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. This 54th edition was made by animation & design studio LWZ. They will speak at Forward Festival Hamburg in April.


LWZ is a design and animation studio based in Vienna, originating from a visuals collective. It was founded in 2014 by Martin Lorenz, Stefan Salcher, Tobias Schererbauer, and Markus Wagner. Since its inception, the studio has concentrated on fostering interaction between animation, graphic design, typography, and illustration. They promote continuous dialogue not only among these disciplines but also between themselves and other creative individuals. They have opened a café named La Piscina within their office space, where they cook and share a daily meal together every day.



This playlist is filled with 47 songs covering nearly 3 hours of enjoyable music. It’s perfect for an after work evening, finding motivation for creativity, or getting ready to go out. Some of the highlights in this playlist are Bibiza, Kerala Dust, Childish Gambino, Kraftklub, Brutalismus 3000, Frittenbude, Jamie XX and many more. Tune in and enjoy the mix of indie, rock, pop and electronic!
