Ambient/Drone suggestions!

Hi Guys!
Im new here, so this is my first post I wanted to use this forum as a help to find new great music. Im relatively new to the genre, but Ive 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!

Bring on the recommendations guys

Hey jeppepeppe, welcome to the forums. We have a few ambient heads roaming around and there might be some very interesting stuff for you.

make sure you check for any existing thread before you create your own, though, because we already have one open for "Ambient Music suggestions" right here :

We have drone threads, ambient threads, dark ambient threads, and noise-drone threads galore. Just look around a bit and they'll come to you.

Re: Ambient/Drone suggestions!

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.

Re: Ambient/Drone suggestions!

Definitely Steve Roach, he's one of my favorites.
All his long form, 1 track albums are wonderful.

Oophoi, Voice of Eye, Jorge Reyes (more tribal), Biosphere, SoTL, Kyle Bobby Dunn, Grassow, Caul, Etc.
I seem to be the only one who can't stand BVDub. Just sounds so...bland. Color-by-Numbers.

Re: Ambient/Drone suggestions!

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.

Re: Ambient/Drone suggestions!

Simon Slator's "Piano In The Rain".
Soothing rain and uplifting piano turned into drone. The piano tones gradually build to a rich symphony.
