Odd...
I've noticed that SongKong isn't grabbing all Styles from Discogs, though when looking them up manually, they are there in the Discogs database.

Here's 11+ pack of tracks to test:
https://mega.nz/#!9NBSyRYI!ItwaQKoVhB2bSoBt93T07vlTmRiZkyZlxUYUOsL_ylg

Only 3 of them get tagged, and within that, not sure where the extra Styles come from, when I compare it when looking them up manually.

I just search on artist + title in the search field of Discogs.
Then select the 1st result (which seems to be a All versions/Master release).
Those Styles are pretty accurate.

I'd wished SongKong would deliver those, just like it can ignore the Album and choosing the Earliest Release year instead.


Results SongKong:
2 Brothers on the 4th Floor - Come Take My Hand (Extended Version) - No Genre(?)
Dúné - Hardcore Vibes (South Bound Mix) - No Genre(?)
Hi-Lo - Renegade Mastah (Original Mix) - Electro House; Trance; House
Ice MC - It's A Rainy Day (Euro Club Mix) - No Genre(?)
Inferno Bros - Slaves To the Rave (Stunned Guys Remix) - Gabber; Breakbeat; Hardcore;
Kate Ryan - Only If I (Peter Luts Remix) - No Genre(?)
Kym Sims - Too Blind To See It (Hurley's House Mix) - Breakbeat; Hardcore; House
Noisecontrollers - Pillars Of Creation (Edit) - No Genre(?)
The Chainsmokers - Closer (R3hab Remix) (feat. Halsey) - No Genre(?)
The Riders - Bang (Radio Edit) - No Genre(?)
The Tribe Of Good - Loving You Baby (Weiss Remix) - No genre(?)

I've made sure those Styles are in the White-list of SongKong:

@paul

What's your take on this?

- Can you reason out why SongKong isnt grabbing those Styles from Discogs?
- What is your take on looking up the MASTER release (if excists in db) for Styles?
- Perhaps a good idea to implement?

NOTE:
The package I upped contains tracks that were tagged Genre-wise by beaTunes...
Which finds more, but are very random.

I did have a look last week but came to no conclusion. Had another look today and if we tried to match the whole folder in one go some songs were not matched including The Tribe Of Good - Loving You Baby (Weiss Remix)

But if we matched that song on its own the Genre is correctly set to House. It will take more time to investigate this fully, usually people have (nearly) complete albums that are easier to match.
