MIXTAPE: The term "mixtape" (alternatively spelled mix-tape or mix tape) is used to describe various manners in which music is distributed.

With origins in the 1980s, it typically describes a homemade compilation of music onto a cassette tape, CD, or digital playlist. The songs are either ordered sequentially or made into a continuous program by beatmatching the songs and creating seamless transitions at their beginnings and endings with fades or abrupt edits. Essayist Geoffrey O'Brien described this definition of the mixtape as "perhaps the most widely practiced American art form."
