Helping friends find their “Next Favorite Song” Since 2005
What is The Mixcast?
The Mixcast curates monthly Spotify playlists that help you discover eclectic new music across multiple genres.
The Mixcast strives to create eclectic playlists that are unlike anything you’ll hear on the radio or your standard Spotify lists.
We believe that “Algorithmic Discovery” in both music and app stores is broken. There’s simply too many new songs and apps out there. So instead, we all get recommendations based on mass preferences or paid placement.
TheMixcast.com helps you discover hidden gems via this weekly Newsletter and our subscription-based Spotify App. You can count on us to help you discover “Your Next Favorite.”
Our plan is to keep the newsletter free for as long as possible. That said, if you want to use the same discovery tool that I use to create my monthly playlist, I hope you’ll consider supporting me by also subscribing to the app.
Some fun facts about the Mixcast include:
- First Playlist: 2005
- Playlists Shared: 150+
- Artists Featured: 3000+
- Songs Featured: 3500+
- Spotify Followers: 1250+
The Mixcast was one of the first playlists online. Over the past 15 years, we’ve shared our digital mixtapes with friends using MP3s, then Podcasts, and now Spotify.
Who Runs This Site?
It is still owned and operated by its founder, Pete Christianson. After years of being inspired by what he heard on KCRW’s famous “Morning Becomes Eclectic” radio show in Los Angeles, Pete started creating his own Mix CDs and Podcasts in 2005.
Why should you become a Mixcast member?
As a subscriber, you’ll also get an email that highlights our 7 favorite new releases of the last week, plus access to our playlist archives.
Your support helps pay for operational costs, time needed to review countless songs every month, and ensures The Mixcast can continue on as a leading music discovery site for thousands of artists and followers around the world. Thanks for your consideration!
