Disco/graph is an interactive visualization of the relationships between musicians, bands and labels.
All of Disco/graph's data is derived from the Discogs.com discography database: nearly 4 million artists, 1 million labels, and 7 million releases creating a network of nearly 70 million different relationships.

You can fork Disco/graph on GitHub.

Welcome to Disco/graph, an interactive visualization of relationships between artists, bands and labels, based on data from the Discogs.com database.
Use the search box in the right corner to look for a musical entity or click on the Disco/graph link in the left corner to find a random artist.
When the graph appears, click and drag the nodes around. Double-click on any node with a plus-sign to reveal more connections, or use the roles selector in the bottom right corner to show new types of connections.
You can also click on any selected entity's name in the lower left-hand corner to open their Discogs.com profile, or the little eye icon next to their name to pull up a graph of their musical proclivities
