It’s been a while that I have been thinking of doing a special edition dedicated to Chill Out music, after all, it’s one of the main objectives of this site / blog, to specialize on Chill Out music. So, here are several listening suggestions, from the classics to some less well known projects, I didn’t organize them in any particular order. I hope it gives you a starting point for further exploring the world of Chill Out.[youtube IJWlBfo5Oj0 500 312]

About this series:
One of the ideas I have for this blog is to start periodic post series about a few interesting topics. Like one post a week or a month, about the same topic but always bringing you new (or classic but little known) musical discoveries.
This series that I gave the name “The Alternative Music Lounge” is about presenting you bands and projects that I like a lot or respect much because of the quality of their music although they haven’t made it into the so called “main stream” and therefore probably will remain unknown for many people.
Whatever might be the reasons for this (sometimes their creations are just too good, too unique, lacking any “commercial characteristics”, othertimes it’s just another case of being disregarded by the music industry, we all know what’s usual to happen…), I think the’re more people out there who might like their music but just didn’t have a chance to discover it yet, so I hope these publications of mine might be helpful.
By the way, if you’re a musician and think I might like your music and would like to propose your creations for being featured in a post of this series, you’re welcome to comment this post or any other future post of this series, stating your project’s name, a link to where I can listen to some tracks and a way to contact you.
I promise to try and listen to everyone’s tracks and respond, even if I happen to not accept the proposal.

Confesso a minha quase total ignorância relativamente a este género de música, mas a verdade é que, após ouvir as tuas sugestões, gostei muito.
Há umas que se gosta mais do que outras, claro; no meu caso, confesso que não apreciei assim tanto Air e St. Germain. Mas todas as outras gostei imenso, pois fui capaz de ouvi-las abstraindo-me do resto.
Continua a colocar sugestões destas, pois é tudo conhecimento, e não devemos ser “arrogantes” ao ponto de pensar que só o que conhecemos é bom.
Obrigado! 🙂 Sim, hei de meter mais posts assim 🙂
Nice! Massive Attack, Zero7 and Air, definitely my favourite ones.
Ainda bem que gostaste! 🙂 Olha, já cá tens também um link para o teu novo site, acabei de o adicionar na secção “Friends and Associates” e também em “Music Related”… já era para ter adicionado antes, mas depois esqueci-me… parabéns pelo site, já agora 🙂
