Just don't go near the 'deep house' chart unless you're in the mood to get really good n' cross...
Leading online streaming platform Soundcloud
announced a month or so ago that they'd be adding charts to their
platform... and now they have.
if you visit their Charts page you'll be able to see the Top 50 most
popular tracks in a range of genres (as well as an over-arching Top
50 of everything). The primary dance music genres of house, techno,
trance, D&B, EDM, dubstep and disco are all represented, as are
reggae, R&B/soul, dancehall, trap, trip-hop, ambient and various
the downside, the "deep house" chart has precious little
deep house on it, being instead full of Ed Sheeran and Major
Lazer remixes... but to be fair that's the fault of
cynical/opportunistic/clueless tagging on the part of the uploaders,
rather than of the platform itself, so we'll cut Soundcloud some
slack on that one. We'd also question the absence of a garage chart,
but given the many different styles that go under that name
(including 60s proto-punk guitar bands as well as modern dance music)
that's possibly understandable.
