MUSIC PREMIERES

  • DJ Mag premieres one track per day. A track premiere includes:
  • An upload to our soundcloud page (NB: we do not premiere tracks unless we host them)
  • A news story on DJ Mag Digital
  • Where appropriate, a Q&A with the artist — make sure the artist is keen for a quick chat before you pitch
  • A tweet to announce the track — please provide twitter handles you would like tagged
  • A Facebook post — limited tracks only at the discretion of DJ Mag

 

WHAT WE NEED

  • Please provide ALL of the following collateral for consideration with ALL pitches: 
  • press release
  • high res press pics — one live image, one press picture
  • packshots
  • artist bio and socials
  • links to pre-order/buy sites if applicable
  • suggested run date
  • Full tracklist
  • THE TRACK FILE: In a private soundcloud link with downloads enabled in 320 or fatdrop. 
    DO NOT SEND dropbox/wetransfer links to music - downloads are time consuming/take up space.

WHAT GENRES GO WHERE?
For techno and tech-house premieres, send to Rob McCallum. For disco and house premieres, send to Charlotte Cijffers. For D&B, gime and bass premieres, send to Ben Hindle.

 

HOW ABOUT VIDEO PREMIERES?
DJ Mag is looking for pitches for exclusive video content (music videos, festival movies etc). Video premieres are currently set at one or two videos per week, but this quota is flexible for the right content. Video content will receive the same treatment as a soundcloud premiere.  

 

PODCASTS & EXCLUSIVE MIXES 

  • The Exclusive Mix series is for higher profile artists with considerable traction behind them. We also occasionally except live mixes recorded from venues if strong enough.
  • The artist will need to supply the mix within 10 days of commission
  • Exactly the same collateral as all pitches — see above
  • Done every Friday throughout the yeat
  • Podcasts are 60 minutes long

 

FRESH KICKS

  • Mix series for up and coming artists — you can find examples of previous artists covered on the site
  • Done once a fortnight on Wednesdays
  • Same format as the podcast — see above

 

WAX ON

  • A vinyl-only mix series recorded live on the artist's own set-up
  • Done on the first Monday of each month
  • Same format as the podcast — see above
