    Some cool chillout music for when you're working...

    Hey guys, I just came across this DJ and he has some awesome soothing remixes that go for over an hour, and for free download - the orange room is damn cool.

    Pretty cool for when you're working and need some background noise =)

    Anyone else got any good music recommendations for work, I get tired listening to the same old on itunes?

    medeaval baebes might be girly, but it gives me a healthy dose of vitamin chill.

    Thanks for posting this man, I usually just put my iPod on shuffle when I draw, but for some cool chill out music. Coldplay and Sia are also very nice, can't forget Brian Eno, Frou Frou.

    Cool stuff!

    Some of my chilled out, down-tempo music:

    Nautilis - "Sketches" and "Are you an Axoltol" CD's. Amazing.

    Tycho - "Past is Prologue" CD http://www.myspace.com/tycho really chill stuff! "The disconnect" is a great song. He's an awesome graphic designer as well.

    IJO - "the Driw Play EP" Free download here: (http://www.sutemos.net/en/player;page,2) go there and click on "IJO- the driw play EP" on the left side of screen to find the link to download. A whole lot more free music is there to d/l as well. Mostly idm type stuff.

    THank you Magic, I will be checking it out! I am in the market for major chill-out music.

    Props to Chaotic for Chrono Cross There is a remix by Scott Peeples called "Another Inspiration" which is a very chill remix of the title theme. And as for Donkey Kong Country, also check out the remixed album on ocremix.org - some of it is less chill than the original but it's more than worth a listen.

    I also want to toss in The Album Leaf - my newest obsession. I 've had them on my playlist for ages but have only just started really getting into them. Can't listen to 8-bit music all the time I suppose

I came a cross an artist who call himself trentem&#246;ller , so great music to listen at , very calm..

I also listen to amon tobin when i draw.. . I can't stand lyrics as I start to think of those to much then.. + amon tobin's music is very relaxing

Thanks for sharing those lists.

Edit'**

Just downloaded the originally suggested music.. Way to go magicman, thanks for sharing !

    Anything from Cirque Du Solei, but primarily the Dralion and Varekai series... oh god I love Varekai.

    other artists and specific songs
    Sigur Ros: "Glosoli"
    Feist: "Honey Honey"
    Sufjan Stevens:" Chicago Acoustic version"
    Bjork:"Anchor Song"
    Sting:" Message in a bottle (acoustic) "+ " King of pain"(acoustic)
    Old school genesis(before it sucked): "Entangled"

    Also anything that resembles the Ashes and Snow soundtrack , like old folklore songs and lullabies from China, Japan and India.(Like Sheila Chandra:"Bhajan"!)
    Wow, that's pretty much my whole current playlist. :p

    Sigor Ros and Yann Tiersen(the music from the film Amelie) are really relazing music.
    Icon's taste is spot on, mad props lady

    hehe, it is relaxing, agreed. but if you're reading or something, the vocals can distract

    Wow, insanity.

    I went on a mad music hunt after reading this thread, thanks Magic Man! This is wonderful!

    I also want to recomend Broken Social Scene (about any song is fine but my favorite is Passport Radio!)

    I discovered the beauty of Album Leaf thanks to Steph, it's great!

    Alex C: awh.. I just love music I can paint to! I'm an avid collector! And heck yea Yann Tiersen! I love the piano acoustic version of the theme...man...download!!!

    This week I've mosty been listening to Stephanie Dosen, ("A Lily for the Spectre") for real gentle chill out music, lyrical and floaty-light.

    I can recommend many of the remixes over at http://blog.restlesssoul.co.uk/ as well as http://deepersoul.blogspot.com/. I usually listen to webradio when working. The channels "Groove Salad" and "Secret Agent" (both from Soma.fm) are great and easily accessed by using winamp or Itunes.

    No pain, no gain.

    K-oS - Atlantis: Hymns for Disco
    Mos Def - True Magic
    Lupe Fiasco - Food & Liquor

    Those are my chill out/hype up sounds there...I might even rock some Corinne Bailey Rae to relax more or something...but those 3 get the most play.

    BIOSPHERE. Download Fluxgate and Bewegende Rythmer from his website or get the albums Substrata or Dropsonde. Its perfect drawing ambient music, increases your creativity by 500 percent.

    You need Buddha-Bar! DjRaven makes some great chill out compilation albums, and if you like Buddha-Bar you should also check out Chill Out in Paris and Siddharta: the Spirit of Buddha-Bar. Some albums are better than others, though. Buddha-Bar VII is great, and IX is pretty good too. VIII isn't worth it. Also, the Ghost in the Shell OST is the most ambient stuff I've ever heard in my life.

    my tips:

    Lackluster: http://www.lackluster.org/index2.php?page=other&p=warez (dont be fooled by the "warez" tag at the end.. its his official site) "starcell u.k." is my fav.. very cool chillout music

    8 bit peoples: http://www.8bitpeoples.com/discography_gfx.php (tip: she- dusk) 8 bit music.. all kinds of stuff

    Skaven (future crew): http://www.futurecrew.org/skaven/ one of the pioneers of tracker music.. the guy is a legend in the demo scene... "samurai ghost" is awesome..

    as for official music you can buy: "bladerunner" by vangelis, about 90&#37; of what aphex twin has put out. tangerine dream and of course pink floyd

    To be honest...I was going to say LTJ Bukem...but it sounded a little too much like Bukkake, so I didn't, for fear of violent back lash.

    oo thanks for that orange room mix, sounds like good stuff; gonna have to check out alot of artists that have been mentioned here as well.

    I'd recommend checking out fat jon(he worked on some of the champloo songs and is also in Five Deez; very chilled out stuff), Dynamic Syncopation (I only have their first album, Dynamism, but it's easily one of my favorites; trying to get ahold of their second...), and for some jazz can't go wrong with good old Herbie Hancock.
