I have a bunch of Steppers' Sets, I'll post the links as I work through them. This one in particular was the perfect set for a warm urban afternoon.

re: I have no idea who Brian Askrud is, but he builds a playlist every year of new/current music in multiple genres (no metal or country, really) and it's gargantuan: http://open.spotify.com/user/baskrud/playlist/1e6dqkAfmZzRBrQj7hg915

Brian Askrud - Spotify user profilehttps://open.spotify.com/user/baskrud
Brian Askrud must be the most hyper organized NON spotify employee on Spotify when it comes to new release playlists.
I notice that he has been snapped up by Sony Music (from previously working in a sector completely unrelated to music)
Head of Playlist Strategy / EditorSony Music EntertainmentJanuary 2016 – Present (2 months)Stockholm, Sweden
Ecommerce Project Manager / Product OwnerOriflame CosmeticsAugust 2012 – January 2016 (3 years 6 months)Stockholm, Sweden
He make be working for Sony now but is still adding independent artists and other (non sony) major labels artists to his personal account playlists.
Based in Stockholm i am surprised that he didn't end up at Spotify.
Who Owns the Editorial Voice on Spotify?http://www.newslangmedia.com/major-label-curation-brands-who-owns-the-editorial-voice-on-spotify/
Sony’s curation brand Filtr has 3.6m followers globally across 48 profiles, the vast majority of which are localised by country, but a handful of which relate to catalogue type (e.g. Filtr Legacy) or playlist theme type (e.g Filtr Workout). Add to that a further 285k followers to profiles branded either Sony or sub-labels such as Columbia, RCA and Epic, and in total that’s about 3.9m Sony/Filtr profile followers.

Oh be still my melancholy heart, trip-hop is still going?
It's like 1997 never died.

John Corbett (not the actor), who's been in the art and music worlds in Chicago and has one of the largest record collections of anyone I know, started making monthly mixes during lockdown, each with its own theme. Lots of good playlists.
Also, oddly, The Row's monthly playlists have a lot of deep cuts by familiar names, and consistent all around.

This thread is such a great resource.
I just discovered that a bot on Reddit makes playlists out of the most popular contributions from each music subreddit.
I haven't looked at them all, but I am sure that the post-punk subreddit is great.
Just search "r/" and you will find a lot of playlists.
Here is the link to the one for "r/goth":
