 Sade: MU Icon

Pop’s reigning minimalist, Sade has continued to refine her style from the jazzy soul of her 1980s UK sophisti-pop beginnings to her global domination as a roots-of-downtempo torch singer. Everything about Sade’s music is lean, stripped-down and precise while her cool exterior expertly contradicts the often gritty subject matter of her songs, which deal with ordinary people struggling to overcome heartbreak, racism and poverty.

The Last of Us: Friday Night Gamers

It’s almost the weekend which can only mean one thing…it’s time for a Friday Night Gamers playlist. This week saw the re-release of The Last of US and to celebrate this, we’ve created an all-new soundtrack to play along to. Enjoy!

Classic Rock Goes Disco

Rock and disco were supposed to be mortal enemies but everybody from The Stones, Elton John and ELO hit the dance floor during the late 1970s. The disco success of the Bee Gees and Rod Stewart lost them their rock fan base while the followers of KISS, The Grateful Dead and Alice Cooper just pretended like their heroes never got down and funky. David Bowie and Roxy Music earned cool points by frosting up black American grooves with icy European reserve, pointing the way to the 1980s dance-rock sound while Blondie and The Clash proved that even punks just wanted to have fun.

Hip-Hop: New Releases

This batch of hip-hop New Releases leads off with Trey Songz’ Fugees-quoting “Na Na” and then continues to some huge tracks from Drake, T.I. and T-Pain. If you like your hip-hop more on the cosmic side then try the new one from Shabazz Palaces or if you’re a fan of the old school, dig into the scratch-heavy Statik Selektah.

1982 Rewind: The Hits

Fast Times At Ridgemont High, Arthur, Flashdance – if any of these movies mean anything to you, you’re sure to love this mix of the hits of 1982. What an insane year for new wave (Human League, Soft Cell, The Cars), soul (George Benson, Dazz Band) and tight pants-wearing rockers (Journey, Survivor, Loverboy). But the artist of the year was definitely Hall & Oates whose Rock ’N Soul album was a sublimely crafted pop album. Hats off to Lindsey Buckingham whose “Trouble” might be the most perfect pop song he ever wrote.

A Galaxy Mixtape

Celebrate the success of the film Guardians of the Galaxy with this selection of songs featured in the sci-fi comedy.
