Sometimes I look for new things on Spotify as they have good playlists. I was looking for a jazz morning playlist and all the ones I found had “fake” musicians. They were like names out of an AI names generator. Or group names like Italian Cafe Trio. The problem is not only on Spotify but it’s worse there. I thought Spotify stopped doing that but clearly not.
In the positive direction, I go to Mixcloud and individual people curate shows of real music, real musicians, trying to get a break.
On the Mixcloud front, this kind of discovery reminded me of this post I made while back. But given Roon doesn’t even support Mixcloud, let alone allow you to link though from a track in a Mixcloud stream, this is nothing but a pipe dream in my imagination
But I agree Mixcloud is a great source of discovering new music, these are a few of my favourites for everyday listening.
