I was initially attracted to the website by the aesthetics of the design and intrigued by the multitude of cassettes on display.
After a few clicks I realised that Mixibits.com is simply a music sharing site dedicated to restoring the love for the old mix tape, Itís about finding music, compiling a tape and sharing with people.
I know there are many other sites that offer the same service as mixbits but by the shear genius of including cassette tapes as a visual medium makes it that much more awesome. It really takes me back to the good old days of recording tunes by holding up a tape deck to the radio and later on, badly mixed rave tapes on my £200 direct drive turntables and mixer with the sticky cross fader. Even the search function for some reason reminds me of flicking through my hefty vinyl collection.
