One of my initial goals with music4dance was to be able to create playlists to dance to. I can finally say that I’ve got this working in a way that is close to my original vision at least for Spotify.
The idea is, for instance, that I’d like to build a playlist of Foxtrot songs that are on the faster end of the spectrum (say 132-136bpm) and further limit the list to songs that are in the pop genre. I’ve had the system in place for a long time to generate search results for a list like this from the advanced search page.
The new and exciting thing is that when you get the results of this search, there is a button at the bottom labeled “Create Spotify Playlist.” Clicking on that button will bring you to a page where you can name the playlist and choose the number of songs from the search results to include. More help on this feature is available here.
Creating a custom playlist is a premium feature. But you can take advantage of all of the standard playlists by checking out the music4dance profile on Spotify.
