Formerly Saturday 11 p.m. - 1 a.m.

Weekend Energy, formerly heard on Saturday nights, featured two hours of the best techno, dance and electronica from around the world.

When electronic music is good, you can dance to the same song several times on repeat. When electronic music is great, it will blow your mind. 2015 was a great year for the swiftly evolving genre. This list began as a 4 hour playlist of my favorites featured on Weekend Energy and through a mighty effort, I narrowed it down to the top 10 albums of the year, with some honorable mentions at the end.
