Can you beat the robot and find two acts who aren't linked? Probably not...
A brand new website is letting you discover just how connected all your musical faves REALLY are...
WhoSampled have launched a feature called "Six Degrees Of Music Separation", linking together any two artists in six steps or less based on who they've worked with.
Smug little robot isn't he?
So, for example, we put in Australian smol bean Troye Sivan and everyone's favourite "Heathens" Twenty One Pilots to see if there were any secret connections.
Turns out there is:
Only needed 4 steps!
The site aims to link any two artists and is challenging users to beat the system and find a pair of acts they can't link.
Of course, some pairings are just too easy...
...but you get the idea.
