Haha, yeah maybe a bit too early. It's a lot to digest I know.
We can always edit our chart to make changes along the way.
Let's take some time to do this. :)

01. Bluetech - Holotrope (WHAT a wonderful year from Evan Marc ... 4 released albums and all of them are amazing! , the Holotrope is the best one! )
02. Desert Dwellers - Breath (A perfect combination between psychill and mid-tempo )
03. Avaris - The Forgotten Language (The most shamanic-forest album in a while after Tengri's album Icaros back in 2013)
04. Distant System - Infinite Continuum (The style is very similar to the Spiral Empire album , and probably it's the last musical work from Tyler Smith aka Androcell)
05. Entheogenic - Hypatia (Perfect for meditation and study, just in that mood I realized how this album is special!)
06. Cabeiri - Molecule Language (Focus the bass lines)
07. Lauge - Dawn (Very quality and melodic chill-gressive)
08. Spatialize - Beyond the Radar (Reminds me OTT)
09. Shwamp - Inner Landscape (VERY PSYCHEDELIC Downtempo Psy-BASS music!
10. Deep in Mind - Autumn to Spring (This guys combine live instruments: guitars, violin and more, very beautiful music!) 

Bonus: 11. Moon Duo - Stars Are the Light (Lovely psychedelic space-rock album)

 

Just an AMAZING year for Downtempo music! there were SO many good albums so it was hard to pick only 10.
I see a promised future for this genre.

I'm really recommend to check this list, you might like some of it. worth a try :)

Lots of names that I can't add in. Some spots likely to change as I re-listen to 2019.

Uptempo

1. Dreamchild - Akashic Dreaming (Unreleased Goa Records): Beautiful and exciting style, has taken number 1 spot for longevity and sustained excitement.
2. Median Project - Constellation (Suntrip Records): Now Number 2 for most listens and taking this style of Goa to another level.
3. Va - Goa Gilde (Kali Earth Records): Still fresh in but listened enough to know this will stay in the list
4. Merr0w - Odysseus (Global Sect): After more listens this has moved up the list, another stellar advancement of skill.
5. Sykespico - Perspective (Suntrip Records): Could easily have been number 1 as well. Thick melodies abound.
6. Elysium - Live ...And Beyond (Digital Reprints): Filled with seriously groovy and fantastic trance music.
7. Psylent Buddhi - Secrets of the Atom (Suntrip Records): Everything that is good about Goa can be found in this album.
8. Pete & Pan - Return of the Goddess (Goa Madness Records): For originality and straight up enjoyment
9. Jaraluca - The Prologue (Mamomam Records): Craaaazy Trance music and a big progression in Jaraluca's skill and style.
10. Jagoa - The First Steps (Self-Release): Thoroughly worthy of a spot on the list, emotional, trance dancey & exciting.

Downtempo

1. Lauge - Dawn (Iboga Records)
2. Shamanizm Parallelii - Blue Lizard (Neogoa Records)
3. Advanced Suite - TAKING MUSic in tHe ROOMS th&t DreaMT (Self Release)
4. Blisswave - Manvantara (Melusine Records)
5. Va - Ethnomystica (Mystic Sound Records)
6. Bosa - Eyes of The Jaguar (Self-Release)
7. Zen baboon - Origiro (Self-Release)

This is my TOP 10 for 2019

GOA & PSYCHEDELIC

01 - K.U.R.O. & Charm - Japanese Vibrations (DAT Records)
02 - Battle Of The Future Buddhas - The Light Behind The Sun (Suntrip Records)
03 - Psylent Buddhi - Secrets Of The Atom (Suntrip Records)
04 - V.A. - ZNA Retro Futuristic Compilation II (DAT Records & ZNA Gathering)
05 - V.A. - Analog Visions (DAT Records)
06 - Total Eclipse - Tokyo Live (Suntrip Records)
07 - Spindrift - Deep Nature (StereoHemia Records)
08 - Ree.K - Early Tracks (Hypnodisk)
09 - Pleiadians - Pyramid (EtnicaNet)
10 - Ultimate Xperience - Realm Of A New Dawn (Neogoa)

