Hallucinogen - E


It is beatless! Man if you want sad chillout get shpongle - "Are you shpongled" album and Shpongle - "Dorset perception" track, the tracks of are you shpongle have sad melodies, for example the track vapour rumours which is my all time favourite and dorset perception is one of the saddest tracks i heard.


Check also some oforia ambient stuff out, very sad also and check old electric universe ambient works, also very melanchonic psychedelic ambient. I don´t know of other but i wanted ask this question also.

Unstable Elements-Technical Illusions is a great melancholic ambient album. I made a review in the review section, check it out.


Also from psymbient check out Psyfactor-Endless Universe for new stuff and Astralasia music from old stuff.

Of course FSOL is a great choice especially Dead Cities.

Raison D'etre - In Emptiness


Raison D'Être is pretty mystic/melancholic in general. Try his "Mesmerized In Sorrow" track aswell if you like...


I also find some Carbon Based Lifeforms tracks somewhat melancholic. MOS 6581 for example...

maybe "rip van hippy"



Rip Van Hippy is sad ambient?

I reather think it's uplifting,...Oh well...


Try Ambient Meditations 1, 2, and 3. especially the 3rth then.Dead Can Dance - Indus for example, really can't get much sadder imho.


Also, Banco De Gaia - Big Men Cry


And Angel Tears Vol.4


And I think Soul Vibaration vol.1 has some very moody elements like in Manasseh - Ribbit Teacha or Nagual Sound Experiment - Chimera etc... (It's not really sad, just very down to earth) I love this one very much!


And offcoarse like Lauryn allready mentioned Asura - Lost Eden I think is very melancholic too.

Off the top of my head I can wholeheartedly recommend you Mago - Definition Of Raw Moments From A Different Perspective, I've said it once and I will say it again, imo this is a masterpiece. I gave it a 5 out of 5 on discogs, listened to it so many times already and didn't even slightly get bored with it. It's not ambient or chill out per se, yet it has a very sedating effect on me. Another one would be Desiderii Marginis - That Which Is Tragic And Timeless. I'll probably remember some more later...
