SOUNDS VIA SAM

I've been making playlists since 'making playlists' meant burning CDs and passing them out to friends in middle school. I remember this mp3 player I had that could only fit 12 songs on it and took like 30 minutes to update. I made a new 12 track playlist every morning, it was the dopest shit ever at the time. I've always loved the idea of improving people's experiences by soundtracking them, and music curation has been like second nature ever since. Nowadays, in addition to my own playlists, I also curate music for Coachella Music Festival and Goldenvoice.

My playlists are focused on helping people discover new music. Although the algorithms are getting really good at recommending music, I still believe in the power of human curation. Anyway, I call my playlist-making efforts, 'Sounds via Sam Schoonover'. I update them almost every day with the very most recent tunes hitting the airwaves. Thanks for listening.
