After a few google searches I am coming up emtpy handed, so thought I'd ask here: I am looking for a Mac app that can control a spotify instance on another Mac.
i.e. my mac mini is running spotify and connected to my stereo. Any way I can remote control spotify from my other mac? (I am not looking for a Remote Desktop/VNC solution - as the mac mini is actually my media server and attached to the TV).
Any help would be much appreciated!

There are several options available to you as far as controlling Spotify remotely. Most of them are designed to allow you to use an iPhone or iPad as a remote control for Spotify. There is one called Spotify Web Remote that may be more that you were looking for. There is a full list of these types of products available here: http://www.spotify.com/us/about/spotify-on-the-web/apps-remote-controllers/ . Spotify Web Remote is the second to the last item on the page.
Alternatively, you can also use AirPlay, although it would require the purchase of an application called AirFoil. With that, you would run the app called AirFoil Speakers on the Mac Mini, and run the AirFoil app on your other computer. Then you can redirect the audio to the Mac Mini, and control it using the full Spotify interface on the other box.
Hopefully you'll find an acceptable solution here somewhere!
