What Music Mattered Most in 2016?

Another year, and another amazing analysis by KEXP volunteer and Tableau product manager Jewel Loree! Below, you can explore and discover the artists, albums, and songs that mattered most to KEXP DJs in 2016 with this interactive data visualization. Sadly, in a year of so much loss, it’s no surprise that David Bowie tops the list, but what was the percentage increase from 2015’s plays? And, while Prince was DJ Kevin Cole’s top played artist, what about Darek Mazzone or Chilly? (And note, the bar charts filter down, so if you want to know which Prince Albums or Tracks Kevin Cole played the most, you can click on that first bar.) The answers to these questions, and so much more, wait for you below. Click on the tabs along the top to see DJ Stats, Artist Stats, Plays By Hour, and find out more about the music that mattered last year! (Note: you might need to give it a second to load; it’s a big visualization!)
