Meet Benedikt, a 25 year old Spotify playlist curator from Germany.
“I never thought anyone would relate to my feelings.Now I have people from around the world reaching out and my followers keep on growing”
Why did you make your playlist?
I have always liked Spanish music: I love how it makes you want to dance and forget everything for a moment. So, I created a playlist and added songs that I personally liked. After a while I realized by accident that a thousand people were following my playlist and was more than surprised. Since then I have been working on keeping it updated and enjoyed sharing with you the music I love: the hottest Latin songs of the moment (mostly, but not limited to Pop, Reggaeton and Electronic).
Who is you favorite artist?
My music taste is really diverse, so it's difficult to decide on only one. Might be CNCO, Hardwell, Christian Nodal or Panteón Rococó.
Best concert you've ever been to?
Panteón Rococó at Chiemsee Summer Festival 2015 in Germany. I did not know them before and they only played at a side stage, but I still decided to check them out. They made a really great show and we danced all night to their music.
Do you play any instruments? If not is there one you would like to learn?
I used to play guitar for a few years and would like to start playing again.
What artist (dead or alive) had the biggest impact on your life?
Juanes, without a doubt. When I was a child, I loved singing his songs, even though I did not understand a word. He is probably the reason why I started to like this kind of music, which is not the obvious choice if you live in the German countryside. Since then he has continued to be one of the top Latin artists and I was more than happy to finally see him live last year.
