"Track is not available in your country" - bypass?

Hello!

So, since a few weeks back I have found some good music on youtube that has been released (most music from Spinnin Records), and most of the tracks have also been released on Spotify, but not here in Sweden. So when I try to play these unavailable tracks I get the message "This track is currently not available in Sweden".

 

So my question is: Is there a way to bypass this so I can access these and many more tracks? I have heard that you can use proxys, but how?

Would be very grateful if someone could help me with this, since there are some reaaallyyy good tracks I want to listen to through Spotify and not youtube.

Not inside the Spotify terms of usage I'm afraid.

So, I'll just have to wait for a couple of weeks/months more until it will be released here in Sweden? If so, that's a shame, since I pay 99kr to listen to "all the music avaible on Spotify" ;(

Yup, unfortunately the way content gets added is down to the licensing - the record labels appear to decide where and when content is available. You will find with certain bands they go "exclusive" on other services for a period of time in certain countries too.
