So there this very special vibe that I find on certain progressive records released around 2000-2002. Particularly, the whole 'Lewd' album by Beat Bizarre, 'Encoded/Decoded' by Tegma, some of the early Son Kite tracks. It's somewhat minimal sound, where elements have a lot of space to breathe. No big synth lines, arpeggiated leads, gated pads, or too many breaks. Just awesome atmosphere that's built up by groovy percussion, tasteful use of reverb/delay, and smaller synth elements that have room to wander in the stereo field.

Example:







Are there any other albums from that era that sound like this? Anybody making this kind of music right now? I'm not talking about modern Zenon-esque kind of sound, which I absolutely love, but which is often much darker and/or not as minimal as this.

Deep and hypnotic is the name of the game.           https://soundcloud.com/dead-end-dance

This was a cool one from that time

Magnetrixx - Trittschall

Nice cd.

If you can find Antix tracks from that period as well they are nice (Before they went tech/housey)

Yes, the first Antix record (Lull) is really nice, but it's not quite as minimal as this stuff and the typical prog synth sounds have more prominence. Still a really great record.

Magnetrixx, completely forgot about those guys and never heard that particular album. I'll need to track that down. Thanks.           https://soundcloud.com/dead-end-dance

Just gotta say Beat Bizarre - "Lewd" is IMO the best of the early prog style.

IF you enjoy this I'd suggest hunting down a copy of Intact Instinct – "Supply From Below" http://www.discogs.com/Intact-Instinct-Supply-From-Below/release/60766

I think this is just what I'm looking for as well.
This stuff really feels like 'Progressive'.
Let's start a revival of this music!

A bit newer and imo somewhat a bridge between the old and new stuff, but definetely great is Sun Control Species - Scienza Nuova.

Totally, man!

I like pretty much everything mentioned here so far, but Magnetrixx - Trittschall is the only album mentioned so far of the very specific thing I'm talking about. Had a chance to check out some of those tracks, and they nail the atmosphere and the minimalism, though the straight off-beat oompa-oompa bassline in most of the tracks gets a little annoying after a while.

I also remembered another album that's along the same lines: Genetic Spin - On/Off.           https://soundcloud.com/dead-end-dance

A lot of the Flying Rhino catalogue went deep into that style later on.

Also Lunaspice album was really good http://www.psyshop.com/shop/CDs/sbr/sbr1cd006.html           Revisiting the past.

great. lots of albums and compilation i didn't know about for me to checkout out. also, really interesting to read people's thoughts on the subject 8 years ago. was it really that big around that time for people to get so sick of it? i wasn't part of this scene back then, so i have no idea.

also, do you think it's somehow easier to make? sure, you don't need to try to juggle a million things happening and all the automation in busier kind of music. but i think it's extremely difficult to find that perfect balance between interesting minimalism and just plain boring music. to get the most out of few elements, instead of keep piling new things on. for me, a lot of those records completely hypnotize me with keeping things mostly steady on one hand, and then providing just enough subtle variations (hi-hat flourishes, reverb tail that slowly moves in the stereo field, etc) to keep other parts of my brain active and engaged.

@Gizmo77, never heard of those before. i'll check them out, thanks.

@OzMike, oh, yeah, that's a great album. thanks for reminding me about it.           https://soundcloud.com/dead-end-dance
