While this is just a tad bit different, it's still atmospheric down-tempo / chillout. You should like it. The link below is a vid to the whole album, and the whole vid plays as a continuous mix, which is what the album does. If you're in the mood to chill for over an hour, listen to this:

Know very little electronic music, and pretty sure I'm not into trance/house etc, but would like to know if anyone knows of artistes similar to Jean-Michel Jarre: that sort of banks of synthesisers with drum machines, ambient/electronic and a little spacey while still retaining very much a melody in the music. Anything like that out there?

You might like the M83 album Dead Cities, Red Seas & Lost Ghosts. I'm having a hard time finding the tracks I'd like to show you on YouTube, but the album has a warm, sort of vintage synth sound frequently mixed with a somewhat proggy sensibility. I think you might like it.

Thanks Jansz, tracked down a copy and had a listen to the samples. Some I loved, some I hated. The vocal ones in particular did nothing for me, but yes, some of the instrumental stuff was really nice. Not sure I'd go a whole album, but may grab a few tracks for a playlist at some point.

Are their other albums worth checking out? It's pretty much instumental only I'm interested in, a la JMJ, Vangelis, Oldfield, that sort of thing.

Freebase my man! This is exactly what I was looking for! Have they any other albums? And if so, are they all like this? Super cool!

You know what's even better though? Starting the vid here, let it run for a minute or so then go to YT and start it over again, the two playing with one slightly behind. It sounds great!

Again, thank you: I'll be listening to this for a while...

I honestly think you'd be better off checking out the whole album, since the whole thing really has an overall flow—it's one of the things I thought you might like about it since you're a fan of prog. Samples really don't do it justice. Very little of the album actually has vocals, and the few vocals it does have are often voice-as-instrument with no actual lyrics.

The other albums I've heard by them are more poppy. I think you'd probably like them less.

I'm really an indie/alternative fan, particularly bands like Everything Everything, but I adore the Glitch Mob... Has anyone got any recommendations for Electronica with a similar sound? I'm not really a fan of skrillex/knife party and the like....
