"The ultimate 'CHILL OUT' compilation of the late '90s is here! It is related to the CD/LP of the same name by the legendary popgroup KLF. Not only does the 1990-release Chill Out by KLF hold as a milestone for ambient music, but it also played a major role in the spreading of the ambient style. The CD-project initiated by Sabotage Communications found a new niche in the definition of 'Chill Out. An electronic vocabulary was built into the concept of 'ambient' in a way, that the form, content and context (soundscapes, slow motion, resting place,...) counteract with the structure, which was formerly escaping the listeners attention but now doesn't let the audience rest. To expand the musical dimension and frame not only artists from Austria, but Japan, Canada, Netherlands and Germany, which are well known for their vicious and groundbreaking work in their musical genre, were invited to participate in this project. Even the cover of the CD plays an essential role. Corresponding to the title the original cover of the KLF Chill Out CD shows a meadow with chilling sheep. This time a rack of wolves rests on the lawn." Featuring tracks from Panacea, Airlock (from the amazingly obscure Drive-In label out of Germany!), I-f, Aube, Fennesz, Farmers Manual, Bannlust, Ryoji Ikeda, Pomassl, Alois Huber, DJ Pure, David Reeves & EPY.
