Splendid Beats Music and Thoughts by Crispy / Leave Trace
Categories: Crispy, Leave Trace

I want to try a bit of an experiment to see who’s reading my blog. I know you are out there based on my webstats, but I know little else.

So let’s try this…. I will create an exclusive mix for everyone that comments on this post by October 31, 2010. In your comment, at the very least, tell me where in the world you are reading from and the kind of mix you’d prefer (Crispy chill, Crispy dance, or Leave Trace chill). After the 31st, I’ll tally the votes and mix a special set in the most requested style, then send out a special download URL for that set. It’s important that you use a valid email address in the comment form so I can get a hold of you.

This mix will never be posted for general download, so get in on the action and comment away!

I’m looking forward to knowing who’s out there. 🙂

what a cool idea! i absolutely love every mix ive downloaded from Splendid Beats, but i especially enjoy the more chilled sounds. “cinematic psybient with a slight world music touch” if you want to be very specific. i’m really looking forward to hearing what you come up with!

I like up-beat down-tempo!
super-chill Ambient that makes me groove with superb bass beats, warbles and whomps.
feel the rhythm.
free the Bass! but keep it mellow.
I worship with you! (with my eyes closed!)

Exciting! 🙂

I am listening from Hungary and my preferences are the same as what travis wrote earlier.

Right now listening to Psilicon Dreams November 2009, and will proceed onto Dec, Jan, Feb, like on many other work days. Thank you for these mixes so much… I am hooked.

That’s cool indeed! 🙂

I’m listening from Austria, and my favourite mixes are Psilicon Dreams (the one from June ’10 is the best ever!); my thing is psychill and psybient.

Can’t wait for your special mix! 🙂

I’m in the Deep River, Ontario, Canada. When I started listening to “elecronica”, I went in at the deep end and couldn’t get enough Goa! Indicidentally and unfortunately, Philosomatika just disappeared. I wish I knew why.

Anyway, since then I’ve gone through several other genres but, thanks to the genius of Simon P and great mixes like yours, Psychill is now at the top of the list, followed by Progressive and then Tribal House. Go figure.

Please let me know if you’ve put together an all uptempo mix that would be good listening while running. Uptempo means faster times!

Hey Crispy, I’m in Boise. Big fan of psychill / ambient psy / whatever you want to call it. Love all your mixes (although steering away from dubstep anymore). Thanks so much for putting these up for free download 🙂

Keep up the great mixes! I’m a listener from Western Australia who found your music through DI.fm and immediately fell in love with Psilicon Dreams. I’d always liked what I heard from you when it popped up but it was the June 2010 mix that got me to look you up and now I’m hooked.
I mainly come here for some crispy chill, but I don’t mind what you mix, go nuts!

PROGRESSIVE PSY!!!! 🙂 Still wishing I hadn’t had to leave during your set at Hotwired. Especially now that I’m half an ocean away. Still, cant complain Hawaii is treating us well so far. Just started a psyland track trying to find a cheep ukalaili that I can record for the breakdown. Come visit and keep up the phat beats.
Peace n beats
