Slow Turning.” Redemption means turning from one way of being to embrace another, a recurring process, fueled by hope."

Thanks Paul, in 2019 I hope we can all turn hopeful.

Love it and the audiophile who made it!


This has such an interesting texture to it! I love how Paul made something that has a healthy amount of nostalgia and positivity for the future at the same time. The perfect mix to spend the first week of the year with, thanks to both of you.

Thanks for your lovely and spot on comments. If Paul hasn't seen them yet I'll make sure I forward them to him. Thanks for listening. Here's to a great 2019. Cheers!

Just saw these comments (I've been off-line for 4-5 days). Thank you, Debaparna, and others for your gracious responses. For musicians--and mixers--probably any artist...specific comments are those best compliments. And if I can help get some of you to feel more hopeful for 2019, I'm happy.

Beautiful and touching. Lovely softer sonic textures that move away from the swan songs of despair and into the music of hope which is as regal as the swan bird itself.

Awesome to hear Jan!

My thoughts exactly! I was so excited to see Paul include a Garbarek track. Cheers!

Paul Asbury Seaman

Your shout-out to Garbarek made me smile. (Thanks.) He's been one of my favorite artists for several decades. --but a challenge for a mix, as so much of his music is hard to categorize, or has to be heard in whole to be fully appreciated.
