Universal Harmony

Universal Harmony with Dr Snikkers

As wholesome as a slice of freshly toasted sourdough, as empowering as winning an award at a school assembly, and infused with the same amount of positive vibes and aligned chakras as a Titirangi yoga class… dr.Snikkers brings you... Universal Harmony.
 
Modelled off the most epic of group hugs, the penguin huddle, Universal Harmony is a journey into the deep space between all of us and aims to connect each listener in a sort of audio penguin-like huddle through conscious music that spans both time and genre.  

Tuesday nights, from 10 'til midnight, are reserved for the odyssey that is... Universal Harmony.

Why we shouldn't watch news as often (or at all?). The addiction to the latest events may be a kind of illness that cuts us off from the real insights and information we need to lead good lives.​ You can spend your time in many more useful ways.

Leonard Charles - Breaking Over You feat. Guilty Simpson
Here's Leonard Charles on the making-of 'Breaking Over You': "I wanted to make something that sounded 'Lo-Fi' enough to work as a follow up to Basement Donuts, but also have an air of 'Hi-Fi' to it. It's a raw track that expresses the feeling of relationships. Guilty [Simpson] really came through and I feel like the end result is a balanced, going in-and-out of love track that anyone can relate to."

Yaeji - Drink I'm Sippin On
The song appears on 'EP2', released November 3 by NY based GODMODE. The New York City and Seoul-based producer Kathy Yaeji Lee usually creates house music and pop tunes, but her vocal delivery often sounds like rap. Her nonchalant vocals even bear similarities to 21 Savage’s chilling deadpan, although Yaeji offers a breathiness that floats over hard drums instead of sinking right into them.

Feature: A Different Take On The World
Where we highlight a different way of thinking in order to better understand our experience of the world...

Why Mindfulness Is A Superpower
Practicing mindfulness is one of the single most powerful things you can do for your wellbeing. Narrated by Dan Harris, author of 10% Happier, which takes readers on a journey of how he reduced stress without losing edge and found self-help that actually works. Harris shares how, like running in the 40s, mindfulness is the next big public health revolution.

Read by Alan Wilson Watts, who was a British philosopher, writer, and speaker, best known as an interpreter and populariser of Eastern philosophy for a Western audience.
