Start with a seed artist (or genre) and click any artist’s icon to see related artists. Hover over an artist to hear a sample of their music. Artist Explorer automatically plays 30 second previews of the top tracks for each artist.

This fascinating tool lets you explore relationships between over 2,000,000 artists on Spotify and see selected information about them gathered from both the [Spotify Web API](/documentation/web-api/ and the Echo Nest API. This is one of the main demonstration apps for our developer tools. The source code is available on GitHub.

This application makes use of two fantastic JavaScript libraries: d3 by Mark Bostock, licensed under the BSD license and Google Gauge Charts by Google, licensed under the Apache 2.0 License.

Artist Danny J Lewis has a YouTube video demonstrating some of the great features of this app:
