We continue to publish results of the “best of the year” community poll results. It is time to list the most interesting compilations for 2016. VA also known as Compilations have it’s important place in the electronic music culture, as they allow the discovery of new talents, for young artists is a chance to get heard, for established artist is a way to remind the world about them, for label is a way to show all the diversity of it’s sound or just make a conceptual work.

As usual we are concentrated on chillout, psychill, psybient, ambient, psydub, dub, psystep music.

We would appreciate if you share this page with the results in internet in order to bring more attention to our “underground” but growing psychill / psybient scene. It will help to support the “winners” as well. It is our way to thank all ARTIST and LABELS presented here for making awesome music. Good Job guys ! Also make sure to notify artist in the list about our results.

please excuse us for a slow website, it is almost unusable now. we are running a crowdfunding campaign now to fix the problem and upgrade everything. – 2017 – best of results
