hmm... spotify link does not work...

But I followed the bandcamp breadcrumbs and found it on Spotify.

Quickly listened to it. There are some cool stuff, that fits the playlist. I'll add one, once I decide which one... stay tuned...

I added Somavar. I think it fits the <10mn and the style fits most pieces on the playlist.

Appreciate if you could put the playlist as your artist's pick. You can do that from the Spotify artist site. It will be removed automatically in a week or two. And if you can encourage your connections from checking on the playlist, even better.

Thanks

Thanks for putting this together, looking forward to checking it out.

If you curate a list like this, can you see who is following?

Thanks for checking it.

Unfortunately, there is no way for me to know who is following this list. At least I can see the number of monthly listeners, by looking at the about section of some artists (when the playlist is in their top 5 discovered on).

I guess, if I could scan all the Spotify users, and check the playlists they listen to, I would find the followers of this playlist, and then so what, no way to reach to them...

Celebrating a milestone with more than 300 followers for this playlist.

Thanks all for listening to it and therefore helping modular synth artists be a bit more visible on Spotify

Shameless self promo...These tracks were made with mostly modular, and I gig with my eurorack frequently.
Don't be ashamed :lol: I added one track to the playlist. This is very nice music, and I like that you play with the stereo field.

Would you mind promoting the playlist to your connections, followers, fans,.. on all your social networks? It helps everyone on the playlist.

May I also suggest, you add it as an artist pick on your Spotify artist page?

Thanks

Added more tracks and reaching nearly 500 followers.

This is becoming the best playlist to discover fellow artists, if I could say so myself...

1500+ Followers

Just passed 1500 followers and many listeners if you check the about section of the artists on the playlist.

This is exciting that it is becoming the reference playlist for modular synth on Spotify.

Thanks all!

I'm doing a bit of catch up, from the Spotify playlist, adding 5 tracks to the Apple music every day...

Update from the front:

2,222+ followers on Spotify and I update it every other week:


and Apple Music playlist is growing too, more and more followers:

and I still take submissions:
- Spotify link to album or track
- artist not yet on the playlist
- track contains a modular synth
- track less than <10mn

I thought I should do an update, the playlist has 3,226 followers with 97 artists for a running time of 8h59mn.

Thanks everyone for everyone!

I added 4 artists in the last 2 weeks.

Spotify has removed the number of listeners, so cannot see how well it does for each artist, but what I know, is that it is the top playlist on most artists "Discovered On" section.
