Good Ambient Labels

Hello everyone, hope you're having a good day.

So I was just wondering, if people have got any favorite Ambient labels they like to check out every now and then? A little while ago I spent like an entire day searching and browsing and by the end of the day I had a good list of labels, a good number of them offered ALL of its music for free, but now I lost all of their names.

So maybe we could start searching and sharing these labels with each other, maybe we could even come up with a big list to keep, like an encyclopedia of Ambient labels?

Re: Good Ambient Labels

Awesome stuff, that'll keep me busy for the rest of the day lol

But yea the Altered Echo label is pretty good, I like what I'm listening to so far

Thanks for the input guys, also I managed to find one of the labels I used to download stuff from: They're not the best but they offer a lot of free music; its called Ping Things, go to their website then click "label" for the free stuff.

Not the best!? That amateur sound is the one good thing about modern ambient / the internet. If someone wants a larger than life sound, they can listen to Sigur Ros or Coldplay

Re: Good Ambient Labels

LOL I understand what you mean, but the albums I've downloaded from there did not manage to really "amaze" me, if you know what I mean, I'm not saying its bad at all, though, if I thought they were bad I wouldn't have shared their name in the first place.
To be fair, however, I did not download everything, the last thing I downloaded from there was an album called the "Zen of Zero" by a guy called "Reinholt" I remember it lacking any kind of movement, it was basically 60 minutes of a pad + the same stab fading in and out every few seconds. So maybe this is why I got a bad impression, it would have been good Ambient if it was produced like 15 years ago, but not now.

For example, compare this album I just mentioned to a track like: Astropilot - Inverted Worlds to see what I mean.

I know what you mean about that dated sound, but the uninteresting stuff is really good if you're into meditation. I have this belief that there's a time and place for even the most boring shit in the world, it produces a more hypnotic state (which isn't so good for road tripping at night though, unless you have a death wish).

I'm listening to Astropilot now on Spotify, and fuck yeah this is cool! This is my idea of a more maximal sound, but it's not total overkill like those post rock bands. Great recommendation!

Re: Good Ambient Labels

I mostly listen to Ambient while walking through the empty streets of the city at like 2AM, so for me if I'm listening to something too hypnotic I'll instantly drop into a mood of depression. But yeah, different functions mean different styles and different tastes.

You're welcome

Re: Good Ambient Labels

SEM Label (search in Google) is one of the best ambient labels for me.
Alexandre Navarro - Arcane and Letna - Adria are fantastic records.

Eg0cide Productions (can't post links, newbie here)

Great (dark) ambient stuff, though the label leans towards improv stuff, homemade instruments and experimental thingies like that. But it's a good label, worth checking out.
