depends.. I always have a hard time finding the ´favourite´.... it changes depending on the mood, situation, etc...

 

lately I´ve been digging bluetech, androcell... this year the ones I most listened to was Ott and Abakus.... Im waiting to arrive Adham Shaikh (which is for sure excellent), the new Gabriel Le Mar, the new pitch black cd and the new sounds from the ground cd... maybe some of them will become favourites..

 

I´ve been listening a lot to some compilations too, like Wider Horizons, or Natural Born Chillers...

 

and different more world-like chill, as Gaudi -bass sweat and tears have been constantly playing in my stereo too...

I definitely like the songs on "are you shpongled?" the most when it comes to ambient.

 

But apart from shpongle i wanna mention that "Wonderground" by Healer from 2000 is an ambient cd that has a special place in my heart.

 

I also like twisted record's "Eclipse compilation" from 1998

 

But my all-time favorite single ambient track has always been, and probably always will be "2046" by Saafi Brothers :)

Considering it's composed and produced in 1981-1982 it is indeed impressive stuff.

Pete Namlook, The Orb, FSOL, Tangerine Dreams, Mixmaster Morris, Mr Roach :) Would be my absolute favourites, but there are so MANY good ones out there and I dont have the energy to write them all down :)

I don't know why, but i think most of you just say their fav. ambient artist. Yea it's not bad, but i mean most of all music for relaxation after strong party. For me it's not everytime pure ambient sometimes i relax with Transwave or Astral projection maybe it sound strange, but when you play with slow bass this flying melody can realy hipnotize you :D

When we talk about ambient i stil couldn't find anything like "Ambient meditation" by Return to the source. For me it's the ultimate meditation B)

yes, play a fast psytrance with dirty and strong baseline, recorded for 45rpm, drop it down to 33 - it's pretty hipnotic. i think dutch folks called it "new beat" in early '90s...?
