8Tracks has always been a great place to build and listen to playlists built by DJs and music fans like you, based on genre, mood, or anything else you could tag. Now the service has a new design, with more focus on suggesting playlists to you based on what you like and highlighting the site's wealth of talent.
Long time 8Tracks users will find a lot to love about the new design. The changes aren't so jarring that you won't be able to find the features you're used to — but what you will notice is that as you listen to playlists, explore tags, and fire up old favourites, the suggested playlists on the main page will change to reflect your listening habits.
The new interface is also designed to bring more attention to the DJs that use 8Tracks as a platform for original produced music and mixes, and a simpler search interface that makes it easy to search by tag, activity, mood, or genre. It's even easier to search by artist now.
The new 8Tracks is actually rolling out slowly over the next few weeks to the whole community, so if you don't see the update right away, don't panic. Eventually you'll be able to toggle between the old and new layout, and then the new layout will flip over for everyone, including updated behind the scenes suggestions on the iOS and Android apps.
