How musicube helps Sony Music Germany with a catalog of +800k songs

June 22nd, 2020

We are pleased to announce that we gained Sony Music Germany as one of our first customers. Sony’s unit Data.Insight:Solutions uses musicube’s API to retrieve data on moods, musical features and sound characteristics throughout their ever-growing catalog of over 800,000 recordings with many new releases every week.

“With its rich data and deep insights, musicube enables us to make data driven decisions and discover vast potentials.” – Michael Pütz, Director Data.Insight:Solutions GSA, Sony Music Germany GmbH

Sony Music's catalog, including international stars like Justin Timberlake, Depeche Mode, Daft Punk, P!nk, Shakira, Foo Fighters, Bob Dylan, Beyoncé and Bruce Springsteen, as well as leading German music artists like Die Fantastischen Vier, Tim Bendzko, Joris, Marteria and Silbermond opens a wide field for predictive analytics or pattern recognition.

Sony’s approach to using machine learning for trend analysis and market research on music and upcoming artists is really appealing to us. We are confident that a lot of great signings will result from Data.Insight:Solutions’ discoveries and are really looking forward to contributing with our API and data.
