2017 was a momentous year for music within our world, and with our top 10 albums we have compiled what we consider to be the most important releases from across the board.

While the top spot is taken with the razor-sharp electronica of Jlin's Black Origami, Lee Gamble landed on Hyperdub pushing the boundaries of ambient jungle forward, while Brainwaltzera's update on the classic Braindance sound topped the acid-electronic revival by a mile. With new age receiving a massive resurgence in 2017, the most notable releases by far were from Visible Cloaks mystical reaching Reassemblage, Kaitlyn Aurelia Smith's influence exploring transitions of youth within The Kid and Alessandro Cortini's AVANTI presenting emotionally charged trip into the misty realms of nostalgia. Each album shone a light on a different aspect of this freshly realised sound.

2017 also heralded the much-anticipated arrival of contemporary R&B icon Kelela's debut album Take Me Apart, an incredibly powerful album of soaring songcraft and experimental electronics delivered with a soulful edge. While Forest Swords turned in his greatest album to date with Compassion, splitting between the ecstasy and melancholy of his earlier recordings, his Compassion offered a journey through the nightland edges of his sound world. A journey perfectly complimented by Blanck Mass' brilliant album of brainfreeze techno and angle grinder electronics that was World Eater. While a special dedication goes out to Photay whose Onism packed in the year's tightest selection of ear worms designed to move your mind.
