Muxtape’s In That Big Tape Deck In The Sky (For Now)

|

If there’s one thing we’ve always known to be true (and that was completely reinforced by Nick Hornby and John Cusack in HighFidelity), it’s that there is an art to the mix tape.

This is why we were so excited to discover Muxtape this year. Users could stream compilations of MP3s and create their own 2000′s version of the mix tape — granted, the thrill of creating the mix tape cover and scrawling out song titles still eluded us, but it was something.

Today, Muxtape is “unavailable for a brief period while we sort out a problem with the RIAA.” Eek! Let’s hope the RIAA is kind. If the site really does go belly-up, rest assured we’ll find a way to compile “It’s So Hard to Say Goodbye to Yesterday” with “Miss You Much”… somehow.
