RH119 - Chillhouse Funky Treats (Chillhouse Mix)

June 12th, 2018

Did you hear about the rose that grew from a crack in the concrete? Proving nature's laws wrong, it learned to walk without having feet. Funny, it seems to by keeping it's dreams; it learned to breathe fresh air. Long live the rose that grew from concrete when no one else even cared. - Tupac Shakur

RL173 - Vintage Lounging (Vintage Lounge Compilation)

June 4th, 2018

No mockery in this world ever sounds to me so hollow as that of being told to cultivate happiness. What does such advice mean? Happiness is not a potato, to be planted in mould, and tilled with manure. Happiness is a glory shining far down upon us out of Heaven. She is a divine dew which the soul, on certain of its summer mornings, feels dropping upon it from the amaranth bloom and golden fruitage of Paradise. - Charlotte Brontë, Villette

RH117 - Fathomless (Deep House Mix)

May 19th, 2018

There are so many ways to be brave in this world. Sometimes bravery involves laying down your life for something bigger than yourself, or for someone else. Sometimes it involves giving up everything you have ever known, or everyone you have ever loved, for the sake of something greater.

But sometimes it doesn't.

Sometimes it is nothing more than gritting your teeth through pain, and the work of every day, the slow walk toward a better life.

That is the sort of bravery I must have now.

- Veronica Roth

RH116 - Souled Out (Soulful House Mix)

May 18th, 2018

For what it’s worth: it’s never too late or, in my case, too early to be whoever you want to be. There’s no time limit, stop whenever you want. You can change or stay the same, there are no rules to this thing. We can make the best or the worst of it. I hope you make the best of it. And I hope you see things that startle you. I hope you feel things you never felt before. I hope you meet people with a different point of view. I hope you live a life you’re proud of. If you find that you’re not, I hope you have the courage to start all over again. - Eric Roth

Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn't do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover. - H. Jackson Brown Jr

RL171 - Congruent Factors (Lounge Mix)

May 14th, 2018

Due to a terrible mixup I was forced to delete the version of this episode I uploaded yesterday (13/05/2018). For some reason the episode was linked to RL170 - Lounge Funkworks. Apologies for any confusion/inconvenience caused. 

Now about the mix itself. Firstly, I did this one intuitively in terms of the transitions from song to song. As a result, not every transition is beatmatched. Some are matched from sound frequency, others by feel. I have listened to it several times and overall, the flow is smooth and nothing jars the senses. I hope you enjoy it,

Finally, no matter how knowledgeable anyone sounds in terms of their philosophy towards life (specifically Scientific versus Spiritual), never forget that no one has all the answers! Ultimately its for you to go out and arm yourself with the information you need in order to come up with a philosophy that is workable for you. This is important because once you strip the Universe of all persons and things that are not you, you will find yourself standing alone in front of the Abyss. In that moment, The Personal Philosophy I am talking about will be the only thing left that is You. Its important and it is worth working out instead of accepting the views and theories of others wholesale. You will live or die based on your Personal Philosophy towards life and if that is the case, then giving that power to someone should be unthinkable.  If, like me, you are constantly evolving such a Personal Philosophy, in the private space of your own Mind, I hope, for all our sakes, that it has enough elements of beauty and goodness to make you a productive member of society. Such elements do not only improve our lives, but they do, in their own subtle way, make the environment around us just that little more Beautiful and Good. I wish you all the Beauty and Goodness you desire this week. Have an outstanding one!

RH115 - Chilled Facets of House (Chilled House Mix)

April 23rd, 2018

This being human is a guest house. Every morning is a new arrival. A joy, a depression, a meanness, some momentary awareness comes as an unexpected visitor...Welcome and entertain them all. Treat each guest honourably. The dark thought, the shame, the malice, meet them at the door laughing, and invite them in. Be grateful for whoever comes, because each has been sent as a guide from beyond. - Rumi
