About Us

We generate magic from music data

Quantone started in 2010 as Decibel Music Systems, to answer the need for digital music data.

Digital music is great – digital metadata is “less great”. There’s the problem of completeness. It looks bad when the artist is listed as “Mozart”. There are alternate spellings, artist nicknames, different titles for the same piece, and of course, the question of languages. Individually, people and web sites do what’s “good enough”, but there’s a real need for people who really get it right.

Founder Evan Stein started life as a musicologist, but made his living in IT. He wrote investigation systems for the Manhattan DA (the real people behind Law and Order), and was Director of Application Development for Standard & Poor’s Europe. Looking at the digital music situation, he saw the benefits of technology from outside the music world: non-linear, linked searching, and a scalable, “normalised” world where data is seen from different angles. This is the technology used at Quantone.

Since its founding, the company has made its mark, both with commercial clients and also with thought-leaders in the industry.

What we do

Quantone offers the most in-depth data in the music industry

For every track we store over 100 pieces of information, with links between artists, performances, venues … and much, much more.

We have researchers, an original editorial team, and deal not only with popular music, but with “difficult” music like jazz and classical.

In partnership with IBM’s Watson platform, we offer music recommendation. You get the best of both: Quantone’s hard facts, combined with Watson’s human-like “intuition” on music you’d like to hear.

What we offer

Original Content

Thousands of artist biographies, and (new product!) album reviews, by well-known critics.

State of the art search

A state-of-the-art search engine that lets you zoom in on tracks you’re looking for — from any angle.

LinkedIn

LinkedIn

Georgiana Bodgan

Data operations manager

Georgiana explores the deep underground, overground, and everything else around and about in London. She was inspired to go into the music business when Gilles Peterson was awarded an honorary degree during her MSc in Cultural Studies and Entrepreneurship graduation ceremony at the University of Nottingham!

LinkedIn

Luke Wilson

Codemeister

You would never guess that this former developer in energy trading, IT consultancy, and finance has a secret passion for traditional, North English cuisine! He holds a BSc in Computer Science-Physics from the University of Leeds.

LinkedIn

Mark Wainwright

LinkedIn

Philip Mortiboy

Software Engineer

Philip is in constant competition with Georgiana to see who has the most voluptuous and voluminous hair. This BSc Computer Science graduate from the University of Greenwich loves his music: soul, rock, drum ‘n’ bass, and pretty much everything in between.

LinkedIn

Will Langstone

Product Developer

Secretly an electronic-inspired cellist Will managed to stay incognito long enough to gain a BSc in Philosophy, Logic and Scientific Method from the LSE. You may have seen him busking Bach around Europe. Or more probably, stretched out in front of an array of digestibles in any of London’s foodie quarters.

LinkedIn

Francesco Fusaro

Classical Research Coordinator

In a previous life, Francesco was a street artist with a passion for basketball. This is why he decided to change for something more profitable, and a MA in Musicology at the University of Milan seemed the right choice. When not writing about music, he still finds the time to work on some decent electronic beats.

LinkedIn

Mina Mermoud

Japanese & french translator

Passionate about Okinawan traditional music, Mina holds a Master in Japanese studies from University of Geneva. Whenever she’s not translating our data into her native Japanese and French, she is composing or playing music for various projects.
