Default The Official Ambient Thread

Let's bore those who hate Ambient music with tracks that help us fall asleep The only proviso is that it has to be Electronic.


Hypnotic and yet still full of texture.

Just fast forward to 5 mins 40 for one of the finest chillout tracks ever.

This is how you remix a track That tempo change just before five minutes is sublime.

Love the Jazzy vibe from this once it gets going.

My first encounter with ambient music was when I was maybe 14-15 years old. I got into ambient since my art teacher who I admired alot plays in a quite legendary Finnish ambient band called Nemesis.
The guy had a huge influence on the way I think about art and music. Saw him actually last summer and talked with him. He now also plays keyboards in a instrumental prog rock band called Moonwagon.

Here's a song I managed to find from youtube
This band is a pioneer in Finnish ambient/electronic/synth music. They have been doing their stuff since 80's

YouTube - CLUBROOT - ORBITING

Clubroot is an amazingly talented producer in 2-step, Ambient and Experimental genre. He has two albums packed full with gems which you could easily fall asleep to.

YouTube - Burial - Archangel

"Archangel" is Burial at the height of his powers. A Dubstep and abstract artist who has two critically acclaimed albums to his name already.

YouTube - Aphex Twin - Xtal

Aphex Twin needs no introduction. One of the defining electronic figures for years. Some of his ambient work is unbelievably stunning and chilling whilst creating very intense and sometimes creepy atmospheres at the same time. Unique and ultimately timeless.


Apologies if my links are more Dubstep and not what you were looking for in this thread. However, they are deserving of being referred to as Ambient.

Have you guys heard of Brian McBride? Really good, he takes a lot of time developing his atmospheres. I have his When Detail Lost It's Freedom, and I throw it on any time im in a pensive sort of mood.
