My riding iPod (a nano) contains nothing but chill and/or electronica. I tried riding to stuff like Clutch, Tool and other stuff, but it just wasn't makin' it for me. Trance didn't do the trick, either. Couldn't get me in the right rhythm.

Basically, I go with anything by:

Thievery
Massive Attack
Pretty Lights
DJ Shadow
Groove Armada
Royskopp

Also like dub and old roots reggae.

Thx for the suggestions, I'm still checking out a lot of them as I write this.

But so far, when I listen to a lot of this stuff, I feel like it forces me to listen to the lyrics too much. I'm looking for music that just has that vibe that feels "free" and "limitless" and "effortless"... sorry if that doesn't make sense. Any suggestions that just flow let you focus on the melody instead of the lyrics? (examples: the 1st and 2nd vids in my OP).
