Calm Pills + Planetarium

For 2020, I planned to invite more guests to my regular shows than usual. A perfect opportunity just happened, as I was approached by my Mixcloud neighbour Calm Pills aka Alaeddin Khalik. His mixes appeared on FRISKY under his DJ Seroton moniker. However, the Calm Pills series on Mixcloud is a new, a bit slower, but still very harmonious direction. I think his 25th set which he submitted as my FRISKY entry for February is stunning and captures the Planetarium vibe very well.

2019 in Review

A lot of courses were set in 2019: Helioscope and Planetarium both introduced their Select program in June, Turbobache took a year off and Distant tried to find a good release cycle. This was a year the Planetarium scene of ambient and modern classical music has showed more than ever that it is the one I like to and will promote the most.

Thank you for the continued support! We’re off to a new decade. We’ll leave Distant behind (a final retrospective mix will probably be done this Summer), but there are still lots of unplayed Planetarium and Helioscope tracks in my library and great releases to arrive in this new year.
