anyone know how to send an invite to someone for Spotify... it is invite only now. cant find anywhere that says anything along the lines of "send invite" - need 'elp if you know. cheers.

Spotify, and all other legal digital streaming or download services, rely on the correct owning label uploading the audio and detailed label copy info to Spotify for the music to be available. for...

Problem with Spotify is that you are constantly streaming from their server so it's a complete bandwidth hog.

Giles, I just tapped just the word "Ulrich" into Spotify.... it came back with quite a few results for Mr. Schnauss. Thought u'd wanna know. Also had one Coil track called A Cold Cell In Bangkok

it's not every time, its cached if you've listened to it recently. frankly if you're worried about traffic shaping you should be looking at the other bandwidth hungry apps. downloading individual...

Thought I'd pop my head back into UK-D after a long absence. Seems smaller, but still has that je ne se quois that makes it interesting.

So basically, it's a Mac/​PC App that streams released tracks - there's no 'download' option?

Been a great year for music, best for a good while imo Not sure how much of this you can hear through Spotify, but have a go: 20 + 10 for twenty-ten open.spotify.com Artist of the year: SBTRKT...

Oh! Maybe you're a posh premium user... I dont seem to have that option.. buggery. maybe its time to pay... i dont actually use it that much but I prob would if i started paying for it... ta anyway..

Nah I dont think ou are.. its just not got the best search engine... Ive put tracks in that i have listened to before and neither band or track have appeared when i've wanted to listen to the said...

I think I'm using it wrong or something. Will give it another shot. Cheers G

It's not so much that, it's more the fact you are essentially downloading a song everytime you want to listen to it - for those with traffic shaping on their connection (don't think any ISP in the...

this should give you a bit more info about what network activity Spotify generates, it a hybrid peer-to-peer system so until you can get a bit more control over what it does and when I'd advise not...

Well it's got the entire Jean Grae back catalogue, and no-one seems to have heard of her outside underground hip-hop fans. iain

I shall stick to searching for The Saturdays then.

Never heard of them. If most people haven't heard of an artist there's every chance they won't be there. iain

Odd, I've had real difficulty finding the music I want on it. Everything from Ulrich Schnauss to Coil and a whole host of Post Punk and Electro too.

T3: I absolutely agree and it's funny you're a fan of it cos very few people know it.

"This Mortal Coil" by The Cocteau Twins. Viva! You Tube! more so Spotify" WRRRRRRRRONG! i have just been corrected by the person who played me this... the above is wrong.... its....

you can also get spotify on it rebekah - although you might have to subscribe, unlike the regular version. lastfm too.

thinking about the above statement, it's slightly misleading imho because .. even if a dj "prefers" to use vinyl with serato... dj's are used to winging it if need be.. and can use what is...

Woah. Good skillz. It is surprising how shit the G4 processor is when running Leopard etc. My iBook about to explode and have 2 other machines about to bite the dust.

they pushed the app store rejection thing too far and got a rap on the knuckles by the fcc (the US version of ofcom) - this was in relation to google talk, a telephony service still not launched...

As well as my rave past I love the slower end of music too... I guess it comes with the "come up" - there has to be an opposite to balance things out... I thought I'd had it all...

its nowhere near the same audio quality though and Apple are fine with these kinda apps, they're not actually that bothered about losing track sales from the iTunes store as long as iPod and iPhone...

haha, oh yea.. for £2000 i got a S1000 and paid a simliar amount for my Korg T3... both of which I wqs very happy with for year.
