Spotify could be set to change the fabric of house parties forever.
First uncovered by Music Ally, the streaming giant seems to be in the early stages of developing a new auto-mixing feature. An upgrade from previous crossfade and beat-matching tools, the new feature could be a significant move in the advancement of the dance music experience on the platform.
The function is currently in the development stage, so is only available to try out on one public Spotify playlist, “Drum & Bass Fix”. When listening to the playlist, once tracks approach their conclusion, the final seconds are mixed into the next track. This function also works when the playlist is on shuffle.
When asked about the feature by Music Ally, a Spotify spokesman commented, “we are always testing new products and experiences, but have no further news to share at this time.” With little information about the software announced, it is not yet known if or when this auto-mixing function will be phased into other playlists and genres.
We are powered by online music scouting platform, TalentAI. The tool utilises Spotify API data and AI processes to unearth the fastest growing unsigned talent. Whilst the platform features lots of emerging dance artists, users can operate filters including ‘genre’, ‘country of origin’, ‘signed/unsigned’ and more to find talent and tracks that match their brief.
