We truly love and respect DJs, and we appreciate their hard work of making selections and DJ mix sets. Downtempo / Psychill DJs are usually dedicated supporters of the artists; they are more likely to thank and give feedback to the artists, support them and pay for music. From the listener’s point of view, they do a great job in preselecting music, filtering and identifying the musical gems. They will often dig back to the older tracks and artists and in so doing bring attention to something that might have been forgotten otherwise. DJs are also important contributors to festival and event lineups, and we think their role should be valorised.
Below you will find the selection of DJs that have been chosen by 333 votes from 54 countries! We would appreciate it if you would share the pages with results online in order to promote the ‘favourites’. We think that it can be a good way to thank them for their work. The share interface is available on the right.

DJs and Tracklist:
Note from Gagarin:
Some DJs have the old habit of keeping their tracklist private. While I respect this approach, I think if a DJ decides to put a mix online as “free to listen”, they should include the full tracklist; this is the simplest and most effective way to thank the artists. Having no time is no excuse. Having 1-2 unreleased tracks is also no excuse, as a partial playlist is better than nothing.

Psybient.org Soundcloud dj mix group
We have been running and moderating a soundcloud group with DJ mixes. As of today, it contains 564 mixes and has 1,887 members. We don’t have a dedicated moderator at the moment, so the moderation is not regular (once every 1-2 months), so please be patient when you submit a mix to the group. We invite you to visit our soundcloud group page.
