Platform Pop: Spotify's Role as an Intermediary in the Music Industry

Spotify is called the “new radio” for the influence it has on breaking new songs and artists, and for the important role it plays in music discovery and consumption. This project examines the types of artists and playlists that Spotify promotes through its own platform and on Twitter. Conceptualizing Spotify as a key intermediary, out team is investigating whether Spotify is leveling the playing field or entrenching hierarchies between major labels, independent labels and unsigned artists.
