DECEMBER 22, 2020 UPDATE: I've uploaded this classic Inter-Dimensional Music mixtape from 2013 to the ID Music archive at

Original post from November 26, 2013:

Backcountry Chillout Vol. 1 is a new mixtape from Inter-Dimensional Music and Arthur Magazine featuring classic, new and previously unreleased music from Matthewdavid, Sean McCann, Ashan, $3.33, Thoughts On Air, Stag Hare and Sun Araw.

There’s a good reason that Inter-Dimensional Music is the number one New Age radio broadcast in the Big Bend region of Far West Texas: Since we first started transmitting on Marfa Public Radio in the spring of 2010, each song we’ve played has been selected with the goal of offering all the souls passing through the Chihuahuan Desert a soundtrack worthy of our luminescent high country vistas.

So whether you’re waiting in line at the Sierra Blanca Border Patrol checkpoint; watching the lights of Boquillas from the South Rim of the Chisos; channeling the spirit of curandera Jewel Babb deep in the Quitman Mountains; decoding starlight vibrations at the McDonald Observatory; vibing on the sky island rhythms of the Davis Mountains Preserve; documenting rock art sites off Casa Piedra Road; or if you’re just another lonely backpacker waiting for your man down by the Rio Grande, we’re here to score your time under the radiant heavens of the Trans-Pecos with a soundtrack of expansive ambience and transcendent psychedelic drone.

Thus, in collaboration with our old friends at Arthur Magazine, ID Music presents this first edition of Backcountry Chillout, a collection of contemporary New Age music hand-picked for arid wilderness viewing stations. So light that special incense you’ve been saving, reposition your moonlight gemstones however the plant mind directs you, point the speakers toward the screen door and adjourn to the porch. Leave us on repeat until everything’s back to tranquilo again.

Inter-Dimensional Music is North America's Gnarliest Mix of Heavy Mellow, Kosmische Slop, and Void Contemplation Tactics. Turn on at 99.1FM WQRT Indianapolis, Marfa Public Radio on the West Coast of Texas, and LOOKOUT FM Los Angeles. Eventually archived at

Hosted by Daniel Chamberlin: artist, writer, mindfulness guide, and yoga teacher. #CosmicChambo online everywhere.

Vaya con Gaia,

Daniel “Chambo” Chamberlin
