Tracing The History Of Discogs

A few weeks ago, Discogs celebrated a major milestone that was eighteen years in the making: ten million releases in the database. While our mission to build and maintain the world’s largest music Database and Marketplace is an eternal endeavor, it’s important to take some time to reflect on the past. From its humble beginnings as a resource focused exclusively on electronic music to the multi-genre behemoth it is today, Discogs has come a long way!
