I'm living in the Netherlands and all the pre-made Spotify playlists are localised with Dutch artists and bands, which I can totally relate to as I am fully Dutch myself -- but what the guys of Spotify probably didn't think of: not everybody is a fan of Dutch music (hate it!). I find myself skipping A LOT of songs all the time when I want to use the pre-made Spotify playlists (which is the fun of Spotify, right?).
Also, my girlfriend is an American expat who doesn't understand Dutch either and when we're together I find myself skipping Dutch songs even more which does not add much to the music listening experience.
Would have been so much easier if I could just switch off localised content for pre-made playlists in my account settings. If only...!
