Meet Jean-Baptiste, a 34 year old Spotify Playlist Curator from Paris, now residing in New-Caledonia.
“I made this playlist "Electro posé" because I like these 2 words together.

And "electro" because there is electronic sounds in every one of the songs in this playlist. I created this playlist first of all for me, to bring together the music I used to like and the songs or artists I discover every month. I'm a new sound addict, I am constantly listening to new music every month. I was really surprised to see that every month more and more people I don't know were following my playlist!
