Hey,

I'm french and I've subscribed to Deezer France, however Deezer still suggesting me many french songs I do NOT want to hear !
I mean, even though I'm french it doesn't mean i want to listen to all the s*** the french music industry is producing !

Even though I click on "Do NOT recommend me this artist", I keep hearing the same songs all over again ! it's driving me INSAAANNEE

Moreover, how can I set preferences on the kind of music I want ?? (Language, Region, etc..)

Thanks

Hi @den5431 sorry about that. If you block the song 3 times it should stop playing this song. is this happening with a specific artist or just with one song? Can you tell me which one this is?
It's happening with artiste "Adèle" title "Balance ton quoi" and other French "rap artists" like "Maitre Gims" and others.
How can I stop Deezer from playing me french songs altogether ?
Also I want to mention that the button "Do not recommend me this song" is NOT available for those songs.
I really feel like those songs are put into my ears by force for some reason it's very irritating.

Same experience here, Flow is useless, just don't use it and that's it 🙂.
I also tried to use it for some time, the only results I got are frustration and awful mood, in times when I wanted to listen to something on the go. It just keeps repeating the same tracks time and time again, making you hate "favorite" tracks with time, as a bonus it brings in music either from my region which is absolutely disgusting, or just awful mainstream tracks, loosely tied to styles I like 😂.. and don't even get me started on disliked tracks 😑.

So, yeah, I can confirm, it's a usual thing for the Flow to work as you describe. It doesn't get smarter, it doesn't bring you new good music, it doesn't like diversity in styles and extremely limited and rigid. There is no way to make it work better, I tried all the suggested ways, and it seems that it can get only worse 😄. There is no "preferences" menu or anything similar, you can't customize anything, regions you want to hear, amount of repeated tracks, amount of "favorite" tracks in queue, how wide the field of recommendations is and so on.

"Hear This" was pretty good for casual listening and discovering new music, I'd suggest to try it, but now it's gone. So the only way that comes to mind is to look up new artists/albums on Last.fm or similar website and then assemble "one time use" playlists on deezer. But it's not that convenient and probably time consuming. I, personally started to use different services, that allow to actually enjoy music

Hi there @den5431

Sorry about that. In order to be able to exclude music from a specific country, you need to vote for the feature to be implemented. This can be done here.
If you use Deezer on a PC/Mac it is easier to block an artist as a whole. Let me know what device you use 😉

Blocking an artist does NOT work. I've just listened to Flow on a PC and it played dozens of tracks and artists that I have told Deezer I don't like and they just keep on coming back like a sh*t that won't flush.

There's only one way to ensure that Flow won't drive you totally insane with its absolute crapness and that's to never use it. EVER!

Thanks, so I'm not the only one !!!
