When Spotify launched on X1, the first thing I did (after checking it out myself), was reach out to Comcasters around Oregon/SW Washington to see what they’re listening to. We have an amazing workforce that’s diverse for so many reasons, including music taste. Listen to the playlists below, maybe you’ll be inspired to create your own.

Amidou Diop

Africa is the Future: Amidou Diop’s Playlist

A customer account supervisor in Beaverton, Amidou Diop didn’t have to give his favorite playlist a moment’s thought. His Afro-Futurism mix already has thousands of followers on Spotify and is updated weekly.

“I’m from Senegal and I wanted to share my passion for African music, especially artists that aren’t well known,” said Diop. “The playlist started as a way to share music that is on top of the charts made by Africans.”

Matt Quantz

Matt Quantz’s 80’s Mix Tape

Although our Vice President of Sales and Marketing takes a selfie in true millennial fashion, Matt Quantz has perfected his 1980’s playlist. From hard rock to love ballads, Matt’s playlist is only missing a perm (and so is Matt).

Ace Stardust

Ace Stardust and Friends

COVID-19 is keeping us from enjoying live music, so listening to our favorite local bands on Spotify is a must-do. Two out of three members of Ace Stardust, an alt rock trio in Albany, Oregon are Comcasters. You can find retail associates Cody Warren and AJ Kilgore at the Corvallis Xfinity Store.

“We use our music as a way to discuss tough topics,” explained Cody. “We use this imaginary character, Ace Stardust, and we talk about things from his perspective.” They’ve recently released an EP talking about mental health and relationships. Their playlist includes those songs, as well as a handful from their favorite artists.
