Mark Pritchard and Tom Middleton have pumped out a lot of highly acclaimed ambient and downtempo electronica since the 90's. I have always been a huge fan of Global Communcation since I first heard 76:14 a few decades ago.
I think the main defining characteristics of Global Communication are beautifully arranged melody, uplifting emotion and uniquely designed drum patterns.
All time favorite
La Soleil Et La Mer is my all time favorite song by Global Communication. The synth melodies are very warm and pleasant and the unique drum timing has a hypnotic effect.
