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.

    Good app, but can you make it possible to change the home genres (dubstep, electrk etc.) to any of the other genres

    Love 8 tracks. Can't log in which means no saving mixes or creating them. Music stops suddenly. Sometimes can't connect. Bugs need fixed but functional.app.

    Great app. Doesn't show track history. Live tile should display track name.
