[UPDATE 07/09/19: Just remembered… I had a dream a few nights ago where I was setting my watch to 4:44.

And, just now, on my WordPress stats page… check out the vertical column of 444.

It also looks a bit like the number 11 is on the left (two thick blue bars). Apparently when 444 is with 11, it’s a magic reinforcement.]

At the peak of my Spiritual Awakening around Thursday 22nd August 2019, I kept seeing a certain number everywhere…


During the course of one evening, I must have seen this number at least 7 times. Every time I saw these three number 4s, the numbers seemed to be bright and glowing, they were standing out so much to me.

I was blown away by this, so I WhatsApp’d a friend of mine who I knew was into Numerology (that’s how I know the date this happened).

After a while, I realised (intuited?) it actually seemed to be 44 followed shortly afterwards by another 4.

I had no idea what this all meant, only that it felt very significant to me.

Bear in mind, I had been experiencing drug-induced psychosis for about 9 days by this point. Make of that what you will.

Earlier today, I blogged about Flume’s Mini Mix, which aired on BBC Radio 1 last night. Flume has been my favourite music producer for the last couple of years. Here’s the Radio 1 website:

Notice anything? Let’s look closer…


Also, I’ve just noticed… at the start of the mix, Annie Mac says:

“…So he’s done us a Mini Mix that is 4/4, which is significant…”

Just a coincidence? Probably…

… But also very cool.

[UPDATE 08/09/2019: After a quick bit of Googling, one of the possible meanings of seeing 444 everywhere is that you’re experiencing a Spiritual Awakening. That’s exactly what I believe has been happening to me for the last few weeks.]

[UPDATE: Want to see something spooky?]

For the last couple of years, Flume has been my favourite music producer. He has a very unique, kinda weird sound. For me, he’s totally reinvigorated dance music, injecting emotional energy into our unconscious minds.

“It’s not hyperbole to say Flume is a creative genius.”

And last night he dropped a 5 minute Mini Mix on Annie Mac’s BBC Radio 1 show called This Is 4/4.

I love it!

It includes the tune Badd by Dark Sky, which coincidentally I added to my Spotify favourites just a few weeks ago.

The Mini Mix also includes Flume‘s own Let You Know, released a couple of months ago, which is just fucking epic, FACT.

Annie also revealed that Flume has been working on a new project which will be revealed soon. I simply cannot wait. SO EXCITED!

If you’d like to hear more of Flume‘s work, I highly recommend his own playlist on Spotify, This Is: Flume. It includes pretty much his entire back catalogue!

Back in 2014, a talented musician by the name of Porter Robinson released a 2 hour mix on BBC Radio 1. It contained an eclectic range of Porter’s favourite electronica, curated carefully over several months.

That mix has a special place in my heart. It’s still probably my favourite ever Essential Mix, 5 years later. It’s just so original-sounding. The music has so much emotional depth, so much soul.

My favourite thing in the world is to lie down on my bed, listening to music on a pair of high quality headphones. I just allow my mind to drift off into the music. I’d estimate I’ve done that over 100 times to this mix. It feels timeless to me.

[UPDATE 07/09/2019: Porter’s mix includes several tunes by the musical genius, Flume. Check out my blog post from today about Flume’s music.]

Listen to Porter’s Essential Mix via SoundCloud below.

Now, it’s my turn. I’ve created a spiritual successor to Porter’s mix, using my own current favourite tunes.

N.B. For clarity, my mix below is neither recommended nor endorsed by Porter Robinson or the BBC. It’s not got much to do with them really, other than they were the inspiration.

I call this mix SoulMelt. It’s packed with emotion. It’s a journey into the soul. From within your unconscious, this music is capable of harmonising your mind, body and soul with your higher self (at least I think so).

by yours truly, Rock Bollinger

Listening Instructions: My mix is a 2 hour playlist on Spotify. I strongly recommend logging in to Spotify to listen, otherwise you’ll only get a 30 second clip of each track.

You can listen for free (with ads) or listen ad-free with Spotify Premium. You can either listen to the tracks in the order they’re listed, or for a bit more variety, hit the Shuffle button (that’s what I usually do). I also recommend having Spotify’s crossfade setting set to around 7-10 seconds so you don’t get so much silence in-between tracks.

There’s so much I could write about each of these tracks and what they mean to me. Perhaps sometime I will do.

As far as I’m concerned, the absolute jewel in the crown of this mix is Places by Catnip Cloud and Tiril Hognestad. I’ve analysed in-depth why I love this tune so much in this blog post.
