Can you feel it? The world is changing and 2017 has been living proof that it’s happening right before our eyes. Still, these changes have been arriving in a mixed bag: the positive news have often been delivered with bitter pills to swallow. Strangely, it seems that uncertain times always make the music sound so much better. Whether artists are embracing a politically active role, making a social statement, or just providing us with plain fun, they are all part in writing history leaving us with a sonic photograph of the times we are living.

We split this top by countries so you can go travel the map through the sounds of some of the most talented artists. Get to know Austria through the cloud R&B sound of Wandl or visit the Netherlands through the warm electronic productions of Weval —and that is just the beginning. This year brought forth a lot of undeniable talent, so get ready for this trip. Pick a music genre or a country of your choice or just close your eyes and click randomly. While you’re having fun, we’ll be getting ready to discover everything that 2018 has in store for us.
