This guest mix for Ambient Music Guide comes from Uplifting Pills (Alaeddin Hallak) who runs the Uplifting Pills website, app and Podcast.

The new mix is his latest in the Calm Pills mix series. He writes:

"It’s titled Ascension, and it’s inspired by The Endless, a 2018 supernatural indie film that made an impression on me. The mix uses several tracks from the score and sprinkles key passages from the dialog throughout. My intention was to recreate the surreal feeling I had watching the film through a music. Fun fact: the mix runs for the exact same duration as the film."

The Calm Pills series is" beatless ambient and atmospheric journeys designed for complete relaxation of mind and body. Perfect for any occasion when you need soothing unobtrusive music."

But it's also good music and I'm excited to share it with you.

Guest mix: Rainshine by low light mixes

Rainshine is another exclusive guest mix for Ambient Music Guide by low light mixes.

low light mixes is Dave Michuda of Wisconsin, USA. Dave has fascinating taste in downtempo and ambient sounds - including loads of artists I've never heard before - and has an uncanny knack for creating highly evocative mix titles.

As with last time (June 2015), we gave each other a themed title as a challenge to create a mix around. I gave him the mix title Rainshine.

He writes:

This mix is pretty self-explanatory based on the track titles. The first half is all rain songs and the second half transitions to sunlight. I added some rain field recordings to a few of the songs but most of them already had rain sound fx in the original track.

My reciprocal contribution for low light mixes is called The Color Of Space - listen to it here.
