Spotify: University of Warwick Playlist

Writing about web page http://open.spotify.com/user/mathewjm/playlist/2l7tQUrlTmhoSBiWqjWp7K

For those that aren't aware, Spotify is probably the hottest thing in music right now. Provided you are at your computer, you can listen to vast swathes of music legally and for free.

UK users can sign up for Spotify for free

Here's a video on how it works.

As an experiment, I've created a University of Warwick playlist that anyone can add music to. Go!

    Excellent. Just contributed a Rob Dougan tune, and another from M83.

    Love it! But it’s a shame that there’s no way to know who added what, because now I can’t find whoever added some of those great tracks and demand that they tell me lots of other things they listen to as well.

    Hopefully some more features for collaborative playlists will happen soon

    I’ll freely fess up to what I added – I love my taste in music so have nothing to hide from ;) So far my additions have been:

    Speed Me Towards Death – Rob Dougan
    0078h – M83
    Infinite Regression – Quantic
    The Beginning is the End is the Beginning – Smashing Pumpkins
    Recurring – Bonobo
    Hayling – FC Kahuna
    Dissolved Girl – Massive Attack

    Don’t know how big exactly Mat had envisaged the playlist getting – I could keep going for ages but don’t want to hog it! :)
