his next premiere is a series about the origin of Spotify

success is cool to tell

As we told you, there is nothing in this life like having someone to check your exploits and help make your legend of success even bigger. Remember if not what happened with The social network, where neither more nor less than Aaron Sorkin put face and eyes to the success that has made Mark Zuckerberg a billionaire. Now, there is no such clear protagonism in a single figure but The Playlist will focus on six.

That will be the axis of the series: the six key people who had a hand in the germ of the idea that bore fruit in a streaming platform and its subsequent consolidation within the music scene of the time that, in the first decade of the 2000s, lived cowered and on the defensive due to what the MP3, Napster and Pirate Bay revolution had meant and had transformed completely to the very (and until that moment almighty) industry.

Obviously we will meet Daniel Ek and Martin Lorentzon, the fathers of Spotify, but also other characters who had a lot to do with the beginning, when it became hard to try to convince the musical groups and record companies that the world they knew had disappeared and a completely new one had been born in which there was no longer the need to buy songs or entire albums, but subscriptions to paid plans or, as in the case of the Swedish platform, a free model based on advertising.

The series is coming soon

Netflix has already announced the premiere date of this series: October 13, 2022 and it will be one of those for fast consumption since it has only six episodes. Following American custom, The Playlist You will have it available in its entirety from the first day in case you want it ventilate in just a few hours that same weekend in which the Clásico between Real Madrid and FC Barcelona coincides (by the way).

The Netflix Playlist.

as you know, Netflix is ​​a platform originally created in Sweden so the series is also an original product of the country, which serves as a step to promote a milestone that directly overshadowed the great achievements that came from the United States, specifically from Silicon Valley. The Playlist is the story of an idea, how six people influenced its development and the way in which the music industry of the time reluctantly accepted that this market with millions of records sold every month had disappeared forever in a panorama full of new compatible devices. An interesting story that puts into perspective one of the key moments of the technological revolution that we have lived through over the last 20 years.
