Totally random playlist for one click exploration of the site?

permalink   Mon, Aug 5, 2013 @ 8:42 AM
Not sure if this has been suggested before, or even exists- but I would quite like a home page button I could hit that would play a randomly generated playlist of all the site’s mixes.
I think this would be great fun for someone who would like to hear something completely different whilst surfing or relaxing with a drink or smoke.
Another issue with the player and playlists as it stands seems to be it can be hard to work out artist and track.

Any thoughts?

That would be a cool feature. Also a wikipedia style that displays song of the day from whole pool of all the remixes would be nice. Dunno if automated or someone would have to ed-pick that. I guess automated would be better feature too as there are already few thousands of remixes some stuff may resurface that hasn’t been noticed before.

I just wrote a small script to deal with this sort of.
You can select remixes, pells, samples and uploads.
In the textfield you have to enter the max number and then press generate.
Then the script will change the 5 links below with a random offset value between 0 and the max amount you entered.
Hope it is useful.
The script can be found here
