Hey there! 👋

You are receiving this newsletter because you are subscribed to the “25 on 25” music playlist on Spotify, where I curate a playlist of music recommendations on the 25th of every month! If you are new here, you were welcome!

Today marks the 3 year anniversary date of the first month I decided to create this monthly series of curated music playlists. What started as just an experiment for myself and an opportunity for me to challenge the algorithmic music gods of Spotify, has blossomed into a passion project that allows me to tell stories, create auditory narratives, and convey complex emotions through my playlists.

I am hoping to spread the love to more people, hence the creation of a monthly newsletter to accompany the playlist. I’ve heard newsletters can make anything into more of an "official" thing. Consider this an official welcome to “25 to 25” and thank you for being here with me!

Theme of this Month:
🌞 Sun Things to Look Forward To

It's a weird time to be listening to music right now with all that's going on around us. In fact, all the data shows that the amount of music streaming activity has been declining since the pandemic started, but I'm still here with a list of hand-selected songs to remind you of the important things: to stay optimistic about what's ahead of us and hold on dear to all the warm and beautiful things we still look forward to.

Since this is the first time I'm sharing my playlist via a newsletter, I want to use the opportunity re-introduce what it's all about and give you a taste of the music that gets featured. This playlist wouldn't just be like any other playlists you follow; it will always contain 25 songs on the 25th of every month and each of them are curated to be listened in order and would always revolve around a central theme: a mood, a pun, a imagery, or even a story. You will always expect to hear more than one genre of music. Finally, I will always end with a classical song that I love because, you know, to stay classy.

This month is a smorgasbord of music genres that I like the most and often feature the most: from indie pop to vapor soul,electronic bangers to modern rock tracks, and from synthy chillwave vibes to minimal neoclassical soundscapes, the playlist is here to get you out of your funk, out of your seat, and to your happy place.


Listen now!

I hope you enjoyed this!

I'll be back next month on the 25th with a newly curated playlist on Spotify. If you're getting value out of this newsletter consider sharing it on Twitter! sharing it on Twitter!
