A Year In Music: 2013 As Spotify Playlists
Streaming may be killing Thom Yorke's will to live and spoiling Foals' chances of buying a yacht, but for fans it's still an incredible way to explore billions of songs and gorge on new releases without needing to take the all-filler albums back to the shops.
Since Spotify started DiS has made 'crap loads' of playlists (you can find a lot of our Spotify playlists archived here) and this year we've kept making our monthly playlists, as well as a bunch of others, such as our hugely popular 'Music for Office Workers' series and our introduction to 4AD, which you'll find underneath.
The DiS Spotify App
We're a few lines of code away from having a special DiS app on Spotify. Sign up to our mailing list to be the first to find out about it when it launches.
Please note: We were not able to move the 70k email addresses we had on our mailing list over to this new system, so you will need to re-subscribe to continue to get emails from us every few months.
