At Band Express, we can submit artists through the world’s premium Spotify Playlist Pitching Service ‘PlayList Pump‘, described as a ‘first in the world’ for the services the team at Upside Music offer through Playlist Pump – The Music Network!
In short, anyone can create a playlist on Spotify which may or may not gain followers. However, when record labels and major ‘Curators’ create playlists, the artists who are on those playlists gain massive exposure due to the size of the following of each playlist.
Getting your music on Discover Weekly is as easy as getting it on Spotify. As more people listen to your music and add it to their playlists, it’s more likely to appear in Discover Weekly.
Here’s how Discover Weekly works.
Music fans on Spotify have created over 2 billion playlists, and each one of those playlists teaches us something new about the relationships between the songs they contain. Every Monday, Discover Weekly creates 100 million personal playlists by combining each listener’s unique taste with song information built from those 2 billion playlists—recommending songs that other people who have similar taste in music are enjoying.
Spotify for Artists shows you how many people are listening to your music on Discover Weekly. If you don’t have access to Spotify for Artists, get access here.
Every Friday, Release Radar gives music fans up to two hours of new releases from the artists they follow and listen to the most.
Your new releases are automatically added to your followers’ Release Radar—so the key to getting your music on Release Radar is having fans follow you on Spotify. The more followers you have, the more fans hear your new releases.

Daily Mix is a set of personalized playlists that combine a listener’s favorite tracks with a few songs they haven’t heard but we think they’ll love.
Your songs start showing up more frequently in Daily Mix as more fans listen to your music on Spotify.
Search results in Spotify are based on a mix of current and all-time popularity—but vary from user to user based on personal listening preferences.
The more streams and followers you have, the higher up you’ll appear in searches.
