Below, we take a closer look at 30 essential tracks that have shaped dance music from '88 onwards. It was so huge that the song, which sampled Peter Cook and Dudley Moore and was recorded over the course of just two days, only took a single day to sell out its initial run of copies. There were a few records that really defined that 88 to 90 period and they were really hard to get hold of and I remember just craving those records so much that when I finally got hold of them, I wore them out. It transformed dance music from something found in club basements to a genre that could move an entire nation. Once that happened, we had a mainstream hit. Fusing jazz, downtempo house music, some ambient bird sounds and the unmistakable kick of the Roland drum machine, Pacific State, an ode to things far more exotic and tropical, would set a benchmark for what would become known as Balearic. Produced by the Leeds duo Gez Varley and the late Mark Bell, LFO is four-minutes of mind-dizzying electronica that still sounds like the future to this day, reworking the sci-fi sound of early-Detroit techno for the UK dance community. Regardless, this euphoria-drenched number can still bring a nostalgic tear to the eye of any old school raver to this very day. Who it influenced: Papua New Guinea set a precedent for what would soundtrack the 90s, from the blissful pop of Moby to the experimental electronica of Autechre. During their time in Belfast, Orbital witnessed how dance music was helping to bridge the divide.

Chill-out shortened as chill ; also typeset as chillout or chill out is a loosely defined form of popular music characterized by slow tempos and relaxed moods. Some of the genres associated with "chill" include downtempo , classical , dance , jazz , hip hop , world , pop , lounge , and ambient. The term "chill-out music" — originally conflated with " ambient house " — came from an area called "The White Room" at the Heaven nightclub in London in There, DJs played ambient mixes from sources such as Brian Eno and Pink Floyd to allow dancers a place to "chill out" from the faster-paced music of the main dance floor. Ambient house became widely popular over the next decade before it declined due to market saturation. The popularity of chill-out subsequently expanded to dedicated satellite radio channels, outdoor festivals, and thousands of compilation albums. As on-demand music streaming services grew in the s, a form of downtempo tagged as "lo-fi hip hop" or "chillhop" became popular among YouTube users. There is no exact definition of chill-out music. The room's purpose was to allow dancers a chance to "chill out" from the more emphatic and fast-tempo music played on the main dance floor. This also coincided with the short-lived fad of ambient house , also known as "New Age house".
Last fall, the students in one of my writing classes alerted me to a wildly popular YouTube channel , run by an organization called Chillhop Music. More than 2. We called up the channel on the classroom computer.
