Tracks you got directly from the artist

So Beatport is coming up short and you realize you've never heard this gem outside of a mixed setting. Sure enough, Discogs confirms your suspicions with either a white/promo entry or with no entry at all, so you think: the guy is right there on Facebook, what harm could it do to just ask if they having it lying around, especially if this gem is an old one?

And it works. Sometimes. I've managed to score a handful this way, but the ones off the top of my head:

Andy Archer sent me a special edit Trafik did of Dark Globe's 'Extended Attic Window mix' of Far Leys they did for Electric Calm vol. 3

Contacted Steve Gerrard of Wrecked Angle for their remix of Syntax- Bliss (which I'm super excited to have).

Stian Klo was nice enough to send me a copy of his unreleased remix of Matthew Dekay's 'Time To Think', completed sometime in 2004.

Ever try it? What did you get? I'm also interested in any rejections you may have had, either due to licensing or 'fuck you' reasons.

Lars Leonhard sent me a bunch of his albums on CD. Does that count?

Whirloop - Modifying My Earth

Never released it so I asked him about it (because I love it) and the good chap put it up for download on his website.

I once asked Whirloop for his remix of Bird Of Prey (this was a few years later when it obviously wasn't going to get released) but hd didn't reply

I've got quite a few this way though, Terry Bones was good enough to send me his remix of Wavy Gravy plus the original of Introspection in the few years when Vandit weren't on any digital download sites.

I heard this song somewhere a few years ago while listening to Sirius XM (might have been from Pretty Lights' radio show?), commented on Soundcloud if the song was available to purchase, and he sent me the original .wav of the track. Fun song, hard to put my finger on what type of music this is... maybe if Aphex Twin takes a bit too much E and tries making a skippy, funky trap track?

Ben Gold's sent me a few from his very early days - fav was 1984 which I still play.

Static Revenger very kindly sent me Chocolate Puma's full remix of his track 'Happy People' which I adore.

Hooj sent me Mara's Remix of Space Manoeuvres - Stage One by accident.. happy accident.

Harryson very kindly sent me his remix of Calvin Harris - I'm Not Alone which to this day is one of the best Trance tracks ever made IMO.

And the biggest one? Mystery Machine - Psychedelic Concentration Camp. Released after 19 years of searching on DAT Recordings. Artist sent me the released version, a Psy version and another unreleased track 'This Civilisation'

Been really lucky to be fair.

Now everything sounds so half assed and follows a certain formula...feels like you're listening to the same track over and over.
