Muxtape is a website that allows you to make an online mix tape, by uploading up to 12 mp3s. Each mp3 can be up to 10 megabytes. That's it. It's really as simple as it sounds.
What you do with that link once you've created it is up to you and your browser. The beauty of Muxtape is its simplicity: no streamers, no training wheels, just function.
If you're still confused, try this sample SXSW 2008 Muxtape. (All with artists who okayed free distribution, according to one Paul Ford.)
Muxtape's layout smacks of Barak Obama is Your New Bicycle and other such giant-fonted, single-purpose websites. As with all things Interwebs, the longer it's been online the more bloated and useless it will become, until it morphs into one with MySpace. So please, enjoy this ephemeral simplicity while it lasts.
(From every website ever.)
