    These are a few choice artists/albums/tracks from the triphop/downtempo realm which I think are note worthy for chillin' out to. Judging from the overall music charts of this group some of these will be stable favourites, but I certainly could not post on a discussion thread as such without mentioning them. If your just starting out, these are certainly worth investigating.

    Air's album "Moon Safari" is what got me into this kind of music. Laid back, jazzy and cool; the use of Moog synthesizers certainly creates a spaced-out sound, taking you on a journey, an effect much like what Pink Floyd did in the 1970's with their album "Dark Side of The Moon". The whole album is very solid (except the track "You Make It Easy". I could never get into that one).

    Taking a small leaf from Air's book, Zero 7 's albums "Simple Things" & "When It Falls" are certainly worth a listen. Although I must stress that Zero 7 do have a similar sound to Air, there is certainly is a strong distinction between the albums and artists. In comparison, for me, Air does tip the scales of "chill". I find that towards the end of Zero 7's "Polaris", the music almost takes on a physical form.

    Bitter:Sweet's album "The Mating Game" has a more "lounge and cocktail" sound but needless to say the track "Moody" ranks high on the chill level for me. I often think of Gershwin when I hear this one.

    Another favourite of mine is Mono's album "Formica Blues". For me, the album blends the nostalgic sounds of the 1960's with trip-hop quite nicely. Incidentally, the track "High Life" is VERY reminiscent of Petula Clark's 1960's hit "Downtown".

    Other artists that are worth checking out are Tosca, Massive Attack, Portishead, Thievery Corporation and Smoke City.

    As a final note, the track "Come To Nothing" by Australia's Car Stereo Wars is possibly a little bit more obscure than anything already mentioned. This song has a sound that kind of reminds me of Nellee Hooper's Edit of the Sneaker Pimps song "Six Underground". The Car Stereo Wars chillin' track "Come To Nothing" can be listened to at:

  • Modo - Small Hours
