Deezer Flow keeps recommending Spanish and Russian artists - I'm English and located in UK

Flow keeps recommending Spanish music. Every song that comes up I click the “Never play from this artist” checkbox but I still keep getting Spanish stuff.

I also get a few random Russian drill rap songs mixed in.

 

Flow just seems to pick songs from a pool of 30 different mainsteam songs that I don’t skip and then randomly adds in Spanish taxi AM radio greatest hits occasionally .

Hey, I'm wondering if one of the family members of your account is using your own profile…

Please check if there is any unknown song in your just heard playlist.

Thanks for the reply,

 

I’ve looked through my music history and it’s all mine. There’s a few odd songs that I wouldn’t normally listen to but that’ll be because I left flow running when out.

 

I’m getting less of the random Spanish tracks now but I still had one this morning. Not had any Russian rap for a while now.

This really needs reset button… or something. Or proper learnings, if I skip and skip same tracks, they still are playing. Perhaps they need to work on it more? Dislike button needed. Banning is just too much and cluttering on Banned songs page on Deezer app. Needs better options, if not bestest.

Hey @hpguru @usernamef 

You've made good points about this. Will let the teams know. In the meantime, @usernamef could you try checking out our new Country Selector feature? Have a look here for more info :wink:

I noticed that pop up in my settings. It was already set to UK so fingers crossed it sorts the issue out.

Another major problem I have with Flow is lack of variation. Flow knows that I really like the Smashing Pumpkins but it only ever chooses the same 3 songs (Ugly, Disarm, 1979). It does pretty much the same with any artist I like, I hear Losing my Religion from U2 at least once a day but never anything else from them.

It was all going so well then I get “La Cucaracha · The Mariachis“ :joy:

Oh, damn! @usernamef thank you for your patience on this :pray_tone2:

Let's try clearing the app's cache, and have another look at your favourites, in and out, to see if something else is dragging these recommendations.

In order to improve Flow in general, check this topic out here :thumbsup_tone2:
