Love the opening of this song...
Chillwave sounds like somebody just put the synthpop and shoegaze I listened to as a kid in the 80's and early 90's in a blender. I do like the bedroom quality engineering on a lot of these though. Reminds me of trading cassette tapes of music you made in your garage when you were younger.
My selection is from one of the guys you'd frequently hear at any chillout room at a rave in the mid-nineties, though this piece is off his 2006 album Jeux Dangereux. Most of Pete Namlook's mid-nineties stuff is super hard to find, very minimal and very long, so I'll spare you that. This one even has vocals, a rarity for Pete.
WTF is Chillwave? (can't watch youtube, here at work).
Where does IDM fit into all this?
Put me down for a random track from Autechre's Incunabula. Mmmmm massages my brain, and nice and organic sounding unlike their later LP and EPs where they sound like they were transformed into robots.
chillwave is synthpop but....it's chill
song for today:
Doctor Rockit - Cafe de Flore
classy as fuk
Never would've thought I'd meet another Autechre fan here on SF.
One of the calmer Chemical Brothers tracks that I absolutely love:
I created a "david holmes" station on pandora.....lots of good chill stuff on there....worth giving it a try....
Similarly, I created a Portishead one and often get some interesting shit.
I thought this stuff hasn't been cool since 2009
got some jaidene veda for today
Autechre is DA SHITTTTTTT Autchre, Neotropic, Boards of Canada, I like it all except, strangely enough, Aphex Twin.
one of the very first songs that got me into this genre:
Zero 7 - Destiny
Love BoC. Pity they haven't put out anything since Campfire. I'm not big on Aphex either... atleast his latter stuff. Except I do *love* Selected Ambient Works 85-92, one of my all time favorites.
Going back to a classic. Gained popularity again in 90's cause of Trainspotting (brilliant movie).
Some Tennishero for today
Gspliff - Not Afraid
