Every month, the Forward Magazine brings you a selection of musical gems hand-picked by friends, musicians, speakers of the Forward Festival, and many more. The 36th edition was collected by type designers Grilli Type, who will be joining the Forward Online Festival in March 2022.


Between Swiss rationality and lightheartedness: Type Foundry Grilli Type creates fonts with character and type that conveys meaning beyond the words it spells out. The creators at GT run a type foundry but are at heart graphic designers and all share the love for impactful typefaces. GT not only stands for great type and for grandly impacting the scene but also for great taste in music.



For the newest Press Forward edition, Grilli Type put their brains from all their locations around the globe together and created not only a playlist but an oeuvre of electronic music. The hand-picked gems range from minimal techno and Acid Arab to deep house bangers. Disclosure, Bon Iver, Kerri Chandler, or DJ Koze are all amongst Grilli type’s favorites, and of course, a little Beethoven never killed anybody. The playlist catches you within seconds and takes you on a five-hour journey through musical wonderland. Get ready for traveling through!
