It looks like you guys are doing a great job in removing all the features I'm using.
After the removal of the wonderful "Hear This" feature, I had to fallback not to "Flow" (this is mainly trash or at best a boring recommendation system), but to "Explore" where, once a while, we can find a good album or two, still far from the great recommendations of "Hear This" though.

Now, I see that the "Jazz" genre has disappeared from "Explore"... I hope it's just a mistake, right? Please tell me it is. Or will you guys keep removing stuff until we all listen to the same music, or more likely until we all cancel our Deezer subscription?

By the way, a very simple feature for the Explore section would be to allow user to sort the various genres: it's a real pain to have to scroll to pick the 2-3 genres you're always checking.
Thanks

Looks fixed, thanks.

As a feature request, would be great to have more and albums recommendations in those Genre sections.
Looking at the Jazz genre for example, outside the "New Jazz Releases", the rest is of no interest for the real jazz lover: playlists or compilations with only classics tracks, "Essential albums" that are so essential that it's useful only to the user wanting to discover the genre. Besides there's almost no rotation in the selections.
Would be nice to have something like a weekly "Editor's selection/discoveries" of a dozen albums, mixing great forgotten ones with still-to-be-discovered ones.

Yeah, still trying to find something that could replace "Hear this"... I've been using Deezer much less this the removal of the feature, looking for different places to discover new music, and honestly, seeing Deezer evolving as it is, without any true feature allowing those discoveries, I don't know how long I'll stay on this platform.

Cheers
