'Weightless' topped a scientific list of the most relaxing pieces of music of all time, research suggesting that it can slow the heart rate, reduce blood pressure and decrease cortisone levels.

Continuous worldwide spotlight on this track sparks new interest daily in Marconi Union and all their music as the story continues its viral reach across the globe online and in print, on radio and TV.

Consistently topping the Billboard Digital Song Sales Charts, iTunes Electronic Music Chart, UK Independent charts, European and Australian charts and the Amazon Ambient Music bestsellers list, Marconi Union are considered one of theleading ambient (and electronic- synth) acts in the world, continuously topping many lists as the most important contemporary ambient artists around today. They have released 12 albums on the Just Music label since their 2003 debut, continually refining and developing a unique musical identity that seamlessly blends elements of dub, jazz, ambience and electronic music.

Originally released in 2014 and their most successful album to date, the band's 7th studio album Weightless (Ambient Transmissions Vol 2) is now to be released on vinyl.

The album includes the now iconic and seminal track Weightless together with 5 more tracks, the latter derived from the ideas of the former, simply entitled Part 1 – Part 6. The tracks are minimal, combining warm drones and drifting sounds with occasional sparse rhythms. The inspiration for the album came after the band were commissioned to collaborate with a sound therapist from the British Academy of Sound Therapy and write a piece of relaxing music, the first "Weightless" track.

 When scientifically tested for its effectiveness scientists reported that their research indicated that the music slowed the heart rate, reduced blood pressure and decreased levels of cortisol, a steroid hormone that is released in response to stress. When the research was made public there was an instant and intense media reaction which continues to this day.
