I had so much fun doing the white 80's pop post yesterday that I have decided that I will make one of the chill out music that I love.Chill out/ambient music is a genre that not too many people are into but let me assure you that once you get in you are hooked for life.I have several gigs on my MP 3 player.Anyway here goes....
Chicane is a pseudonym used by UK-based electronic musician, DJ and record producer Nick Bracegirdle while Clannad is a famous Irish band whose music is a mixture of folk music, new age, and Celtic. Enya is a famous former member. The band won a Grammy Award in 1999 for Best New Age Album.
No chillout collection is complete without a song by Enigma!Enigma are the husband and wife team of Michael Cretu and his wife Sandra Cretu.
This also another song anyone who isn't a chillout fan should be able to identify with.Deep Forest is a musical group comprising of two French musicians, Eric Mouquet and Michel Sanchez. They compose world music, mixing ethnic with electronic sounds and they were nominated for a Grammy Award in 1993 for best world album, and in 1996 they won the award for the album, Boheme.
Thou shalt not have a chillout post without Moby!Moby is an American electronic musician. Moby's real name is Richard Melville Hall (born September 11, 1965 in Harlem, New York City) - he takes his performing name from his relative Herman Melville, author of Moby Dick.This is one of my favourite songs from the first Moby cd I ever owned.
Sarah Mchlachlan is one of my number one musicians!Life isn't the same without her in my music collection.I put in this video for Kenyanmusings, I think after all that blog drama and toothache ya need something nice!
Still Sarah Mchlachlan but 15 years later!I love this song and this video as it has a lesson.Seeing the clip of Kibera made me remember how far we have to go and how much there is to do.Kudos to Shiroh for making an effort!
Delerium feat Sarah Mchlachlan - Silence. I bet you now know I am a big fan of this Canadian Chic's work.This is also another song that is timeless for me!
Can't do chillout and forget Enya can we!
So that's a little something for you to relax to.I may toss out some audio samples soon for all of you to listen to if I can get time to do so!