DOWNTEMPO

01 - Avaris - The Forgotten Language (Axios Records)
02 - Eric Electric - Run Away Controls (Bass Star Records)

 

Tips for the new producers:
Sorry, nothing "ringed my bell", try harder!
STOP using psy-trance machine gun bass everywhere,
DON'T make everything sound "Full-on", lower down your damn BPM!,
STOP over-compress your mastering!!!!!!!!!!!,
BE more unique and for God shake, FORGET the typical Goa or Psy forms or use them minimal!,
DON'T copy-paste ideas from others or from the past,
Create your own sound! This is the ONLY way to be remembered in the future!

One exception,
Pete & Pan - Return of the Goddess, somehow this one touched me... very good album but not that good for the top-10

1 Kuro and Charm

2 BoTfb

3 ZNA gathering

4 Toal Eclipse

5 Psylent Buddhi

6 Elysium pack (most listened for sure)

7 Pleiadians

8 Analog visions

Median project was good but wouldn't put in the list, Ree k. had some good tracks but others were hit and miss, UX didn't like at all. I'm curious about pete and pan. Everyone here seems to praise it. Will go and buy if it has some much acclaim. Will add more or change order later.

Edit: Bought Pete and Pan CD and Hypnoxock because I heard it in the past on youtube and liked it!

i'm still in the process of compiling and actually listening to the albums of last year. so the following draft is subject to change.

 

Uptempo:

1. UX - The Realm of a New Dawn
2. Median Project - Constellation
3. Shadow Chronicles - Arcadia
4. VA - Order Odonata: Metamorphosis
5. Mechanimal - Digital Nature
6. Psylent Buddhi - Secrets of the Atom
7. Lunarave - Transmigration
8. Braincell - Gaia
9. Pleiadians - Pyramid
10. Protonica - Symmetry

 

i already notice two trends here. first that there's a conspicious absence of goa trance (i'm not really a fan of that chaotic melodic sound such as celestial intelligence, sykespico, morphic resonance, ...) and second that albums i have listened to more appear higher on the list ;)

 

Downtempo:

1. Advanced Suite - Shapes of Nothing
2. Lauge - Dawn
3. Globular - Untangled Everything
4. Tengri - Tengri and Friends
5. Astronaut Ape - Deep
6. Saafi Brothers - Mystic Cigarettes
7. Unknown Reality - Gaia
8. VA - Temple of Dub
9. Distant System - Infinite Continuum
10. Proxxeus - Celephais

Checked Pete and Pan's cd. It's quite fluffy, lacks oomph. Could be nice at a beach in the summertime but can't see much more to it. Definitely wouldn't put it in the list.

1. Celestial Intelligence

2. Sykespico - Perspective

3. Merrow - Odysseus

4. VA - Goa Glide

5. Sky Technology - Rainbow Spirit

 

1- I just dig their melodic style, reminds me sometimes of Astral Projection and other classics from the 90s in a modern cloak

2- Awesome Oldschool Goa made in 2019!

3- Very energetic Stuff. Some tracks are VERY good.

4- Best Compilation from the last 10 years maybe....?

5- I would never leave my slavs without a Kiss on the Forehead. Colorfull Powerburst from Ukraine!

very special and well made Trance Music. Ukraine People were the once who invented Newschool Goa "SynSun - Quazar" so show some Respect ...

HAHAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA. Stop it! No really first newschool track from Suntrip Rec was from SynSun, even if Suntrip Rec. wasnt born at that time ;)

Most tracks came from our own DAT tapes archives (over 500 original tapes in total, from all members of Dat Records and Unreleased Goa Project), plus lot more from our collaborators (old collectors and DJ's) ...the rest are from the artists themselves :-)
Lot more will be released in the future!

Nice to see Leo Bergman in the top of your list!
The man is sooo much more psychedelic than all those cheesy and over-advertised producers (old and new)

Tip: if you are looking for true psychedelic music, look no further!
