Amazing Job! And thanks for taking the time to do this.

Not to be unexpected but a strong Suntrip turn out is well deserved with some hot hot releases last year. I thought we might have seen some more VA's but if it had to be one then Shambala is well deserved. Surprised Etnica & Ufomatka didn't make it in, but no complaints from me either way. Also 100% Goa in the top ten is not unsurprising but still interesting.

As for downtempo it's nice to see some familiar names but also some unheard releases that i'll be checking out... if I ever stop listening to Nibana.

Also I will continue pretending that all the highlighted selections in the results are not a result of me using coloured text in the original thread but a slight nod to all my selections by your Mr Aspartic. ;)

Once again thanks for putting this together.

The Etnica re-release would've been in the top 10 surely have I voted... but I decided not to, mainly to prevent myself from voting my own album (haha yes I like my own music :rolleyes:). Still glad to see it in top 10, only self-released one and with next to no promotion... thanks for the support guys and cheers to the other top tenners you deserved it.

I hope this year many more people will vote, because this list is so full of good music to discover.
Like Unknownium. This album completely slipped by me. Listening to it now and I'm amazed!
That downtempo list is also gold. So difficult to find good downtempo. Here's a shortlist. :)
