Back in March Muxtape resurrected the excitement of the mixtape via their simple yet innovative website. Sadly it was closed down last month by the RIAA.
But Muxtape founder Justin Oullette looks set to relaunch the site in a new format which will allow bands to upload their music and showcase their wares. It will also feature an embeddable media player.
After the closure the site held negotiations with the RIAA, but they broke down and Muxtape decided that it was a battle not worth fighting. It is a pity as Muxtape was a brilliant idea, easy to use and loads of fun. While it’s seems like a good idea, the new format doesn’t sound like anything new.
