This is an old revision of this dataset, as edited at July 20, 2011, 15:27 (UTC). It may differ significantly from the current revision. Artists:


This service provides an RDF representation of music artists and their similar artists based on the API. Responses are linked with identifiers from package:bbc-music as well as with package:dbtune-musicbrainz.

RDF representations are designed using the Music Ontology and MuSim the music similarity ontology.


The size and link statistics are wild guesses. Googling for artist pages yields ~5M results. We assume that each one has ~50 triples and one outlink each to package:dbtune-musicbrainz and package:bbc-music.
