Playlist Series by Jeremy Lim

Introducing the Playlist Series on Spotify

Twelve months ago, I started a deep dive into my Spotify account to analyze and help cement my tastes. I had no idea it would balloon into a series of over 20 playlists. I'm happy to say that -finally-, the collection is refined enough to share as a whole and kick off the introduction of my new branding. From meandering piano ballads to chair-busting bangers and beyond, I hope you find something you love in...

Taking those sounds home, I cleaned...
