Someone asked me on Twitter recently to pick my three recent favorite ambient albums. I replied that I felt it was far too hard to narrow down. After further prompting, I decided to put together a blog post with a bunch of recommendations, so here it is.
I'm gonna keep this fairly recent, so let's say 2000-now. I'm also not going to list any of my own work or anything on my labels, as I'm sure you probably all know about those anyway!
Neel - Phobos
The Inward Circles – Belated Movements For An Unsanctioned Exhumation August 1st 1984
Aun - Fiat Lux
Variant - Fallinstars / The Setting Sun
Rafael Anton Irisari - The Unintentional Sea
Brock Van Wey - White Clouds Drift On and On
A Winged Victory For The Sullen - A Winged Victory For The Sullen
Grouper - Ruins
Ø – Heijastuva
Pausal - Forms
Slow Walkers - Slow Walkers
36 - Hollow / Lithea
Deaf Center - Live In Moscow / Recount
A few of these could also fall into other categories, such as modern classical and even folk, but on the whole, this is a good representation of the type of stuff I've been playing in the Deep Space Mix Series. Of course, you can also find more music by checking out the track listings for all the Deep Space mixes by clicking on the images on the page, located in the navigation menu on the left. Finally, there's probably a bunch of artists and albums I've left out or forgotten about, so I'll add anything else that comes to mind as and when. Enjoy.
