Release Radar has gone off the rails

Release Radar has gone off the rails

My release radar has gone crazy. It's about 95% remixes of genres I don't even listen to, and in some cases remixes of remixes. I would say about .01% of my 1200 song liked songs library is remixes. I have no idea where Spotify got the idea that I wanted to hear nothing but remixes. This has been going on for weeks and I keep removing these songs from the Release Radar playlist, but Spotify is persistent and it doesn't appear to be making a difference.

Hey @Chief_longbeef,


Thanks for reaching out here in the Community.


We're sorry to hear that you've been receiving recommendations you didn't enjoy in the Release Radar playlist. The way that Release Radar is set up is that it gets renewed every Friday and counts as a new playlist. Because of this, the songs that you had hidden in the last week might still appear in the new one. 


Take into account that the Don't play this feature only prevents the songs by the blocked artist from being played. They might still show up on playlists and even in your recommendations, but the songs should be skipped. Currently, there's no way to visually "hide" the songs by the artist.


If the issue persists after your next Release Radar, we'd recommend performing a clean reinstall of the app. This is more thorough than a regular one and can be helpful to get rid of any cache that might be causing issues. 


We also suggest taking a look at this article for tips on how to improve your Made for You playlists.
