There's a chance you're here after a discussion we've had about music. I've decided to write a collection of artists/songs I particularly like. I will try to keep this updated, and feel free to share any of your music with me!

Note: I listen to a lot of music weekly, and am struggling a bit to keep this list updated as I keep discovering new cool artists. Consider this as "Some Music I Recommended in 2021" ;)

Most listened genres

Like a lot of people, I like to listen to a large variety of styles from classical music to tecno. There are however two styles I listen to the most: jazz (especially contemporary jazz) and electronic music (such as future bass).

Most listened artists

Here are the artists I listen to and most recommend. The list is not ordered precisely, but I do keep the artists I like the most on top:


I usually do not like artists who keep making songs in the same style but I definitely have to make an exception for Anomalie. His style of music (Jazztronica) is so unique and fascinating.

Top picks:

Tigran Hamasyan

Armenian pianist with his own very unique variety of styles. His may sound unusual to an occidental ear.

Top picks:

Jesus Molina

Third pianist in a row in this list, Jesus Molina is undoubtably the most skilled in the list. His technique is over the top and he his highly influenced by Oscar Peterson.

Top picks:

Avishai Cohen

Avishai Cohen is an amazing jazz bass player. His trio plays with a lot of different time signatures and polyrithms.

Top picks:

Domi & JD beck

These two are... weird... As of when I'm writing this they haven't released an album yet but have shown their incredible skills on Youtube videos and events.

Top picks:

Jacob Collier

Jacob Collier is now fairly known. He is a very talented instrumentalist, exploring a whole bunch of different genres with some crazy music theory behind. Truly a musical genious. I don't quite like his new stuff (more pop) as much as his old.

Top picks:


Yet another jazz pianist... Hiromi is a Japanese pianist who truly puts her emotions in the music she plays.

Top picks:

Snarky Puppy

The most known contemporary jazz group. I don't really listen to them anymore as their style is pretty repetitive but contains a lot of very unique aspects that influenced a lot of other modern jazz artists.

Top picks:
