When you load up the page in your browser, you’ll be greeted with a massive wall of colored text links. Each one represents a specific genre of music. There’s everything from “Taiwanese pop” to “dark psytrance” to “Danish jazz” to “vapor twitch” to “Brazilian gospel” to “funk rock” to “discofox” to good ol’ fashioned “hip hop.” With more than 1,500 different music genres mapped, it’s all there.
If you hover over one of the genres, you’ll be given an example of an artist and song that exemplifies the genre’s sound. If you click that link, it will even play that song example for you. As you explore, keep in mind that scrolling down will have music that’s more organic, up will be more mechanical and electronic, left will be denser and more atmospheric, and right is spikier and bouncier.
But wait, there’s more! When you hover over a genre, you’ll also see an arrow to the right. If you click that arrow, you’ll be taken to a new page that lists all the artists that fit in that genre, each with their own examples. If you click the arrow on one of those artists, you’ll be taken to Spotify where you can listen to that artist’s library
Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, or even use Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for MakeCode, CircuitPython, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
