As 2021 comes to a wrap, it feels like we should be seeing the pandemic off, but the reality is anything but. With more imposed restrictions coinciding with the holiday season, I released this mix to hopefully provide solace to those celebrating alone or unable to spend it with some of their loved ones.

Musically, this mix features 3 tracks from a masterpiece new album by Jon Hopkins called Music for Psychedelic Therapy. Test Card returns with two intriguing pieces from his latest album Music For The Towers. Finally, Martin Domas opens the mix up with a track that inspired this mix. As always, please support the artists you like by streaming or purchasing their music.

Also, did you know that I have another podcast called Chill Pills (chill.upliftingpills.com). It features the same quality of craftmanship and careful curation you've come to expect from this show but focuses on more genres of music spanning chillout, lofi chill hop, chillstep and lounge.
