We all need playlists on hand for all sorts of events, as you never know when you might be the one handed DJ responsibility. As students, we need music for a whole load of different scenarios: getting our head down in the library, linking our music to the speakers at pre-drinks, evenings in the gym or even background noise for your house dinner. Spotify is our go-to, not just for our own curated Belushi’s playlists, but for their insane number of awesome playlists that fit any mood. We’ve put together a handful of Spotify playlists that’ll give you exactly the right vibe for your uni days. Check them out.
