Playlist Distribution Demo

Shows how the Echo Nest playlist API gives you control over the distribution of artists in a playlist.

The demo shows you can have more control over the artist makeup in playlists by using the 'distribution' and 'variety' parameters. When the distribution is set to wandering the artists will appear with approximately equal distribution in the playlist. If the distribution is set to focused artists that are more similar to the seed artists will appear more frequently. When combined with the variety parameter, you have excellent control over the number and distribution of artists in a playlist. If you want to create a playlist suitable for music discovery, create a playlist with high variety and a wandering distribution. If you want to create a playlist that more closely mimics the radio experience choose a low variety and a focused distribution.
