How do I get on playlists?

The DSP editorial roles involve discovering new music, keeping up with trends, and creating playlists that resonate with different listener groups. If you’re looking to get your track featured on an editorial playlist, here’s the best approach and remember no one can guarantee you an editorial playlist:

1. Submit Through Spotify for Artists: The first step is to make sure your music is uploaded to Spotify at least a week before its release date. Once your upcoming release is in your Spotify for Artists account, there’s an option to submit it for playlist consideration. Please include as much information as possible about the track. The more Spotify knows about the song and the story behind it, the better chance it has.

2. Get Your Music Heard: Beyond Spotify’s internal submission process, getting your music heard by as many people as possible can increase its chances of being noticed. Share it with your network, engage your fans, and use social media to its fullest potential.

3. Consistent Quality: DSPs always look for tracks that demonstrate consistent quality and appeal to our listeners. Keep refining your sound and production quality.

4. Playlist-Friendly: Different playlists serve different moods or activities. When submitting, make sure your track aligns with the playlist you are targeting.

5. Engage Your Fans: A dedicated fanbase that saves your tracks, adds them to their personal playlists, and shares your music can increase your chances of getting noticed by an editorial team.
