A mental model for sharing music.
Part of my curating process goes something like this👇
If this then that. The thinking behind this is, “If you like this
<track, album, artist or playlist> then I might have other similar stuff you’ll enjoy”
And that means you get to explore more music that you could enjoy. That’s why I like to ask what you’re listening to.
It's also a method of programming DJ sets. You can go into a set with a theme such as:
- Deep house
- Ambient techno
- Music to fall asleep to
And so on. But even with a theme, there needs to be an element of variability in your tracklist.
See inspo for good examples of this.
