As dance music continues to grow in popularity, dance music producers love to invent new sub-genres of the music. Just a couple years ago ‘Tropical House' was invented, which spawned out even more new sub-genres.
The team at The Echo Nest have created the definitive map of genres which showcases the entire musical tree of genres. As seen below, the interactive scatter plot features 1387 genres and is organized by larger parallels. “Down is more organic, up is more mechanical and electric; left is denser and more atmospheric, right is spikier and bouncier.”
If you click on any genre, it will play an example of the genre from Spotify. Get educated on all of EDM's different genres.
