Decibel launched its first API in 2011. Since the launch, Decibel has enjoyed success in becoming the fastest growing European company in the digital music sector. However, the massive growth falls short of Decibel's ultimate goal. Decibel hopes to enhance the consumer relationship with digital music and uncover the next generation in digital music services. In the end, Decibel aims "to become the industry standard for music metadata."
Decibel pitches itself as a leader in the music metadata space by citing a deeper and more accurate dataset than its competitors. The slick video (embedded below) on its site is quite convincing. Decibel claims to collect music metadata from all sources all over the world, including record labels and users, check it for accuracy, and compile it into the database. It’s ambitions are set high with the goal of creating an industry standard in music metadata, and why not? Someone’s got to do it!
