Over years of mixing ambient music, I have come to fall in love not only with certain artists, but labels who publish troves of ambient gold. This mix begins a series of albums named after some of my favorite labels.
To start us off is Imaginary North, a Toronto-based label created by Daniel Field, who also produces exquisite ambient works as Kilometre Club. Established in 2022, Imaginary North focuses on bringing together like-minded musicians across the world to create compilations, collaborations, and individual pieces of music. The label is not afraid to experiment with ideas and concepts that transcend the typical album release.
No where is this clearer than the release I want you to check out of this label. It’s called Today Until Tomorrow. Across 92 tracks and 84 artists, it features 24 hours of ambient, drone, experimental, electronic, neo-classical, post-rock, and everything in between. 24 hours. One full day. An entire rotation of this planet we call home. This has to be one of my favorite ambient albums of all time. Check it out wherever you get your music!
Making this mix was a labor of love. If you feel like supporting Calm Pills online radio & podcast or showing your appreciation, buy me a cup of a coffee ☕. You can also share this with your friends, rate it or leave a review on Apple Podcasts or wherever you subscribed to this. Thank you.
Also, did you know that I have another podcast called Chill Pills. It features the same quality of mixing craftmanship but focuses on more genres of downtempo music spanning chillout, lofi chill hop and lounge.
