Makulu Music is a community of like-minded people that appreciate and share good music. Our team of curators spend countless hours each week doing what they love most – finding new, amazing, and “non-mainstream” music. (You won’t find any Justin Bieber here, sorry).

Current music technology is incredible. You have access to just about every song ever written, available for you at your fingertips. But this also makes it difficult, where do you begin?

  • Create a FREE Makulu Music account with your email address.
  • We send you one email a week with a link to an Apple Music playlist that we’ve curated.
  • Simply add it to your Apple Music profile and you’re good to go.
  • Listen, on your phone, in the car, on your computer or your tablet.


Makulu Music was born after many discussions and many beers, on many beaches, in many countries around the world between Gareth and Simon, who were looking for a way to connect people through music.

Simon (I used to be a DJ) Lawrence, has a musical taste that matches his personality – very slow and laid back. For no apparent reason when he is supposed to be finding new music he keeps returning to listening to Muse.


Gareth (one day I’ll be a DJ) Pickering’s music tastes ranges from minimal, downtempo electro to some awkwardly hard house to chill or even jazz. Also matching his personality, his taste in music can be described as – “lovely”.

Why not apply to become a curator?

  • Are you mad about music?
  • Does a playlist feel like a journey to you?
  • Do you like the type of music that we feature on this site?

Email us an Apple Music playlist of  20 songs to listen to. You could be the next curator on the Makulu Music team! (Please review our guidelines before you send us your list).

(Please only email us the share link of the Apple Music playlist that you want to submit, and NOT a track list in any other format).


For Businesses

Do you run a business that engages with the public?

  • A hotel

  • Restaurant

  • Coffee shop

  • Retail store

The music (or lack of music) that you play in your store or workplace has a huge subconscious effect on the ambience and overall feel of your establishment.

How a location “feels” and how your brand is represented to your clients are largely impacted by the acoustics that clients experience in your businesses’ space.

Our curation team will spend time understanding your brand and the mood you are looking to create and develop a custom music experience for your business. Our customised playlists are updated and sent to you each month so that you have the peace of mind that your clients experience the mood of your establishment the way that you envision it.

Give us some information about your business below so that we can come back to you with a plan to enhance your brand through music.
