As batface89 posted yesterday, there are new subgenres up on the61. It took me a while to actually find them, since there's been no official announcement yet. And this may not be news to frequent genre users, but now when you select a specific genre from the homepage, the genre menu wipes over to a subgenre menu.
So far there are very few songs listed in any subgenre. I imagine that new uploads are now given the choice of all genre/subgenre categories, but old uploads are not going to be auto-re-categorized. I do not know if the artists will be able to re-categorize their songs after the fact.
Anyway, a complete listing of Genre/Subgenre for those interested:
The interesting thing is there's still no World category. Poor ZUBA! How would they label themselves in this current scheme? What else is missing that is a "large" subgenre? I know the electronic and dance crowd could add about 20 or 30 more subgenres, but there's a line where the detail gets too fine. What's everyone's opinion on the new scheme? Should an effort be made to re-tag the current catalog?
