(slowly drifting) light years away

After reviewing some new music, I came across STILL POINT by HAMMOCK. I was so overwhelmed with its deep, hypnotic swirl and realized that there was no way I couldn't put it in this mix. I was supposed to be doing a final project for an Organizational Communications class, but now I'm sidetracked with putting this out there. How unfortunate. No, not really (actually finished the class, did quite well in it BTW).

After hearing Still Point, I came up with title immediately. I'm truly inspired right now. And I've created a mix that will take your mind on a peaceful, uplifting, and enlightening journey to the ether of your mind. This mix is multi-purpose: you can sleep to it, you can definitely stay awake to it and have your mind blown, or you can choose a state in between the two. I've carefully mixed and mashed up some very tasty ingredients for your mental departure to the deep corners of solitude and escape.

Please feel free to lighten the grip of your mind's gravity. We'll return after a bit. But for now, let go, and bathe yourself in the sweet air of aural colors. As these colors caress your thoughts, your sense of being and awareness will stabilize into a state of solace. Reflect on the beauty of your past memories, and project into the grasp of your future goals. Whatever might be burdening your thoughts, you have my permission to let that go for a bit while we take this journey. 

An unending thanks to Andrew Hoffman for giving this mix some radio airplay at WRFI.ORG. You can download the radio version from THE SLOW DRIFT or listen to is streaming at Andrew's MIXCLOUD PAGE. Andrew's radio broadcasts add such a special nostalgic feel of yesteryear that I miss, but with music that I really want to hear without any commercials (the way radio should be). So very happy! 

I hope you enjoy our epic flight, and that you repeat the adventure in any way that you can. Support the artists, and keep dreaming. Peace.

Turn on, tune in, sleep...
