Meet August Åström, a 23 year old from Sweden.
“This playlist started as a personal playlist.”
What music did you listen to growing up as a kid?
A wide variety of genres! Many subgenres to jazz. My taste evolved into Hip-Hop and later on in recent years - electronic. Combined they make up most of what my playlist features today. With that said, I do enjoy some classic rock from time to time.
Do you play an instrument? If no, what instrument would you love to learn?
I play guitar, piano and drums! Would love to learn the sax!
What is your favorite quote?
“Abnormally good or abnormally bad conditions do not last forever” - Benjamin Graham
If you could interview any artist, dead or alive, who would you interview and why?
Gramatik - Such a personal inspiration for music, and an awesome person in general.
What is more important to you, music or lyrics? Why?
I have always been a music person. I guess that is shown in a playlist where most tracks are instrumental. I mainly use music as a complement for work and as such, lyrics can take away the focus from the task at hand.
