Meet N.O.D., an incredible musician and playlist curator from Sweden.
“Listening to music and choosing some as favorites in the form of playlists is a big part of my life and I have been doing it since as long as I can remember.”
What is the soundtrack to your life?
Mad World by Gary Jules
What’s more important to you? Music; or Lyrics? Why?
Music. Lyrics add a layer of information to the package which sometimes can be unnecessary in my opinion. It is lovely to have good lyrics on a great piece of music. But, still it is complementary to the music and not the core. You can communicate feelings through music without the need of lyrics if you are good at composing.
Favorite artist? Top 5?
Steven Wilson, Thom Yorke, Opeth, Gustavo Santaolalla, Ibrahim Maalouf, Paul Kalkbrenner, Avishai Cohen are my top 5 favorite artists
If you had the chance to interview an artist, who would it be? (Dead or alive) and why?
Steven Wilson. Besides his extreme music production skills, he is one of the few artists I know who writes heavy stuff. Musically, Emotionally and Intellectually. He writes Long, Detailed and Extreme. Each of his songs has tons of small details to think about. He is an amazing songwriter and producer I believe!
Gidge who performed in Gothenburg in May 2019. Gidge is Swedish electronic duo consisting of Ludvig Stolterman and Jonathan Nilsson. They are from Umeå, a lovely town in northern Sweden.
He also has many other amazing playlists which can be found on his profile here: https://open.spotify.com/user/dashnari
