An Interactive World Map According To Musical Tastes

Spotify has unveiled a comprehensive, interactive world map breaking down musical tastes among a wide selection of geographic locations, big and small.

When users click on a certain area of interest, Spotify will direct you to its respective playlist. The maps selection process is determined by what Spotify categorises as distinctive:

What do we mean by ‘distinctive?’ This is music that people in each city listen to quite a bit, which people in other cities also do not listen to very much. So it is, exactly, the music that makes them different from people everywhere else.

Each playlist is updated twice per month, with nearly 1000 locations and growing featured. Take a look at the map, embed it on your own website and watch the world’s musical tastes evolve.
