SMIX.LAB cooperates with Music Ally

06. April 2022

The SMIX.LAB of the Popakademie Baden-Württemberg collaborated with the London-based company Music Ally. The aim of the collaboration was to produce a report on the impact of playlisting on the further development of streaming numbers of emerging artists:inside. It is an original study using Spotify data from a series of case studies to better understand the impact of playlisting on the "breakthrough" of some of the biggest newcomers of 2021.

The report is aimed at artists and marketers who want to rethink their approach to playlisting emerging artists and help them make decisions with more confidence. The goal is the sustainable success of up-and-coming artists in the world of music business, where digitalization now plays a major role.

It serves the transfer of digital knowledge, future-oriented research, investigates modern possibilities of music marketing, wants to help shape and initiate.
