Chill Out Zone

The Chill Out Zone is a long-running TV show which first appeared on MTV Europe in late 1993. Its main focus lies on ambient music, laidback house, trip hop, jungle and chillout trance, both recent and classic. Although no longer scheduled on MTV Europe since August 2010, the show is still carried by a small number of localized MTV feeds across Europe every weekend in the early morning hours, typically on Saturday and/or Sunday between 03:00 and 06:00 a.m. CET. Throughout the '90s and the '00s, the show consistently maintained its original format, i.e. a non-stop selection of experimental and rarely seen music videos. Classic artists played on Chill Out Zone since its heyday include: Future Sound Of London, Radio Massacre International, Aphex Twin, The Orb, Orbital, William Orbit, Massive Attack, Portishead, Lazonby, Josh Wink and Biosphere. Chill Out Zone is also the only program on TV where a number of excerpts taken from the classic '90's 3Lux and X-Mix video series released by !K7 can still be seen on a regular basis.
At present, the show is still broadcast every weekend on MTV Adria and, albeit with a slightly different format consisting of a more indie/acoustic-orientated selection of music, on MTV Pulse (France).
