In this partnership, we are making it easier for developers to use The Echo Nest and the Deezer APIs together to build music applications. Deezer has a deep catalog of millions of tracks that can be embedded in your application (full streams for subscribers and 30-second samples for non-subscribers). We think the combination of Deezer’s deep catalog with The Echo Nest’s deep music data will open the door to some amazing music applications.
In the partnership, we are adding support for Deezer artist and track IDs to all of our APIs via our Project Rosetta Stone. This means that you can use Deezer artist and track IDs with any Echo Nest call, and each Echo Nest API method can be configured to return Deezer IDs. Our approach with Rosetta Stone eliminates the slow and error-prone manual mapping of one ID space to another, which would otherwise need to be done if you wanted to work with both APIs.
As an example, we’ve created a little playlist demo that uses the Deezer and The Echo Nest APIs together to create playlists you can listen to in your browser.
