5 Questions with Tobias van Schneider of Spotify

Name your top five songs that gets your creativity an extra kick?

I’m one of those people who grew up with so much music that I have a hard time recalling any names of songs or artists. But I have a much better answer: All the music that keeps me going I collect & publish in handmade mixtapes at http://www.vanschneider.com/mixtapes

What is the weirdest thing you have seen online recently?

I’d say this: https://vine.co/v/e93tnJuO6El or this: http://bigwilly.style - Weird enough?

What is the favorite part of your job?

That there are no rules - And once someone tries to establish them, I’m heavily interested in breaking them. And sometimes, you get rewarded for just that. How many jobs are there where you can do this?

What is the best advice someone has given you that has helped you in your career?

No one knows better than you. Everything is made up by someone else, so just make up your own thing. I guess this is my personal remix of a lot of advice I’ve gotten in the past.

If you could be any age for a week, what age would you be and why?

I’d say 29 - That’s my current age and I have a full awesome week coming up. And another one right after that, how cool is that?
