I received an e-mail today from Mixwit, the company that I make all the Weekend Mixtapes with stating that they will be closing up shop after their short year run.
"We regret to announce that Mixwit will cease to exist at the end of the year. The website and profiles will be turned off around Dec 27th and all embedded widgets will stop playing before the end of December.
We’ve put a year of work into Mixwit so this choice wasn’t taken lightly. We’re very grateful to be have been part of the mixtape revival of ‘08 and are satisfied to be able to to bow out while things are still good.
We’re very sorry that this has to end. We’re going to try to figure out some way to archive the artwork and playlists, if for nothing at least historic value. As for now, everything needs to be shut down by the end of the year just to make sure we’ve got a clean start for 2009."
So. That's that. No more. I'll be looking for another way to keep the Weekend Mixtape going. So if you want to listen to any of the past ones click HERE.
The one tape I'll be most disappointed about losing is the Winter Mixtape. That's got to be my favorite. Click here to enjoy it.
I've really enjoyed making these and helping spread music all around the internetz. We'll see how everything goes next year. But, this year needs to finish up.
Thanks for reading and listening.
