This is a track from 2014 I recently found in my pocket and I don’t really know if I ever put it on the internet. It’s not my usual style – it’s influenced by Apparat/Moderat and has some obligatory piano in it. Maybe you’ll like it. 🙂
The second half of the year has begun and every new month means a new WAVES on FriskyRadio! This time I picked some very special pad tunes from Night Note, Adam Francis, Sonic Scope and Numedian.
Having released 3 albums this year, my good friend Ingo Vogelmann is a guest in the playlist again with 3 tunes. Of course you can look forward to hearing some epic orchestra or some chilled beats again, but the piano isn’t as wide spread as usual on the show.
So don’t miss this episode and tune into FriskyRadio CHILL on Sunday, August 6th, 2023 at 7 a.m. ESST / 1 p.m. CEST. Enjoy your Chillout Sunday!
The new month has started and that means the next episode of „Waves“ is just around the corner. As you know the show in the past years it brings a lot of styles of chillout music. Once again we will start with very chilled Ambient, switch over to some relaxed beats, put in some piano melodies and end with ambient sounds again. As we are entering the dark time of the year the music is a little bit darker with Hawkdream, Olafur Arnalds, Solar Sound, Max Tarasov, Airbase or Eternall.
Recently I discovered a new chillout label named Space Music where you can find music by Solar Sound, L)Vladimir(P or Max Tarasov. I couldn’t find an online source for their music, but you should listen to the show!
So make sure you tune in to FriskyRadio CHILL on Sunday, December 4th, 2022 at 7 a.m. EST / 1 p.m. CET.
The next opportunity to completely relax is just around the corner! Waves will return after the 11 years anniversary (piano only episode) with a man who got his show Sounds Paradise just after I had him as a guest last year. Sergey Tarasov has proven that he can play the best chillout and thus I invited him back!
Of course there’s another hour of ambient, piano and pads for you ahead with me. I prepared a mix with the likes of Kori, Ferry Corsten’s new project FERR, Yusuke Teranishi and a small tribute to Daft Punk, who have announced their parting last week. Also I included a tune by Dirk Maassen. His was the last concert I heard in March 2020, just before the pandemic hit hard in Germany.
So get ready and tune into the Frisky CHILL channel on Sunday at 7 a.m. EST / 1 p.m. CET.

Every February it’s a special Waves show for me. In a week I’ll have my 11th anniversary with the show and on FriskyRadio in general! Sometimes I have some special guests, sometimes I play some special. So after having pianist and music producer Xeuphoria last year, this time I picked another pianist. Classical Glass is composing and playing his music with a scope from classical piano over ambient piano to orchestral music. I asked him about some of is most beloved own tunes and we compiled them.
Around this series of pieces I arranged some of the greatest modern piano music I know – from Dave Greening, Frances Shelley, Marco Lucchi or Olafur Arnalds to Stein Thor, Vince Forwards and the unforgettable Ludovico Einaudi.
So I prepared two hours of just piano music for you to enjoy your Chillout Sunday. Tune in on 7th February 2021, 7 a.m. EST / 1 p.m. CET to FriskyRadio CHILL and get relaxed!
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!
7 a.m. EST / 1 p.m. CET Sergey Tarasov

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 musician Xeuphoria 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!
Be prepared for this week’s Waves to crash down on you on Sunday, February 2nd, 2020 at 7 a.m. EST / 1 p.m. CET on the FriskyRadio CHILL channel! Frisky also interviewed me about my anniversary.
7 a.m. EST / 1 p.m. CET Xeuphoria
8 a.m. EST / 2 p.m. CET Addliss
