8tracks is handcrafted internet radio. It offers a simple way for people to share and discover music through an online mix, a short playlist containing at least 8 tracks.

On 8tracks, people can do two things: listen to a mix, or create a mix. Listeners can search for a mix by artist or genre, stream it in a legal, radio-style manner, and follow others who make compelling mixes. DJs upload, using the 8tracks website, MP3s or AACs to craft a playlist, add context with description and art, and publish their mix on 8tracks.com and a personal webpage.

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 discover -- on a global scale.

With consent of 8tracks, I, Gary Roumanis, am proud to bring you this unofficial 8tracks app to your Windows Phone 7 device.

    I wish I could do the same things I can do with android or ios, but it is good. Invest in building a sleep timer, that was my favorite aspect of the official app.

    Love the service. Use it on all of my devices. But this app is really ****. First of all I can't even find it by searching on windows phone store. Only way I am able to install is by searching windows phone store link on my browser which redirects to windows phone store based on the url. Another bad thing, any playlist I am playing stops playing after 3-4 songs are played. Please fix these issues. Then five ❤

    I love 8tracks, and I love this app!

    Amazing app! One of the best music ones I have found. Mixes instead of radio and the ability to connect my account through it. But is there a way to have all your mixes, not just the liked ones, on your profile?
