Meet Gabriel, a 23 year old Spotify playlist curator from Mexico…
“ 'People in your life come and go but the music always stays.' - Daft Punk. I study Architecture, so I spend most of my nights up. That’s why I need music to be my partner, otherwise I’d be bored to death. I also illustrate, so I use music to inspire me. I translate sounds into visual content - music is my muse man.”


When & why did you make your playlist?

I did it because in my last job they used to play horrible music so in order to change that I created s u u n s - a more modern and relevant playlist.

I would love to listen to this playlist while hitting the road or under the rain with my girl.

What kind of music / artists did you grow up listening to?

Justice, MGMT, Daft Punk, and Toro y Moi.


Who are your all-time favorite artists and why?

Justice, Toro y Moi, Blood Orange, Paradis, FKJ, MGMT, Little Dragon, Gorillaz on Plastic Beach, Bill Evans, and Herbie Hancock.
