The Arch Linux wiki has a lot of good info on using HiDPI displays with linux (I'm using Debian, but most of the Arch info works for other distributions). For Spotify they suggest simply using the Ctrl++ and Ctrl+- key combinations in Spotify (using Ctrl+0 returns to defaults).

$ grep zoom ~/.config/spotify/Users/*/prefs
