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 Podomatic.com, 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 http://www.definitivedowntempo.com and subscibe to the RSS feed.
So Long and Thanks for All the Fish!

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.
Oh yaaaaa! The drink of the day… it is something I am looking so forward to. For those of you that have ever been on a cruise, you completely understand how fun the “drink of the day” can be, and this month’s downtempo podcast is inspired by just that.
You see, I have an upcoming vacation that I am excited about. I am not taking a cruise (this time) but, we are going to carry over that wonderful idea to our trip in to unspoiled Florida. Good scenery, good fun, good drinks, and good company… who could ask for more? Well I guess me, because a good soundtrack to listen to while sipping the drink of the day is always a good idea. That is what this month’s set is all about. It is leisure time! 🙂
You are going to find a menagerie of music styles in this month’s podcast. Jazz, Salsa, Bossanova (you know I love the bossas,) downtempo, chillout, funk… it is quite diverse. Is it cocktail hour yet?
This month is a follow up of sorts to my “August in the City” downtempo podcast from 2008. My girlfriend and I had tons of fun over the last year while she lived downtown . However, we are enjoying ourselves even more now that we live together out in the suburbs. The pace is a bit slower, and I have to say… that is right up my alley! 🙂
You will find some great chillout, downtempo, samba, bossa, and even a pretty funky MJ remix in this month’s podcast. Enjoy!
This month’s podcast is a continuation of my “Space Traveler” series and is once again dedicated to the folks over at Lounge Radio. I try to add an episode to this series every year and I figured it was time to slow things down, and, bring out the deeper side of downtempo for this month’s show.
I took a trip to Berlin in July and had an amazing time. I had the opportunity to visit a few clubs, lounges, and bars. It really seems that Germans love their Minimal Electronica. I was pretty surprised just how much that trip influenced my song selection this month. Almost inadvertently I found myself seeking out deeper, minimal types of music to mix along with ambient and chill out tunes. I am quite pleased with what came about from that subconscious decision. After listening to the complete episode, I am quite sure that Berlin has forever left its mark in my heart.
This month’s chillout podcast includes a wonderful selection of deeper chillout music, ambient, and what do you know… even a few minimal tunes. 🙂 Enjoy!
