Following the rise in popularity of chillout rooms during the early to mid-’90s, techno and house producers began to explore the outer limits of ambient, emboldening it with a dose of sonic futurity.

Virtual Dreams collects experimental ambient and chill-out tracks made between 1993-97, from artists including David Moufang, Richard H. Kirk, Mark Pritchard & Kirsty Hawkshaw, The Primitive Painter, Dubtribe Sound System and more.

The compilation marks Music From Memory’s 50th release, as well as the first in a forthcoming series of compilations that collects the work of multiple artists with similar threads in their music.
