I recently stumbled upon an amazing website, 8tracks.com, and created a profile for myself. I haven’t been able to stop since I signed up!
8tracks tag line is, “Listen to handcrafted internet radio. Share your own mix online.” It’s as simple and complex as that. You can be a radio DJ from the comfort of your computer chair and use all of your favorite music.
I chose to go way deeper than that, which is why I can’t seem to stop. I create a mix by hand picking each song and how it will flow all together, then I choose one of my photographs as the album art, and finally I choose a title and create the album art.
People who aren’t familiar with this format way not quite understand how much work can go into just one mix. It can take me a week to finish just one. Stop by 8tracks and search for your favorite artist. You’ll be pleasantly surprised by what you find!
This mix has gotten over 3000 plays:
