We've teamed up with AMC's Digital Marketing to create character playlists for the new series 'Halt and Catch Fire'. We put together 20+ song playlists based on each of the show's main characters, and every week AMC will release a new one that is influenced by the events of that particular episode. The playlists can be found on Spotify and will also be featured as part of AMC's second-screen experience, Story Sync.
1983 proved to be an eventful year for the team at Cardiff Electric, whose venture into the PC market has been fraught with double-crosses, romantic trysts, and hiccups of both the technical and legal variety. Now, 1984 is approaching and the team is poised to unleash their Giant onto the market (the same year that Apple will unveil its game-changing Macintosh). To celebrate such a seminal year in the history of personal computers, we put together a "1984 Mixtape" highlighting the hits of that year. While Cardiff’s future may be uncertain, 1984′s place in music history is secure thanks to artists like U2, Depeche Mode, and David Bowie.
