How hard could it be to fix this?

Identical problem exists with the artist name ANTAEUS

There is the Chill Electronica artist Alexx Antaeus https://soundcloud.com/alexx_antaeus , as well as the French Death Metal band. Totally different genres of music.

Can't believe this isn't fixed yet!!!! THREE YEARS AND RUNNING!!!!

I love spotify but their reluctance to address glaring deficiencies like this (and the **bleep** song limit issue) is really bewildering!

Heres another one 

Norman Blake- Bluegrass Guitarist

Norman Blake- Solo artist formerly of Teenage Fanclub

Hey, I got one wrong match too.

I was surprised to see a new album "Life" on ATB artist page (progressive house/trance) which turned out to be some soul/R&B stuff.

Another rather important problem ignored by ignorant developers, what a surprise.

My band Event Horizon just released an EP called A Study In Change and the artist page is a mess of various different releases. How can this still be a problem?

Yes I know, I've posted this in the wrong place by accident.

Still not fixed after FOUR YEARS? 

There are at least two artists who show up as Redshift - one is Berlin School electronic music, the other some kind of dance music - clearly not the same artists!

Please sort this nonsense out ASAP!

I have the same problem 2 different artists with the same name merged together.

Satellites 

https://satellites.bandcamp.com/album/la-singularitat-i-la-fracci 

and this

https://www.facebook.com/Satellitesofficial/

 

This should be fixed ASAP. Imagine that this affects also the "learning" algorithms. For example. You are listering to Satellites band from Romania (Alternative-Rock) here is more of their songs in the discover weekly... oh wait... this band is from Spain and some of their albums are in Spanish.

Same problem for years now. The albums of my punk rock band, **bleep** ROOM, are lumped together with singles by a Brazilian DJ of the same name, **bleep** Room. It would be pretty neat if someone at Spotify actually did something about it because it's not very cool for the fans. It would be super sweet if I could actually contact a human being at Spotify. Every time I send an email, it's redirected back to me, telling me to look in the user forums for an answer. When did this thread start, like 2012? I'll be holding my breath...
