Inspired by Londinium, and RateYourMusic's genre database & hierarchy, I've made an updated hierarchy file based on RateYourMusic's hierarchy. It's accurate as of 15th-20th June 2021, so since Londinium's file, it has some new genres (notably White Voice, ASMR and Festival Progressive House) as well as some re-organised ones.
As for the descriptor system, RYM is moving some genres to the Descriptor system (e.g. Satire, Orchestral, A capella, Holiday Music) however right now as of posting this, part of the policy regarding their genre queue is that no genres can be removed at all
, so genres that will eventually be removed and sent to the descriptor system have been given the Descriptor genre
as a parent. Like Londinium's file, I've added the Descriptor genre and it subgenres as well.
I aim to keep it as updated as possible, especially since I use RateYourMusic for genre classification (I help with genre voting when I can).https://gitlab.com/Flaky/mb-rym-hierarchy
