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.

Thanks! I also realized that you could search "label:whatever" and got some great results that way, especially for dance music (for example, label:"paper recordings" or label:!k7).

schwantz, Thursday, 13 June 2013 16:40 (1 year ago) Permalink

Yeah it's useful. What I'd really like is to be able to subscribe to a label and get updates whenever it puts out something new/

high inerja (seandalai), Thursday, 13 June 2013 16:44 (1 year ago) Permalink

Labels should maintain a playlist! For the big guys, it would be crazy-unwieldy, but for the smaller labels, it would make a ton of sense.

schwantz, Thursday, 13 June 2013 17:16 (1 year ago) Permalink

Also a bunch of labels seem to add releases a few weeks after they're in the shops, at which point I've forgotten that I need to look out for them.

high inerja (seandalai), Thursday, 13 June 2013 17:35 (1 year ago) Permalink

Now what I want out of Spotify is smart playlists, or live search lists or something, where I could store a search query as a playlist, and it would get updated whenever there were new tracks that matched my query. Could that be done with an app, maybe?

schwantz, Wednesday, 19 June 2013 15:25 (1 year ago) Permalink

I would love to be able to play a playlist without opening it first. I have one huge playlist that has to open and load thousands of tracks before it can play which takes about 5 minutes or more, I have to imagine there's a more efficient way for this to work.

I'll keep adding some more, mainly hip hop I think which also works well for running but need to test them first.

Thanks! I tried several of those random 'workout' playlists but none of them kept a strict 120/140 bpm tempo that I need for running so I decided to just use my ipod and skip over and over again until I bumped into songs that I could actually run to... Theres over 10,000 songs in my collection so there's hours I left out but I'll keep updating.

Also there's some less 'modern' songs which make for excellent running mates but are not available in spotify. Off the top of my head:

Neu! - Isi (140 BPM if I'm not mistaken, also Fur Immer and Hallogallo work and around the same tempo)
Human League - Rock N Roll 7" version (135 bpm)

There's a particularly long hill on my bike ride home and I usually cue up the Underworld mix of Orbita -l Lush. It's a great 'journey' song and always gets me moving.

That's a great one and at first peek it sounds like it's around 130 bpm?

Moka, Thursday, 9 October 2014 03:59 (2 weeks ago) Permalink

Did the 120/140 today. Thanks!
