Today, we publish Favourite “downtempo/ambient dj” poll results. Yesterday, was an the international DJ day ;) So congratulations to our winners and to all DJs in the world for making music alive and keeping us entertained at bars, openairs, festivals and club events !
Your job is not the easiest but someone has to do it , right ?
Here, at psybient.org we appreciate, 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 more likely 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 valorized. Also some DJ’s are event organizers and label managers. Some of greatest chill artist have participated in our podcast, have a listen.

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. If you feel like sharing your thoughts on this subject, please join us in our forum post here.
Future of this project:
We will gladly use your paypal, bitcoin or bank transfer donations to keep alive and to develop further and the psybient.org project website.
