Mixcloud Releases The Top Genre By US State – And It’s Not Quite What You’d Expect

Online music streaming service and creative Mixhub has released quite the conversation starter for 2018: a list of the most popular genres across the U.S. states over the course of 2017.

Some notable listings: house music reaches the top in Alabama, George and Maryland to name a few. The subgenre – one of our team’s favorites – of Deep House wins in spots like Montana and Iowa, Ambient took over in Kansas and Louisiana and the mainstay EDM won in Maine and Missouri.

Mixcloud’s Director of Content and Co-Founder, when commenting on the data, said:

“This data not only shows how much amazing and fascinating content lives on Mixcloud, with an increasing amount of it exclusive to Mixcloud, but also the diversity of it, from reggae and hip-hop to political Podcasts and work-out mixes.  The breadth of Mixcloud’s content, as well as the scope of its reach, will only continue to expand heading into 2018, with many more incredible exclusives on deck.  We couldn’t be more excited to kick-start the new year.”
