    Chill out? It's nice to vibe and relax to i think. I'm no master of the genre but it's what i've grown used to hearing listening to chill out. I'd highly recommend listening to a artist named Phaeleh, he makes some nice chillout. also makes chilldubstep and some ambient pieces

    All three are pretty dope, and this is another song a like alot that's pretty chill, and SUBS hard lol

    Chill Out can B many things.........

    WIKI sez: "Chill-out music (sometimes also chillout, chill out, or simply chill) is an umbrella term for several styles of electronic music characterized by their mellow style and mid-tempo beats — "chill" being derived from a slang injunction to "relax."

    Ive been a fan of Chill for alooooong time,and all of it's subgenres. Some is more ambient and some more Jazzy or Trip-Hop oriented.

    Some faves are DJ Shadow,DJ Krush,Nightmares on Wax..More Trip-Hop style.

    Very Laid Back and relaxed...A Chilled Drink...A Puff of that Gooder...A little Chill in the background...and Suddenly...Everything iz gonna Be AAAAAAAlright.

    Here's a vid of my latest Chill track...It has some Trippy Visuals,some shots of my lil Studio,and shots of Me Beating my Maschine...although it soundz Obscene...NaaaaaaaaaH MeeeeeN.

    Genre minefield,over interpretation,endless pigeon holing or just pragmatic content based labelling?..take your pick.I gave up ages ago on many sub genre tags,it's just too pedantic for me,but if your in the know and up with contemporary trends it never hurts to be able to identify music for chill,well that's 5 degrees above chilly. ;)

    Chill out is what bouncers say when you've had one to many drinks and you think you're Napoleon, it can often lead you into a state of unconsciousness and deep meditation depending on how loud you play it back. Teleportation to the hospital is often a side-effect. :))

    My 2 cents... "chill out" used to be the music they played in the disco's bar to let your hears "recover" after a night of loudness-stress.
    So there were no special restrictions, everything that sounded "quiet" but still "interesting enough" was OK.
    That said, I fully quote PlanetJazzBass: "I gave up ages ago on many sub genre tags,it's just too pedantic for me" :-)

    PS: my favourite chill-out record: "Jaffa - Elevator" (is this really chill out or is it elevator music? don't know and don't care too much)

    I never heard of it until I reached looperman...but sounded like most of the mixes there were pretty mellow ever time I upload anything a bit mellow on LM I just call it chill out too...other sites uses terms like Easy Listening, Soft Rock etc...probably helps people find the kind of music they want....or avoid listening to anything they dont...oh well...there are so many sub genres & growning in numbers I quit paying much attention a long time ago,,,,,

    wow, nice

    i'm so guilty of ignorence about genre

    musics like apple jacks - i hear what i like

    i think chill out is more related to the listener than the music, which is not to say that chill out can not be composed and calculated...
    tonic therapy is a finger on that hand
    but is closer to hypnotism

    that's all off the top of my noggin,
    so who knows if it's worth anything

    basically anything thats laid-back,mellow vibed,and downtempo or midtempo could be considered chill.

    But if you really wanna get a good sense of the genre and sub-genres, you could check out the chill channel on XM or even on a internet radio. Alot of really good stuff out there.
