Spotify organized a Hack Battle in the weekend of the Way Out West Festival in 2013, Gothenburg, Sweden
We had 48h to come up with a different way for people to discover music.
Sure you've heard of Indie Rock, Soul and Post-Punk.
But have you ever heard of Skweee, Moonbahton and Aggrotech?
A different way to connect, not through artists or albums, but through styles you never heard before.
Pulling genres from Echonest's API, info from Wikipedia, images from Google
and finally a brand new Spotify playlist with the Top Tracks in that genre inside your app.
