O'er, is it really me to kick things off? Ok, my top albums 2021:

 

Uptempo 

1) Battle of the Future Buddhas Songs From a Forgotten Memory

2) Khetzal Etamines 

3) Artifact 303 From the Stars 

4) Moon Beasts On the Edge

5) Various Carpe Noctem 

 

Downtempo

1) Entheogenic Animism (listed here as a 2021 release, though I'm not sure about that as Discogs says 2020)

I am more humble these days, not mentioning albums anymore but rather "tracks that blew me away" ... across all styles ... feel free to ignore my ramblings if you are after albums only, but here's my 2 cents:

...in 2021, Atmos vs. S-Range - Lords of 16th was such a track - fabulous one that I enjoyed in many festival sets before and I couldn't wait and was very happy it finally came out.

...and Banco de Gaia - Obsidian (Framewerk Full On Mix) genuinely blew me away, it even inspired me to that 2o22 predition thread, it's very awesome, you can almost FEEL the breeze of fresh air on your skin that this brings to our sound, I swear...

...and as a third one, I'd even mention Go_A - ШУМ ("SHUM") even though it's commerecial (I mean the not totally commercial version though, the one where they dance in protective suits in the video), but not only is the band title a brilliant play of words for our forum (made a thread anyway ;) ) but it also is representative for this kind of trend where old folk vocals are integrated into electronic tracks ... this became a bit more known or, say, common, in that last year I think - or maybe it's just the algorithm recommending me the stuff, I cannot tell...
