Shazam Unveil Ibiza Chart
It’s amazing how technology quickly becomes the norm isn’t it? When British company and successful music app Shazam announced it’s partnership with online music outlet Beatport that would grant Shazam’s millions of users access to the Beatport catalogue and dramatically improve coverage of electronic music within the app many were skeptical. Previously, the chief criticism of Shazam was its inability to ‘tag’ more obscure dance music tracks which were apparently more difficult to identify.
Fast forward a couple of years and it’s now not uncommon to see clubbers holding up their mobile devices whilst a track is playing to quickly I.D the work they’re currently enjoying. With this new found usage inevitably comes data and a new found opportunity to see exactly what people are genuinely loving whilst on the dance floor and now Shazam regularly use their unique local data to identify what are the biggest tracks in Ibiza at the moment. Using data from music fans Shazaming tracks on the Island’s clubs, Shazam has delved through the info it has gathered over the last few weeks and found the trends that have shaped the sound of Ibiza so far.
It’s a surprisingly diverse list, featuring cuts from across the spectrum of electronic music with tracks from Art Department, recent DT podcast contributor Volkoder, the mysterious Claptone and jazz singer Greogry Porter rubbing shoulders with the likes of EDX and Martin Solveig & GTA. When it comes to Ibiza, it would appear that variety really is the spice of life!
