The year 2020 is coming to an end and the next year is already unfolding. The first show of the year 2021 is already prepared for your first days. I put together all the best Chillout and Ambient tunes I found and played in 2020, so you can ready yourselves for music by Night Note, Vince Forwards, Classical Glass, Cosmaks, Chicane, Firas Tarhini, Robert Nickson and many many more!
So take your time on the first Sunday and start 2021 with chilled music on FriskyRadio CHILL. The show starts at 7 a.m. EST / 1 p.m. CET.
The novel coronavirus has the world in its hands. But I can assure you, Waves is here to calm your panic down! The spring edition of my Ambient/Chillout show is about to bring pads and synths through your speakers that will let you know: In the end everything will be fine.
With me I have the Russian Sergey Tarasov, whose tracks I have played throughout the years more than once. His production style is Chillout Trance mostly, but in his DJ sets he features some glitchy tunes with deep pads and rumbling beats, too. It is a revelation hearing his selection! In 2019 he already played a Chillout Sundays set on Frisky.
The second hour is music I picked with music by Stefan Grossmann, Astroleaf, DJ Shah, Jellis & Subsets and some other great artists. There is nothing to be missed here!
Take your time on Sunday, April 5th, 2020, at 7 a.m. EST / 1 p.m. CET to switch to FriskyRadio CHILL and lower your heartbeat. You deserve it!

From time to time I like to feature some artists as special guests on my show. Most of them provide their own mixes, but some are just producers. This time on the next WAVES show I will present Ambient artist The Quietist who is hailing from Northern England. He produces music ranging from drone Ambient to classical music with strings and vowl singing. But mind you, The Quietist is always about the big reverb, the big hall sound, while being musically minimalistic.
Here’s what he has to say about himself:
My name is Phil Ward and I live on the Wirral in the North west of England.
I have listened to ambient music and electronic music since I was a child – I was first inspired by Jean Michel Jarre, Kraftwerk, Tangerine Dream and The Art of Noise. As the ambient scene developed I listened to The Orb, Orbital, Future Sound of London and artists on the Warp label. Most recently I have enjoyed Pete Namlook’s FAX label and the long open soundscapes created by Tetsu Inoue. I also enjoy meditation music and natural sounds.
I am striving to create something beautiful. I usually improvise when I find an instrument or noise I like and gently build on top, layer by layer. I edit after I have listened to the track on headphones a few times. Generally my first take is the best – I like to feel the music and be taken on its journey as I write. I often feel that the music writes itself!
So in the first hour there will be tunes by The Quietist and the second will feature some Ambient, some Chillout, some beat music that reflects all the relaxation you need on your Sunday. I hope you will tune into FriskyRadio CHILL on Sunday, March 1st, 2020, at 7 a.m. EST / 1 p.m. CET!
And if you like the music, you can still head over to The Quietist – Bandcamp and buy his music for very little money!
Writing it down, but I still can’t believe it: On the next Sunday I will have my 10-year-anniversary with Waves on FriskyRadio! I’ve had so many great shows, so many touching moments – be it with other artists or some fans. I’ve had great guests artist on my show and played so many fascinating and soothing tunes, but this time it will be different once again!
Located in Southern England is the chillout and piano musicianXeuphoria who produces and plays instruments alike. I asked him about being my guest and he delivered a stunning performance of 1 hour piano improvisation! I guess, this will be on heavy rotation for me for quite some time.
So at first you will hear this hour of pure piano and after that I will play you some of the best Trance Ambient tunes you have heard. Just last year I delivered a similar set, but there are more amazing tracks to be played!
Since 2018 has been pretty calm with announcements and music around me, I’ll try to change that in the upcoming year. Let’s begin with January WAVES next Sunday which will feature a long time friend of mine: Pete Severano. He has played many live events with me and we even produced several tracks together (alongside with another friend). Now he sent me his latest, unreleased Chillout mix with so many different styles, but they still fit together! I couldn’t resist but ask him back.
Of course you can expect another hour of Chillout from me. I prepared some of the best tracks I have heard and played in 2018 to give a little recap on the Chillout year. So you just have to tune in on #ChilloutSunday to the FriskyRadio CHILL channel at 7 a.m. EST / 1 p.m. CET and we will light up your weekend!

We have already reached midyear, so WAVES is returning for summer! I have compiled full two hours of chilled music starting with space waves by Gravitation later some piano/guitar vibes by relaxdaily and Ambient Trance by Magdelayna who has done a rework again.
I really look forward to that show, so tune in on July 1st, 2018 to the FriskyRadio CHILL channel at 7 a.m. EST / 1 p.m. CET.
