Muxtape Fans Rejoice! 8tracks To The Rescue

21Aug08

If you’re one of the sad souls mourning the recent shutdown of Muxtape, then I think 8tracks may just brighten your day.  8tracks allows you to create and share virtual mixtapes.

8tracks doesn’t work exactly like Muxtape, but the idea is somewhat the same.  You can upload your own music to create a mix, listen to other users mixes, and share your mixes with friends.

You need to add at least 8 tracks to make a mix public and your mixes can’t have more than 2 songs by the same artist.  Other than that, it’s a great way to share your favorite mixes with friends and discover new music.  To see how 8tracks works, watch the screencast below:

  1. Hi demogirl!

    Great screencast, and lovely voice too.

    Wanted to point out one thing – there is a skip tracks button on the player! A new one that is more skip-button-like will be pushed shortly.

    Thanks!

  2. Hi Gordon – Glad you liked the screencast!

    I just saw the skip button…I thought it was a play button but now it makes total sense. Thanks for the clarification.

  3. Thanks as always for the screencast and for this tip, 8tracks looks more advanced, will try it out.
    Really is sad to see what’s happening with Muxtape, Pandora, and probably more sites to come.

    you can also use FruiTunes.com which is kinda like an easy to use music search site paired with the ability to make custom playlists to share with friends. you don’t have to upload your songs, so it’s much more lightweight
