Best Ambient of 2017

Best Ambient of 2017

Chart positions

This show was 1st in the global ambient chart, 1st in the global chill chart, 1st in the global chillout chart and 1st in the global electronic chart.

It's that time of the year again - end of the year Best Of list time! It's always a difficult task to pick albums for one of these lists. But it's also fun because I get to sort through a bunch of music and it's definitely cool to have a look at other lists and discover a ton of things I missed.

There is no way these lists are close to being definitive. A lot of ambient releases can tend to blur from one to another and the difference between making the list and not making it can boil down to what mood I was in when I first heard the album. There's so much excellent music being released on a weekly basis it's impossible to keep up so this mix is just a bunch of stuff that I liked this past year.

With a 2-hour mix so there's not enough room here to post the tracklist so I will put it at the bottom of the comments. Also in the comments will be my full Best of 2017 list which includes some jazz albums that are not in this mix.
