    I love Air.

    Check out The Whitest Boy Alive, Neon Indian, Washed Out and Toro Y Moi.

    Come on, The XX isn't good reading music, and it barely fits the "electronic" description. It's just shit.

    Anything by Ulrich Schnauss should do the trick here. And Boards of Canada, of course.

    Diogenes Club seems like you`d like it based on the video in your first post

    Air - 10,000hz leged is pretty bad ass. Also, as others have mentioned, most Thievery Corp. stuff but also DJ shadows "ulitmate collection" is awesome and flows so well from track to track. Crystal method also has some good stuff.

    Washed Out - Feel It All Around

    in the same vein as neon indian, but even more laid back.

    edit: didn't notice they were already recommended. Darkel is pretty similar (1/2 of Air), but more poppy. you might have heard of Midnight Juggernauts. they just released a new album, very similar to Air and David Bowie. And if you don't have them already, Air's Pocket Symphony and Talkie Walkie.

    Some good stuff have been already mentioned: Thievery Corp Kruder & Dorfmeister (The K&D is perhaps THE Chillout album for me, but dj kicks is very good too) Boards of Canada (one of my favourites, but it's quite an acquired taste) Bent Tosca I'll add: German/Austrian Nu Jazz scene: Trüby Trio, dzihan & Kamien (especially the live album, mind blowing), Jazzanova, De-Phazz, Micatone, Minus 8... Afterlife (Simplicity 2000) for CafÃ[​IMG] del Mar, Ibiza vibes Kyoto Jazz Massive for an introduction to broken beat Shazz (In the Night) great french deep house Fila Brazillia (Jump Leads is a good start) Nitin Sawhney & Talving Singh RJD2 for abstract hip-hop Beanfield Lamb (What Sound) Last.fm is a good way to get pertinent recommendations based on what you already like. Here's my profile. http://www.last.fm/user/jfelicien I'm mostly into chillout and early 90s Hip-Hop

    Can't believe no one's mentioned Massive Attack yet. I have my own category for music like this and call it "Hot Chill" on my playlists. Angel has to be one of the chillest songs ever done.

    Did I mention Code Indigo yet? Check out CHILL to start off with.

    Eastern Sun is another band to check out.

    I have, I think, the entire BOC collection. It is an aquired sound but can work. Some really great stuff.

    Try Eastern Duk Tactik, Bombay Dub Orchestra, and Naya.

    Pio do you listen to Tricky? If you're a big Portishead/Massive Attack fan you'd probably really dig it.

    Natan, I have some of his stuff. What I find is that the music is good but his voice can't carry things, at least to my ears. The guy is a great talent, just not a great vocalist IMO.

    Looking into that Hammock CD but haven't pulled the trigger on it yet.

    Tried massive attack but found it sooooooooo boring. The only song that I could really get into was "Karma Coma."

    Four Tet.

    Generally I don't think there has been much exciting stuff going on in electronic for a while, maybe some of the Sigur Ros stuff, but I find it too sleep inspiring.
