Mert Turan - Music to Curator Interview

1/ So First Off - Tell Us your Name, City and Country and what you currently do for a living?

Hi I'm Mert, I live in Ankara, study Philosophy at Middle East Technical University and work at Radio ODTU 103.1 as production manager. 

2/ Is This Something You Always Wanted To Do?  What Do You Enjoy About It?

I am always madly fond of creating playlists, I guess. As I heard a so damn unique tune, I want to hear more and search alike tunes. It's like an obsession but you know, I can't help it. What I enjoy so much is that I can be where I wanna be unconditionally, when I turn the playlist on. It helps me to get away with stuff especially when I am really fucked up. It's beautiful...

Interview With Van Tastik by Julia Maehner - Music to Conquer Mountains

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!

Ada Bayramoğlu - Music to Curator Interview

1/ So First Off - Tell Us your Name, City and Country and what you currently do for a living?

My name is Ada Bayramoğlu. I live in İstanbul, Turkey. I am a student.

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.

An Interview With Dylan Dunlap by Rodrigo Medrano

Dylan Dunlap released his new EP "Feels Right at Home" almost two months ago. His past EPs and Album shows all the potential of this 21 year old multi-instrumentalist, but more importantly they show his way of singing about life and his way of verbalising himself to the world. This is why I think he's a perfect example of the idea of Music To Open Another Door.
