No, you do need to seed the mix somehow (genre, album, artist etc).

I've had a quick look at MusicMagic Mixer and this looks suspiciously
like MoodLogic (which I already pay for)

Can someone who's paid for this (musicmagic) confirm whether I can
just produce a random playlist or does it, like moodlogic, rely on you
choosing a seed artist or genre to base the playlist on?

cheers

Steve
