From October 2009 we have uploaded Spotified versions of our Synthetic playlists, so that you can now listen and dance to the sounds of Offbeat in the comfort of your own home or office using Spotify. Playlists that have been Spotified are marked with a [S] in the index below. Note that Spotified Synthetic playlists do not contain every track played - parts of each playlist seem to be too obscure or too up-to-date for the Spotify catalogue at present.

Thanks to Kate Collie for her help in producing the Spotified playlists that are currently available. If you would like to volunteer to Spotify the playlist for one or more of the past Synthetic nights yet to be Spotified, that would be great - drop me an email on the usual address!
