Mixtapes have been a way for rappers and producers to promote their music and have it heard for pretty much the entire history of hiphop, and they're still called mixtapes even though most have abandoned tapes for CDs and, in turn, CDs for mp3s. But there's such a glut of stuff on the market - Atlanta's Gorilla Zoe, for instance, released a mixtape a day throughout February
- that it can be difficult to have a clue what's going on. One site I've found useful for just barely keeping up with things is DatPiff

is a site for users of emusic
. Members can post album reviews
, create mixtapes
, and compile thematic lists
of albums, all with direct links to the songs or albums so that subscribers to the mp3 service can download directly "via" my mixtapes.

Mix Tape for Dead Girl. Writing a eulogy used to involve hours of revising and a good thesaurus. Joshua Allen opts for a cassette of field recordings and madrigals instead.
Found sounds find their way to lost loved ones.
