We are very happy to start publishing the “best of the year” community poll results. In this ocassion, we thank to our readers, labels and artist that supported the poll and promoted it in internet. The original poll page was shared more then 3000 times on social networks and that’s allowed us to have relatively objective results. During the two month of poll we gathered 333 votes from 54 countries! It took us a month to find time and step by step make the counts, and starting today we are ready to publish results.
We would appreciate if you share the pages with results in internet in order to promote the “winners”. We believe it can be a good way to thank artist for their music. The share interface is available on the right.
We would like to remind you that psybient.org web project don’t generate any income and exist thanks to the time of few volunteers. Our goal is to promote projects and artists that made you happy through their music during the last year. The music eco-system is very fragile, we had much great music over last years and if we want to continue or get to the higher level, we shall support each other. We have many ideas how to make it better, faster but our resources of time are limited because we need to work on our day jobs. If you can afford a small regular donations to support our project we would be very grateful. The donation interface is accessible via this page or via the top menu.
In order to advance faster and to give you time to digest and discuss results we decided to split the results in several posts, here below you will find a schedule of results publication.
