Current advances in music recommendation underline the importance of multimodal and user-centric approaches in order to transcend limits imposed by methods that solely use audio, web, or collaborative filtering data. We propose several hybrid music recommendation algorithms that combine information on the music content, the music context, and the user context, in particular integrating geospatial notions of similarity. To this end, we use a novel standardized data set of music listening

The multimodal recommendation approaches are evaluated for the task of music artist recommendation. We show that traditional approaches (in particular, collaborative filtering) benefit from adding a user context component, geolocation in this case.
