Meet Connor, a 24 year old Spotify playlist curator from Toronto, Canada.
“I made this playlist in 2017. I created it in anticipation of seeing Tchami and Malaa when their No Redemption tour stopped in Toronto. I enjoy making playlists before seeing the artists at shows and events.”
What kind of music/artists did you grow up listening to?
I grew up on alternative rock. Three Days Grace, Billy Talent, Rise Against, and many more. I discovered house music when I was 17 and haven’t stopped listening to it since. Rap has become a big part of my life as well.
Who are your all-time favorite artists and why?
Nipsey Hussle is my all-time favorite artist. It was always about more than just his music for me. I believe in everything he stood for. He was a leader and was well respected in his community. He believed in ownership of his music and stayed independent, he never sold out and built his own empire. Nipsey’s “The Marathon Continues” movement is inspiring and motivates me to bet on myself everyday!
Name a song (or songs) you have listened to on repeat –
Orange Trees - MARINA (Claptone Remix). Racks in the Middle- Nipsey Hussle ft. Roddy Ricch
Any interesting artist(s) you've just started listening to recently?
Recently discovered Claptone and Boris Brejcha after seeing them perform at a music festival. Their sets are amazing.
