While working on my genre playlists I frequently found songs about different countries or cities. This somewhat triggered my passion for collecting and I started to save these songs in country-playlists. I decided to publish them as soon as I collected 10 songs for a country (or – from there on – 10 new songs). I am not actively searching for songs, e.g. by searching a specific country within Spotify. That would be too boring. Instead, I only collect them if I come across them in the wild.
Since I listened to a lot of French music in the last few weeks it was not surprising that France is the first country with 10 songs:
Start: 13th April 2022 Finish: 16th April 2022 Duration of Playlist Set Up: 4 days Number of Albums: 95 Number of EPs: 100 Number of Songs: 1,779 Length: 122 hours, 11 minutes
This didn’t turn turn out as I expected AT ALL. If you had asked me about 2 weeks ago what I think about Brostep the genre would have easily ended up in the top 5 genres I liked the least. I would have gotten horrible flashbacks to the Skrillex hype around 2011. Well, to be honest there are a lot of releases that I wouldn’t listen to voluntarily for more than 5 minutes but Brostep did surprise me with a lot of clever and catchy releases as well – mostly EPs. I used to love Dubstep. It was pretty much the soundtrack to all parties I attended when I was about 18 years old. And I hated Brostep for what it made out of the genre. BUT I’m kind of at peace with Brostep anno 2022. It’s a nice evolution of Dubstep with EDM elements and has a modern twist to it. The release I liked the most: „Cyber Whale EP“ by Eliminate.
