Meet The Curator: Mert Turan

Mert Turan - musicto Playlist Curator

I was born on the day "Evil Empire" album by Rage Against the Machine was released and I brought those lucky bastards 3 Grammy nominations. I live in Ankara, Turkey and study Philosophy at Middle East Technical University. I have worked professionally in the music industry for more than 4 years, specializing in studio recording, sound editing and mixing. I previously worked for musicto both as an intern and a curator. During my internship with musicto I gained valuable experience on the music business, social media and community management. I love being a part of this community.

Night rides, cheap motels, gas stations, low-key parties, take away drinks, complex relationships, suburban heroes, suppressed feelings… This list is for those who reject spending the night home alone. For those who are labeled as outsiders and misfits. I’ll be delivering night time stories not bedtime stories. Be careful you never know what you’re going to hear. The purpose of this list is to find the secret places where the party and the booze taste better.

This is not a genre-based playlist but it’s safe to say that alternative R&B and hip hop will dominate the sound. I love the combination of hot beats with solid rap bars and outstanding lyrics. I want this list to be something so provocative that people feel the energy and react. That’s the thing I seek for the most.
