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).
