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.

Well let's just hope they stay afloat so this isn't all in vain. And that they add more obscuro '80s and '90s stuff to the catalogue or these will remain incomplete:

ILM Rough Guide to the Bo Diddley Beat
ILM Rough Guide to Vocoders etc
ILM Rough Guide to Electro (all 6 tracks)

Helpful (perhaps obvious) hint: the no. of tracks returned in a search list is limited, you may get more if you click through to the artist. And you can search for/jump to tracks there just by typing the start of the name.

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.

yeah i'm subscribing too now. gotta support the good service.

having said that it's just stopped scrobbling for some reason...

Hard House SugBanton (blueski), Sunday, 15 March 2009 20:13 (5 years ago) Permalink

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.

friend and i were talking about how jawbreaker's "i love you so much its killing us both" and against me!'s new "unconditional love" almost seemed to be about characters in conversation with each other. so we both built playlists off the notion of these two characters having this ongoing dialogue. here's mine.

Treeship, Thursday, 9 October 2014 03:05 (2 months ago) Permalink

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.

Moka, Thursday, 9 October 2014 03:31 (2 months ago) Permalink

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)

Moka, Thursday, 9 October 2014 03:38 (2 months ago) Permalink

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.

brotherlovesdub, Thursday, 9 October 2014 03:57 (2 months ago) Permalink

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

I guess I'll share them all and tell you a bit about each see if any piques your interest, including the first opening acts of each playlist so you can get a better reference of what you can expect:

Bamboojazz: http://open.spotify.com/user/moteldemoka/playlist/3Qu6DZBfoTOP8AF1o4h2D3
I was going for afrolatin-tinged (specially Brazilian influenced) jazz on this one.
Opening artists: Yusef Lateef, Nina Simone, Kenny Burrel, Dorothy Ashby, Laurindo Almeida.

Black Devil Disco: http://open.spotify.com/user/moteldemoka/playlist/1Qb69xXYizdbuCJSWTBufi
Modern (and not so modern) disco and house. I was initially going for a playlist filled with trendy italodisco but no more.
Opening artists: Black Devil Disco, Chromatics, Newworldaquarium, Lindstrom & Prins Thomas.

Berlinette: http://open.spotify.com/user/moteldemoka/playlist/3gGdcbukUvkPtkiQ1nfgLi
German minimal. I like to listen to this one while driving.
Opening artists: Christian Kleine, Zorn, Isan, Fujiya & Miyagi, Quarks.

Boombox: http://open.spotify.com/user/moteldemoka/playlist/2Tn7HkvxvdIoMgSAV9YVN5
Not a very creative title. I started this for a friend who wanted some breaks for her dancing practices. I mostly use it to test soundsystems.
Opening artists: Ghislain Porter, Jimmy Edgar, Jamie Lidell, Junior Boys, Feadz.

Colette: http://open.spotify.com/user/moteldemoka/playlist/2S4JDwyn1VVosCsFCasEYB
Another one for a friend. She has a clothing store and wanted a 'fashionista' sort of playlist. I went with a mix electro, new wave, punk-funk and postpunk.
Opening artists: Nash the Slash, Tevo Howard, Taxi Girl, ESG, The Fall.

CosmoBalearis: http://open.spotify.com/user/moteldemoka/playlist/6NmTWLOGFx8QDm77dztrsf
This one is a huge mix of psychedelic folk, Kosmische, Balearic and Progressive rock. Lots of obscure tracks which I was surprised to find on Spotify.
Opening artists: Antenna, Barefoot Jerry, Barton Smith, Isis.

Countryfunk Swampblues: http://open.spotify.com/user/moteldemoka/playlist/1A5LQOLAUa3TK6ChYLGeRw
Just as the title says. The swampy, seedy type of country and blues with a dash of funk here and there.
Opening artists: 7 Walkers, Al Green, Amos Milburn, Anthony Hamilton.

Favela Chic: http://open.spotify.com/user/moteldemoka/playlist/4qmpSh4QgfFUnxVthPbGfU
I think this is my most popular playlist? It's all over the place... I guess the concept behind it is tropical party. Cumbia, Bossa, Salsa, Samba, Chicha, Reggae, latin funk.
Opening artists: Las 4 Monedas, TNT Band, Joao Donato, Ray & His Court, Los Destellos.

