Chillout Music in a Nutshell

Chillout is a genre of music that stands out for being gentle and emotional. It's on the other end of the musical spectrum from Dub-step, Happy Hardcore and Electro, genres that are aggressive and pumpy. Chillout music is conducive to relaxation. After a tough day of work, listening to Chillout music will certainly help one to loosen up, slow down and lose tension. It's a very therapeutic genre of music.

1. Andy Moor feat. Sue McLaren - Trespass (Masoud Chillout Mix)

This lovely song was ranked numero uno in the Chillout category in 2012. Overflowing with a warmth that is both affectionate and filled with hope, it is sure to leave you as spellbound as a curious little child falling in love for the first time!

Masoud has always raised the bar with, not only his original productions, but remixes as well, and this is an apt example of how much in control of his craft he is. It also appears that no singer would have been more apt for this song than Sue McLaren herself!

2. York - Nothing Is Forever (Chill Out Mix)

York's brand of Chillout borders on the ambient, and it is a welcome variant to the Chillout scene that encourages creativity like no other music scene does.

York is closely associated with the Trance scene, and that's probably one of the reasons for the high degree of repetition in his tracks, but that is far from a negative; It actually adds a sense of steely determination to the track; a determination that the juggernaut will roll on, and that nothing in its way is capable of stopping it.

3. A.R.D.I. ft. Justine - Close Your Eyes

Barely out of his teens and Adrian Wójcik is already one of the most talked about Trance producers around! His native style is one of heavy beats and uplifting vibes, but this one is a slow and gentle track you can sleep or wake up to. It's filled with a longing for those precious and rare moments that are best expressed by the lovely voice of a singer as top-quality as Justine.

The comments below videos of this track on Youtube just exemplify how special true chillout moments can be.

4. Headstrong feat. Tiff Lacey - Show Me The Love (Reuben Halsey Chillout Remix)

Tiff Lacey has the uncanny ability to get you addicted to her voice in a matter of seconds, regardless what the music is like.

When the music is actually amazing, like in this song, its an absolute treat for the ears and heart. So deep and so beautiful!

5. ATB - Desperate Religion (Seven24 & Zetandel Chill Mix)

Zetandel is ace when it comes to making Chillout remixes of Trance tracks. In this one he partners Seven24 and makes more special a very special one by ATB.

As you listen, you experience a wave enveloping you in pleasurable addiction. Not particularly as soft as most Chillout tracks, this one is nevertheless one not to miss!

6. Richard Durand ft. Ellie Lawson - Wide Awake (Zetandel Chillout Remix)

When a Trance song is remixed into a Chillout song, the effect is always very emotional, as is the case with this beauty.

Zetandel's remix of Richard Durand's track overflows with feeling right from the word go.

7. Babak Rahnama - Arezou (Chillout Mix)

Probably very unexpected on this list, and not because this is any less wonderful than the other entrants. This is a Persian song by Babak Rahnama, Feel his gentle and soothing voice give you a new perspective on your life!

8. Above and beyond ft. Hannah Thomas - Home

Internalize the lyrics on this one because they are deep. It's a wonder that Hannah Thomas isn't more famous. This song comes from the mid 2000s when Above and Beyond was ruling the Trance circuit. This one is intimate Chillout though.

9. Lounge Worship - I Will Not Fear Fire

This is a song by the Christian chillout band Lounge Worship.

It is totally unmissable, especially for the one facing panic, fear, or a daunting reality that refuses to go away. Follow every word and internalize it, and watch yourself grow in a new sense of courage, and a willingness to be ready to take on anything that may come your way.

Experience it and feel the change.

10. Dulac and Dubois - Till The Break Of Dawn

What a wonderful and touching atmosphere right from the word go! The excellent pads melt away the anger and hurt within you, and melt your heart and fill it with compassion. This track gives a great example of how soft pad synths should be used to great an optimal level of impact.

It just keeps going and going, the journey of bliss and gentle awareness of past experiences, and actually gets very loving towards the end, effects all achieved without any vocals whatsoever throughout the track. The little known Dulac and Dubois show their wonderful quality in this one!
