We got some nice coverage from HypeBot
“Remember pouring over album liner notes to learn who played that great sax solo on the new Stones album? OK maybe you’re too young for that, but there have probably been times when you wanted to learn more about the track you were listening to.
New startup Decibel tries to solve that problem by replacing the usual title, album cover art, artist name, and track length with 150 fields of metadata including things like background singers, genre, and production assistants. With the data Decibel can also offer sophisticated music discovery service that relating tracks “three dimensionally” rather than just by artist, genre or beats.”
Nice, simple, and to the point. It’s our experience that it doesnt matter if the listener is an 18 year old pop fan, or a 50 year old jazz fan… everyone is obsessive about the music that they like – and that’s a positive thing.
Our 3D data will be available to business via API and we’re planning on a (slightly-limited-but-better-than-anything-currently-out-there) Open API in the coming months.
