Vibrasphere – 10 Essential Downtempo Tracks
In the late 90s, Rickard Berglöf of the goa group Subcouds and Robert Elster formed what would become one of the most famous duos in the progressive trance / psychill scene.
Their first full album “Echo”, which was released on Spiral Trax in 2000, immediately launched Vibrasphere as a major influence in the progressive trance scene. While not quite minimalist in design, their sound exhibited the clarity of a Swedish winter night, avoiding the bombast in which some progressive producers fall.

Vibrasphere would continue carving out their place in the progressive pantheon over the years, with occasional ambient and downtempo tracks gracing their albums and finding their way into Ultimae Records compilations. It wasn’t until 2006 that they released their first full downtempo album, “Selected Downbeats Vol. 1”. Astonishingly, a psychill classic album was born, more than seven years into their stellar recording career.
Vibrasphere disbanded in 2010, although Robert Elster still performs live as Vibrasphere.
