Playlist Series on Spotify

Playlist Series on Spotify

Playlisting started humble as an exercise to grow my music vocabulary. Since then, it’s evolved into the sprawling collection of music you see today. Some lists were built to suit a range of moods and activities, others to help you explore different regions of music. All were lovingly curated and feature some phenomenal talent.

These lists are constantly growing (and shrinking) so be sure to follow your favourites and check back often. Enjoy and thank you for listening!
