SoundCloud => Echo Nest bridge service

On my way to Helsinki for the Music Hack Day I ran into Erik Michaels-Ober from SoundCloud. While sitting in the Frankfurt airport, we decided it would be pretty cool if it was super easy for developers to get the Echo Nest analysis for any SoundCloud track. So we put together a little prototype webservice that does just that. You give the web service a SoundCloud track ID, URN or URI and the service gives you back the corresponding Echo Nest Track ID that you can use to fetch the detailed Echo Nest analysis.

The service is deployed here: SCAnalyzer.  There’s a quick, dirty and ugly demo of the service here: SCAnalyzer Demo.  All the code is on github.

    Please don’t say that it’s not music – the danceability is almost 0.5 :)
