Hearing the tablas in that video has reminded me that Aloke Dutta has suffered a major heart attack. For those who don't know him, he is the greatest tabla player to ever touch the drums and has taught many of todays greatest drummers. He is one of the kindest spirits I have ever had the privilege of meeting. It will be a sad day in the music world when he is gone.

That Deep Forest stuff is really cool. Definitely see the Enigma parallel. I actually really liked a lot of what Pot posted too, although it's not usually my style. Keep the posts coming. This is turning into a nice recommendation thread.
A great group for anyone into the more ambient side of things is The Dead Texan. I have had their CD for a year and a half and I still have to listen to it once a month all the way through. It's one of the guys from Stars of the Lid. Amazing stuff!
Also, here is the video for my favorite song of theirs right now (it has changed 5 or so times already): The Struggle. No YouTube for that one, though.
i know all the pretentious bastards on here are going to give me so much shit for asking such a dumb question, but aphex twin is one of those artists that has been an enigma to me all these years; ive had his selected ambient works vol2 for awhile now, and i honestly love it. but i havent gotten around to checking out any other of his albums. so here's the stupid question of the day, which album(s) do you recommend, and do all of his other albums have straight beats or are they all abstract as the album i have?

Robert Plant would probably be on there somewhere too.
His albums are not all like SAW2. They go from ambient, acid techno to drill and bass and melodic stuff. And there are a lot of more sounds in his albums than those. If you liked the SAW2's ambient sounds but want them more upbeat, try SAW1. If you like melodic sounds, crazy drill beats and prepared piano pieces, try Drukqs. If you want Drukqs but with a more innocent/fun atmosphere or less 'serious,' try the RDJ album. If you like acid sounds and songs made with analogue equipment, detuned synths, try the Analord series. And if you like video games sounds, try Melodies from Mars.
