Spotify's new AI-driven DJ mode appeared on my phone. It began with the "DJ" introducing himself and explaining what would be happening. The following songs then played:
Bee Gees: "Holiday"
Kelly Hunt: "Across the Great Divide"
Sleater-Kinney: "Get Up"
Molly Burch: "Control"
Lovin' Spoonful: "Bald Headed Lena"
After which, the DJ came back and told me what kind of stuff would be next. The DJ mode is supposed to be tailored to my tastes as Spotify knows them, and it's true that I had previously liked 4 of the first 5 songs (I'd never heard of Molly Burch).
It's not random ... Spotify has been tracking my listening for years. So I have confidence the music selections will be good. Still too early to decide if the DJ will be annoying.
(First oddity: DJ said it was time to look back to 2018, but then played songs I had played frequently in 2018, rather than playing music from 2018.)
