WhoSampled has announced that it has added a song recognition function to its mobile app. So now you can wave your phone at some music to find out what it's sampling. Better than having to know the name of the track you're currently listening to and then typing in its name, I'm sure you'll all agree.
"We had always dreamed of adding these features from the moment we launched the app six years ago", says WhoSampled CEO Nadav Poraz. "You can identify the song playing around you, then dig deeper and find out what other song was sampled in the song you're hearing. For example, the chorus or riff might sound familiar but not from the song that is playing, it's from somewhere else".
He adds: "Other music recognition apps will tell you the name of the song you're hearing, but WhoSampled is the only app that will give you the answer you're looking for, allow you to understand the origins of the composition and reveal the other recordings that sampled it".
The new version of the WhoSampled app is available now.
