Award winning Australian composer / synthesist’s 5th international release featuring 14 Tracks over almost 74 Minutes of Melodic Electronic Chill Music!

About this artist and his influences…
Jim Ottaway is already known at CDS Towers for his Melodic Instrumental Space Ambient series of CD-R releases: ‘Aurora’, ‘Orion’, ‘Centauri’ and ‘Liquid Moon’. Those, together with other themed releases: ‘Chill Factor’ and ‘Blitz’, plus his more recent factory pressed titles: ‘Power’ (originally a 2013 CD-R, but re-released in January 2015 on CD), 2015’s ‘Invisible Vortex’ and 2016’s ‘Southern Cross’, both of which are Digi-Pak productions, all stylishly presenting Jim's musical alter-ego as someone who injects 100% heart and soul into the music he makes and great attention to detail into how he presents it to his public.

While trying to create his own style of electronic music, Jim openly acknowledges the influence that artists such as: TANGERINE DREAM, Edgar Froese, ENIGMA, Vangelis, PINK FLOYD, Johannes Schmoelling, Christopher Franke, CODE INDIGO, Gary Wright, RADIO MASSACRE INTERNATIONAL and Aussie artists: Christopher Buckman, Tony O'Connor and Lisa Gerrard have had on his music over the years.

About this album…
Although Jim had released a few earlier electronic music albums in Australia, ‘Chill Factor’ was the first of Ottaway’s electronic pop/dance styled albums for the international market, and was his alter-ego in the musical sense.
This album contains some beautifully melodious pieces like: ‘Chill’, ‘New Beginnings’ and ‘Loving Mother’, the later of which is like a cross between an evocative Vangelis film theme and a romantic Richard Clayderman ballad. ‘More Than Time’ is also a very beautiful track with a serene sense of melody that again echoes Vangelis at times.
‘Chill Factor’ includes three tracks (‘Sojourn’, ‘Oh Baby... Yeah!’ and ‘Loving Mother’) which have been finalists in various Australian songwriting and music awards in Electronic/Dance and Instrumental categories in recent years.
It also features a few remixes of tracks included on earlier Australian-only releases, including: ‘Feelin' So Good’ and ‘New Beginnings’.
