Welcome to the parallel universe of
CHILL OUT ZONE!
This is a tribute to the most original, brain-expanding, spectacularly bizarre MTV show of all time. A long-standing bastion of stimulating creativity, delightful unpredictability and contagious unconventionality.
CHILL OUT ZONE is a late-night MTV show focusing on the finest underground electronic and alternative music, showcasing a healthy dose of unusual, often challenging and always highly enjoyable tunes. It can be weird and fun, relaxing and danceable, electronic, electric, acoustic, instrumental, ultra-cool, horribly wonderful or a combination of the above. It first appeared on MTV Europe in 1993, bringing together generations of insomniac music enthusiasts across the continent ever since.
It currently airs every Friday night @ 03:00 CET on MTV GSA, which broadcasts free to air to the whole of Europe via satellite (ASTRA 19.2° East).
CHIILL OUT ZONE takes you on an exciting journey through the realms of top-notch audio/visual creations. Whether you're just in from a heavy night out, or simply staying up late searching for something truly special to watch, it provides the perfect soundtrack with a blend of ambient house, trip hop, drum & bass, downtempo, acid, psychedelic trance, laid-back techno, avantgarde, shoegaze, dub, minimal, nu-jazz, lounge, post-modern indie, leftfield electronica and any other mind-bending genre you can (or can't) think of.
With its abundance of trippy graphics, animations and visual concepts coming straight out of the classic rave/clubbing era, the show can be regarded as a real goldmine of seldom-seen, little-known experimental cuts lifted from MTV's incredibly vast music video library, offering a level of editorial curation not found elsewhere on TV - let alone on algorithm-driven online platforms!
You can expect oddities aplenty from stoned Scottish, wasted Welsh, pretentious Poles, deranged Dutch and intoxicated Italian producers, to name but a few.
So let CHILL OUT ZONE be your stereo for the night. No matter how late it is... you definitely won't want to go to bed!
