Introducing FuturePulse, a new music analytics platform for labels, artists, promoters and beyond


Music trends and tastes are evolving faster than ever, and while artists are increasingly tracked, accessing this data to make informed decisions and insights is still a difficult task for music industry professionals, and artists themselves.

FuturePulse is an EU funded project that fills this gap, creating a music analytics platform that provides up to the minute insights on artist popularity, playlist inclusion, genre classification and venue ranking. For the past three years, a consortium of musicologists, machine learning specialists, record labels and promoters including Sónar, has worked on the platform which is now in its final stage of testing.

In order to better demonstrate the potential of the platform, FuturePulse will be presenting an open webinar on October 9th, in which followers of Sónar+D can get a first look at the project, it’s many features and it’s practical applications, from getting playlisted to seeing which artists are hot in your area.

The open webinar, led by members of the team responsible for the platform, will take place on Friday 9th October at 12:00 CEST, and is free to watch here at the top right of the article and at There’s no need to pre-register, just tune in here.
