Internet radio curated by people | 5m MAU
8tracks is crowd-curated internet radio. We provide a way to connect people through music and explore music through people. Our DJs share a moment in time — an experience, an idea, a feeling — in the form of a highly personal playlist -- an online mixtape, in effect. Listeners benefit from deep, thoughtful selections packaged for “lean back” consumption, resulting in more music discovery and less repetition.
8tracks ranks #3 in the US among internet radio listeners aged 18-34 and reaches 5m MAU who stream 20-30m hours/month. Two-thirds of the music streamed on 8tracks hails from Independent artists and labels, and two-thirds of music streamed on 8tracks is delivered to iOS and Android devices. Supported primarily by advertising sales, the business has operated at or near profitability for most of its history. Founded in 2008, 8tracks is backed by Index Ventures and Andreessen Horowitz, with offices in Mission Dolores (SF) and the NoMad (NYC).
