[All Platforms][Browse] Exclude remixes when listening to an artist

Status: Case Closed

When listening to artists in certain remix-prone genres you get bombarded with remixes.  Not unusual to listen to the same song remixed several times which is just straight up annoying.  Worse when a chilled artist has a load of remixes (you could just ban them outright).

The idea has been posted in a few different versions but keeps just missing the target 'kudos'.  Lets just pool them together and say that its passed the threshold and add the function.

Filter for anything with remix in the name PLEASE!

My Spotify seems getting contaminated by this Remix-Disease more and more.

Some years ago my Discover Weekly was reasonably okay, but now it is 90% full of waste.

70% of that waste is Remix-Disease.

So a lot of space is wasted in my Discover Weekly.

Space that could be used for real (100% creative) artists otherwise.

 

(I know, my complaint expand the scope of the original post)

Yes, please add an option to block any and all remixes. Tired of getting a Playlist full of unoriginal garbage by non-artists that think they can do better than a real musician when I listen to EDM.

I NEED this. I'm fed up with all these disgusting remixes. I get some people might like them, somehow, but an option to block them all into oblivion is a must.

This issue has been reemerging for the past 5 years and really needs some attention for the Release Radar playlist to stay relevant for users. Most remixes are total rubbish, but I just can't get them out of my algorithm. Please fix this!
