Dataset Open Access
The Beatport EDM Key Dataset includes 1,486 two-minute sound excerpts from various EDM subgenres, annotated with single-key labels, comments and confidence levels generously provided by Eduard Mas Marín, and thoroughly revised and expanded by Ángel Faraldo.
The original audio samples belong to online audio snippets from Beatport, an online music store for DJ's and Electronic Dance Music Producers (<http:\\www.beatport.com>). If this dataset were used in further research, we would appreciate the citation of the current DOI (10.5281/zenodo.1101082) and the following doctoral dissertation, where a detailed description of the properties of this dataset can be found:
