Aphex Twin

The ongoing project of British electronic musician Richard D. James as the Aphex Twin, this vision of "ambient," experimental music proves to be complex, yet beautiful. While using the occasional dance beat, Aphex Twin also uses ethereal sounds and hums to make a full soundscape.

The Orb

Sometimes solo, sometimes collaborative efforts of British musician Alex Patterson, The Orb attempts to provide a more commercial version of ambient music, creating songs ranging from jazz-based to dance.
