Technology can do only so much. Sometimes, you do need a human to find the gems when it comes to what Spotify has on offer. Thank goodness there are plenty of dedicated blogs, or online journals, that can help you with this task. I’ve listed some of the most popular ones in the following sections, but I’m sure plenty are springing up every day — So, here are the best Spotify music blogs you should follow in 2017, so keep a lookout!
Soundofus posts a Spotify link to a new track every day and rates a selection of albums, which you can launch directly in Spotify. There doesn’t seem to be any particular genre that soundofus.com sticks to. If it sounds good, they link to it. A nice touch is a category called Oldies of the Day (which tends to focus on a diverse range of 60s and 70s music) and up- to-date YouTube videos are added, too.
Another great resource, Spotinews a blog that displays brand new songs on Spotify. The work with Spotinews is based on the Swedish Spotify content. If you’re from another country some albums may be unavailable. This site is in no way associated with Spotify. The purpose with this blog is to inform how the content in Spotify grows weekly and to find some of the “goodies” and present them as recommendations.
Well, my blog should be included in this list! I love to investigate through what albums and singles have just been added to Spotify and SoundCloud. Also, I regularly post my favorite discoveries every single day. On ELECTRO WOW you can find a variety of House, Trap, EDM, Techno, Trance, and Pop music releases. A big number of indie artists and debut acts showcased their singles on this blog. My musical tastes allowed me to have thousands of fans from all over the world since 2007.

Beijing-based Shi Lei (Spotify user ulyssestone) runs the popular Spotify Classical Playlists blog, which includes plenty of classical playlists, along with tips for listening to classical gems on Spotify. For instance, Lei has posted a playlist of Bach’s complete works, which were released as a whopping 172-CD box set by German label Hänssler Classic. More than 3,000 tracks are included in this playlist, and the great thing about Spotify is that you can filter the tracks in a couple of seconds. You don’t need to scroll through such a massive library if you have only a particular opus in mind. Lei has also collated a chronological playlist of all Beethoven’s works, whose publication dates didn’t necessarily correspond with their completion dates.
