While Spotify beavers away on beefing up its recommendation features, an externally-developed web app has jumped in early. Echofi matches Spotify’s music library with The Echo Nest’s API, with the aim of providing Pandora-style personalised ‘radio’ playlists generated from specific artists. It’s pretty clever: you have Echofi open in a web browser window and Spotify’s desktop application open separately, then the former controls the latter. You’re able to mark songs as loved or banned on the website, as well as skipping tracks. Of course, this sort of thing would work just as well within Spotify itself – we’d be surprised if the company isn’t working on something along these lines to roll out in the months ahead.
