So I have such a random collection of electronic music, which isn't all bad, but it means I don't have a great idea of where to go next. I'm listening to Grey Area's And Then the Clouds that is labeled as dub at least on last.fm. Is that ambient-ish or something else?  Any suggestions of other ambient music to check out?

    Ambient dub would be a good approximation.
    Actually, that album is on a label called Waveform
    that I have fond memories of from the mid-90s.
    Somehow, I was able to get, what was then, their
    complete discography - about 12 to 15 titles,
    I think at a discount rate (actual CDs, before
    digital downloading, etc.) and was really
    impressed with what I heard. They were relaxing
    without being cheezy new-age ambient. A few
    good compilations are available from them if you
    want to explore further. I'll have to listen again
    to see if I feel the same way, but I'm thinking: "yes!"

    I just remembered that I still have their "zerO One" t-shirt!

    Also, a nice, believe it or not, album of Christmas music
    was released near the turn of the century called Cheery.

    Well, how long do you have :-)

    In the loose sonic vicinity of the album you mentioned, I like:

    krill.minima - Sekundenschlaf (and there used to be various free netlabel releases around, not sure if they are all still there)
    Pole (the 1, 2, 3 albums)
    Deadbeat (lots of albums, I like Wild Life Documentaries, Journeyman's Annual, and New World Observer)
    Evan Marc - Dreamtime Submersibles is excellent.
    SeverenceHidden Ceilings

    You could also try:
    Carbon Based Lifeforms
    Circular
    early Loscil
    Mind over Midi - Polyphony
    James Place - Voices Bloom
    The Sight Below (last three are more ambient techno really)
