can anybody recommend any stuff for me that's dynamic, fresh, happy, not too psychedelic and neither fullon nor cheesy house-prog?

that would be smooth...

Actually good chillout releases for this year? Hmmm... difficult one. Solar Fields was this year, right?

 

Movements, yes. That is this year.

 

Ultimae's put out a few goodies this year actually. Well, pretty much anything they release is good anyway.

Not listened to enough uptempo to really commment but for chill my favs for this year in no particular order are:

 

Aes Dana - Leylines

Solar Fields - Movements

(Val)Liam - Daydreamer

Rena Jones - Indra's Web

Kilowatts - Undercurrent

 

Possibles (only very recently recieved)

V/A - Vampire Sunrise

V/A - Hope

 

Other cool downtempo discoveries that I find incredibly psychedelic are 'Lissom - Nest of Iterations' and 'Scanner - Rockets, unto the edges of edges'. That Scanner album especially has just totally blown me away. Not sure whether they should be included in these lists though.

is it just me, or beside some strong release by already known artist, nothing groundbreaking from the downtempo side?

 

Just thought the same, but then I found that Tribal Matrix 2 compilation from Dakini Records has been released this year aswell!

That one is interesting for sure.

Ocelot - One was surprisingly good (for a darkpsy artist, that is). Furthermore there was Third Ear Audio album, which is not really an unknown name, but still it's their debut and it's very solid. And last but definitely not least, Yggdrasil's "Prose Edda" is well worth checking - it's a blatant, shameless rip-off of Shpongle/YB style (it's all there - acidy arpeggios, stuttering voices, live guitars, latino influences, tempo changes - the lot), but a damn good one.
