Since we introduced the 'become a fan' feature on the site, 4180 users have become a fan of 1268 different bands (there are about 1400 bands and projects in our database in total at this time). We used this information to generate a 'map of djent', by linking together bands who have a lot of fans in common.
To keep things manageable, only bands with 80 fans or more are displayed on the map, yielding 115 bands in total. Click the preview below to view the map in full size.

Reference - the band formed at the end of 2013, making its’ own way in the music world. Openness for experiments with sound imposes uncommon handwriting, immersing the listener in the concept of the band. People who don't make loud statements, people who burn what they do for the sake of the listener and satisfaction of own ego. We believe that the spark of light is capable to dispel a household gloom and a dullness of everyday life. We believe in energy of space and in merits of people
Nakaruga reaches from Switzerland and was formed in 2006. The band released an un-titled EP in 2008, and it is preparing to release its first LP, Terramorpher, in 2015.
Nakaruga’s music has a predominantly “groovy” attitude, with significant addition of electronics and synthesizers.
Besides its six main constituents, Nakaruga is a community that fosters co-creation, allowing anybody on the planet to actively participate in any stage of development (e.g. design, conceptualisation, lyrics, sound, etc.).
