Psynews "Best of 2017". LET'S DO THIS!

Recommended Posts

Void Mantra    82

These "best of" have been an invaluable source of recommendations when it comes to psytrance. I just refuse to let it die :) For whatever reasons, it seems we're not getting the 2017 one...until now.

Please cast your vote, in order from best to worst, in these two categories: Uptempo and Downtempo. Also, please name a max. of 10 albums for each. First album on your list will get 10 points, second will get 9...and so on. I'll compile the results by the end of (March) April. Of course, the higher the participation, the better!

Also, it would be great if you mods could pin this one :)

Update: Results will be compiled by the end of April instead of March to gather a maxium of votes.

Fluorotronik isn't really a "reissue" as it wasn't actually released until last year.

the results are going to be very interesting this year. there are no clear favourites this time, so i have absolutely no idea which albums will come out on top. it's not even guaranteed that a goa album will take the first spot ;)

No clear winner indeed. It's all over the place really. Might wait a little bit to gather more votes, what do you think?
