When DJ’ing at Debaser Slussen yesterday, we decided to hook up the Line out scrobbler to the DJ mixer. I knew that Echonest wouldn’t be able to resolve all weird stuff we play, but was hoping for at least 70% success rate. Unfortunately we had a resolve rate of about 20%, which make our little hack project quite a disappointment. We also had 3 incorrect resolves under the 7 hour long DJ set.
According to Echonest, the catalogue is only about 150 000 songs, and until this grows substantially, this project will be put on hold.
Here’s a clip of us in action last night:
Here’s the last.fm feed we scrobbled to:
