Genius Mixes Equivalent with iTunes Match

Itunes match removed genius mixes - Suggestions for music discovery/playlist creation apps that work with my music.

So I've signed up to itunes match, and it uploaded my ~8000 songs to the cloud. But it also removed the 'genius' and 'genius mix' functionality from my iphone.

I miss the serendipity I had with selecting a random song, hitting "genius" and rediscovering some of the songs I had forgotten I have. Sort of a local Pandora.

So I am looking for apps that can do this, ideally on the iPhone, with iTunes Match enabled. Do they exist ? Do you have recommendations ?

Best answer: Not quite the same as Genius mixes, but I've played around with Moodagent and it works pretty well for making mixes.

Google Music does that, too with automatic playlists.

Response by poster: Thanks, FreezBoy, Mood Agent looks the closest to what I'm looking for, going to try it for the next few weeks, see if it sticks. It seems to work for some non-english songs too, although it's a little bit slow when the songs are not stored locally.

empath: Unfortunately, I'm in Europe, so Google Music is not available for me at this stage...
