Beatport Plugin


As of October 2013, Beatport has closed their API. We’ve contacted them to attempt to gain access as a “partner.” Until this happens, though, this plugin won’t work.

The beatport plugin adds support for querying the Beatport catalogue during the autotagging process. This can potentially be helpful for users whose collection includes a lot of diverse electronic music releases, for which both MusicBrainz and (to a lesser degree) Discogs show no matches.


To use the beatport plugin, first enable it in your configuration (see Using Plugins). Then, install the requests library (which we need for querying the Beatport API) by typing:

pip install requests

And you’re done. Matches from Beatport should now show up alongside matches from MusicBrainz and other sources.

If you have a Beatport ID or a URL for a release or track you want to tag, you can just enter one of the two at the “enter Id” prompt in the importer.
