  1. It's been said before, social media is where the discussion is. I don't have any so I too wish there were more activity here. Any attempt at dialogue from my part has been met with minimal response, always from the usual suspects. I do check out Gordon's lists regularly, but I don't want to keep starting threads where responses can be counted on one hand of a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle, or keep posting on the listening now thread on my own.
  2. There are always releases I find interesting that I'm not aware of - and I'm not even talking about unknown artists. How do you do it? 👍
  3. Had a listen to The Structure of Emotions, very well done. I'm not the biggest fan of droney ambient (though there are some times when it's just what I need) and this style of multidimensional ambient is much more to my liking.
  4. AstroPilot has quite a few ambient albums. Matt Hillier goes back and forth with his multitude of aliases. Eguana releases all kinds of downtempo, psychill and ambient music. There's also Carbon Based Lifeforms' Twentythree and VLA, Bluetech's Dreaming into Being and Liquid Geometries, Germind's Ambient Waves and Bathyscaphe, I.M.D.'s Hertz 01 and 02 EPs, some Jairamji releases I haven't checked out yet, Kyoto's Scapes & Spheres and Squares & Triangles, Lauge's Latitudes, Ovnimoon's alter ego OM and some Rising Galaxy releases I've browsed but didn't grab my attention so I can't remember. I don't know if that counts, but Seb Taylor's Kaya Project have released two Ambient Mixes and KP's last album Body.Mind.Soul. includes an ambient mix, and Hibernation have released Ambient Re-Works 01. Not all of these are particularly new but there you go, that's all I'm aware of. Hope this is some of what you're looking for.
  5. Yeah DP's Blue is great! I wasn't the biggest fan of MS's drone stuff, but I do enjoy his more uptempo albums.
  6. Thanks for the heads up for the Mystical Sun album Salamantis, it's been a while since I heard from him. Sea Biscuit is a very good album too.
  7. Depends what you're looking for. 2008's Back to Earth and their latest, 2017's Last Ship to Paradise, are downtempo and amazing imo. 2000's Crash & Burn! and 2001's In the Nude! are pretty eclectic, with all kinds of weird stuff, some loungy and accessible elements there, with ES's touch of course. 2007's De-Classified is a return to their techno roots with one of my favourite tracks of theirs, Tractor Beam, which is drum'n'bassy btw. Finally, 2016's double Dead Planet is split in half, uptempo and downtempo, and is simultaneously a kind of recap and an experiment. The downtempo side is very weird. YouTube is your friend. It's worth mentioning that SotG was the hardest album to get into for me too, and is still my least favourite.
  8. Since you mentioned it, a very large chunk of Eat Static's work. But you probably already know that. 🙄
  9. Thank you, always useful 🙂
  10. Proxeeus' album is fantastic, just the right balance between light and darkness.
  11. I really enjoy all the installments of Avatar Records' Café... series. Like I said to an online friend, they are my go to proper relaxation series: not too deep, not to clubby, with chilled, unintrusive, soft beats. They've released three so far this year, Café Africa, Café Shanghai and Café Bhutan, all great.
  12. Still here in case you were wondering, still appreciating your work 🙂 Been a bit out of the loop, only occasionally checking downtempo albums, but am getting more into it again. Your lists are always helpful Gordon. Thank you and keep up the good work. I signed up here for some discussions but since that's done on social media now, no such luck here , hence the absence of comments.🙁
  13. The first two tunes on this one are fantastic.
  14. With all this work you've put in I'm starting to doubt it took you less than the weekly updates It might be useful to copy-paste the colour codes each month, or make them somehow readily available without having to search this topic each time.
  15. I think I'm not the only one to be thankful for your work Gordon. I'd missed some releases I'm interested in, but finally became aware of them thanks to this list.
