NEW YORK (Hypebot) – eMusic has partnered to use the The Echo Nest’s music data platform to enhance its music discovery options. Their first project together, eMusic Radio, launched in beta today. Teaming man and machine, it includes several dozen curated programs based on emerging artists, local music scenes, and genres.
Programs are curated by eMusic’s editorial and writing staff using The Echo Nest’s Playlist and Taste Profiling engine to create programs based on 5 billion data points including artist connections, song similarity, mood, style and detailed acoustic attributes: tempo, energy, danceability, time signature and key.
"The Echo Nest has helped expand upon our team’s music knowledge base by providing track suggestions within a musical theme," according to Richard Caccappolo, CTO of eMusic. Essentially, we’ve created the audio cure for writer's block”
