1. Solar Fields - Reflective Frequencies (Album) [ INRE004 ] 2001

2. H.U.V.A. Network - Distances (Album) [ INRE012 ] 2004

3. Carbon Based Lifeforms - Hydroponic Garden (Album) [ INRE009 ] 2003

 

These three are really iconic albums for me... They defined the early Ultimae sound: deep, exotic & alien soundscapes  which was, at the time, totally different than anything you could find in psychill (you know, the usual eastern-flavored or dub-style chill).

 

Later on, I think I caught myself listening excessively to:

 

4. Circular - Substans (CD, Album, Mixed) [ INRE036 ] 2009

5. Aes Dana - Perimeters (Album) [ INRE045 ] 2011

 

...because of their subdued character, their calm beauty and serene & mysterious atmosphere. Truly mesmerizing albums.

 

And of course special mention goes to:

 

6. Fishimself - Ambrosia (CD, Compilation, Mixed) [ INRE049 ] 2011

 

...simply because I was part of it :P Seriously, Ambrosia was a different beast than the established Ultimae sound, with some real gems in it. I guess my favorite was Max Million's opening track, a real stunner!

A good thing the Ultimae crew gets honoured. Their releases are always top quality with a distinctive sound.

 

 

I'll list '360' by Asura as my ultimate Ultimae album.

It's the combination of chillout atmosphere, heavenly melodies and relaxing beats

 

 

Runners up:

Solar Fields: Origin #1

Aes Dana: Perimeters

Cell - Hanging Masses
Cygna: Opus Ena

Most stuff from Ultimae is top-notch. I'm not too keen on constant 4/4 -the kick drum, not the time signature- in psybient, so I prefer their more chilled, freer releases. Recently Miktek, Asura and the awesome new Circular album. I must admit I've paid less attention to their releases in the last few years due to the hype they've been getting since day one, but every release I revisit or give a listen to is from pleasurable, at the very least, to excellent. Funnily enough I was listening to Enfold 01 when I spotted this topic ;) Great compilation.

Anything by Cell is worthy of listening to. Especially his more energetic psychill found sporadically on older comps.

Hmm - it`s really hard to answer this quation as I am big fan of this label and `ve got almost everything of their discography till 2006 (just without first Asura`s album) and most of these after. At the moment (similar to Gagarin) I listen less ( not regularly) to their music because (for some reasons)  could not buy cds but always pay attention to what they release. :)

It's hard to choose but it is probably in this order

 

Solar Fileds - Leaving Home

Aes Dana - Memory Shell

Cbl - Hydrophonic Garden

Huva Network - Distances

Va - Oxycanta and some parts of Fahrenheit series.

At one moment i really enjoyed Cell live sets from Ketama, Glade festival ect..

 

Must admit that some ultimae cd's waren't in my player for a long time now but I still love listening to this listed albums.

Ultimae are one of those rare labels where I enjoy almost every single thing they release. A few that I've gone back to the most over the last few years:

Solar Fields - Blue Moon Station
HUVA Network - Ephemeris
HUVA Network - Distances

Various - Farenheit Project Part 2

Carbon Based Lifeforms - Hydroponic Garden

 

I also have a feeling that Circular's newest album could join the list.

Tough one, my favourite compilations are "Module 01" & "Module 02", and the albums i listen the most are "Hol Baumann - Human", "Connect.Ohm - 9980", "Sync24 - Confortable Void", "I Awake - The Core" among others, but it's hard to pick a favourite
