Thanks to TheSwingDJ Trev from Perth I recently discovered a new internet radio called 8tracks. It was founded 2006 and went online on 8/8/2008.
The concept of sharing and discovering music is simple. You create a mix – a mini playlist – with at least 8 tracks and/or you are listening to a mix, created by an user.
How 8tracks describe their vision:
8tracks believes handcrafted music programming trumps algorithms. Think radio in the 1970s, mixtapes in the 1980s, and DJ culture of the 1990s through today. DJs share their talent in taste making, providing exposure for artists. Listeners get a unique blend of word-of-mouth sharing and radio programming — long the trusted means for music discovery — on a global scale.
Please check out DJ Chrisbe's 8tracks profile. I will share every tune of the series “Song of the Week” in 8 track-playlists and some more special mixes will be uploaded soon. Follow me and you won't miss a mix!
I recommend to check out also the profiles of my Swing DJ friends:
