Meet Hayley, 22, Spotify playlist curator from Lund, Sweden...
Created nearly 10 years ago, Hayley has curated over 1,000 songs and counting.
When & why did you create your playlist?
Nine years ago, I was listening through top 100 when Scary Monsters and Nice Sprites by Skrillex started playing. It completely blew my mind. All EDM I had heard up until that point was generic Guetta tunes and 90's techno, not very creative or inspiring stuff. Went home from school, created a playlist containing all the electronic music I knew (10 songs or so) and desperately started looking for more.
What kind of music did you grow up listening to?
I found Muse through Guitar Hero in 2007. I'm still quite a big fangirl.
What was the best concert you’ve ever attended and why?
I saw Avicii on one of his last tours in Sweden. He was showing off his True: Avicii by Avicii album R.I.P. :(
First concert you attended?
Me and my 14 year old friends went to some Metalhead concert in a nearby park. Holy shit it was terrible.
Who are your all-time favorite artists and why?
Muse had a big impact on me because of the way they used to write music. They changed their style in 2009 and sadly got rid of what I found so special in the first place. Deadmau5 has also been releasing cool stuff consistently. The intro to Strobe still gives me shivers.
Name one of your favorite albums of all time -
High Street Creeps by Feed Me. He has visibly been improving ever since his first album back in 2011. I think this is where he peaks. He made 10 unique songs that are all great in their own way while still keeping some of those glitchy characteristic that he's known for.
Name a song you have listened to on repeat -
House of Cards by No Mana. It has such a cool buildup.
