About 8tracks

8tracks is a handcrafted internet radio network. Listeners tune into online mixtapes of 8 or more tracks, curated by people who know and love music, streamed in a legal, radio-style manner.

On 8tracks, people can do two things: listen to a mix, or create a mix. Listeners can search for a mix by artist or genre, stream it in a legal, radio-style manner, and follow others who make compelling mixes.

  • That’s a relatively minor quibble, however, for those who just want to consume music. 8tracks Radio is a very inexpensive and high quality way of doing it.

  • The app itself is simple to use and just feels very high quality. While I noted it does very occasionally freeze this is quite rare, so feel free to download and get involved without worrying too much about stability. If you like music, definitely check 8tracks out, it could become your next musical obsession very easily.

  • In a music world ruled by computers and automated services, 8tracks is a breath of fresh air. I have listened to computer generated playlists so much, I really didn’t realize how bad they were until I began using 8tracks. This is an application created by music lovers for music lovers. It makes being a DJ somewhat of a status symbol.Now that I have discovered such an amazing way to listen to music, I can’t see myself ever going back to applications such as Pandora. 8tracks has developed a listening experience that truly feels personal and creates a much more intimate atmosphere.

    Remember the old days when you used to burn mix cds, well this is pretty much the updated version of that. There is a mix for any kind of mood you're in.You can find new music by listening to other people's playlist or you can create your own music playlists.

    One of the things I loved when I first starting using 8tracks was that I found that the playlist were made with soul, by people for people, amateur DJs having fun and sharing their talent. Now a days you can see tons of websites or apps that stream music, these sites also offer playlists for their users, but this playlists seem like they are generated by a machine. They lack the human touch of it. The way a DJ can manage your emotions bringing you to a high by combining the right songs.

    Pros :

    • If you search for an artist, you can find playlists that have predetermined lists of their songs, or you can find playlists that have similar artists. On this site everything is neatly organized, you can look for songs by genre, artist, user names, popularity or just randomly. You can find amateur DJs that have the same taste in music as you, therefore, you'll find new music to enjoy, follow them and you'll be able to find similar users to follow.
    • Another great feature of 8tracks is that the ads are on one side of the screen and doesn't interrupt your songs, and if you sign up for 8tracks plus you won't have to deal with ads at all.
    • 8tracks is a great source to find new songs and be introduced to artists you would never have before 8tracks.

    Cons :

    • The main con is that you are only allowed to a certain amount of skips for a song you would rather not listen. If you're too impatient as I am, and as picky with music as me this site will definitely test your patience.
    • I also loved when 8tracks let you include songs from SoundCloud, but now they only allow you to add songs from their own resources. If you are an amateur DJ, you know this limits the selection of songs to a more mainstream range.
