Felix Manuel, better known as Djrum (pronounced as "drum," evolved from his initial DJ Rum handle) blends hip hop, house, jungle and bass seamlessly in his mixes, plus splices the DNA of techno, dubstep, garage and grime in an attempt to make them, in his words, “live inside each other” in his own productions. This blending is not frenetic, but slow and methodical, often including extended clips from movies, such as heard in The Miracle. With a relatively scant 9 EPs and singles, including two splits, and one album to his name, you can get hear more of the scope of Felix Manuel's musical tastes from his mixes... [more inside]

And some days we're just not feeling it and we don't even know why. When I'm feeling down one thing I like to do is play a game. I feel like games can really bring us together. - Life got you down? Play a relaxing game of Dungeons & Dragons with action star Vin Diesel.
real chill situations: fair trade dog bed. tomato plants coming in real good. you can put the pinot in the creek to keep it cold.
Mezzowave. super sensory chill out lounge for relaxation and balancing the space. subsonic resonance and morphing visuals. Think Boobah meets SomaFM. [Flash, psychedlica]
The 2005 Chillits sets have been posted! This little Northern California sister of the Big Chill Festival is possibly my favorite annual music event. Even though the sets from this and last year are fantastic, my favorite is still the Mix Master Morris (aka the Irresistible Force) set from 2003. Ideal for fans of ambient chill and groove salad.
