i found 2015 a rather weak year. leaving DAT aside i think there won't be much to remember in the future. some really great albums for sure, several disappointments also (Skizologic, Mirror System/System7...)

the downtempo section itself is a disappointment too, can't believe that so many people never listen to relaxed electronic music. i think in terms of variety and musical aspiration that the downtempo stuff has alot more to offer than the standard fullon-psychedelic-goa-blaff. even if there wasn't much downtempo music that grabbed my attention last year, the few are almost all equally good with great variations in tempo and style

There were a number of good compilations and reissues, but here's a couple of albums that I enjoyed the most:

 

Uptempo

1. Skizologic - Robotized
2. Qiujan - Ritual To The Light
3. Skizologic - Ease Your Mind EP

 

I thought that a lot of other albums were well produced, but not particularly distinctive. I listened once or twice but never went back.

 

(In the "All Other" category, I also nominate Ozric Tentacles - Technicians Of The Sacred.)

What's wrong ppl? Last year this same poll had 4 pages and 67 replies. How come so little interest now? I think it is imperative that artists and labels get feedback and this kind of voting is a good way to give it.

some people prefer to vote just before the poll is closed.

 

also, maybe there is less discussion this time? but if we keep talking about it, we'll reach 4 pages easily ;)

Uptempo:

 

1. Ohm Mind - Birds Will Go to Heaven

2. Asia 2001 - Psykadelia

3. Pleiadians - I.F.O.

4. Doof - Let's Turn On

5. Moonweed - Voice of Jupiter

 

Downtempo:

1. Shamanizm Paralleli - Tales From Colored Tepee

2. Man Of No Ego - Blinkers Removed

 

There was alot of great stuff for fans of the golden era, but this year will be the year for newcomers and other young artists. Looking forward to Imba and Agnetivax. :)

 

And the reason, why my Downtempo list is so short is because I just discovered it recently for me and I am more into Psybient and didn't discover alot of good stuff for me. Maybe this year there will be some great releases.
