Meet Pascal Vinzent, 22 years old from Germany, Saarland.
“I am always looking for impulsive songs. Songs which motivate me or songs I have often listend to with my friends while having a good time. Every song in this Playlist is chosen by: "Does this song have a positive and motivating impact on me?". I don't need a deep song text - I need songs which cause a mystic aspiration since the first four beats. This Playlist is all about melodies and stunning beats. There was no Playlist which I could listen to without being forced to skip songs every second time - so I created one.”
What is the soundtrack to your life?
To be honest - there is none. But the whole playlist is a collection of experiences and feelings I came through at the age of 16 to 22
What’s more important to you? Music; or Lyrics? Why?
I'd say Melody. It's always the beat and the melody which make you stay listening to a new song. If the lyrics are beautiful and deep, but if the voice, beat and melody are distressing, it never will be a good song. It's easier to write lyrics for an ingenious melody but not the other way. Some People will never ask themselves what those artists are singing about. For example, you could change whole words in those songs with any effect to the whole composition. But change a chord or the rhythm and everything gets upside-down. Just if I listen to a song for a longer time I start thinking about the lyrics, but it was never the first thing I concentrated on while listening to a new song.
Favorite artist? Top 5?
Volbeat, Rise Against, Linkin Park, The Darkness, Nomy
If you had the chance to interview an artist, who would it be? (Dead or alive) and why?
There is no one. Every artist who takes place in my playlist I'd tell: "You did a great job. Thank You!"
I listened to the Berlin Philharmonic Orchestra in December 2018 - no singing, just classy melodies.
