You create these location strings by drag-and-drop or simply by accessing the context menu of certain items, like albums, tracks or playlists.
Referencing to a search is just as easy:
The search URI has a long line of options. For example year, genre, artist and album. Options, or keywords, like these are written just like you would write them in the search box within Spotify, but with some extra details for reasons of technical restriction:
- spotify:search:genre:jazz - Everything in the Jazz genre.
- spotify:search:genre:jazz+dizzy - Search for dizzy within Jazz
- spotify:search:genre:hip-hop+year:1980-1989 - Hip-hop from the eighties rock
- spotify:search:artist:h%C3%A4xor - Unicode characters should be percent-encoded
