I have to say that Man With No Ego is one of the few 'modern' artists that has captured me like the old. Seems to have a big following as well, with Web of Life and Blinkers removed clocking up nearly 5 millions views together, which in this day and age is a huge success and very impressive. I concur that there is something special about his music, even if I cant put my finger on why.
Still feel that the scene is missing some organic/analogue sounding stuff, which puts the focus on simplicity and space.

loving the Hibernation reworks, Seb seems to be on an ambient kick with Kaya Project - Ambient Mixes 2 also recently released. agreed that it's more dynamic than most ambient.
always glad to see new music from Ishq, although I'm most excited about the upcoming Summerland imprint releases that will have a more melodic, dreamy Ishq style.

Can UCP do no wrong? Granted, his style doesn't change much, but his works are always well crafted and take me places.
Will check out Eguana, Miktek and Sync24 and possibly Flucturion 2.0, Govinda and the suggested compilation.
Thanks for your continued work Gordon

I'll second Sea Biscuit, thanks for the reminder Salamantis
Here's a few more:
Astralasia - Axis Mundi
Banco De Gaia, just about everything
O-Head - Silent Universe (a bit on the ambient side)
Future Loop Foundation - Time & Bass (atmospheric d'n'b)
Jake Stephenson's projects; Alien Mutation, Optica/Optic Eye, Dr Psychedelic, Ganja Beats (very dubby those two), plus Crystal Moon with Matt Hillier
Gregory T. Kyryluk's Alpha Wave Movement (Berlin School) and Open Canvas - Nomadic Impressions. The latter is highly recommended.
Mystical Sun - Primordial Atmospheres (and everything else )
Orbital - Snivilisation and In Sides (that one is a masterpiece)
Patchwork - self-titled https://www.discogs.com/Patchwork-Patchwork/master/1124745
Sounds from the Ground (psydub)
System 7 - Power of Seven
The Future Sound of London - Dead Cities
The Orb - Orbus Terrarum
And a bit of a cheat, as this is a 2000 compilation of tracks from '87 to 2000: Nodens Ictus - Spacelines
Hope you find something you enjoy among the lot.

The Mystery of the Yeti, if you aren't familiar. https://www.discogs.com/Mystery-Of-The-Yeti-The-Mystery-Of-The-Yeti/master/37152 Part 2 from '99 is a compilation https://www.discogs.com/Various-The-Mystery-Of-The-Yeti-Part-2/release/82535
And on the topic of compilations, Global Psychedelic Chillout: https://www.discogs.com/label/592449-Global-Psychedelic-Chill-Out, although that's 2000-2003. In the 90s the same label released some double CDs, one trance, one downtempo, under the Global Psychedelic Trance name. Also the Ambient Meditations series on Return to the Source are pretty good, especially the first two installments. https://www.discogs.com/label/576416-Ambient-Meditations Finally, the Feed Your Head series on Planet Dog.
Sorry for any redundant information.

I liked the Blue Lunar Monkey album and Zymosis EP, but the release I enjoy the most is Sundial Aeon's album. Some of their albums in the past have left me cold while others are masterpieces in my book. I can't quite explain what it is that makes them one or the other, as they're not vastly different. This one is one of their best imo.

Hard question and you're absolutely right! There are so many artists and labels releasing new music that I actually find it difficult to explore new music nowadays
There are few labels I'll try to follow and check their new releases but I'm sure that there's so much new music and talented artists that you won't ever notice because the mass is so huge...
And back to the original question... Can't really name the best artist but labels like Melusine, Mystic Sound, Mindspring and Synphaera have released some pretty good chill lately!

Yeah the Kick Bong album sounded much better than a lot of his previous work just on the cursory listen I gave it. The last album of his that I was really able to get into was Flower Power way back in â€˜08, Iâ€™m sure thereâ€™s been some good stuff since then but I havenâ€™t given it much of a chance yet.
definitely enjoyed the Slackbaba EP, and Iâ€™m a big fan of MantisMashâ€™s sound. Humandala was pretty good too.
still need to give UCP a proper listen, but since you like it Iâ€™ll feature it in the 2018 releases table.
