Tomahawk ~ Metadata Based Player


Tomahawk is a free multi-source and cross-platform music player. An application that can play not only your local files, but also stream from services like Spotify, Beats, SoundCloud, Google Music, YouTube and many others. You can even connect with your friends’ Tomahawks, share your musical gems or listen along with them. Let the music play!

Tomahawk is basically a player for music metadata. At its core it decouples the metadata about a song from the source and reassembles it for each user based on their individual music accessibility and rights. In short, given the name of a song and artist, Tomahawk will find the right source, for the right user at the right time. This fundamentally different approach to music enables a range of new music consumption and sharing experiences previously not possible.

Music Sources:

  • Local music library (MP3, Ogg, FLAC and many other formats)
  • Networked music libraries (other connected computers)
Subscription Music Services
Free Streaming / Music Promotion Platforms
Network/Cloud storage

Third party-developed resolvers have also been written for services like YouTube, Qobuz and others. We’ve also heard of digital music distributors writing their own for their internal CMSes to help them navigate and preview their content. That’s cool.

DiscogsToSpotify ~ Playlists From Collections


Both Discogs and Spotify offer a Web API for Third Party Applications like this one. After logging in with your Spotify account, you will be asked to provide a Discogs username. Using the Web APIs, we will query the public collection of the given user and try our best to match each release from the collection to an album on Spotify. The result will be stored for you inside a newly created playlist in your Spotify account.
