Beryll, Pt. 1

Planetarium had its 9-year anniversary this week. I took some deep dives into 2021 releases again (almost finished finally!) and discovered some real gems for a new Geophon trilogy. The meditative album by Jon Hopkins stood out to me in particular. I took almost every track from it and combined it with a potpourri of autumnal ambient. The three parts of “Beryll” will be released over the course of the winter.

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.
