In 2017, there were a number of excellent releases with electronic beats that captured my attention and kept me moving to their machine rhythms. I find that music like this is great for writing emails, reading, making art, or for doing chores at home. They are also good for when you are on the go... So, whether you are walking, running, cycling, or driving around, let these 11 great rhythmic electronic albums be your soundtrack and enjoy the ride!
 

The Future Sound of London

Very nice collection of work from this long-running and highly influential duo. The CD version is a whole new album of previously unreleased material, while the 3-LP set compiles most of the material on the CD with some other work they released digitally over the last several years. That being said, the vinyl is probably only for diehard fans, but the CD is among their best material to date, making it a must for even casual fans, and also a great place to start for the curious minds who want to take a sonic trip with these UK legends.

Baths is the project by SoCal native Will Wiesenfeld, who plays a mellowed-out blend of electronica and dream-pop with indie-rock and hip-hop influences poking through. He has released three albums under the Baths name, the most recent of which was 2013's critically acclaimed Obsidian. In 2014, he released the Ocean Death EP, featuring the title track as heard below:
