Genres - Style Guide

Genres must not be egregiously misclassified (eg: Easy Listening instead of Death Metal).  Use the most specific genre available (eg: Psych Rock instead of Rock).  Music services may recategorize a genre at their discretion.

It is important to remember that each music service has their own genre list and their own methods of organizing and presenting genres.  Many genre choices are often converted or mapped from your choice in Central to a representation of that genre that matches a given music services genres.   For example:

INgrooves Genre

Music Service A

Music Service B

Dubstep

Electronic

Dubstep

Folk (Singer/Songwriter)

Singer/Songwriter

Folk

Thrash Metal

Metal

Heavy Metal


Despite frequent translation or recategorization by the music services, many genre choices translate directly and are categorized verbatim at music services, so it is still recommended to always choose the most specific genre possible.
