Chill with The Chola Archive – Definitive Downtempo

A Music podcast
Good podcast? Give it some love!
I have been Digital DJ'ing for about three years and have found myself being drawn in to the chilled out worlds of Lounge, NuJazz, House, and Latin Rhythm. The Chill with The Chola podcast was a monthly show in which I explored all things jazzy, funky, and chilled out! The final episode debuted in March 2010 and an archive was brought online of the entire podcast at Definitve Downtempo. This is the RSS feed for that archive.

The mixes that you will find in this archive are a good choice when you need to create a colorful backround for great conversation with friends during cocktails or dinner. They are also great to throw on when you just need to chill, catch up on some reading, or have a nice nap. This is not Ambient, you need ryhthm, but not in your face. Its jazzy, its smooth, heck, it can even be progressive. But, these mixes will never take you too deep and will never create anything but POSITIVE VIBES. :) Enjoy, Chola

So Long and Thanks for All the Fish 03-03-10 The_Chola_So_Long_and_Thanks_for_all_the_Fish_030310 Well here it is, the final episode of the Chill with The Chola podcast. After 3 years of podcasting, I have decided that it is time to bring this project to an end and focus on other projects. I have enjoyed producing the podcast, but, I have to admit that my heart has not been fully in to producing the monthly show for some time now. I continue to enjoy downtempo music and I intend to release mixes from time to time, just not on, not on a monthly basis, and not under the “Chill with The Chola” name. An ARCHIVE of the entire Chill with The Chola podcast has been brought online over at Definitive Downtempo so that you may access old episodes. Any future releases that I make will also be available on that site under the “Definitive Downtempo” title and category. I would like to thank all of the loyal listeners of the Chill with The Chola podcast for making this project so much fun. If you would like to stay in touch, head on over to and subscibe to the RSS feed. So Long and Thanks for All the Fish! Here is the final tracklist… 01. Trotter- Is The Feeling (Umbo Remix) 02.

Best of 2009 12-17-09 The_Chola_Best_of_2009_121709 First off, my apologies for the delay in posting the “Best of 2009” podcast. A bad case of bronchitis really took the wind out of my sails (and my lungs for that matter.) Since I am already so late in posting this episode, I am going to forgo my typical “Best of the Best” editorial and just let the music speak for itself. For those of you that are regular listeners here at the Chill with The Chola podcast, you know that the “Best of” shows are a culmination, and celebration, of a year’s worth of great music. For some of you that may just be joining us, the “Best Of” shows are a great way to get an idea of what this podcast is all about. So, be sure to check out the Best of 2008 and the Best of 2007 as well. Each of the artists in this month’s podcast are excellent. As always, I encourage you to seek them out, learn about them, listen to their music, and support them by purchasing their music. Here are the Best of 2009… 01. Gregor Salto ft. Helena Mendes– Mas Que Nada 02. Kenichiro Nishihara– From Time To Time ft. Gregg Green 03. The Hole In The Wall Gang- Apache King 04. Kendall Station– Tether 05. Jazzanova– Little Bird ft. Jose James 06. Ohm Guru– Please, Please, Please 07. Anam-owili Eger– The Moment 08. Quantic And His Combo Barbaro– Arianita 09. Zuco 103– Volta (Bossacucanova Remix) 10.

Journey Into Space Music 11-05-09 The_Chola_Journey_in_to_Space_Music_110509 This month I decided it was time for me to explore one of my favorite styles of ambient music… “SPACE MUSIC.” Now I know that my “Space Traveler Series” touches on the spacey side of ambient music, however, those episodes are still very much tempo driven. This month’s downtempo podcast is comprised of music all but devoid of true tempo. The songs are much more freeform for the most part, only really driving tempos using arpeggiators or rhythmic sound. Space Music creates massive soundcapes that invoke mental imagery of far away worlds, stars, and nebulae. I have been a fan of Space Music since I was a child. I think the first time I ever heard this style of music was during a car ride home from the beach while listening to “Hearts of Space” on NPR… I was fascinated with it. I have tinkered with my own space music throughout the years and decided to include an original, improvisational piece of music that I created and recorded on the fly for this podcast. Here is a link to download my song free of charge… Download Here. While I am certainly an amateur at producing this wonderful music, I must say that it is an amazing experience to sit down to a keyboard and create it on the fly. Surrounded by LED’s, LCD’s, blinky lights, sliders, knobs… it almost feels as if you are piloting your own spacecraft through a universe of sound that you are creating with your own creative mind. I have a real appreciation for just how complicated it is to control so many timbers, morphing between sounds, tempos (or lack thereof,) keys… worlds… all the while keeping it all together, in a freeform flow of consciousness. Composers like Serrie, Gulan, Brennan, etc are true masters of this craft. I invite you to put on a pair of headphones, turn off the lights, lay down, hit play… and drift away in to a wonderful universe of sound. Don’t worry, you will be back home in a little over 80 minutes. Here is this month’s tracklist… 01. Altus– For All Time 02. Kendall Station– Tether 03. Ulrich Schnauss– In Between the Years 04. Andrew Lahiff– Static Neon Flow 05. Gulan– The Black Hole 06. Jonn Serrie– Stratos 07. Chad Helenthal– Ambient Space Unknown 08. Thom Brennan– Raingardens This Podcast is licensed under a Creative Commons Attribution-NonCommercial-ShareAlike 2.5 License to support the interests of the original featured artists.
