Once a month Mishaal and I release a new Blandbeat: a pop music playlist on Spotify filled with our favorite tracks of the moment.
THE ACADEMIC REASON
Mishaal and I have always been big fans of pop music, but we didn't have a way to catalogue and share it. We had both made the switch to Spotify, but in that move we left our iTunes libraries behind. Fed up, we created a collaborative Spotify playlist in June 2016. Fast forward ~2 years and 18 playlists later, and we've got ourselves a side hustle.
The fun reason
We love music. Sadly we've never been very good at making it, hence the name "blandbeats." These playlists are the closest we'll get to pop recognition.
