Chase June Spotify playlist: curated by Yooth
It was about time we curated a Chase Spotify playlist, right? From June on, each month we’ll ask a dj, musician or creative to curate our new playlist with a selection of fresh tracks. Kicking it off is our very own Yooth, aka Ingmar Doumen. He curated a rather tropical selection, topped off with some recent Belgian hip-hop tracks. Perfect warm-up for summer, or cool-down for your study break? You decide! Hit the 'follow' button for a monthly update by your favourite Belgian artists.
