Great thread, it was high time we discuss impressive downtemppo tracks because in my opinion they are at least as expressive as uptempo tracks or maybe even more expressive. My all time downtempo favourites are as followed:

 

 

This ss a very impressive downtempo track by Astral Projection that has a unique sound. The sound is great for winter listenings during sunny autumn and winter days. The sound is mildly melancholic and a bit abstract in sound. The track is very floating and not very linear. The people from Astral Projection put a lot of effort into this track to make it sound timeless and complete without too much repetition or boring elements. Every second of this track sounds interesting and there is no part where yo could say Astral Projection acted carelessly.

 

 

Lunatic by Zerotonine is a very high quality downtempto tracks with a very clear sound. The rythm and strings are very magical in sound and really send you into a journey. The main meldoy of this track sounds a bit clubby, but very magical and nice in sound. After the main melody in the middle of the track you can hear an addition to the main melod that makes the song very interesting and complete. I liek the complete and harmonious sound elements of Lunatic and the dreamy atmosphere make that track one of the best downtempo tracks.

 

there are many more impressive downtempo tracks that I will post here later on. I wont post Shpongle tracks since I´d have to post 5 tracks at leas because I don´t have only one Shpongle favourite.

Hahaha nice one, same here, just kind of assumed anyone looking at this thread would be familiar with Shpongle. Nice suggestions and write-ups, I don't have either track in my collection, definitely interested in them.

I am glad you like my tracks, they are definatly some of the best downtempto tracks I know. About Shpongle, indeed many people know them, and we´d have to post too many tracks in one post.

Forget all the psychill (not my cup of tea - too many cliche's - psy pitched down)... This is proper down-tempo when it's best! Beats Astral Projection's attempt to make down-tempo any day!

 

 

And while we are at it. Nothing really compares to The Orb (Here's my favorite album of theirs).

too cliched? i don't know what psychill u listen to, but in my book it's the most diverse genre in the psychedelic territory

anyway, this year gave us again some very nice releases

my favourite till now is Ajja+Cosmosis with their Giger Alien Jam's

 

 

i also recommend to give Kaminanda a few spins (one of today's talented producers imo), his music crosses so many borders easily
