Bandpage is a platform where artists upload digital material they want to publish on digital music applications. This material can be informative like biographies or social links, but also promotional.
The Music Story API gives now access through the Artist object to the Bandpage ID, also called Band ID or BID. This BID can be used to get artist’s informations with the Bandpage API. Artist’s data from the Music Story API can also be retrieved using Bandpage’s BID, using our new Bandpage object and its Artist connector.
At last Bandpage biographies are available through the Music Story API, using Biography connector from Artist object (field source=’Bandpage’).
Nearly 28000 artists from Music Story database have now a link to Bandpage. As this number evolve permanently it is available on the API statistics page. Good use !
A new video object allows now to retrieve metadata of a music video. Mainly its ISRC, duration and indicator of verification on official agencies websites (SCPP for France and PPL for the UK).
It comes with two quite useful connectors:
- The recording connector, linking a music video to its corresponding audio tracks, and vice versa. In other words giving video ISRC / audio ISRC links. A good solution for getting the official music video associated with a track, for example.
- The Vevo connector, linking a music video to its corresponding Vevo page.
The number of music video is available on our statistics page. 30,000 actually with more than 26,000 related Vevo links. Music videos objects will be now systematically associated to each new integrated track identified as a hit (see documentation of the Recording object).
As part of the Radio 2.0 event in Paris, Music Story propounds an overview of music recommendation practices in streaming platforms area, and related issues. And in reaction some approaches of radios (in France) on digital music broadcast.
Xbox Music IDs are now available in Music Story API via “artist”, “release”, “recording”, and “track’ objects. Every program using Xbox Music IDs can be enriched with the qualified Music Story metadata.
These data can now be integrated in every context of Microsoft-based development, especially for games consoles and smart TVs.
The integration of Xbox Music IDs is an ongoing process and will soon reach the level of data coverage of other platforms. You can follow the progress on the statistics page: developers.music-story.com/fr/stats.
Have a great one!
