Ambient Music suggestions

I randomly got into ambient music a bit this week, and I'm looking for some suggestions as to what other ambient artists I should listen to. Here are some of the ones I like now, though really they may not be considered ambient.

Bluetech
Evan Marc
Boards of Canada
and really thats all I know... I mean, I've heard a lot of ambient tracks, but those are really the only few I got into so far. I suppose I lean more towards IDM styled ambient, space ambient, and psychedelic ambient music but all types I'd like to know about Thanks

Re: Ambient Music suggestions

I think Pete Namlooks FAX label is exactly what you're after dude!

To get you started with the more spacey ambient I reccomend...

Dreamfish
Zenith
2350 Broadway
Ambient Otaku
Electro Harmonix
Ariel Service Area
Psychonavigation
Outland

and a little more upbeat...

Fires of Ork
S.H.A.D.O
Dataside 2
Waiting for Snow
IF
Octopus

I wouldn't bother hunting down the FAX originals as they were only printed in 500-1000 copies each and fetch big money on ebay but the side label Ambient Word have done a few re-releases. You can get FAX on iTunes but eMusic is a good place to get them much cheaper.

The Fax label has some of the best electronic music by the worlds best artists and I'm amazed I missed this stuff back in the day but with such a limited run of each album it's not hard to see why, hurrah for the internet!
:2gunsfiring_v1:

Also chack out FSOL's Lifeorms, UFOrb, Biosphere, KLF Chillout and of course the dude who started it all Brian Eno (Apollo, Ambient 4).

Re: Ambient Music suggestions

Aphex Twin - Selected Ambient Works 1 and 2 (can't believe no one has said this yet, unless I missed it)
Brian Eno - all of his "music for..." stuff (music for airports, music for films, ect), as well as Another Green World.
Tangerine Dream (kind of)

I still think we should dump the Industrial section for ambient/minimal!

Re: Ambient Music suggestions

If you like Evan Marc/Bluetech
you should listen to everything on his labels

Native State Records- (they are moving so no link) but people like Rena Jones

I don't consider it ambient I guess, I mean it is...but my definition of ambient is warm pads and ethereal strings...
