These albums are considered the best electronic albums of 2017. Electronic music is a pretty broad genre definition, and this list is mostly for the subgenres Leftfield, Post-dubstep, Ambient, Chill, Chillwave, Down Tempo, Dub, Trip Hop and related subgenres.
The list is not comprehensive but contains some releases that we think stand out from the rest. This list is ongoing and gets updated as the year pass.
Dub Tractor – Hello Ambient Wash
Hello Ambient Wash is Anders Remmer’s universe updated to 2017, one of the best albums he has put out. At the time of writing, it is only available on vinyl
Ulrich Schnauss & Jonas Munk – Passage
This collaboration between wizards of electro-gaze Jonas Munk (Manual) & Ulrich Schnauss, has put out a wonderful playful ambient and euphoric electronica album. Somewhat related to the works of Schnauss with Tangerine Dream, just way better.
Washed Out – Mister Mellow
Washed Out has never sounded lazier and laid back, than on this perfect masterpiece. The lush dreamy vocals and the psychedelic flavors of this album makes it a joy to listen to from start to end
Baths – Romaplasm
Romaplasm is fanciful, vibrant and uplifting electronica at its best.
Genre: Electronic/Indie Pop
Biosphere – The Petrified Forest
The Petrified Forest is Biospheres darkest work so far, it’s moody, cinematic, repetitive and cold. Sad and astonishingly beautiful
