Jaxsta Limited (ASX: JXT) has launched an open beta of its music database platform.
Founded in 2015 by Jacqui Louez Schoorl and Louis Schoorl, Jaxsta is positioned to be the world’s largest source of official credit information (content-owner supplied, not crowd-sourced) for artists, musicians, songwriters, producers, engineers and other members of the music community.
Upon the launch of its open beta, Jaxsta’s comprehensive database of official music credit information contains more than 100 million credits across 25 million webpages, reflecting the music credits of 19 million recordings. This includes 5 million individual production credits; 4 million profiles (individuals, groups, companies and organizations); 2.5 million album/single/soundtrack releases; 2.5 million individual credited recording engineers; and 1.9 million credited individual songwriters. As a constantly growing database, Jaxsta expects to increase the total number of credits within the platform by 30% before the conclusion of its open beta.
Jacqui Louez Schoorl, Jaxsta’s Chief Executive Officer said, “Jaxsta was created to meet the need for a globally recognized comprehensive database of official credit information. With the launch of our open beta we are proud to unveil what promises to be the world’s largest source of official music credit information, and the platform which gives artists, musicians, songwriters, producers, engineers and all involved with the creation of music ‘credit where credit is due.’ 2019 is a big year for Jaxsta as we are on track to bring another much-needed tool to the music industry with Jaxsta Pro.”
Jaxsta ensures that the creatives and music businesses involved in the production and release of recorded music receive the credit attribution that people once found on a record sleeve. Plus, the platform gives music fans a revolutionary tool for discovery with a previously unavailable level of access to credit information.
