Muxtape has launched for bands.
We just released a major software update to Muxtape, including the ability for bands to invite other bands into the system. In addition to the bands currently on the site, we’re sending out invites to a number of randomly-selected artists who signed up for the mailing list or have otherwise expressed interest.
For now, it is not possible for bands to create accounts without an invite. Our goal for this phase of development is to grow at a controlled pace and update iteratively as we receive feedback and design the rest of the platform. We felt that an invitational system was the best way to achieve this while minimizing abuse and keeping the overall quality of service high.
Our top priorities moving forward are facilitating commerce (allowing bands to sell or give away downloads), developing meaningful connections between bands in the network (for the benefit of bands and listeners alike), and reintroducing curation in multiple forms (mixtapes and local featured artists). We have some exciting long-term plans, as well.
Today is a exciting milestone for us; thanks for your continued support and watch this space for further developments!
