"This Is" Playlist request

Newbie

Good morning, folks!

I'd like to know who (department (?)) is responsible for creating "This Is Artist/Band" playlists and, also, how can I, a mere mortal, interfere or influence in favor of the creation of a "This Is" of a specific band - Heidevolk, in this case

Thanks y'all for your attention 😄

Hi @korokd

Unfortunately, I don't think you can influence "This is" playlists on Spotify. As far as I know (Spotify never officially stated that) those playlists are generated for each artist above a certain number of listeners. Only Spotify decided if an artist get such playlist and what is included in it.

Have a great day and lots of cool songs.

Hey there @korokd,

 

Thanks for reaching out and welcome to the Community!

 

If you're an artist, you can also take a look at this helpful FAQ article for more info.

i dont think you can currently do this... maybe make your own playlist of your favourite tunes by this band... it seems as if they dont make this is.. playlists for more obscure bands. they have mainly very famous artists.

Hey so I don't have all the answers and am deeply mystified by the "this is" playlist feature myself, hence my being led to this thread to begin with! 

 

Anyway I will say I'm a pretty under the radar artist that actually had someone else try to take my artist name (accumulating a strangely large amount of plays in the process) but as it turns out, followers or overall play count is not necessarily a factor in the generating of a "This is" playlist for an artist...

 

I think it is slightly more complicated algorithms that are attempting not to allow those "underground" artists to get lost in the shuffle of weird second rate manufactured pop... I can't say for certain it's completely successful and like I said I am just making assumptions based on my recent observations. There are a bunch of questions I have about it too but it doesn't seem like I can google myself to any clear answer which honestly is kinda sexy and strange and I can dig it. Here's to A.I. that values lo-fi!! I'm gunna attach the "This is Kid Indigo" (dat's me ya'll) and you can check it out, I don't have one of the fancy cut out glamour shot covers, I am starting to gather that there is some sort of trial period and they jazz up the look if they think it's worth the time, otherwise they probably delete it and forget they ever took the chance. Hopefully my weirdstuff will find the right audience before they give me the hook haha. ANYWAY I hope that helps somehow. https://open.spotify.com/playlist/37i9dQZF1DZ06evO1YHHkn?si=tniB1gtdTHGzzG7mow_2Rg
