Meet Taylor, a 22 year old Spotify playlist curator and founder of SoundandNoize from Montreal..
Kazbah is in collaborate with Paso Doble, Nii Tii & Tebra. These artists have so much talent. Paso and Nii are both incredible Afro-house artists and Tebra brings soemthing different to the table : oriental house. Together, the playlists mixes different sub-genres which is exactly the vibe i'm going for!

 

Tell me a little about yourself - Do you make music? Why do you love music? 

I am the owner and founder of SoundandNoize.com - an online publication centred towards the underground dance music scene. At SoundandNoize, we host events in Montreal, Miami and New York City. We conduct interviews, discover up coming talent and curate monthly Spotify playlists.

With just 4 years of this brand, we've collaborated with Grammy-nominated artists. Furthermore, we have many new projects in the making and we are launching a new division coming within the next two months. However, I do not produce music. SoundandNoize, is a side hustle. I am a full time real-estate agent here in Montreal.

Music is my passion as to why I opened up a company regarding my interests. At a young age, my sisters used to listen to Benny Benassi, Steve Aoki, Basshunter to name a few. I remember at 11 years old, i would host "chillings" at my house and throw mini house parties listening to Swedish house Mafia back in the days. Throughout time, my taste developed and slowly transitioned into deep house.

Why did you make this playlist? 
Every month, I like to stay in theme of what's going on in the music industry. For example, Scorpios in Mykonos is a trendy supper club which books a lot of the artists up my ally. After hearing the music played at that venue, I got inspired and decided to create a playlists.
After Sound Tulum, which is a month full of events, I got inspired and decided to create two playlists called "Mayan Spirits" and "Zero" after Damian Lazarus Day Zero event.
However, Burning Man just finished on Monday. There are different camps at the Playa. I have a lot of friends who stayed in The Kazbah. That's where I got my inspiration from. To mention, Kazbah means city in North Africa. I am half Moroccan, so I figured it would be a cool name for this months edition.
