Muxtape relaunches with new test site

muxtape1Muxtape is back up and running in its new format.

The website, initially conceived to allow users to upload music mixes to share with other users, was shut down for the past few months due to legal issues. A lengthy letter appeared on the site towards the end of last year explaining issues with record companies and the RIAA.

The site’s creator, Justin Oullette, decided to take the site in a new direction focusing on bands that are willing to showcase their work on the site.

The new site, still in its test phase, features 12 bands. The site maintains its clean colorful appearance and lists bands such as: Francis and the Lights, Cexman and Dan Deacon.

Along with a few songs muxtape.com includes a link to full page that includes concert dates, concert dates, music videos and links.

Users will still be able to create mixes of their favorite artists, according to the site. Eventually the site will open up to bands who want to sign up for free.

While nowhere near as versatile and vast as the original site, the new muxtape.com shows some serious promise. It looks to serve the site’s core purpose of serving to bring new and undiscovered music to listeners around the globe.
