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?
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.
Sure I got a ton for ya. Ready?
Silent Hill Games Soundtrack
The Donkey Kong Country Soundtrack (Sounds stupid I know, but its really relaxing.)
Mark Knopfler (From Dire Straits) 's album "Sailing to Philadelphia"
Opeth's album "Damnation"
Thomas Newman's Soundtracks (IE American Beauty and Road to Perdition)
Chrono Cross Soundtrack
Well those are what i listen to. Patrick O'Hearn and Amethystium are definites though, and can both usually be found in Barnes and Noble.
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 trentemöller , 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.
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"
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
its all about the blues. Nothing beats some old time classic blues.
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!!!
i cant believe LTJ Bukem hasnt been mentioned.. whats wrong with all of you?? - JAG
it's only after you've lost everything, that you're free to do anything..
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.
No mention of Air Moon Safari yet??????
Cocteau Twin treasure pretty cool Liz Fraser
vocalist sang on Massive Attack tear Drop
Plague Monkeys Surface tension
Coco Rosie La Maison de Mon Rêve
Neil Young any early acoustic tracks from Harvest, Goldrush era
Janes Addiction Three Days (ok it gets heavy after 4 mins but the opening of that song......words fail)

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.

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.
