Occhi Brothers...

 

 

It's tribal it's soothing, it's ambient, it's ralaxing, and it's trance enducing

 

 

 

...

 

Too bad they are only intent on releasing 4 tracks to the world and then leaving us behind on our planet to rot!

 

Anyhow those four tracks are worth seeking. I think the one 1/2 album they ever did is called "Artificial Energy"

A quick note:

Solar Fields - Extended has a melody that moves my soul.. Its a small melody, only 4 notes I think.. But it is so well placed that it is awesome..

I love listening to that cd while going to college..

check out the 25 minute masterpiece Robert Rich - The Other Side of Twilight =)

 

it simply has to be Robert Rich' best track, but if anyone thinks he made something even better I'd like to know :D

 

one of those tracks that is really at the top of all ambient music...

To be honest i prefer his tracks with flute playing & manipulation + that melodies that defy western music.. e.g albums such as A Troubled Resting Place , Humidity , Calling Down The Sky , etc..

really hard to tell you a favourite, that would be like telling a mother to say which her most loved child is :D

No one mentioned Cell?

 

Cell - Phonic peace

 

This cd is my fav chill at the moment. I don`t know what it is with this cd, but it makes me travel to a whole different world. A beautiful world!

It has influence by ethnic rythms and instruments. And has some killer vocals.

Even some groovy beats

Every song on this cd is good... ahhh... :) Perfect!

Listened to Infinite Excursions on TIP today & it was really good. I have enjoyed all of TIP & TIP World's chilled releases. From Mystical Experiences to The Yeti to Spaceships of the imagination (except the bonus CD on part 2 was :blink: ) & Twelve!

I wish TIP World would release more relaxed album/comps

Let's see then. I'd recommend

 

Bluetech - Elementary Particles / Prima Materia

Various - Natural Born Chillers

Shulman - In Search Of A Meaningful Moment

 

From Aleph Zero. Deep sounds. The bluetech album has fantastic soundscapes and Natural Born Chillers will sit well with non psy friends too.

 

From Dakini Records I would say get the Sky Dancing series

 

Various - Sky Dancing: Nada Masala Vol. 1

Various - Sky Dancing: Nada Masala Vol. 2

Various - Sky Dancing: Nada Masala Vol. 3

 

also Makyo - Yakshini, Shringara, Vismaya & most recently Swara Mandala

 

and Adham Shaikh - Fusion and Puff Dragon - Sazanami which is my personal favourite.

 

These are all quite ethnic but it sounds like real ethnic not the pretentious ethnic crap you often hear in chillout these days.

 

Check out Androcell's albums Emotivision & Efflorescence for nice clean dubby sounds.

 

There are lots of albums on Liquid Sound Design which have beautiful psychadelic dub. The best ones are

 

Celtic Cross - Hicksville

Dub Trees - Nature Never Did Betray The Heart That Loved Her

Various - Butterfly Dawn

Various - A New Chapter In Dub Vol. 2 (The Secret Language Of Ordinary Objects)

Tripswitch - Circuit Breaker

Abakus - That Much Closer To The Sun

 

these are all albums I just listen to again & again. Fantastic sounds suits every mood I get into.

 

For music that is closer to real ambient try Ultimae records. Highlights include

 

The Fahrenheit Project series one, two, three, four & five. Part 6 will be released soon too  :)

Solar Fields' albums are amazing too. Very soft & trippy, spacey feelings.

Reflective Frequencies

Blue Moon Station

Extended

Leaving Home

 

Carbon Based Lifeforms - Hydroponic Garden

H.U.V.A. Network - Distances

Various - Albedo

Various - Oxycanta

 

are other highlights from Ultimae. It's a great label

 

If you want more varied upbeat chill then look at Twisted's sister label Backroom beats

 

Backroom Beats 1 & Backroom Beats 2 are very varied & interesting in style.

Hi-Fi Companions - Swingers In Paradise is very jazzy. VERY jazzy. It includes a track called Skyclad which I highly recommend, it sounds beautiful & melodious.

also try Flexitones - Joyrider for beats. It's a very cool album & another one that has been well recieved by non-psy folk.

 

These are the best labels I know for chill music but also check out

 

for ethnic

 

Asura - Lost Eden

Angel Tears - Way of the Mystic

Angel Tears - The Dreaming

Gaudi - Bass, Sweat & Tears

Entheogenic - Entheogenic

Entheogenic - Spontaneous Illumination

 

For melancholic chill try

 

M-Sphere - Electronic Relaxation

Amethystium - Odonata

Amethystium - Aphelion

Amethystium - Evermind

Synaesthesia - Ephemeral

Synaesthesia - Desideratum

Synaesthesia - Embody

 

on the IDM side go for

 

Kettel - My Dogan

& Secede - Tryshasla which both have beautiful melodies & cool beats.

 

Finally you can't go wrong with the chill out CD on Total Eclipse - Violent Relaxation which sounds just like total eclipse's early work in downtempo form.

& Union Jack - There Will Be No Armageddon has some trance tracks on it but also some magical chill.

Happy Chilling!

I was listening to this new album I downloaded, Oliver Jones - One Last Time, based on a recommendation I saw on this forum... anyhow, I somehow managed to download an album from a completely different artist - the Oliver Jones I downloaded is an amazing Canadian jazz artist. :) I was suprised at the mistake I made and wanted to go and read that recommendation thread again - and ran into this thread!

 

abasio - as usual, you amaze me with you quality responses. I will check out all of your recommendations.
