the most I love in music is to discover some new artist. (that I haven't heard yet)
When I hear someone new and I liked it, I go through the albums, usually from the oldest to hear the evolution, read the bio on wiki, google the interviews and other information.
At the beginning, spotify helped me to discover pile of absolutely amazing artists/bands, all completely new to me. I was so thrilled. I couldn't wait to Monday for the next Discover weekly.
But I am bit struggling to discover new artists in these days.
Are there any other "new artist freak" or just more adventurous users out there who has some good trick how to discover not heard artist?
I am thinking of some spotify app that goes through my playlists or even listen history and offers me some "similar artists" or just songs from the artists I haven't heard yet.
What I used to use to discover new music, but mostly does not offer me any new artists any more:
- I loved the discover weekly, but my contains only one genre now, but I listen to dozens of different genres and want to hear new artists from them too. Also even within the one genre, it is way off my taste now. I don't even play it any more as I could not remember I heard something interesting new there.
- All the Daily mix do offer only well known, already heard artists
- I really enjoyed the Tastebreakers playlist, but that is once per year, please spotify do it every week or somehow on demand - already posted as an idea https://community.spotify.com/t5/Live-Ideas/All-Platforms-Discover-Tastebreakers-Weekly/idi-p/462711...
- Release radar contains new songs from already known artists by design, so useless for this
- Can't use any of the new releases playlist as I don't like pop, hip-hop and other mainstream
- I discovered a few artists by manually searching for public playlists using google as suggested in https://community.spotify.com/t5/Live-Ideas/Discover-Find-public-Playlists-that-contain-Song-Artist/...
- There is usually no new artists using the "Create Similar Playlist" as that is usually filled by the same bands/artists but different song
Please help me to find a way how to discover new artists, maybe different streaming service has something better for this purpose? Please help, do you have any trick?
