This is why Spotify et al should leave it to independents to curate playlists ... like us.

Larry Wilcox's curator insight, August 21, 2016 6:43 PM

Oh, WOW! This is very interesting, I never know of a such thing as "Playlist Payola". Although it's very convincing. It seems as if it is ran by a Mob or something. This seem to be a way to control artist and get them to sign on to a record and if they choose not to than there career would not go anywhere. The fact that it is stated that a host/DJ was injured because he choose one to share the information is what has me leaning toward Mob or Gang. If a artist was welling to sign with the company for exposure that would be a great was is to sign with a company that controls the air. Although if you are trying to finding your way on your won this could be a bad idea. Understanding what you want to accomplish will be the foundation/Blue Print of your succes.

Last.fm – the Blog · Did Someone Say On Demand? | Kill The Record Industry | Scoop.it

We’ve teamed up with Spotify to bring their entire catalogue, on demand, to the world’s leading music recommendation service. Whether it be your own profile page, artist pages or album pages – if Spotify has it, you can play it and control it on Last.fm via the Spotify playbar at the bottom of the screen. Using your Spotify account (premium or free) you can listen to any track simply by pressing the play button. This will load all tracks on a Last.fm page as a playlist in Spotify.

Pierre Priot's insight:

Now Spotify is taking over a streaming service holy grail:  Last.fm user profiling expertise along with its world leading scrobbling data.

 

To make it simple: if someone knows what you're playing and you'll be playing next, that Last.fm. Spotify had to team up with Last.fm before Deezer or another service cut a closer deal.
