    I never was a big fan of chill-out and ambient music, a genre closely related with psytrance. There are chill-out areas where they are playing this music at a lot of psyparties and lots of psyartists also make downtempo tracks or have sideprojects making only this music. Still, besides the occasional dose of Shpongle the genre never was that interesting to me. But lately I'm getting into it more and more, especially the dubby kind of ambient is getting my attention. There is of course the absolutey fabulous Hallucinogen In Dub album that I know for a very long time. It's full of beautiful melodies and contains remixes from Hallucinogen tracks by Ott. Go here for some samples: http://www.saikosounds.com/english/display_release.asp?id=2985

    Today I've found Ott's own album Blumenkraft in a second hand store and decided to give it another try. I've bought it before but traded it in since I couldn't warm up with it. After listening to it again now I really can't understand why I didn't like it. Not as good as Hallucinogen In Dub but still very nice with lots of ethnical elements and also vocals. Samples here:http://www.saikosounds.com/english/display_release.asp?id=3309

    Another very good album is Mushroom Lab - Good Trip. I wasn't able to buy it yet but the tracks are also very nice. Not all of them are dub, some are more like regular chill-out but especially the first track, Flute Story, is a killer. Unfortunately I can't provide any samples.

    Then I got Dub Trees - Nature Never Betrayed The Heart It Once Loved from a trade. It's a bit more minimal than the other albums mentioned above but there are some very nice songs on it. Especially Cobalt Watefal stands out, what a melody! Here are some samples too:

    Finaly I have to bring one final track to you attention: Vibrasphere - Tierra Azzul. It's on their Archipelago album and the only real dub track (the rest is beautifull progressive trance) but what a beauty it is, using a real guitar. Go here for a sample (the first track it is):

    There is a remix of that track on the Archipelago remix album and it is also very beautiful. The guitar remains but the remixers have added some very nice male vocals. Unfortunately I can't offer you a sample.

    I don't know why I'm opening up to that style more and more. Maybe the fact that I've been smoking weed a bit more than before has helped it a bit. Dub is just sounding awesome when stoned.

    Do you know any dub tracks? They don't have to come from the psychedelic and ambient site, also regular dub is fine. And what ambient/chill-out artists or tracks do you know and like (or dislike)?

    I've discovered an absolutely fantastic dub artist I just have to present you: Kukan Dub Lagan (don't even ask me about how you pronounce that name, the guy himself is from Israel btw). I've heard on of his tracks on a comp I've downloaded, Stop The Wars it is called, and I fell in love immediately. It's not the usual dub thing but he uses a lot of very spacey and happy melodies. This track made me order his two available CDs, only the new one Step Ina Rasta Step has arrived so far but I can allready say it's my favourite dub album right now.