There's more but I had to leave! Will post them later!

Moka, Thursday, 6 November 2014 02:04 (1 month ago) Permalink

Ok, here's the rest!

Living Room Raverhttp://open.spotify.com/user/moteldemoka/playlist/2ihkhrShinnYh4xoJDugQD
Similar to Berlinette but more pop oriented, think Morr, Monika and those sort of music labels. I usually play this sort of music when doing house chores.
Opening artists: Schlammpeitziger, Young Marble Giants, Other's People Children, Stereolab, Machine Translations.

Lunar Baedeker and Time Tableshttp://open.spotify.com/user/moteldemoka/playlist/5uxIDEAndW1f3mx5OA4w6j
This one isn't as neatly organized as I want to but it still functions as a playlist. The idea is to have solo piano pieces sandwiched between classical music, but I still need to work the mood here and there. Treat this one as an early sketch.
Opening artists: Aphex Twin, Radicalfashion, Glass & Uakti, Gonzales, Anouar Brahem.

Dustygrooves and Soulsideshttp://open.spotify.com/user/moteldemoka/playlist/141o0XFGQFp8sUftzTss18
Some of my favorite funk and soul songs. I need to update it, there's many songs I want to add but I always get lazy. Will clean and update some time in the following weeks.
Opening artists: Little Ann, The Five Stairsteps, Sugar Pie de Santo, Mayer Hawthorne, Lou Bond.

Graduation Goggles (circa '98)http://open.spotify.com/user/moteldemoka/playlist/6fmrfm7pBhau6Z059QR1xn
This is a personal playlist, some of these make me feel ashamed since I like them by mere nostalgia and I can't be sincere on their quality.... this is comprised of music from mixtapes I had from 1998-2000 when I was 13-15 years old (and similar sounding music from other years that fits in here and 15 year old me would have loved).
Opening artists: Modest Mouse, From Bubblegum to Sky, Guided by Voices, the Aislers Set, Sparklehorse.

In A Beautiful Place Out in the Countryhttp://open.spotify.com/user/moteldemoka/playlist/7KwlC2e6gjmlZeGRGYsCci
This is for a friend who loves Boards of Canada and wanted me to pass some similar sounding artists and copycats.
Opening artists: Ten and Tracer, Black Moth Super Rainbow, Rykard, Bibio, Miles Tilmann.

KodoVeranohttp://open.spotify.com/user/moteldemoka/playlist/0djbUjaP9EMLypTY5WBVSB
Similar to CosmoBalearis but pop orientated. Lots of 'Balearica' and Soft Psychedelia. Personally speaking, I relate it strongly to the summer I lived in Barcelona, so again I'm not sure how well it holds without the memories attached. I think it's an awesome summer playlist but some of you might hate it.
Opening artists: Tony Joe White, Air France, Honey is Cool, Mock & Toof, Fritz Kalkbrenner.

My Blood is Clean: Fuck Your Zen Gardenhttp://open.spotify.com/user/moteldemoka/playlist/3eYcY3hV3uBAPO7WstyGz7
Psychedelic Folk, African folk, Gamelan, Ambient, Minimalism. This is a really old playlist so I can't quite remember what was the idea behind it... it's my response to meditative and new age music, I guess. Lots of beautiful songs in here when you're in the mood. Need to update.
Opening artists: Stella Chiweshe, David Darling and the Wulu Bunun, Scott Tuma, Gojogo, Arvo Part.

Premiers Symptomeshttp://open.spotify.com/user/moteldemoka/playlist/25TbWdFJNXYsuXLm14MwLk
I guess this is my idea of romantic music. Smokey, melancholic, the right amount of schmaltzy. Its heartbroken music half of the time so don't expect it to work for the sexy times, they might work if you're looking for a noir setting, though.
Opening artists: Conjoint, Deus, Patrick Watson, Hope Sandoval, The Box Tops.

Thank you! I never get any feedback on these so if there's something you'd recommend me to add or remove in any of these I'll be happy to hear it.

I've been listening to the cosmobalearic one and loving it, bravo Moka!

A while ago, I noticed that there were no old-fashioned gospel playlists, so I made one because I love this stuff.

If you're into roots music, you'll love these albums. Very catchy, soulful stuff.
