Data Set Information:

* Nine audio features (consisting of 518 attributes) for each of the 106,574 tracks.
* Given the metadata, multiple problems can be explored: recommendation, genre recognition, artist identification, year prediction, music annotation, unsupervized categorization.
* The dataset is split into four sizes: small, medium, large, full.
* Please see the paper and the GitHub repository for more information ([Web Link])
