Its rhythmic bass in the background blends perfectly with the other instruments. Perfect for those with more need for groove in their calming tracks.
Aphex Twin – Tha
The track starts with some slightly echoed sounding bongos and somewhat speedy electronic bass to lead up to a rather charming calming melody that will leave you deep in thought. The vocals in the background are just people talking with an echo but it leaves a rather lasting impression. Great for any puzzles with a time limit.

Com Truise – Open
For those into 80s style Vaporwave, this is perfect for you.
