There are only a few days left in 2017! Before this year disappears for good, stroll down memory lane with some of its best releases!


2017 has been an incredible year for electronic music. Between the phenomenal albums released across all different genres and the singles that dominated the festival season from start to finish, there has been no shortage of good music no matter what your tastes. With the new year on the horizon, we wanted to give you one last look at the Top EDM Tracks of 2017!

Deciding on just ten or so tracks that represented the year was proving to be nearly impossible, so rather than cut it down so far, we opted to traverse the musical spectrum for a wider array of selections to illustrate how superb the releases truly were in 2017.

From some of the year’s most popular releases, like Above & Beyond’s “My Own Hymn” or Skrillex & Habstrakt’s “Chicken Soup” to lesser-known artists and labels that may not have caught everyone’s eye, there is a little something for everyone on this playlist. So sit back, relax, and enjoy a journey through another exceptional year of electronic music.

Erin has been listening to electronic music on and off since the early 2000s, which is when trance music captured her heart and soul. Over the years, she has expanded into a number of other styles and genres, especially techno and house. Originally from Chicago, she spent the better part of the last decade seeking out any electronic music she could find, and traveled the length of the country in search of some incredible moments at festivals like EDC, TomorrowWorld, and the Dirtybird Campout. Having since settled in Denver, she focuses her energies primarily on the house and techno scene around town and traveling to mountain and west coast festivals whenever possible.
