Muxtape Returns With a New Focus on Legal Music

We have often bemoaned the demise of Muxtape, one of our favorite online mixtape services. Sadly, Muxtape had to close shop because of the inevitable RIAA takedown notices. Now, however, Muxtape is getting ready for a comeback, but alas, it won’t be the same service we had come to love last year. Instead, Muxtape will only focus on hosting tapes for bands.

Justin Ouellette, Muxtape’s CEO and Founder just announced a preview version of the new Muxtape, which he has seeded with songs from twelve bands, including indie favorites like of Montral.

Muxtape will allow other bands to sign up in the next few weeks. How exactly the developers are planning to police the site is not clear yet.

Artist Pages

The most important addition to the new Muxtape are the artist pages, which are currently dominated by profile pictures of the artists. Otherwise, the new Muxtape works exactly like the old Muxtape – just without the ability to create your own mixtapes.

Big Plans

In the future, Ouellette and his team plan to allow bands to sell downloads of their songs, issue tickets for concerts, and sell merchandise. For now, however, we are glad to see that Muxtape is still alive and well, though we are still sad to report that the old Muxtape won’t return anytime soon.
