The sound that embodies Quiet Calm. Not to be confused with New Age or Zen music. Ambient in our context is subtle textures masterfully crafted for introspection. Our Ambient heroes are Field Rotation, Pan & Me and Loscil.

Classical, emotive and melody driven dance music. Championed by artists like Jon Hopkins, Parra for Cuva, Christian Loffler , Kiasmos and Gidge.

Dark Jazz

Music fit for smoke filled noir bars in Paris. Championed by the likes of The Kilimanjaro Darkjazz Ensemble, The Dale Cooper Quartet & the Dictaphones and Bohren und der Club of Gore.

Drone

Deep, dark and heavy. Created by layering complimentary sounds to a satisfying conclusion. Can be as silent as a low hum or as violent as a tornado.

Everything that doesn't fit comfortably into the more heavily represented genres we like at Quiet Calm. You never know what you will find in here.
