I´m new here, so this is my first post I wanted to use this forum as a help to find new great music. I´m relatively new to the genre, but I´ve really fallen in love with a lot of droney ambient music. Artists like Stars of the lid, Kyle Bobby Dunn, Saito Koji, Pausal, Chihei Hatakeyama etc. I was hoping you guys could recommend me some similar artists and introduce me to more of this wonderful genre. You know, that droning, blissful music that really takes you someplace else!
The Swedish duo 'Carbon Based Lifeforms' is one of my favourite ambient/drone groups to date. They use very thickly laced pads with immersive layered electronic and organic sounds. Their early album 'Hydroponic Garden' is a good place to start. Also the first track 'Arecibo' on their 2011 album 'Twentythree' is probably the most blissfully relaxing tune of them all.
Svarte Greiner, Yellow Swans, Ktl, Belong, Growing, Brian Eno, Sun O))), and check out Cryo Chamber. But nobody really knows where all the good dark ambient artists are hiding. One must keep one's ears open.
Brian Eno and Belong especially make some uplifting ambiance, so if you're all alone and you don't want nightmare, there's some options.
