Meet Clifford, a 25-year-old Spotify playlist curator from California.
“I first got into EDM music in college, and I just started compiling all the music I liked into a playlist. As my playlist grew over the years, I found that it became a nice collection of music that could bring me back to a particular time in my life.”
If you had the chance to interview an artist, who would it be?
Avicii. He was truly gifted and his music was deeply impactful to me. May he rest in peace.
Do you play any instruments? If no, which instrument do you wish you could play?
I used to play the clarinet in high school, but no longer do. If I were to learn something now, it would probably be the piano.
Do you have a favorite quote?
"I hated every minute of training, but I said, 'Don't quit. Suffer now and live the rest of your life as a champion.'" - Muhammad Ali
What's more important to you: music or lyrics? Why?
Lyrics. Both are definitely important, but when the lyrics are meaningful and express the emotions of the artist, it creates a window for those listening to connect with the artist. Combined with good music, it just makes the song that much more impactful.
