Crates for Bandcamp
Crates.co has revolutionized my digging experience for digital music on beatport. I'm finding myself having to do parallel digging on bandcamp for a lot of non-beatport content though (an area growing more and more). I would love to see a crates for bandcamp—ideally it could show in my inbox feed, but even if it was a separate feed it would be huge. Right now the browsing experience for artists and labels I follow on Bandcamp is abysmal at best. I have to click in and out of releases and pages to hear the music, takes forever.
Thanks for the kind words Ben! We’d love to integrate with Band Camp, but they don’t have an API for their music catalog.
(Crates is powered by Beatport’s API. If BandCamp adds an API for their catalog, then we can explore integration with them as well.)
@wordenbe - There's still no API for BandCamp's music. They have an API, but it's for managing user's accounts - not browsing the music on their site.
I’m not a developer so excuse the stupid question but it looks like bandcamp has somewhat recently released an API although I can’t tell if it supports the music catalog or just physical goods. It does seem to list ‘labels’ here. Still really hoping for this feature to cruise bandcamp and beatport at the same time. Thanks!
browsing bandcamp is painful
