You might want to try scrobbling to last.fm to get recommendations based on your taste.

check out my last.fm nodes script, helps you find related tracks in your library, and has a dj mode to automatically play similar tracks

Teknojnky's Last.fm script is awesome. I use it all the time and it's a great way to listen to your favorite music in your library (especially if you have a large library).

You can also configure it to play tunes you haven't ranked as a way to explore your music collection. Here's how I have it set up to do that: http://djsizzly.com/content/finding-coo ... ediamonkey

A huge thanks to Teknojnky!

Nice site!

Maybe you could post about it in the "news and other stuff" subforum.
(if you haven't done it yet)


@ stax76:
Also maybe you could check MonkeyRok. It can display a panel with similar artists.
Very handy!

last.fm appear to be a nice site though it's not as effective to what I usually do, that is:

Add new unknown tracks to MediaMonkey, rate the new tracks and add the tracks rated with 0 stars to a special list, now when I add more new unknown tracks I can check if there are tracks already rated with 0 stars so I never have to listen to the same weak track again. I'm doing this with a little script, my 0 stars list has 16000 tracks. :o

This list is a flat text file so the tracks are not in the MediaMonkey database.
