EMusic President & CEO Adam Klein Responds To Spotify's Music Discovery Announcement

NEW YORK, Dec. 6, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- "We're delighted to see that Spotify is starting to curate content given that this is one of the biggest challenges today's online music consumers face. With 15 million to 30 million tracks available on most sites, where do they even begin finding new music relevant to them?" said eMusic President and Chief Executive Officer Adam Klein. "We believe our discovery algorithm is distinctly different from others in that it combines technology-based algorithms with a strong human element: On top of an algorithm, our recommendations are heavily influenced by an individual user's overall music collection and download history, as well as the collections owned by our core audience of music tastemakers. eMusic has been a leader in personalized music discovery for years, and has rich user history data dating back to 1998. While we are devoted to a more culturally independent audience than Spotify's Top 40-skewed listener, we are thrilled to see that the company is taking steps forward in enhancing the music discovery process for its listeners."
