Meet Ilkay, a 27 year old Spotify playlist curator from Holland…
“I'm a graduate student at the University of Twente. I'm studying Biomedical laboratory researches. Besides my study I also work as an online marketer, officer external affairs and financial employee at a night club. Needless to say I started out as a bartender and worked my way to the top.”
When & why did you make your playlist?
I made my playlist to motivate myself with my workouts prepping for the bodybuilding contests. It was somewhere around July / August.
Describe your playlist. Perfect situation(s) for jamming include:
Motivating, inspiring and energy supplying - it's powerful!
What was the best concert you've ever attended and why? (Include as many details as you'd like: city / venue / when / with whom...)
Kygo is the best concert I've seen ever, and I've seen a lot! Between the Weeknd, Robbie Williams, Maroon 5, Kygo was the real artist that entertained with several artists, piano playing, violin playing and many many more - it was awesome!
What kind of music / artists did you grow up listening to?
A lot. My taste is diverse. I listen to everything that correlates with my mood. Sometimes I like to listen to metal, sometimes hardcore, rock, reggaeton and so on. On moments that I'm working or chilling, I love to listen to EDM tropical house playlists on youtube.
Who are your all-time favorite artists and why?
The Weeknd is in my opinion an awesome artist. Kissland and Trilogy are the most inspiring albums that I enjoy because of the darkness of the lyrics and the dark puns.
