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.

6 Jahre Planetarium : Stationary Travels

Brian Housman, curator of the Stationary Travels blog and Mixcloud channel, has been a key influence for my Planetarium sets for many years. I asked him for a submission to the 6-year anniversary of Planetarium (which happened last Friday on November 1) and he kindly put together an entrancing journey through the past six years of ambient music up to very recent releases. It’s an honour to have him back on the decks after the 6-year Helioscope celebration back in 2017.
