Chilled Electronica
I am just wondering if people could help share more music similar to the following, I am a relative noob in this genre at the moment but I am loving some of the stuff I am finding, really inspiring and full of emotion. I guess its kind of like that ambient electronica type music, I dont even know the best way to describe it . Im checking out albums like Aphex Twins' selected Ambient works etc atm but looking for similar artists/songs .

Music like:

Aphex Twin



Burial

Boards of Canada

One of my fave chill Aphex tracks is Flim, so nice

Media Player
Aphex Twin - Flim - YouTube

If you haven't already I'd recommend getting the entire BoC catalog, they're all so good, and so different

The 3 that most people would have
- The Campfire Headphase
- Geogaddi
- Music Has the Right to Children

And than Twoism which is older is awesome.. and there's a bunch of really good EPs

This one's off Twoism really quirky but fuckin cool.. pun!

Good music your exploring, and some good recomendations, thanks patrickbateman for the Yagya clip, never heard of him/her/them.

If you want to go into more challanging territories check out the Touch label, particularly Fennesz, Biosphere, Lawerance English, William Basinski.

Some other artists worth exploring, albiet less mainstream "chilled" is Pan American, Motion Sickness of Time Travel, Zoviet France, early autchere, Grouper, the Kranky label, and I could go on. Amazing music, enjoy discovering these sounds!!

I don't go to be in the VIP area.. I don't need big breaks, a big song with a buildup and lights and smoke.. all you need is a kickdrum and a good bassline. You don't need any of that other shit. Na, I'm not going for none of those reasons.. I'm just going for the music.
