In 2016 the musical climate, much like the wider world, underwent many changes: from the peak of experimental-flavoured house and techno and the quietly forming rise of ambient, through to the influx of street-level politics within electronica, and the rejuvenation of traditional indie sounds moving deeper into more uncharted and underground-facing channels.
We feel the following ten albums perfectly capture these dramatic shifts and styles that have highlighted the past twelve months. From the politically charged widescreen viewpoint of Hopelessness by Anohni & Babyfather’s call to rise up in "BBF" Hosted By DJ Escrow, through Huerco S. & Biosphere's truly dazed long players of crisp atmospherics designed for those looking to dive into some of the deepest post-club electronica headspaces this side of the 90s.
Elsewhere Mark Pritchard, Cavern Of Anti-Matter, Mica Levi & Oliver Coates turned their hands towards more traditional instrumentation to develop fully engrossing yet startlingly unique takes on folk, kosmiche and modern composition. While Steven Julien, Ash Koosha & Kowton turned in sterling long players that painted new pictures from the well-worn structures of house, techno and electronica, that and are primed to do the damage in whichever scenario they are deployed, be it home-listening junctions or slotted into the more skilled prime time club sets.
