8 tracks and a few coding playlists!

Posted By Jonathan Clift on 21 January 2014

For those who have not heard of it, one of the best free music streaming services out there has to be 8tracks.com. I don't think you even have to create an account to start streaming music. The cool thing about it is that it basically works like a customisable online radio. You put in the type of music tags you want to listen to such as 'dance and party' and then it brings back all the users playlists that fit into these tags. It's a great way to find some new music as it is still relatively random plus it's totally free! It's probably worth setting up an account as you can save your favourite songs/playlists for future reference, plus if you have an account you can also create your own playlist to share with others. I guess the only downside is that you can only skip a limited number of tracks - but usually if I find I'm skipping a few then I just look for another playlist. Here are some coding playlists I listen to at the moment: (UPDATED: new one called majestic vibes, some great chilled coding beats)

Last one is a bit of a pick me up!
