Alex writes: From the Creative Commons blog:

For some time CC has been thinking about how to take ccMixter to the next level and looking for just the right entity to do that. ... Now, we are very happy to announce that ccMixter will henceforth be run by ArtisTech Media The longstanding participation of Emily (known as Snowflake on ccMixter) and others in the ArtisTech team in the community was a huge plus and adding to the team's great mix of business, music, and technology experience, and their great spirit and respectfulness. So CC is really excited about this transition. We believe that in ArtisTech Media we've found just the right entity to take ccMixter to the next level, but only with maximum respect for the community and adherence to the forms of openness that have enabled the site and community so far.

ArtisTech also operates the independent music site

It is easier to change the specification to fit the program than vice versa.
