Recommended Posts

It's time to vote for your favourite uptempo and downtempo psy albums of 2015. You can vote for up to 10 releases (including albums, compilations, EP's and singles) in each category; your first will be awarded 10 points, your second 9, and so on. Cast your vote by replying to this thread with your votes written in the following format (the label is optional, but if you can be bothered to put it in it will make counting votes easier):

 

Uptempo:

1: Artist - Title (label)

2: Artist - Title (label)

3: Artist - Title (label)

4: Artist - Title (label)

5: Artist - Title (label)

10: Artist - Title (label)

 

The voting will be open until the end of March (more precisely, until the earliest point in April when I have time to lock the thread and start counting). If you change your mind after voting, don't make a new post - just edit your existing post. Also, if you reply to a post in this thread then please remove any votes from the quoted material (I will be copying and pasting the thread into an automatic vote-counting doohickey, so if votes appear twice they may be counted twice).

Uptempo: just copy/paste from my rated cds list. So this is the most fair option I guess.

 

Note 1: this are only printed cds rating. No digital only ones... (I never started rating those yet...)

Note 2: Some releases like the new Global Sect and some Neogoa stuff are not rated yet... Have to find the time. May change the list later that means!

 

1: Pleiadians - IFO Remixed (DAT Records)

2: VA - Aurora Sidera (Suntrip Records)

3: Celestial Intelligence - Perpetual Energy (Suntrip Records)

4: Opale - Anaconda's Dance (DAT Records)

5: Denshi Danshi - Fluid Dynamics (Suntrip Records)

6: VA - Scandi 90s : The Vikings Return (Zion604 Records)

7: VA - Goa Energy (Timewarp Records)

8: Night Hex - Viziuni Nocturne (Suntrip Records)

Will add 'Denshi-Danshi' and the 3CD Compilation from Global Sect Records when i'll actually order them.

 

Weird year, Those top 3 on my list are top notch ace stuff, will remember 2015 as a great year music wise

just based on those 3 releases !

 

And i cant decide wich one dissapointed to me more, the new Hux Flux album, or the latest Koxbox album.

 

*I Usually list 2-3 releases i like, but 2015 has been a realy good year imo.

Hoping 2016 to be amazing aswell with the new Toi Doi and Etnica :)

Always the same issue... Is it ok to add Asia 2001 - Psykadelia? I did add Pleiadians to my top 10 because there are "unreleased" tracks included, what about pure re-releases? :) I was even doubting about Pleiadians, as the music is definaly not 2015 :D

Please note:
-I only rated CD releases as I am still lagging behind with the digital-only ones :-(.
-Regarding the UX release (Audissey) I suggest to date this to 2016 as it didn't get shipped earlier - otherwise it would be in the above list (Discogs shows release date of 01 July 2015)).

BTW, according to Global Sect's e-mails, The Mystery Of Crystal Worlds physical version wasn't fully printed in 2015 either. It was finished and shipped in 2016. I got my tracking number on 13 Jan. However, bonus wav and free mp3 downloads were both available on 25 Dec 2015 so I guess at least one legit and separately available digital version was out in 2015. There's a slight difference to last year's Radical Distortion case, where you could download the bonus files of a CD preorder in 2014 but no standalone version had been released yet. That's why I didn't include it in my 2014 list.

 

Tricky.

Thanks for your Mana Source vote bro many thanks. :)

Appreciated.

 

Same great stuff here. I ain't changing anything on that list except that 11 one there more to a title than just nothing but sure each one to their own thoughts.
