8tracks Radio is a light and gorgeous
8tracks application that lives in your Menu Bar and in very few steps you can dive into your favorite mixes.
We developed it with simplicity in mind, so searching for mixes has never been easier: just enter your favorite tags and you are ready to go.
The player is built on top of the playlist cover, giving the user a pleasant experience while using the app.
This lite version of 8tracks Radio offers the basic functionality seen on 8tracks.com.
We are working on a new, premium version, that will give you the full power of 8tracks: user login, liked mixes, history, sharing and much more. Stay tuned!
Until then, your feedback and cool ideas are welcome!
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.

We simplified the way you can pause the playback of a mix. Just click the cover artwork and the playback will toggle between play/pause.
The application now takes advantage of OS X's Notification Center to show playback or mix changes. For 10.7.x users, we integrated Growl to offer the same experience as with Notification Center.
We changed the way music is loaded for playing. Improved buffering now insures that you can enjoy uninterrupted playback even when using a less than perfect internet connection.
We enhanced the music experience even more by introducing continuous playing of mixes. When a mix ends, the next mix in the search list will start playing.
- bug causing the player to sometimes stop playing
- app behaviour on multiple desktops
- icon on retina display
- network problems and error handling
- search behaviour (deleting a tag from the search bar refreshes the list for the remaining tags)
We love our users. We believe feedback to be the most important tool helping us to improve our application.
