There are more and more self-released music nowadays, however still music creation and distribution is highly dependent on the labels. Labels helps us to discover new artist, they help artist to reach audience and basically connect creators with the audience. It is time to highlight “the best” labels for psybient, psychill, ambient, psydub, downtempo music, selected by our community. Labels create new genres, develop them and give trends.

We would appreciate if you share this page with the results over the internet in order to promote the “winners” and our poll, we hope to have more participants and more accurate results. Also make sure to notify your favorite label if they have been nominated, we don’t have time to do it, we need to continue counting next results :)


Gratitude to our supporters on Patreon.

Deepest gratitude to all the labels below and special thanks to Bandcamp for their great service and real working solution for music distribution. We want to thank to Ektoplazm for distributing an incredible amount of music.
