How to Submit Music

Thank you for your interest in getting your music played on Journeyscapes Radio!

We currently accept submissions from recording artists, record labels and music promoters.

SUBMISSION GUIDELINES:

If you would like to submit your music for airplay consideration on our non-interactive 24/7 web station and/or weekly Mixcloud shows, you may do so via the following:

Please familiarize yourself with our station’s format and general atmosphere of our broadcast before submitting your work. We play a dreamy mix of ambient, space, downtempo, ethereal and ethnic fusion musical styles, spanning electronic and global rhythms to pure floating soundscapes, with some lush vocal tracks sprinkled throughout.

Our playlists are human curated and each track is carefully selected, as opposed to being generated by an impersonal algorithm.

Once your music has been previewed to determine if it’s a good fit for the program, hand-picked tracks may be added to our 24/7 web station and/or featured at some point on a Mixcloud show.

You may submit single tracks, extended plays or full-length albums.

We can also create smooth radio edits of "long-form" tracks (as is relatively common with ambient/electronic/space music). 

Whenever a track plays, the artist name and song title is displayed in our web player (or Mixcloud player if included there).

DIGITAL FORMAT:

Please do not send us streaming-only links since we need the actual files in order to play your music.

We accept digital files in MP3 format at 320 kbps. Although we can convert WAV or M4A files we strongly prefer that you already have your music radio-ready.

Please use a file transfer service when submitting your music.

We recommend Dropbox.com, WeTransfer.com, Hightail.com or Box.com for this process.

You're also welcome to provide a redemption code to Bandcamp so that we may download the files from there.

Please do not send files in AIFF or WMA format. We are unable to convert these.

When submitting your files, please make sure all your tracks are properly tagged with the artist and song titles entered in the correct places to help expedite the inclusion process. 

CD FORMAT:

We also welcome physical media via snail mail. If you would like to send us your CD, please inquire via email for the physical mailing address and provide a brief description of what you’re submitting.

Once you have submitted your music, please wait at least two weeks before following up with us to find out if it has been programmed or potentially will be. Due to the sheer volume of messages we receive, we may not be able to reply to every inquiry right away. As a result, inquiries regarding music which has been submitted that does not fit our playlist format, or is improperly submitted, may not elicit a response.

For all music submissions please send an email to JourneyscapesRadio@gmail.com

Airplay is totally free – if your music fits and we like it, we'll play it!
