Meet Matteo, a 20 year old Spotify playlist curator from Milan, Italy…
“I was born and raised in Italy, but I am studying at the University of Miami in Florida, US. Even if I don't play professionally soccer anymore, I still love the sport and I am playing in the University team. The playlist 'Pre Partita' represents the evolution of what music I listened to through the years, without losing the energy that it brings when listened to. It was created in 2016 and to this day it still is the only playlist I listen to when I have to work out, train or get ready before a game.”
When & why did you make your playlist?
I played soccer professionally and wanted a playlist to concentrate and to get fired up before a game.
Describe your playlist. Perfect situation(s) for jamming include:
Before a match or a game if you play any sports or when you are training this playlist will give the right boost.
What was the best concert you've ever attended and why? (Include as many details as you'd like: city / venue / when / with whom...)
Ultra Music Festival in Miami.
What kind of music / artists did you grow up listening to?
I listen to any kind of genres. I am a fan of music with no particular preference of taste. Being born in the 90's made me starting listening to Pop, than I switched to House/EDM, I then went back to Rap/Trap and right now I am listening mostly to Techno.
Who are your all-time favorite artists and why?
Rihanna, Katy Perry, David Guetta, Eminem, Kanye are the first I started to listen to and are the ones who marked me the most.
