We are proud to announce our latest API update. This update includes new sub-genres, improved genres, improved similarity search, and more. For details, see full documentation here

Now let’s take a closer look at it!

New Sub-Genre Classifiers

A ton of new sub-genres were added to the existing ones. Among them: blues-rock, folk-rock, hard rock, indie alternative, psychedelic progressive rock, punk, rock-and-roll, pop-soft-rock, abstract IDM left field, breakbeat DnB, deep house, electro, house, minimal, synth-pop, tech house, techno, trance, contemporary RnB, gangsta, jazzy hip-hop, pop-rap, trap, black metal, death metal, doom metal, heavy metal, metalcore, nu-metal, disco, funk, gospel, neo-soul, soul, big band swing, bebop, contemporary jazz, easy listening, fusion, Latin jazz, smooth jazz, country, and folk. 

Improved Genre Classifier

The genre classifiers have also been improved to give more accurate results. The country, folk, and punk genres are now deprecated to be replaced by the country, folk, and punk sub-genres.

Improved Similarity Search

The algorithm powering the Similarity Search has been improved. The Similarity Search now yields better results when searching for similar tracks based on musical features.

Removal of old GraphQL API types

Finally, we completely removed everything InDepthAnalysis related from our GraphQL schema.
