Just a quick post to talk about the Smart DJ feature in the latest release (Version: 4.0.740.0) of the Zune software.

There are several web sites that read from a database of music-listening user preferences, and display music maps based on an artist or song (, for one).

Zune has taken that one step further with their Smart DJ feature, which allows you to select an artist, album, or a song, and have the Smart DJ create a playlist based on similar songs, artists, genres, or whatever black magic it uses to determine the relationship between two pieces of music.


Diverse collection, wouldn't ya say?

As you can see above, hovering over an artist displays the Smart DJ feature.


Once you select Smart DJ, it will create a playlist and display the Zune music player window (which has been revamped and is gorgeous).


Tune in to the Alt 80's hour!


And Yes, at the time of this writing, I was in an 80’s alternative mood.

I have been using Smart DJ since I upgraded and I love it as well. It fines a lot of songs I wanted to download but didn't know the name or artist. I wish it was available on the Zune device as well.

Great article! I agree with much of what you are saying here. Zune is a beast though and requires 4gb of ram to run effectively.

I found a cool comparison article between Zune and itunes here:
