Remember it from the 90's, the phrase Chill Out or Die? The chill out rooms of parties past took on the task of lowering your racing heartbeat and pulling you back from the brink; best for that purpose was deep-space chilled ambient, and that may be what most folks think of if they think of ambient at all: that deep-space mode, filled with the sensations of cart-wheeling wing-tip over tail-fin, out into the black reaches of the universe.
But there's also the lush style of ambient, for when chilling is by choice rather than an emergency rescue mission, a form of ambient grooves most likely to be heard in the spa retreat or the candle-decked love nest. With this warmer chill in mind, I've brought you music that's all spacey and drifty one minute, surging rhythm the next. The first track is a 12 min. laid-back rubdown, meant to wring you out, settle you down and get you ready … leaving you there-but-not-there, so your mind can roam unimpeded … just for now, just for an hour or so.
