Recommend some dreamy electronic music (ideally with vocals)

Been binging on Nicolas Jaar/Darkside and dug out that Vondelpark record from a few years back. Any strong recommendations for the dreamier/spacier side of dance/electronic/ambient etc…

Definitely try the Kiasmos album. It sounds exactly how you’d expect an ambient house record jointly made by Olafur Arnalds to sound.

That album in particular borrows quite a bit from Jon Hopkins…

And then I guess if you’re looking for more vocal-based work, the only album released by Holy Other is still exceptional

Thanks for the effort! Kiasmos sounds decent on first listen. Will try the others after a further delve.

Ah this is good!

Moderat’s 3 albums are amazing, maybe also Andy Stott, Mark Pritchard, Caribou, Baths…

Trentemøller too - a huge influence on Nico

Much prefer their pre Lushlife output. Beat is a masterpiece.

White Poppy uses quite a lot of guitar, but it’s quite electronic too:

And you must have tried Quique era Seefeel right?

As far as electronic with vocals go I quite like Samaris. Silkigranger is better then their new one but the single gives you an idea of what sort of music it is:
