My Question or Issue


I have a question regarding the mixtape of the week overview.

In the normal overview "Mixtape of the week" I see five mixtapes (1-5), which were all generated by the algorithm and correspond to my taste in music.

However, under the "Discover" overview there is a second "Mixtape 1", which contains completely different titles to those found in Mixtape 1 in the overview.

Not one of the songs in it matches my taste in music.

Can the mixtapes be manipulated by external parties?

Is it possible to influence the algorithm?

Thank you for your feedback in advance.

Best regards

Hey @quecksilbrig, welcome to the Community!


Sorry to hear you're having trouble with this. We'll be glad to help out though.


The second playlist in your screenshot doesn't look like the Daily Mixes that Spotify generates for you. Are you able to see who made the list?


Also, these mixes are influenced by your listening habits. If you'd like different mixes, try listening to different tunes so the algorithm can suggest something else.


Let us know how it goes.

The first mixtape was "officially" created by Spotify, on January 1st, 1970 ...


I am aware that my listening habits influence the algorithm :-)
