Fill your evenings with music – Introducing Dinner and Sleep categories to Browse

DinnerAndSleep

We’ve been working hard on curating music for the moments that matter the most in your life. And the evening is one of those moments that is important and special to a lot of us. It’s the time of the day when we can unwind and spend time with the ones we care about the most. So today we’re launching two totally new categories – one dedicated to dinner time and another one to help you fall asleep.

For all those different, wonderful, noisy, life-changing nights.

Dinner can mean a lot of different things: it’s a three course meal with sparkling champagne, hot pancakes with ice cream or cold pizza on the couch in front of the TV. But food is not the whole experience – it is what you build around it that counts. If breakfast is the most important meal of the day, dinner is certainly the least predictable. We want you to have the best possible dinnertime, whether you’re home alone with a sandwich, or out and about surrounded by all of your best friends.

As of today, you can find playlists for all kinds of dinners in Browse. You can host a Picnic in the Park, celebrate Taco Tuesday, or cook up The Perfect Italian Dinner. We have even Flaming Hot BBQ Classics, Breakbeat BBQ and Reggae BBQ playlists to choose from.

Everybody has to eat. So, why not invite your mom, your neighbour, or that hot new fling over to chew through the issues of the day while listening to music curated exactly for that moment? Even if you burn the sauce or overcook the potatoes, everything will taste a little bit better with great music.

The eight hours to save your life

We can fight it, crave it, miss it, or skip it, but, eventually, sleep can be the most rewarding gift in our daily lives. Such is its importance – and impact on us – that some scientists now argue that, since we are asleep for between a quarter and a third of our entire lives, our dreams themselves should be considered a very potent alternate reality.

With that in mind, we’re launching Sleep as a whole new category in Browse. Sleep is your new home for synapse-stroking, non-invasive, care-banishing, pillow-smoothing, muscle-relaxing playlists – the dream-ticket for those times when you need to turn it all off, relax, and float downstream. Sleep is the ultimate release from pressure, the ultimate retreat from the cares of the day. You’ve got eight hours to save your life – why not get started right now?

Head over to Browse on Spotify to find these two new categories. We hope you enjoy them as much as we have enjoyed creating them for you.

Having more than 20 million songs instantly at your fingertips is a DJ’s dream come true.

Our friends at Algoriddim today announce a major update to djay for iPhone and iPad, the world’s best selling DJ app with over 10 million users on iOS. This new version lets all our Premium subscribers mix millions of tracks using their iPhone and iPad, as well as hook up their professional DJ hardware to a massive library of music – being a DJ has never been easier or more fun!

Not only can Spotify Premium subscribers DJ millions of songs, but they’ll also enjoy real-time, intelligent suggestions on what to play next, powered by The Echo Nest’s analysis of all the music on Spotify

Some of the features include:

  • Your music: Spotify integration in djay 2 includes all of your existing playlists, starred tracks and Inbox (to receive real-time song requests), powerful search capabilities, top lists, browse (by genres, moods, DJs). You can seamlessly switch between Spotify and their existing local library, as well as mix tracks from both of these sources.
  • Match: Finding the next track to mix has always been one of the biggest challenges for DJs, and it doesn’t get easier when you’ve got millions of tracks to choose from. Match, powered by Spotify’s recent acquisition The Echo Nest, provides unprecedented track recommendations based on danceability, BPM, key, music style, and how well the song mixes with the currently playing track.
  • Hardware Integration: djay 2 supports a wide range of professional DJ gear allowing users to mix tracks from the cloud using tactile knobs, buttons and jog wheels. Algoriddim’s djay 2 app is powered by exclusive hardware from Pioneer, Numark, Vestax, Reloop, Philips, Casio, and Griffin.
  • Social Sharing: djay 2 allows users to share their set lists as Spotify playlists via SMS, Email, Facebook, and Twitter, so the rest of the world can listen to the tracks instantly or recreate a great set.
