Well, for this list I am looking for music that paints some mysterious atmosphere. Intriguing voices or dreamy ones (in female case) and transporting melodies.
8/ What can an artist do in their track submission to your list to ensure that you'll listen to their track?
That they understand the concept behind the playlist - that's it's about strangeness - if they can give me a good explanation as to why the track would fit - I will listen.
