So, is Spotify using the practice of creating music specifically designed to be spread in generic playlists such as Peaceful Piano, Sleep, Ambient Chill and Music For Concentration, circumventing the royalty system?
The Verge figured out some other useful information and came to an interesting conclusion (read here the full article):
“By way of interviews with the artists behind some of the tracks on the list, The Verge can confirm that many of the artists behind the names on the list are independent musicians. Some have public careers of their own, while others have taken on various roles behind the scenes as producers, commissioned soundtrack artists, or session musicians.”
That’s not the first time that Spotify get some media attention about a suspicion practice. We’ll see next move.
