[Music] Custom Start & Ending Times for a Track

Hi.

 

I'm a big electronic music lover and there is only one feature i would like added to spotify. The option to choose a part of the track i would like to play and have the settings saved.

 

In the world of electronic music there is almost allways 2-3 minute build ups, and not many radio mixes of each track.

 

This can be a problem when having a party and a track lasts for 7 minutes with 3 of them is a buildup that not everyone would like to listen to.

 

It would be nice to have a feature like this that i can change on each track, just drag 2 buttons to a start and end point. and maybe have a 3-5 second fade on where i choose to set them.

 

Made a quick illustration on what i mean. Spotify proposition.jpg

This small change would be a game changer in terms of usability for so many users out there. Would allow users to turn playlists into mixes. Playlists of electronic music (especially house music - which always has long, slow intros not representative of the rest of the song) for parties are currently a disaster in Spotify. It would give Spotify a competitive edge on rival platforms.

Estimated timing?

Definitely agree with this. No idea why it wasn't implemented from the beginning. I mean iTunes has had it for as long as i can remember. It is a perfect option for long intro/outro electronic songs (which is a huuuuuge amount these days)

This feature is being used in some of the official playlists now, so it must just be a matter of time before us normal users have access.

 

I wouldn't be surprised if the wait had something to do with playtime stats and artist payout.

Yeah, i was thinking it might affect that sort of thing. Money is always an issue -.- Hopefully they find a way around it

to me this is an essential feature for playlist plack back. some songs contain intros or outros which are either unapropiate for public or they simply break the flow of the playlist. this feature would fix that problem in a easy to handle way. +1

example? -> spotify:track:2f44DgdenOKJfuec40TwKd -> annoying 1 minute outro when in playlist or shuffle mode

I really need the ability to edit songs in a playlist as I use songs in my work as a dance teacher, choreographer and in performance. I am often not using the entirety of the song in a particular piece of dance choreography. Please add this capacity to Spotify. Thank you.

How the heck is this still not in Spotify? Pick up the slack, Spotify!
