    Thank You for All of It

    Thank You for All of It

    "The greatest tribute to the dead is not grief, but gratitude," Thornton Wilder once wrote.



    Two months in, my grief for losing my best friend Chris is still ever-present. Nevertheless, realizing that painful separation was always going to be an inevitable price for attachment, I started attempting to derail the train of sorrow onto the path of gratitude.



    Chris's arrival and presence in my life sparked countless joyful moments. He got me through difficult times, not by doing anything extraordinary, but by just being there. He was an inspiration too. You're here listening to this show because Chris was there at the beginning with me in 2016, brainstorming how I might go about creating and branding it.



    For all of these things and everything else, I made this mix to say: thank you for all of it Chris! For the ups and downs, for the highs and lows, for the sights and sounds, for the inspiration to be all I can be, for believing in me and pushing me to realize my potential.



    And... I even tucked in here your favorite song: "When She Loved Me". They played it at your funeral's closing ceremony. I will always remember how the last piano note of this song and subsequent silence made me feel then: like it was curtains closing on our lives together. But now I realize it was the beginning of my journey to find you again, through sheer gratitude for our time together.

    Making this mix was a labor of love. If you feel like showing your appreciation, buy me a cup of a coffee (uppmixes.com/donate). You can also share this with your friends, rate it or leave a review on Apple Podcasts or wherever you subscribed to this podcast. Thank you.

Mostly consisting of instrumental ambient sounds and soft piano music, these mixes will help you completely relax your mind and body.

    Goodbye My Friend (Tribute to Chris Magwood)

    Goodbye My Friend (Tribute to Chris Magwood)

    On the eve of the 1st anniversary of when COVID-19 was declared a pandemic, I mourn the loss of my best friend who lost his short-lived fight to it last month. I made this mix in an attempt to process my shock, my disbelief that years of talking to him every single day have been undone, and came to an indisputable irreversible end, in a matter of a week. He was my rock through thick and thin and I never imagined losing him this soon, at the young age of 36.



    But I also made this for all of you out there who lost a dearly beloved, be it to any cause, foreseen or sudden. Much has been written about grief, but contending with it and living in a post-traumatic shock is something no one can prepare you for. Words escape me and I find myself in whirlwind of emotions that come in unpredictable waves. Emotions like anger, denial, sorrow, disbelief and regret. I go about my day feeling numb, aimless and dejected. I'm told time is a healer, but what if I don't want to be healed? I'm scared of our memories fading into oblivion.



    Maybe this mix will be a solace for all of us who grieve. It has the highs and lows, the ebbs and flows, the wave of emotions that come to define our experience living with such insurmountable loss.



    And to Chris I whisper:

    Goodbye, my friend; your journey has ended.

    Your struggles have now begun to cease.

    Time to close your eyes to happy dreams

    And wake to eternal peace.



    Goodbye, my friend; I don't want to let go.

    We've been together many years.

    It's hard to see what lies ahead.

    It's blurry through the tears.



    Our two souls are forever entwined.

    There will always be a hollow spot.

    I will miss you until it becomes my time.

    Imagine

    Imagine

    This mix is dedicated to all people who dream of a better world, one without the conflicts and fractions that plagued our world today.



    Sometimes I like to zone out and run my imagination wild and free. I like to think that one day, somehow humans will find a way to coexist. To be able to give and take. To share this planet Earth equally and fairly among all of us, and to nourish it so that our future generations will be able to do the same.



    So when you’re listening to this mix, just set back, relax and imagine. Imagine you’re in a wide open green field, setting next to a tree in the early hours of the day. It’s the break of dawn and the sky above you is slowly but surely starting to light up from darkness. The clouds are clearing up and the early rays of sunshine are passing through, touching upon the grass and creating moving waves of lights. And while you’re enjoying the breeze in this peaceful atmosphere, reflect on what it feels like to live in a city of hope, a city were people loved and where kind to each other. They don’t speak the same language, have the same color or share the same religion, but they’ve found a way to embrace and accept one another, for better and worse.



    I released this mix 9 years ago under my previous pseudonym DJ Seroton in a series called Unwind. It was one of my most popular Unwind mixes. Sensational, soulful and dreamy with influence from classical music, it was inspired by the fourth track of the same name by Gregorian.

    I Will Rise Up Now

    I Will Rise Up Now

    Happy new year everyone!



    This mix is inspired by a beautiful song called Love & Hate by Michael Kiwanuka, and the mix is dedicated to my brother Ahmad who recommended it when I asked him for his favorite song to make a mix around. I loved the empowering message of the song that I decided to make an uplifting mix themed around it.



    Let's make 2021 count!

    "Always on the outside, through a window looking in

    Never the right time, so the chance goes by again



    The lines begin to show, when we feel broken

    To move on we have to drop the pieces we're holding



    And no one is perfect

    You don't need to be strong, every single day



    Chase the wind again, knowing just what they'll say

    Don't care anymore, can't stay still anyway



    No one really knows along the way

    that the best things in life won't be, perfect anyway"



    From track #7 Seraphine, the Starry-Eyed Songstress

    My Secret Life

    My Secret Life

    I released this mix 9 years ago under my previous pseudonym DJ Seroton in a series called Unwind.  It was inspired by the first track, In My Secret Life, by the late Leonard Cohen.



    It was a personal mix to some extent. The following words by Gregory L. and Brenda Person sum up how I was feeling at the time. Perhaps you can relate to it. Either way, I hope you enjoy it. It certainly brings back memories for me.

    "There are so many secrets about life I will never know. I may never know what road I should have taken, the one less travelled or the one I know.

    There are the could haves, the maybes, should haves, never haves and must haves but will I ever know? Will I ever know for sure what life is really like? Will it be chock-full of promises or filled with disappointing doubts?

    Who am I? Where am I going? Will I travel down the road of life not making a single stop? Will I recognize that awkward moment when my future is in sight?

    I think before I bare my soul, I hold some back. Have I ever given my whole?

    I may not be the person you see. There is no way of knowing all the possibilities that life could be.

    Some of life's secrets are meant to be kept forever more."

    Thick As Thieves

    Thick As Thieves

    Most mixes I create are typically inspired by a single song that I hear and feel strongly about creating a themed mix around. This one, however, has two sources of inspiration.



    First, I stumbled upon the dreamy, hazy and romantic style of a band called Cigarettes After Sex (the name beats me!). They became an instant favorite and their song Falling in Love was crying out to be the star of a mix. A little after that, Hans Zimmer and co. mesmerized me in the emotionally epic soundtrack to the Netflix original film Hillbilly Elegy. This mix begins and ends with music from the soundtrack, which gives it a particularly high note to end on that I hope would leave you with a lingering sense of love and hope.
