This mix is dedicated to all people who dare to dream of a better world, a one without the conflicts and wars that plagued our world today. There’s no denying that, as everyday goes by, the human race is descending into unprecedented levels of hatred and intolerance. Look no further than the Arab Spring uprisings, no one could have imagined what those dictators were capable of descending into just to protect their worldly and vanishing possessions. It’s unthinkable, yet we’ve seen it with our own eyes and we struggled to believe that our own kind is capable of such horrendous acts.
When all is said and done, 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.
When creating this mix, I wanted to expand my selection of down-tempo genres, while focusing on not just mixing great songs, but also songs that maintained the overall mood of the mix. You’ll find that this mix on the whole is a bit more mellow compared to Vol 1 and Vol 2 of this series. So it’s more suitable for times when you truly want to relax your mind and body.
