Like most artists these days I have music in lots of places online. I actually have no idea where a lot of it has ended up!
But here are the places I think are easiest to play, stream, download and buy it.
Almost everything (other than DJ mixes) gets put on my Soundcloud page one way or another. Check it for regular updates. A lot of the tracks are a free download.
Here’s the Soundcloud playlist for my album Helios. It was a Creative Commons release. All tracks on this album are free. Helios is also available for free download from the Ektoplazm website. Ektoplazm is the world’s number one source for free and legal psytrance, techno, and downtempo music downloads in MP3, FLAC, and WAV format.
There are a lot of chillout music DJ mixes on my Mixcloud. Mixed in between the down-tempo stuff there’s also the odd psytrance, house music and techno mix. You’ll find a few eclectic sets and other things in between here too.
There’s a 3 hour mix in there somewhere for giving birth to. (Really!)
If you want to support me directly (and any other independent musical artists you like) then one of the best ways is buying their music on Bandcamp.
The service Bandcamp offers is very straight forward and transparent from the artist’s side. If you buy music (or merch) from independent acts and labels then please consider using their bandcamp page. It really helps.
Most of my older tracks are available for free download on bandcamp. So get some free .mp3s!

A playlist of my releases available there is in web player below.
Spotify playlist for chilled psychedelic downtempo music.
Also here’s a Spotify playlist for down-tempo psychedelic tracks. This WAS a collaborative playlist but due to misuse I’ve removed the collaborative option. However you can still add your own favourites, just drop me a message on social media on share a track to the inbox playlist on Spotify. Please keep the music to Chillout, Psychill, Ambient, Psybient and related down-tempo genres. I love songs (on other playlists!) but here keep it instrumental and other worldly please.
Let’s build a fantastic playlist. Check it out in the webplayer below.
I really miss the random discoveries that the Psychedelic Downtempo playlist used to have when it was collaborative so I’ve made a new Inbox Playlist on Spotify.
Submit music here and I’ll regularly move suitable music to the main Psychedelic Downtempo playlist on Spotify.
Hopefully this should help keep some of the spam at bay.
I’ve also simplified the name. Have a listen to what else is already on the main Psychedelic Downtempo list before submitting music. It’s pretty obvious the sort of thing that fits.
So far most people have been super cool about how they use the playlist. I’ve heard music and artists new to me that I’ll be checking out further. This sort of thing is exactly what groups of people that gather on the internet and Spotify are both great at doing.
Predictably though I do have to give it a clear out of unsuitable music every couple of days. Often it’s music in genres I like but doesn’t fit in at all with what this list is supposed to be about. Or it’s just really badly produced music! If this sort of thing continues then I’ll change the playlist alteration access to just me. Then maybe once a week open it to public changes. Should stop a lot of the spammy stuff.
But please do post music you think others will enjoy, have a good listen first though to see what the vibe is.
Update 5.2.17 (text below from Facebook post)
Well this was inevitable. I’ve removed over a dozen completely unsuitable tracks from my Spotify collaborative downtempo playlist in the last 24 hours. Most have been added by artists themselves and are not even close to what the playlist is supposed to be about.
So I’ve turned off the collaborative setting, for now at least. The list itself is very much still there so go ahead – Click and follow it! There’s some great music there.
Having a playlist completely open to the whims of the internet has had some good results though. People and artists have added music I would never have found out about otherwise. Anyone could go in and add, move and delete the tracks. So actually it’s amazing that the whole thing wasn’t completely sabotaged at some point.
Thanks to those of you that have added music and joined to listen so far. Looking forward to more new musical discoveries through this, just in a slightly different way now.
What I’ll probably do in the long run with this is make it open for any public additions once a week at a set time. That should keep the random aspect of this playlist intact and mean that it’s not just my taste in music or well known acts that get posted.
But for now message me on here or comment below this post with any suggestions for tracks to be added to the list. Old or new, well known acts, unknown artists or your own music, it’s all good. If it fits the playlist description just drop me a line or a comment below and let me know.
