April Larson - Hopeless Variations
Beautiful drone-based ambient from an artist previously unknown to me. Excellent abstract cover art too.

Aglaia - Picture Frames
Lovely new drone release with a great span of frequencies (e.g., low guttural murmurs)
https://aliodie.bandcamp.com/album/picture-frames

Alio Die - Time Zone Portal
This is okay: Well above average for ambient music, but average for Stefano. Still worth a listen/buy.

Quiet Calling - V
Outstanding sonic journey, beginning with some attention-grabbing synth work, evolving into nicely textured drone work, and ending with a some glitchy touches.
https://el-culto.bandcamp.com/album/quiet-calling-v-full-length-tracks-complete-mixed-album-included

Jaja - Music for Space Observation
Quiet (very quiet) contemplative drones. First track is amazing.

It appears not much is happening, and yet it is so full of tension and a very particular emotion.

Anthony, this is definately music that makes me feel home: Fluxion, Maurizio still my favorites..

repetive yet sligtly changing loops, hypnotic without being hypnotic, all atmospheres, delays..

I have saved some dj mixes spanning from 1998 to 2007: ambient, dubtechno and sorts :)

Siyanie - Homo Multidimensional + Shining of Unity
Meditative and blissful ambient music from Russia. I found these after poking around some of Richard Gürtler's recommendations, and I'm really glad I did.

riverrun - Lilliput
A long-form drone piece, based mostly on looped guitar. Dark, but not creepy.
