Spotify would be the ideal place to host the famous ILM Rough Guides... if people are willing to put in the hard work (and if their catalogue is up to the job). The threads:

The Rough Guide to . . .
The Rough Guide Two...
The Rough Guide Part 3 (and general redux) - 15 tracks max or one CD only
A Rough Guide To ILM Touchstones

And I've just started a Prince album tracks one, but I've made it collaborative, so if anyone wants to add a load of stuff, particularly off all the more recent albums, which I don't know at all, go for it.

Prince LP Trax

I think this is what it could be really good for, collabortaive lists to accompany POX threads or whatever.

I've been re-reading Vahid's proto-kozmigroovers and Jaxon's jazz goes pop jazz goes disco threads and listening to all those records on Spotify.

Really good. I've now become a Spotify subscriber - more out of a sense that I support what they're doing and hope they fully succeed, more than finding the adverts irritating.

As I moaned on the other thread: hasn't scrobbled properly for me (or a shitload of other Mac users) for two weeks now; despite a lengthy thread on Get Satisfaction in which a Spotify chap promised us they'd worked out what the problem was, we're still waiting on the upgrade. Given that it was an (unwanted/un-asked-for/forced-upon-us) upgrade that fucked it in the first place, I've kind of gone off it a bit.

Yeh, I know, wau wau wau, whining about a service that gives me free music, etc ... ach, see the other thread for my semi-feeble justification.

Trϵϵship, Monday, 24 September 2018 17:36 (two months ago) Permalink

This headline is wildly misleading. No data is shared between Ancestry and Spotify, and nothing here does anything with anybody's DNA. Somebody wrote a web thing that lets you manually pick a set of nominal genetic-origin regions (you can pick 1-5 of them from a list of 30-ish), and then blends together song-pools from each of them to make a playlist you can save to your Spotify account. I have no idea where the pools of songs came from, but you can see what's in them pretty easily by picking a single region at a time. They seem to be random collections of artists who are nominally "from" that region, but that includes, e.g., Neneh Cherry as "Sweden".

So while you could reasonably contend that this thing is stupid, I think it's not actually creepy.

I've been trying to whittle down and fine tune this playlist of essential afro-pop, afro-beats and afro-dance for a while now and it still extends beyond 4hrs. Best listened to linearly, it dots about all over space, time and style, but I was concentrating on mood, a bit like if I was constructing a DJ mix. Some absolute bangers on here by the way - really love so much about it.

It's ambient in spirit but not necessarily in genre. Mostly instrumental and droney. It's meant to be listened to as background music, starting arbitrarily from any track. Right now it's 1,045 tracks (not sure whether that includes all the tracks that have been made unavailable in this country since I added them) and about 109.5 hours long, but I'm going to keep adding to it.

The first playlist I made when I signed up for Spotify was the result of a brain dump of all of the 120 Minutes music I could think of. Did not even come close to the amount of music on these. Thanks for sharing.

Here's what have turned out to be my most popular Spotify playlists.
This is an wide-ranging introduction to Greek music with lots of rebetiko, epirotika, nisiotika and demotika.
Here are 8 hours of songs cut at American Studios in Memphis, TN between 66 - 73, mostly with either Chips Moman or Tommy Cogbill behind the board. Lots of southern soul, Dusty, Box Tops, Elvis....
Here are two and a half days worth of Soul Music tracks from the early 70s.
