Who The Heck Are All of These Artists?!

Who The Heck Are All of These Artists?!

Whilst searching for songs and curating a certain playlist, from time to time I's encounter these strange tracks:


As you can see, these artists follow a similar pattern:


  • With the exception of a few such as 'Dreamtail', 'Noolanda', or 'Wadoru', all of the artists have a first and last name.
  • Listeners and followers of these artists are around the 100 - 10,000 range.
  • All releases by these artists are singles and/or EPs.
  • Album covers and artist portraits are stock photos that have absolutely nothing to do with the songs (eg. 'Merifat Holm' by Brett Griffiths shows a rather determined boxer, yet the song is a rather relaxing jazz piece).
  • Song titles either refer to a person or a location.
  • Songs seem to be very short, ranging from about 50 seconds to almost 2 minutes.
  • Artist discography is EXTREMELY SMALL, with about 1-5 songs for each artist.
  • Songs seem to cover a wide variety of instrumental genres: piano, world, funk, jazz, etc., but tend to be repetitive, have a low-quality, laggy, 'glitched-out' sound, and end abruptly.
  • Different songs by two different artists will be exactly the same (eg. 'Hingdiac Mountain Path' by Piper Jackson and 'Hingfell Wood by Steller Parker'; 'Mobeoprin Island' by Logan Stevens, 'The Bland Ait' by Gale George, and 'Giant Wilds' by Harriet Lowe)
  • Source for most of these artists in song credits is 'SKY TECH DISTRIBUTION' - nothing music-related comes up when I Google this.


Above is a playlist I made of many songs by these weirdos. You can check them out if you'd like. If anyone knows what exactly's going on here with these artists and if they can be reported for spam, I'd love to know as soon as possible.

I have the same problem with 1 of my bands, they just uploaded 5 songs with their names.

Just noticed the same thing the other day. Did you ever work out what all this filler music was?


I wondered if it was a cunning way of making money from Spotify or something. The tracks are nonsense musically, but tonally they do kind of fit into the playlists I've encountered them in (techno, electro, anything with repetitive grooves), so wondered if that was a conscious decision in order to get the algo to pick them up for radio playlists etc
