Meet Dan, a 36-year-old Spotify playlist curator from Boulder, CO.
“This is the list I throw on when it’s time to get awesome. This playlist is the perfect soundtrack for drifting in empty space, intergalactic dogfights, and tracking bounties.”
What music did you grow up listening to as a young kid?
As a young grom skating and mountain biking in a small town in WV, skate videos were the primary way I learned about the types of music that local radio stations wouldn't play. So, I grew up replaying those videos constantly and listening to punk rock, hip hop, and reggae that was coming out of mid-nineties skate culture.
Name one of your favorite albums of all time?
If I was stuck on a desert island it would have to be either "This is Happening" from LCD Soundsystem or "40oz to Freedom" by Sublime. They both resemble my tastes with an eclectic sound based in punk/garage roots.
Do you have a hidden talent?
I am exceptionally great at failing, dusting myself off, and getting back in the game with a good attitude. It pays off in life, games, climbing, skiing, and mountain biking; my primary hobbies.
What is your favorite quote?
