Daft Punk’s Favorites (Guy-Manuel de Homem-Christo)

A hand-picked playlist from Daft Punk member Guy-Manuel de Homem-Christo, this collection of songs offers an interesting glimpse at what’s ticking under the helmet. An eclectic mixture with sly nods to massive pop stars like Drake and cult heroes like The Ramones and Ariel Pink, there’s a depth to the song choices here, and each pick seems carefully juxtaposed within the list.

Kendrick Lamar’s The Making of ‘good kid m.A.A.d. city’

A handpicked selection from Grammy-winning wordsmith Kendrick Lamar, this playlist explores the influences behind his epic debut album, Good Kid M.A.A.D City. It’s a curious look into Kung Fu Kenny’s inspirations, which go deeper than just hip-hop.

Snoop Dogg’s Merry Jane Playlist

Merry Jane is a relaxing set of songs, curated by none other than the D – O – Double G himself. While the famed rapper likely uses this list in less-than-legal settings (in some states, anyway), it’s also just an excellent way to relax at the end of a long day.

This Is: Sir George Martin

This Is: Sir George Martin offers an interesting glimpse into the mind of the recently deceased Beatles mega-producer, showcasing his intense talent for sonic layering and classical-influenced arrangements. Think of this as a history lesson in which the textbook is brilliant music.

This Is: Max Martin

Among the most interesting (and wealthy) music producers in the history of pop, Swedish songsmith Max Martin has lent his sonic palate to virtually every important pop star of the past two decades. This list features many of Martin’s hits, offering an interesting look at his own creative development through the years, as well as a mix of some of the most iconic pop songs from the mid-’90s onward.

This is: Disney

You don’t have to be a little kid to appreciate some Disney movie music (though it definitely helps). Many of us grew up watching the company’s animated musicals — and still hold a soft spot for the songs. Spotify’s This Is: Disney playlist has it all, from classics like Pinocchio to recent hits like Moana and Finding Dory.

Songs to Test Headphones With

The best way to get to know that new amp, receiver, or pair of headphones is to play an assortment of well-mixed music through them — and that’s where Spotify’s Songs To Test Headphones With comes in. A 12-hour playlist of tunes to check out your latest audio gear, this one is packed with excellently produced jams.

Instrumental Hip-Hop

This listener-made playlist of classic hip-hop instrumentals provides just the sort of steady groove you need to focus on the task at hand, without words to distract you. And with classics from J Dilla, Pete Rock, and various other storied producers, it’s also a great way to educate yourself on the sounds of famed beatsmiths.

Family Road Trip

It can be hard to know just what classic jams your children should hear first. This playlist takes care of that issue for you: Hits from the Beatles, Jackson 5, and Van Morrison provide the perfect starting point for your new music listener (or twins!).

Indie Workout

For those who aren’t into Hot 100 hits, it can be hard to find good music to take to the gym, and that’s where the Indie Workout list comes in. These are positive songs with infectious beats — just the kind of thing that you need to get you through the day’s motions, but without the radio sheen that you might be used to hearing through gym speakers. Plus it’s a great way to test out your Mighty Music Player.

Bass Drops

Bassheads, this is for you. This massive playlist, courtesy of Spotify user Kyle Easson, is absolutely dripping with dirty drops that’ll make you jump up and down uncontrollably. It’s not all dubstep and trap music — there’s a fair smattering of hip-hop and pop tunes as well — but it is all bass, all the time.

Future Beats

For those that appreciate avant-garde and experimental music, we present the Future Beats playlist. From artists like Flying Lotus, Flume, and Shlohmo come an assortment of tracks that dare to color outside the lines, utilizing live instrumentation and synthetic sounds alike to create unique, living soundscapes.

Grimy Rap

Not to be confused with Britain’s Grime rap scene. Sometimes, you just want to feel like a supervillain, you know? That’s where the Grimy Rap playlist comes in. Dark, skittering instrumentals provide the backdrop for some of hip-hop’s finest lyricists, each armed with a monotone drawl that will make you want to mean-mug your way down Crenshaw Boulevard.
