Listing the best “chill” artists and albums

For several years I have been collecting and listening to chill/lo-fi.

The genre cannot be strictly defined but often integrates elements and styles of electronic, classical, jazz, folk, alternative pop/rock and soul.

The result: perfect weekend listening, study music and office-hour loops.
