With June being the sixth month of the year, there couldn’t be a better moment to reflect on the first half of 2017. For some people, this could mean reevaluating your New Year’s resolutions, but for us, it means looking back at some of the best music that has been released this year.
A few days ago, we published our list of ‘Breakout Artists of 2017 (So Far)‘ and today, we’re following it up with our ‘Top 20 Tracks of 2017 (So Far)’. Songs were voted on by our staff of writers and we feel that they selected a nice assortment of artists.
Check out the top 20 tracks below and let us know that you think.

Illenium’s “Fractures” is that amazing track that everybody is tripping over themselves to use in festival aftermovies. It’s got that awesome future bass combined with an infectious melody and vocals.
3Calvin Harris – Slide
You know Calvin Harris was gonna make it to the top 5, since he can’t help but dominate the radio waves.

Deadmau5 might be all about that testpilot techno right now, but his recent return to melodic productions like this one garnered him plenty of praise from our team.
1RL Grime – Reims
RL Grime burst back onto the scene and snagged the top spot.
