Talking to musicians, even only via email, is such a treat, especially when they can offer pleasant things such as humor and real insight. Van Tastik, an American expat living in Europe, offered just that in our brief conversation on the internet. I’ve selected his song “Drag Me to Hell” for the Music to Conquer Mountains playlist (link to song here please). Because the song is just so damn interesting, Spotify even selected him for its Delta Blues Playlist. I wanted to talk to Van Tastik about all that - his songwriting, being an expat and the power of streaming. Check it out!

This was so much fun - Julia from the brilliant Music to Conquer Mountains playlist stopped in for our first Facebook Live Interview. Julia talks about the state of music journalism in Germany, being 8 when MP3s hit the market - Andrew totally lies about his age and we end up in a great discussion on what makes a great track - enjoy...

2/ Is This Something You Always Wanted To Do? What Do You Enjoy About It?
I spend a lot of my time creating personal playlists and I am very happy to finally share them with the world. Before I joined Musicto, my playlists were just for me and my friends. But now, everyone can look up keywords on their laptop and find my playlist. I love that I can reach out to someone very far away from my own house. People trusting my taste of music is what I really enjoy about it.
