Chill Music Club is the closest online substitute for that mysterious dude at the record shop who always had weird (but weirdly interesting) music tips.
Think of it as a place to read brutally honest 6-word album reviews. And to discover New & overlooked chill music. Music that's perfect to play while you work. OR for those moments you just want to sit back and zone out. Because REASONS.
But who the heck am I?
You might remember me as guy behind the vinyl subscription club That Special Record.
If you're like me music can make a huuuuuuuge difference in your workday AND your life.
In April 2020, in the middle of a nasty Global pandemic, I (unconsciously) started creating a little online archive of album reviews on Twitter.
I needed music to help me stay sane and focused. Ambient, drone, minimal-classical or anything calm and soothing for work.
So I tweeted this.
What started as a daily music recommendation thread ended evolving into something different.
After a month or two I stopped tweeting. I didn’t have the mental energy to write daily music tweets.
But I slowly started building a private little website (just for myself).
Here's how the whole thing worked.
Whenever I discovered a chilled record I liked, I'd write down a 6-word album review.
Then I'd create a page for each new record on my private little website.
Each page would include basic stuff like:
- 6-word album review,
- Album rating (On a scale of ✭ to ✭✭✭✭✭),
- Record label name, - Release date,
- Music Genre,
- Similar artists.
I also created mood tags so I could search for music based on my mood.
