20 yrs of Planet Mu: Best Songs Mix (No Turn Unstoned #265)

(play streaming mp3 archive if you can’t access the play.fm widget)

Planet Mu has consistently been one of my favorite record labels, as many have fallen out of my favor by not continuing to put out amazing releases as Planet Mu has. Most notably they have been a huge supporter of Luke Vibert (one of may main musical men), releasing 3 full lenghth albums with the 4th, Bizarster, out on Oct. 16th. Planet Mu has also been very instrumental in helping to introduce juke / footwork (one of my favorite genres) to the masses.

I’d like to celebrate Planet Mu’s 20th anniversary by creating 2 special mixes. This will be the 1st pair of 2. This time around the focus will be the best songs from the Planet Mu catalog. The top 10 albums mix will follow in the upcoming weeks.

Support Planet Mu by purchasing their 20 years of Planet Mu Compilation or by purchasing one of the albums featured in this mix. Let’s make sure that Planet Mu can continue for another 20 years.

Top 5 Planet Mu Songs (that are not on my top 10 planet mu albums)

  • Punisher by Pinch (2006)
    I didn’t have to debate this at ALL. This is the BEST song that Planet MU has released EVER. After 9 years, this song still blows almost everything else away.
  • My Friends Will Always Say… by FaltyDL (2010)
    The Lauryn Hill sample is brilliant
  • Broken Dubstep by Benga (2007)
    No one can do LFO better
  • Solar by Oriol (2011)
    Lush Heaven
  • Einstein-Rosen Bridge by Venetian Snares (2003)
    Nobody but Venetian Snares could have created this song. How does he do it?

Top 5 Planet Mu Remixes

  • U Don’t Survive (Chrissy Murderbot Remix) by Machinedrum (2012)
    Again, didn’t have to think about this one either. The best remix of Machinedrum ever. Chrissy Murderbot brought D&B back with this one.
  • Muizenberg (Seiji Remix) by John Wizards (2013)
    Beautiful use of piano and pads.
  • Now U Know Tha Deal 4 Real (Chrissy Murderbot Remix) by Machinedrum (2012)
  • Human Meadow (Luke Vibert Remix) by FaltyDL (2005)
    For me, Luke Vibert is Acid. He has finally converted me. I like how he combines acid, dub, and hip-hop in this track as only he can do.
  • Twin Stars (Lone Remix) by The Solar Bears (2010)
    Lone always brings the dreamy!
