Meet Kyzen Ekstrom, a 22 year old Spotify playlist curator from Iowa.





Name one of your favorite albums of all time?

Flobots Survival Story. I'm weak for meaningful lyrics.

What is the best concert you’ve ever been to and why?

Lazerfest 2010, it was my first ever concert, and I was a tiny 12 year old ready to rock out to my favorite "hardcore" rock.

If you were a singer, what current living artist would you like to collaborate with?

Adam Young. Everyone knows Owl City, but his other projects are so interesting, too. He really knows how to layer sounds, and I always want music with a punch or a crunch in it. Plus midwesterners have to stick together.

What artist, dead or alive, who would you interview and why?

Elton John. Rocketman was such a life changing movie for me as young queer person, and I'm really into his music now.

What is the last song you listened to?

I have a lot of pandora stations I switch between, so I'm not really sure. Something that sounds like pumped up kicks apparently!
