I've recently discovered that i quite like ambient style music, also can be known as chill out music, or trippy music. i first discovered the style as well as some good songs on GTA 4. anyway perhaps you guys know of some really good songs or artists. here's some i have found to be good:

The oh of pleasure-ray lynch

Oxygen IV- Jean Michael Jarre

Delphium- Aphex Twin

The things I tell you- Biosphere

Antennaria- Biosphere

Remote viewing- Tangerine dream

5:23-Global Communication

9:25-Global communication

A Huge Ever Growing Pulsating Brain That Rules From the Centre of the Ultraworld- The Orb (this is an amazing track BTW)

Into the fourth dimension- The orb

Claude Speed.

I absolutely love ambient.

If you can get hold of it, have a listen to some of Steve Roach and William Basinski. Roach has an extensive catalogue, but if you can find Early Man (and the bonus tracks), give it a listen. Life-changing ambient, he's a true pioneer. Basinski released something called The Disintegration Loops, which is almost as interesting to read about as it is to listen to.

If you want something a little darker, do try Death Cube K, which is as atmospheric as anything you could ever find. All good.

I love Aphex Twin. Not all of his work, though, I like the more chilling, melodic side of his music. So yeah, ambient, I think. Like this:

It's really amazing how one track can so affect your mood and everything..

I love Aphex Twin, both styles of his music do it for me. Recently I've been hammering Girl/Boy Song and #4 from the RDJ album, but I can appreciate his Selected Ambient volumes too.

The entire tracklist for the The Journey radiostation is just brilliant. Maiden Voyage became of my all time favorite songs after i heard it on GTA

I hope there is a similar station in GTA5
