What's the Most Popular Genre In Your State? Mixcloud Reveals...

What type of music does your state love the most? Mixcloud apparently has the answer. 

Everybody has their scene. Some cities may have more diverse shows than others but regardless of where you live, you have a scene that you support. Depending on market, where you live could actively support one type of music or all types of music. If you were curious what your area preferred in musical taste, you're in luck. 

Popular steaming platform, Mixcloud, has done a study on the popular genre of music in each state based off of the data collected by their users over the last year.  Depending on where you live, the results may surprise you.  

For example, would you have guessed that Utah's favorite genre of music is "Psychedelic"? Or "Electro Swing" for Wyoming? Yeah, me either. A map with results for all of the states can be found below.

In response to the study, Mixcloud's Co-Founder and Director of Content explains the the results of the study. 

“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.”
