Hello and glad to see you here. Discovering new music of artists from around the world is amazing!

I think in this digital age, a music curator is somehow an e-traveller!
He e-meets artists and hears their stories,
watches their experiments and musical journeys,
helps them reach new fans,

it’s lovely!

Why I curate playlists?

I do this for the love of music. I like to support artists to reach a wider range of audience as I have been struggling with it myself as a musician.

Since childhood I have been a sheer music lover and used to make mixtapes and compilations on CDs, Cassette and VHS tapes and lend them to friends around. As I grew older, I kept going with making music compilations and moved my playlists to audio/video streaming platforms such as Deezer, Spotify and YouTube. During the recent years, I saw a growth of the number of followers and music submissions and I’m really happy to see that near 13 000 people have found them interesting so far. It gave me a sense of responsibility to dig more for new music discoveries for the followers and check the music submissions more often. Lovely! I’m immersed in new music everyday! Thanks for that everyone! 🙂

Besides that, I really love to listen to and pay attention to the details in the music. I love to experience creative and high quality tracks which combine beautiful melodies, true feelings and convincing lyrics with a high level of musicianship that make you think and experience the world from a new perspective. It’s like a daily meditation that I disconnect myself from this crazy world. I just sit in my home studio and focus on a song or album and see what the artist has to say and if I can connect with her/his craft. It’s a routine that I somehow can’t live without.

Take this song as an example. Imagine you are focusing on Retrograde by James Blake and listening through it again and again with a high volume for half an hour and experiencing it for real. How does it feel? Isn’t it a beautiful and creative song that makes you think?

Ojojoj! It amazes me when artists trust themselves, respect their thoughts and ideas, dare to experiment and make something new.

Is there anything artists or followers can do in return?

I do appreciate if you help to keep the independent music alive. Be a good fellow! Support me as well as artists who have their tracks in the playlists in whatever way that works best for you. Come on! You know how you can help if you are an artist and have been going through all the hardships of getting your music heard! These came to my mind just to name a few:

  • Share, Tweet, Post, Follow and Like the Playlists and Social Channels
  • Subscribe to the Newsletter. It will include some hand-picked tracks with a ΞGood StuffΞ badge on them every quarter!

If you want to get in touch, you can reach me here and have a chat. For music submissions take a look at this page.

Mixtapes made for the love
of music. Soon!
