Spotify Saturdays with Seth Lui

Here at Hype & Stuff, we believe that one’s music taste says a lot about them, and we’re more than curious to find out the top 5 soundtracks that make up one’s life. This week, we speak to Seth Lui, founder of and, for his top Spotify picks.

If it wasn’t clear before, Seth is my boss. And those who know him, will know that he’s a man of very few words. Seth often spends his day hard at work behind his laptop, ever so focused as he juggles the weight of the company in his hands. Getting to know Seth on a musical level was interesting to me because his music and podcast preferences spoke volumes, a stark contrast to an otherwise quiet day in the office with him by our side.

Tell us your name, and how you’d introduce yourself to someone whom you’re meeting for the first time.
Seth Lui.
