Decibel API

‘Music metadata done right’ is our motto. That’s because we provide a music metadata database that is deeper and richer than anything else you are likely to find. Through our semantically linked database we can provide you with not only who played what song, but where they played it, who wrote it and who played the stylophone solo on the session they did in Abbey Road three years later. Data like this gives endless possibilities for discovery, research, analysis and plain old geeky curiosity.

Our database contains rich data like this for 12 million tracks, from 1.1 million albums by 300,000 artists. We provide this data via a cloud based API that comes in a few different flavours depending on how much data you can handle.
