Damn, I love chill music and there are many types of it but here is the ones that I adore: Portico Quartet - Steepless http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XWOXXjqRz9Y Blockhead - Triptych pt. 1 http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zWbaG6zhIWw Four Tet - As Serious As Your Life http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=E3qnzLHVdo4 Baths - Animals http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dHvWURUzj3Q

All of Nujabes is great and I can´t choose. Also listen to Recondite´s new album, it´s great. If you need more I can name more artists.

Edit: I´m just going to say a couple more artist that I love. Apollo Brown, Bonobo, Prefuse 73, Pretty Lights (especially the first album), RJD2, Robot Science, Shigeto, Shlohmo.

If you like Nujabes and Ninja Tune I also suggest checking out Shigeto Edit: More less well-known chill music producers (who all happen to be Asian):

Bahwee Beat Culture (A bit of nepotism as I went to primary school with him) Giraffage

Giraffage is great, my roommate actually knows him because they both are really frequent users in a small forum. My roommate first introduced him to me by the name of Robot Science. You might like it, it´s definitely not as good as Giraffage though.

Nice, I found out about and became a fan when he was on tour with XXYYXX, especially after this collab. Slow Magic opened for them.

Man, I love Shigeto´s Full Circle album. He just uses so many great samples and beats. You should listen to some Knxwledge too, here´s my favorite https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8Bw84JJCelg

I love Knxwledge. He made a surprise appearance at Afropunk in Brooklyn and I ate it up.

Damn, that sounds dope as hell. I just fell in love with Bibimbap, the song is in a way really out of tune, but works out perfectly.

All great. If you like Portico Quartet, I suggest also checking out Squarepusher's album Hard Normal Daddy. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z6FY50SJcKg

I´ll definitely check it out cause I´ve been playing Portico´s new album non stop.

Oh man, I love that Baths song!

Although I must point out, it's called Aminals (like a little kid is saying it).

kitinnitik  ·  2212 days ago  ·  link  ·  

Ha I have it in my ipod as Animals and never thought about it thanks!

Nujabes is fantastic, love a bit of Four Tet and Baths too. Thinking of Baths have you heard this https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=USBzoFo5W8g it's so ridiculously chilled!

Haven't heard of the others I'll check them out tomorrow as it's late (or early) where I am so I'm off to bed.
