[Discover] Option to filter 'remixes' and 'instrumental' version of past recommendations

Hi there,

 

I'd very much like to suggest implementing an improvement to the Discover Weekly feature.

I listen to a very select amount of songs in a week, including ones from my Discover Weekly playlist.

 

I find that when the algorithm is 'improving' upon itself it starts to suggest a lot of remixes and instrumental versions of the same songs.

 

Could you please build an option to filter out songs that are remixes and/or instrumental versions of others?


Thanks in advance,

 

Paul.

Yes please! Looking for the string "remix" in the song name and filtering that out should help quite a bit. 

 

This would make a HUGE difference to the quality of the Discover feature for me, and, I suspect, for most people.
