Ambient House

Ambient house traces its origins to the late 80s when DJs branched out from the popular Acid House elements of the day and added Ambient backdrops to the usual four on the floor beats.

The music gained popularity in the rave scene for ravers to come down from drug trips to relaxing music in smaller side tents or rooms.

This style was popularised by artists such as Juno Reactor, The KLF and The Orb.  It declined as a popular genre when the artists moved onto other things, and the rave scene declined in the mid 90s.
