Spotify has launched a new feature called Party mode to expertly beat-match a playlist, resulting in smooth track transitions. Alas, no more awkward pauses between tunes.
This mobile-only feature can adjust the pace of a playlist to match the vibe of the party, according to the user controlled mood tuner. For the launch, Spotify has premiered a 120-track playlist from certified party king Diplo. They promise more DJ-generated playlists to come.
Is this a good thing? On the positive side, drunken randoms are less likely to snatch the aux cord and blast out Beyonce at 5am. On the down side. What next..? A Grandmaster Flash android that mimics primitive hip hop scratching? A Villalobos chip that automatically remixes every tune on your playlist to a minimalist masterpiece? That last one sounds quite good actually...
