Hi untogether - currently there's no direct way to do this with the artist/similar api. However, you can come close using the playlist API. Create a catalog-radio playlist, give the seed_catalog as input, and set the 'adventurousness' parameter to 1 ( max adventurousness should result in a playlist with no/minimal overlap with the seed catalog). If you set the distribution to wandering and the variety to 1 you should get a playlist with no few or no repeated artists too. Here's an example call:
