Building a Music Recommender with Deep Learning

I’ve spent a lot of money on music over the years and one website that I have purchased mp3’s from is JunoDownload. It’s a digital download website predominantly used by DJs and has a huge back catalogue of tracks for sale on its platform.

It’s a great music resource and they provide a generous 2 minute sample mp3 file for each song they have for sale. The only problem is…it’s really hard to find music on the site that isn’t a new release or currently top of the sales charts.

The website is heavily geared towards promoting new content, and that makes sense as it’s going to be the new music that generates the most revenue – but what about the other 99% of tracks for sale on the website?
