New Ultimae-like music

Recommended Posts

Well, since Connect.Ohm and the great Circular album, it is pretty silent from their front... lots of the latest releases were also less good as before imo (latest Asura & Aes Dana), so I was wondering...

Where can I find more Ultimae like ambient of last few years? So, very atmospheric, IDM influenced, deep, still melodic stuff... no Altar/world music influenced stuff... It can be pure electronic to the bone :D I want more... :)
Ambient freaks, speak! :)

You should be knowing these already, but anyways:


These are the few that I very much enjoy, more than Ultimae records stuff.


Krusselldroff - fractal world, (Ektoplazm)

Phobium - Oort Cloud, (Ektoplazm)

Prose Edda,

Folktronica - Kurbeats.(Ektoplazm) - Nothing comes closer to this one.


On the darker front.

VA - Through the afterlife (Ektoplazm) GEM!!

VA - Connundrum Concoction


Pauleye posted a biiiig list of ambient/downtempo albums in the Psytrance in its entirety thread. You might be interested in checking that out.


Edit: I completely forgot this

Hinkstep - out inner space.

Koan - way of one

Well Ultimae has generally become a little bit cheesy for me, still good music though.


Voices from the Lake - Voices from the Lake



This is an absolute masterpiece




Neel - Phobos

Found this band as I was looking for artists similar to Carbon Based Lifeforms -- they are in fact not that similar, but the music is quite awesome:



StrangeZero - Etherhead


Be aware though, they don't only make ambient.



StrangeZero - The Herb Garden


But who checks them out further will stumble upon quite interesting visual / music combinations...

Hi, and sorry about the sudden intro-less delurk, but I thought I'd suggest the now sadly defunct project Emeralds in this thread, as I have not seen it discussed a lot on this site.


A lot of what they put out fits OP's description pretty well in my opinion. They have some Krautrock/Berlin School influences, so you might get a bit of spaced-out guitar in some tracks, but it is mostly electronic and quite psychedelic.


I would suggest starting with Does It Look Like I'm Here?


Two fairly representative tracks:
