Hey you all, I noticed nobody started a thread on these genres yet. Laid back, relaxing, electronica influenced music, something to listen to at the after party, when coming down and unwinding.

So post your favourite tracks, albums, groups, artists, music vids and what-nots, so that we may share the calming tunes together. If you don't have a vid link, it's all good.. just post the names.. I'll look into it and sample it.


Let me start with my three current flavours of the week ---


Bush -- Letting the Cables Sleep



Hooverphonic -- Mad About You



Lisa Germano -- From a Shell (ok, this isn't her vid, but just listen to the track)



Alright.. now your turn...

No takers? Ok fine... here's a slightly upbeat track. But it's still chillout.


Deep Dish feat. Anousheh Khalili - Say Hello



Now back down tempo.

Sarah Bettens - All of this Past



Another one from the Underworld soundtrack like above, but not the actual video.. I think Milla Jovovich hasn't released one yet..

Milla - Rocket Collecting




Now back up tempo into trip hop.

Chemical Brothers - Hold Tight London

hey there just saw the thread as i dont come here often but if your after albums try anything by the Thievery Corporation
they made some groundbreaking albums in the 90s



Real Name: Rob Garza & Eric Hilton

Rob Garza and Eric Hilton met at Eighteenth Street Lounge in May 1995. They were introduced by a mutual friend and proceeded to discuss their admiration for the work of Antonio Carlos Jobim and the 60's bossa sound. Weeks later, in a home studio, they began to work on the music that would launch Thievery Corporation. After several early 12" singles, Thievery Corporation released Sounds From the Thievery Hi-Fi on ESL Music. That record is already considered by most to be a classic of the new electronic era.

Try and find a copy of this mixcd : Dj Kicks


Jazzanova are a group to be looked at as well.

And if your into jazzy D+B then checkout LTJ Bukems label Good Looking records


Worth looking for are the Producer, Logical Progression, Points in time and the progression session compilations.


So that should keep you busy for at least 3months
