Destiny: Friday Night Gamers

This week it’s all about the brand new game, Destiny. Along with our new playlist of epic music, play as the Guardian to defend our home, explore lost worlds and give us hope.

The Chainsmokers: Artist to Watch

This NY-based duo of Andrew Taggart and Alex Pall are a remixing powerhouse; adding their touches of infectious, glittering gold to songs by Chromeo, Ellie Goulding and Jose Gonzalez. Their last two singles , Selfie” and “Kanye”, rode right up to the top of the dance charts.

Post-Punk Revival

Post-punk, the moody scion to the safety pin and leather class of ’77, came back in a huge way at the beginning of the 21st century. Bands like The Strokes, Interpol and Franz Ferdinand pointed the way forward, clutching LPs by Joy Division and Television. Enjoy this mix of that fertile period alongside newer tracks that fit the mold from The National and Future Islands.

Dance/Electronic New Releases, Mid-Sept. 2014

The ever-present Zedd turns Magic’s already profoundly optimistic “Rude” into a euphoric party starter that could probably keep the smiles in place out in Black Rock City. Calvin Harris, Martin Garrix and Afrojack are a few of the other big names in this week’s mix but don’t mix the propulsive, acidic pulses of Bobby Puma’s “Rockin’ With the Beat” or Coyu’s “Profound Pleasure” (maybe the first use of the word “schadenfruede” in a club track.)

Hip-Hop New Releases, Mid-Sept. 2014

Drake and Lil Wayne are out on a world-dominating tour together and also share the spotlight on the new single “Grindin”. Eminem couples up with Sia on the new single “Guts Over Fear.” Outside the global stars, there’s some fantastic tracks from Vince Staples and Hoodie Allen.

Primal Scream: Remembering Robert “Throb” Young

Robert “Throb” Young was the lead guitarist in Primal Scream, joining the band at their inception in the mid to late ’80s and up until 2006. His love of pure rock ‘n’ roll made sure that the band’s excursions into dance, dub and electronics always had a guitar somewhere at the core. Some of the band’s best moments are highlighted in this tribute.

Walk Among the Tombstones, the latest action drama from Liam Neeson, hits theaters today. As is the case with many of Neeson’s past movies, he plays a man who’s willing to go to any lengths to save someone he loves. That got us thinking about some of our favorite movies which feature unlikely action heroes, who are willing to infiltrate the underworld, run over broken glass or face the dangers of the Fire Swamp.

  1. Taken
  2. Die Hard
  3. The Princess Bride
  4. Shrek
  5. The Expendables
  6. Along Came A Spider
  7. Double Jeopardy
  8. Man on Fire
  9. Panic Room
  10. Firewall

A cool, often cold, sound created in the 1970s (thanks Kraftwerk, Bowie, Devo, Moroder, Vangelis, Jarre, and Roxy), synth pop ended up defining the ‘80s with a mix of percolating bloops, sublimated emotions and robotic dance moves. A few US groups got into the act but it was a UK-dominated field and ended up working its way into various genres, from new wave, neuro and post-punk to electro-funk, rap and today’s electro-pop. In our MU Synth Pop playlist, we collect the genre’s defining songs by artists like New Order, Depeche Mode, Duran Duran, Pet Shop Boys and more.

Listen to the MU Synth Pop Playlist.
