Yes please add this funcionality. I really, really don't want any Sean Paul, Gavin deGraw or Maroon 5 coming up. It just ruins my moment, whenever, wherever. I'm on a trial subscription, but without functionality like this i will not continue my subscription for there are better services that do.

I totally agree on this case. I pay premium to listen to what I want but the 'promoting' of certain artists is really annoying. I'm not extending my subscription after the summer because Spotify does not care about my favourite music and they tell me what to listen but not vice versa. And this is wrong in modern times when complex algorithms can be created to offer unheard music but after months of listening to jazz, indie, soul, electro I get offered..... Drake. THIS IS A JOKE!

Obviously Spotify don't use any sort of algorithm to match up similar types of music or music liked by people who like the same songs/artists/genres.

 

And I totally agree with the above poster... What is up with this Drake rubbish? It's everywhere on Spotify and I've never listened to it on Spotify and it's nothing like anything I do listen to. 

 

Go home, Spotify. You're drunk.

 

Obviously they make money from playing Drake.

I'm amazed at how poor spotify is at this type of thing, especially given how long it's been  around.

I moved from google music to spotify because the family plan made more sense for my setup.

I've been constantly dissapointed since. Artist radios play the same songs all the time and it is unable to learn from my activity.

Please sort it out or I'll be going back to google music.

Hey Spotify! You should really take care of your customers better than this or you will go the same way as, as, uh, well, don't worry! We will forget your name too! 

(What do we have here? Just another company that stopped innovating and then got driven into the ground by Google)

i used to be able to remove/ block artists that i am against, based on their political or ethnical or cultural bealives, and now I am stuck listening artists who hate my race and there is no button to block them. Why is that Spotify, why you chose to remove that feature. Is that your policy, to support artists who hate people based on their nationality or religious bealives or race ? 

Spotify are you racist ??????!!!! As long as money flow no side is chosen ?

Yup....purely money and greed. Coming from a PAID service this is unacceptable.

This simple request has been around for YEARS and Spotify chooses to ignore their customers.

Your loss.

Today I was listening to Metallica, Dio, Ozzy, and other excellent bands.  At the end of my playlist it began playing music from other artists on its own.  No problem ususally, but to play Ted Nugent is an affront to all the bands above.  Please make a feature to ignore an artist completely.

This is not solved. How hard can it be to program a function to let users block artists and music styles they don't like. Is it about money and artists and rappers who pay to get their music pushed?

Spotify and others are ignoring their users, and I will switch directly to the service who will provide a blocking feature.
