Hello, this topic is dedicated to music in which the soundscape can make you feel a little off kilter, detached, tripped out, or otherwise hazed. Please note this thread is not for "hype" music.

I'll start off with a few of my favorite music that sonically makes me feel a little disassociated:

Thanks for the contribution. I definitely recognize a lot of the sounds in those from Snoop Dogg's first album.

Awesome songs you posted. Yeah, they totally nail the dissociative vibe I've been looking for more of. I think that key elements to a song being that way are the echoes and repetitions, the pitch modulations, different parts of the mix being faded. Dissociation is all about part of your mind kind of wandering off so when the mix seems to be kind of splitting off it can induce that. Also it tends to be darker tones, and arpeggios and voice modified vocals. DJ Screw is a great example. As is a lot of vaporwave and some synthwave.
