The Truth About Mixing Spotify#

Because Spotify is a streaming platform, there are some complications around using it as a DJing tool. They've also made several changes to their terms of service which has limited some interactions that used to be possible for DJs.

Back in the day, several DJ apps could connect with Spotify, letting you mix the music in real-time.

Sadly, Spotify has since removed this feature, making it largely impossible to DJ live using Spotify.

Several native features allow you to create rough mixes on your Spotify account, although these are not up to scratch for DJs. It basically just lets you create shared playlists, which Spotify blends with a basic crossfade - no beatmatching or slick transitions.

If you want to DJ with Spotify, you should check out DJ.Studio - which is explained in the second half of this post.

You might be interested in the Spotify Blend feature. This is a basic tool that lets you share your music tastes with friends...

What is a Spotify Blend Playlist?#

Spotify Blend Playlists are a feature in the app that lets you create playlists with friends, and get suggestions based on shared listening tastes. This can be a nice way to connect with your friends over music and discover new songs.

Follow these instructions to make a Spotify blend shared playlist:

  1. Create a Blend (you can think of this as a virtual 'music club')

    1. Go to your library, click '+', and select Blend.

    2. Click invite, and share the link with people you want to share the blend with.

    3. You can also add artists to your blend with the Artist's Blend invite link.

  2. You can now access a shared blend playlist from your library. These personalized playlists will be updated with new music daily, based on your group's recent listening.

  4. Either search for music with the bar or paste in a track of your Spotify playlist URL. Make sure the playlist is set to public in the Spotify app.

  5. Add tracks, or an entire playlist to your DJ.Studio setlist by clicking the symbols. DJ.Studio takes the links from Spotify and finds the song on YouTube. You can then choose the order of the tracks, or...

  6. (Optional) Use the automix feature. This automatically orders and arranges your songs based on their key and tempo, keeping the beats matched and the mixes harmonic. These are pretty advanced skills that usually take DJs years to master, however, you can benefit from these in a matter of seconds.
