Boil the Frog Traces Music Evolution Between Artists

Boil the Frog is the kind of curious web-app we love to play with. Plug in two musical artists and it will generate a playlist that transitions you from the genre/style of the first artist to that of the second. How many hops does it take to get from Buddy Holly to Prince?

According to Boil the Frog it’s 15 hops–you’ll stop along the way to listen to Chubby Checker, Percy Sledge, and George Clinton. Hit up the link below to start connecting artists and discovering the musical links between them.

Jason Fitzpatrick is a warranty-voiding DIYer who spends his days cracking opening cases and wrestling with code so you don't have to. If it can be modded, optimized, repurposed, or torn apart for fun he's interested (and probably already at the workbench taking it apart). You can follow him on if you'd like.
