Meet Merve, a 25 year old Spotify playlist curator from Mersin, Turkey .
“When I was studying at the university, there were two radios that I listened to most while preparing projects (especially architectural models). One is Joy FM and the other is Power Love. Both played music in similar styles. I wanted to gather the music I listened on these radios.”
What kind of music/artists did you grow up listening to?
Since my childhood, the radio is on at home and that radio always plays Turkish Classical Music. I loved that music and I would also listen to Turkish Pop. But what I liked most was mixing my brother's cassette collection and listening to 80s and 90s music like ABBA, Queen, Michael Jackson, Depeche Mode, Madonna, Pet Shop Boys.
Who are your all-time favorite artists and why?
Scorpions, Queen, The Beatles, Elton John, Leonard Cohen and Edith Piaf. Because their music, feeds my soul, touches my heart and accompanies my emotions. That's why they'll never get old for me.
Name a song (or songs) you have listened to on repeat –
Kevin Johansen - Timing, Labrinth - Jealous, Kooii - We Get Around, Depeche Mode – Freelove, Duran Duran – Save A Prayer, Charlotte Cardin – Dirty Dirty.
