A while back I posted about a really badass online mixtape creator called Muxtape. Unfortunately, the site was quickly shut down by the RIAA (Recording Industry Association of America) which is not much of a surprise… although it’s a damn tragedy that a bunch of old farts wearing expensive suits still don’t get it.
Regardless, the death of Muxtape has given rise to a newly revamped Favtape that was launched earlier this summer. Same great concept but with a lot more features and leveraging Seeqpod’s API. Oh, and it very nicely integrates with last.fm and Pandora. Here’s a quick mix put together in about 120 seconds: favtape.com/cultureslurp
What I like most about this site is the squeaky clean UI (same flavor as Muxtape) and it’s simplicity which actually makes it enjoyable to discover new music.
Let’s see how long this site will last…
