Favourite ambient records ?
KLF Chill Out always takes me elsewhere.
Isle of Jura reissued Ingleton Falls a couple of years ago. That’s pretty special after hours tackle too.
Basinski - Selva Oscura and Everything by Stars of the Lid
Only thing that is listenable when you are in the worst possible place imaginable.
Greetings from Tankesmedjan Borgen!
Leon Vynehall’s ‘Midnight On Rainbow Rd’.

Chi factory, really great
Raymond Richards - The Lost Art of Wandering LP on ESP Institute - blew me away last year!
Ambient 1 by STRFKR made a good impression late last year.
Sounds great listening to it in a hot bath, just loud enough through a small speaker to blend in with sounds from around the house.
Not sure whether they’d be classed as true ambient but the Warp ‘AI’ albums from around 92/93 by Speedy J (Ginger), B12 (Electro-Soma) and Black Dog (Bytes) were ground breaking for me. And still listen to them now.
Just picked up the latest Richard Norris. Lovely stuff.
All time fave would have to be Music for Airports.
Rasavet records from Moscow are another level : Rassvet Records w/ Burago 20th January 2020 | Listen on NTS
