This is the one thing about Spotify that annoys the living hell out of me (yes, I use spotify, if anyone knows a good/working self hosted alternative, let me know! I've tried quite a few including funkwhale but they all failed for me).

I'm a raw hardstyle/rawstyle lover and listen to the raw duo Malice a lot. Now, what would the problem be here? Sometimes, there are several artists in different scenes with the same name. This is completely fine.

Spotify, however, mixes up music of the raw duo Malice and the rock/metal band Malice. I keep getting release notifications/news regarding new music/events from Malice but 90 percent of the time this is about the rock/metal band and NOT the raw duo.
It's also very weird to suddenly hear rock music while listening to my daily mix; the wrong malice is mixed in once again.

Yesterday I got an email saying "Check out Malice's newest release on Spotify!"

*opens Spotify release radar*
That's the other malice 😡

Is it so hard, Spotify? Entirely hiding the artist results in the right one being hidden as well for me 😞

    Had the same problem recently with the metalcore band Caliban. It seems we there is a new rapper called the same what really fucked me up last weekend.
    A self hosted alternative could be Plex with premium pass. It also allows to stream your photos videos etc.

    Spotify is trash. I started using it because I couldn't get Google Play Music (half-decent) for free anymore, and over the last year, their UI and functionality has just gotten worse with every update.
    It's like they're just trying to kill themselves off or something.

    Try PLEX as a self hosted solution. Started out with it for a inhouse media library, went to the point where I built a dedicated server/NAS on a dual cpu supermicro mobo. Fun times!

    If you're still looking for an alternative to Spotify, I found this on F-Droid : https://github.com/gsantner/...
    I haven't got the time to look into it for now, so I don't know if it's good, but it might maybe interest you.
    Also 📌, because I too want to find a self-hosted alternative.
