Spotify now lets you block artists

Spotify's latest app allows users to mute and block artists they don't want to hear while using the music streaming service.
With its latest mobile app update, you can quite easily make sure that you won't run into music by artists you cannot stand anymore. You just have to go to that artist's Spotify page and tap on the three dots in the top right corner, then choose "Don't play this artist."

If all goes well, the app will confirm with a message stating, "Ok, we won't play music from this artist."

The block will apply to all of that artist's own music, but will not include tracks they are guest featured on as of now. Once the block is enabled, you won't hear from that artist from a library, a playlist, chart list or a radio station on the service.

Spotify had previously removed controversial artists from curated playlists but backtracked on the decision after backlash from record companies and artists. It would appear Spotify would rather leave blocking up to users to do themselves if they wish!
