If you're reading this right now, we want to thank you—yes, you specifically—for your contribution to the 8tracks community, whatever it may be. We couldn’t do this without you. (And frankly, why would we even bother?) It’s important to us that you know that.

From the hundreds of thousands of dedicated DJs who’ve created playlists over the years, to the millions of listeners who give them purpose by playing, commenting on, and sharing those handcrafted gems every day, to the tens of thousands of investors & subscribers who’ve rallied to help us keep this dream alive...you truly are an awe-inspiring group of people.

It’s possible, likely even, that you fit into all of the above categories, or maybe only one. No matter really, as each is essential to what we do. The important thing is, you’re one of us, and we’d like to express our sincere appreciation for your part in cultivating and nurturing a community of music lovers that’s unlike any other.

It isn’t without its struggles, as you well know, but we’re incredibly proud of what we’re able to accomplish together. It’s quirky, silly, sexy, angsty, happy, hopeful, loving, haunting--and so much more! It’s you, and it’s us, and it’s nothing short of amazing.
