Relax Paris

We’re proud to announce you ‘Relax’ as new genre in Paris, the playlist will be curated by Soulist and the guys of Le Mellotron (as joint curators). They will be selecting music that crosses all genres with the sole purpose of staying cool and Relaxed. Welcome aboard guys:

New feature: Top22

Here it is! Top22! Available on both website and mobile apps (as channel). Simply said the easiest way to see which tracks from our regular 22 genres (selected by our amazing curators) are trending in our 22tracks cities! A feature we’ve been asked about for a long time. Take a peek in Amsterdam, Brussels, London and Paris to take a musical journey through the most popular tracks in these cities! For Facebook web users we have a Top22 Facebook app available.

Here’s what our CTO Larix Kortbeek has to say about the algorithm generating these charts:

Basically we take the amounts of plays, My22′s, Facebook likes, Tweets, shares and comments and assign a weight to each of these factors. We use this to calculate a score for each track. On the other hand we take away points based on the length of time a track has been available on our platform so the newest music gets a head start. After combining all factors, we take only the highest scoring 22 tracks in each city and refresh these charts every 24 hours.

This means that you, the listener, can influence these charts. Start listening, add it to your My22, share it via Facebook and/or Twitter and see your favorite track rise to the top of the charts!

Oh. Developers: you can find the JSON feeds (which could help you make something like this) to each individual city Top22 here: Amsterdam, Brussels, London and Paris. Contact for any questions or support.

Enjoy new music!
Team 22.
