    I am loving my 822, all of its glory but especially its Music Mix and for FREE! I find it does a great job filtering through my picks...much better than Pandora.

    Here's mine after a couple of weeks with my 822:

    1- Pixies, Hsker D, Social Distortion
    2- The Black Keys
    3- Coldplay, Spoon, Jack Johnson
    4- Slipknot, Avenged Sevenfold, Tool

    Anyways, what's your mix?

    (hey mods, didn't know where to post for all Lumia users)

    I'm with LeLee092 on the Nokia Music thing. I've learned how to download Nokia's mixes like EDM, dubstep, and celtic which really isn't all that celtic at all. Are you saying its possible that I can select music from their store so I can create my own mix and not do their pre-configured ones?

    Right now I've got


    1. Ornette Coleman, Cecil Taylor


    2. Wayne Shorter, Charlie Parker


    3. J. S. Bach, Alfred Schnittke


    I tried to set up a death metal mix, but Nokia Music did not have the bands I was looking for. I think I will try again, see if they have more.

    Nice jazz mixes, i'll have to look into some of you choices. You'd think Nokia, since Finland has the highest "death metal" bands per capita, could get their hands on some good stuff. (probably not true but swear I've heard this before)

    Are the premade mixes repeating for anyone? For example, I'll start the "dupstep" mix every other day or so and I'll hear basically the same thing each time.

    Hey Verkunder, We look to add new tracks into the current mixes on a weekly basis, some of the classics/good tracks will stay there but new ones will get added. We refresh the content every Tuesday so i will check the Dubstep mix for you to make sure that it is sounding good. You should see a change tomorrow, if you have taken the mix offline then you will need to refresh the mix.

    Thank you SO MUCH for this info. I've been listening to the dubstep mix for the last half hour or so and see what you mean about the "classics/good" tracks. Maybe they just lined up to where it made it seem like they weren't changing. Can't wait for Tuesdays, now!

    No worries dude, glad to help and we are always working to improve the mixes. If you can't wait until tomorrow and want a bit more Dubstep action then try a create mix using Skrillex, Flux Pavilion and Nero as seeds, this should give you a nice little mix of tunes.

    Hey hitchhiker90, thanks for the post, i will get my team to look into the Celtic mix and see if we can get it improved for you. You can create your own mixes based on your top artists in the create feature which you can find by swiping across from the mixes section or from the home screen menu, depending on the client version you are rockin. This allows you to search for artists and then seed a mix, this will then create a mix based on tracks by those artists and similar artists.

    Hey ultralight23, We have added a metal specific genre group to the US mixes, you now have a selection of tunes based on Alt, Death, Hair, Heavy, Thrash, 80s and 90s Metal. Enjoy :)

    I actually have 6 mixes installed right now (apparently, if you had them installed when the Nokia Music+ test ends, you get to keep all 6, rather than being scaled back to 4).

    1. Underoath, Haste the Day, and The Devil Wears Prada
    2. Gwen Stacy, As I Lay Dying, and Times of Grace
    3. Becoming the Archetype, Before Their Eyes, and The Color Morale (I think; Nokia Music cuts off the third artist)
    4. Emery Underoath, and Inhale/Exhale
    5. Thrice, Emery, and The Classic Crime
    6. Emery, Thrice, and Blindside

    Haha, just have to point out that last week, my grandma actually apparently decided it was "discuss dead rappers day," despite being in her mid-60s and white. She used the terms "2-pack" and "Notorious Big" (rather than "B.I.G."). I don't like that type of music at all, but it was a great laugh.
