The place to learn everything about Lexicon. Be sure to read about the Lexicon workflow.

Find Tags & Album Art

You can find tags & album art by right clicking tracks ➡ Use ➡ Find tags & album art

With the Tag & Image Finder you can let Lexicon scan your tracks to find missing information. Lexicon will update the tags of your tracks to match the best release found.

Currently supports the following tags:

  • Genre
  • Year
  • Label
  • Album
  • Album art image
  • Energy
  • Danceability
  • Popularity
  • Happiness

The album art image is downloaded and added to your music files.


Lexicon does its best to find the correct matching track but has to work with your existing artist and title tags. If these are not clean then it will be harder to find the correct, or any, match. You can use Smart Fixes clean your tags.

Original release

If you enable this option, Lexicon will strip away any remix text from your track titles and search for the original version.

Album art

To display your album art, you may need to reload tags in the DJ app you use.

For Engine DJ: You need to use Re-import track information. This reloads your album art but also all ID3 tags from your files. If you are getting old ID3 tags this way, you need to re-run the Sync from Lexicon to Engine DJ. After that, Engine DJ will still have the new album art and also your tags from your Lexicon database.

Data sources

Lexicon searches these databases:

Not every database holds the same information. This table describes which source has which tag that Lexicon can use:

Spotify Beatport MusicBrainz Discogs
Album Art

Data source priority

Beatport has the highest priority because it has the most detailed genre information. Spotify genres are more generic. If there are no results on the first source, Lexicon will move on to the second source and so on.

The order of the sources is as follows:

  1. Beatport
  2. Spotify
  3. MusicBrainz
  4. Discogs
