Thomson.co.uk (yes Thomson Holidays) have created an interesting interactive infographic on ‘The Evolution of Western Dance Music’. The connection? Music tourism (visiting a city or town to see a gig or festival) is on the rise apparently.
The map shows the time and place where each of the music styles were born and which blend of genres influenced the next.
Hopefully there will be a v2 in the works – would love to see this with interactive elements on each ‘genre’ with ability to listen to seminal tracks that defined them.
Sad to see Nu Skool Breaks never evolved – to be fair though how can one improve on a classic such as PMT – Gyromancer?
Kudos to the Thomson creative / content team.
