About how much DW has changed my music taste... Well it has certainly become more electronic. Those blues-jazz-other interesting genre-offbounces come through a few music artists that I monitor closely.
I used to listen to just a few artists before plunging into this feature... And in the beginning, sometime, me and one of my friends would listen to very similar music... Meaning that our Discover Weekly playlists were similar as well. She still gets song recommendations that are in the listing of the sounds that I like. ;)
Most of my "You Sound Nice" playlist is formed by the Discover Weekly.

It has not changed my taste but it contributes to the discovery of different versions of the songs that I like. The different versions of songs especially covers are something not easy to be discovered. Besides this, Discover Weekly helps me to expand my own playlist especially on collecting the songs that I like.
Discover weekly, in my opinion is one of the best spotify inventions/widgets to have been created. It has greatly influenced not only mine for definite but thusands of other user's tastes too. It has opened me up to so much more different types/genres of music suited to my own personal tastes spotify has picked up on.
My Discover Weekly helped me find so many artists I never listened to that I do now! I always wanted to listen to new music but I never knew the best ways to find new stuff, but once I started listening to my Discover Weekly I was introduced to so many great songs and artists. I remember hearing "City Of Stars" by Logic on my Discover Weekly for the first time, and that introduced me to his music and other rappers like him!! It is honestly great.
before getting into Spotify, I did not opened my ears to anythign I already knew it was good. But with the Discover playlists I have started to appreciate the love for finding hidden Gems I found Gin Wigmore, I found K. Fley, I found Finde... and a lot of other acts that are not that mainstream, but are even better than most of the mainstream artists that I know..
Discover Weekly is something I have counted on for the past few weeks..it is selective to the right songs I want on my playlist, rather than waiting for New Music Friday! I feel that I am using it more often than my own release radar, and I wish the release radar was more specific and had more songs added on Fridays that are particular to my added songs!
