Abundance of Remix/Live/Demo versions of songs on Release Radar

Morning all,

 

Has anyone else noticed the Release Radar seems to be disproportionately full of remixes, live tracks and demos for the last couple of weeks?

They're not things I particularly listen to, so not sure why Spotify has suddenly started recommending them.

 

I wouldn't mind if it was just the odd track on the playlist but this week 12 of the 30 tracks are alternative versions of songs, some of which I've previously listened to the original others I haven't, and that just seems excessive.

 

All I can think of is that the algorithm is struggling to find new music that falls into my likes, so is surfacing alternate versions of tracks.

 

Anyone else noticed the same problem?

 

Thanks

Matt
