The vision. The industry. The law. The coder. The partner. The artist. These are the building blocks of Spotify, according to Netflix’s new Swedish-language series The Playlist, which recounts the history of the world’s largest online music streaming service, from its founding in 2006 through its imagined state in 2025. With a spotlight on each of these essential building blocks -- each of the series’ six episodes follows the perspective of a new individual, representing a different facet of the company -- The Playlist offers a thorough, if incomplete, account of the extensive negotiations, machinations, arguments, brainstorming sessions and breakthroughs that facilitated easy and instantaneous access to the world’s music.
