Overview

Despite the rather unfortunate title, Ultra Chilled, Vol. 1 assembles some of the most established names in down-tempo electronica and trip-hop, mixing them with some relative unknowns. The flow from Dido to Gorillaz to St. Germain to Morcheeba is deceptively smooth, as is what will be most listeners' introductions to acts like Zero 7 and Goldfrapp, with each song seamlessly blending into one another. The sequencing on the two-disc set is a little predictable, with many of the better-known artists grouped near the front of each disc, but little glimmers of familiarity (like Alex Gopher's "The Child" on disc two or the impeccable inclusion of Badly Drawn Boy's "The Shining" on the first disc) near the ends frame the collection nicely. What could be considered dusty artifacts in the world of electronic music (Massive Attack's 1991 song "Hymn of the Big Wheel" and Moby's 1992 "Go") sound fresh in this setting, mixed expertly by David Waxman. If just listening to an album could make you instantly cooler, this could very well be it.

Very relaxing and great for reading or accompanying surfing on the computer. Massive Attack, Zero 7 are familiar but many other great tunes.

This cd is hot! Ultra Chilled features a wide range of artists- huge acts like Dido and Gorillaz, as well as artists you might recognize only if you're a reader of imported DJ magazines- names like Bent, Zero 7, Royskopp, Goldfrapp, and Dusted. This is definitely a CD that you can listen to from beginning to end. The order of the tracks is perfect- it takes you on a journey. Whether you're listening to it getting ready for work, coming home from work, in your car, or after a long night of partying- Ultra Chilled fits the mood for many occasions. If you're a music expert or a beginner wanting to explore new artists and new music- Ultra chilled appeals to everyone. Hands down, THE definitive mix of cool downtempo music.
