HOW TO SUBMIT MUSIC TO OCEAN RADIO CHILLED

Thank you for your interest in submitting music to Ocean Radio Chilled.

 

RECORD LABELS : keep us up to date with music by your musicians by adding us to your mail shots.  We work proactively to promote great music to our listeners and are always interested in new artists or new work from established artists.  Our email address is

oceanradio@icloud.com

 

SUBMISSION GUIDELINES 

 

LISTEN TO WHAT WE PLAY FIRST:

 

We would expect you to have listened to the station to get an overall idea of the style of music we play.  If you listen for a few hours you will get the 'feel' for the station. Read our feedback section to see what our listener/fans say.

 

 

WHAT WE WON’T PLAY:

 

We will not play music that is too heavy or fast, beats-wise, [nothing that jars the nerves!] or contains explicit language that is adult only.  If you have a ‘clean’ version make sure that you submit those tracks only.  If you don’t, consider creating one!  Any rapping or similar music we do not play whatsoever.  

 

WHAT WE DO PLAY:

 

Generally our playlists are populated by [but not limited to] the following:

 

ambient lounge; vocal electronic  or chilled trance [chillout/acoustic versions of EDM etc]; electronic downtempo; nu-jazz; nu-soul; R&B, ambient or chilled deep house, chillstep; pure ambient electronic; glitch; alternative, soft rock and even 'pop' if it sounds right.

 

SUBMITTING YOUR MUSIC FOR CONSIDERATION FOR OUR PLAYLISTS:

 

We listen to all music submissions and we will include your music if it fits with the overall feel of Ocean Radio Chilled's playlists.   We will try to contact you to let you know that your track/s have been successfully submitted but due to the volume of submissions this may not always be possible. Similarly we are unable to contact you to let you know if your track/s have not been successful.  The best way to know if we are playing your music is to follow our Twitter feed where our playlist is ‘tweeted’ out every 15 minutes.  We are here to get your music heard by our listeners and we know they buy what we play because of our feedback.  So if you're not on air with us you're missing out on over 108,000 listeners a month who are waiting to hear your music.

 

SENDING YOUR TRACKS TO US

 

 

When submitting please keep to this process:

 

DIGITAL SUBMISSIONS ONLY:

 

FORMAT:

 

MP3

 

 

ID3 tagging 2.4 [below this our cloud system seems to strip out information such as artist's name]

 

Include correct details; i.e. name of track and artist [no seriously you'd be surprised at how many professionally mastered tracks we receive where this infomation is missing or incomplete].  

 

Remove information you do not wish to appear on someone's smartphone or our players such;  as 'mastered' or 'MP3' or other notes you put on for your information only. 

Check your spelling and make sure you use correct case, i.e. upper and lower case.  We don’t have the time to correct this information.

 

 

WE'RE HAPPY FOR YOU TO USE ANY DOWNLOAD SITE YOU PREFER BUT IF IN DOUBT AND IF YOU DON'T ALREADY HAVE ONE YOU CAN TRANFER YOUR TRACKS FREE USING THESE SITES.

 

We recommend you use one of the following FREE file transfer systems:

 

WeTransfer.com

 

DropBox.com

 

box.com

 

WHEN WE GET YOUR DOWNLOAD LINKS, WE'LL GET THE TRACK OR ALBUM AND DOWNLOAD IT TO OUR MUSIC SUBMISSIONS FILE AND TRY TO LISTEN TO YOUR TRACKS AS SOON AS WE CAN. BY ALL MEANS INCLUDE ALBUM COVER, BIO, INFORMATION ABOUT THE ALBUM OR YOUR MUSIC AND IF WE CAN USE IT FOR THE BLOG WE'LL PROMOTE IT FOR YOU THAT WAY.  UNFORTUNATELY NOT ALL TRACKS FIT IN WITH OUR PLAYLISTS.  SIMILARLY, NOT ALL TRACKS ON AN ALBUM ARE SUITABLE BUT WE PUT ON AS MANY AS WE CAN TO SUPPORT YOU AND YOUR MUSIC.

 

PLEASE USE THIS CONTACT BOX FOR SUBMISSIONS:

 

PLEASE NOTE: SUBMITTING LISTEN LINKS ONLY, VIA iTUNES/AMAZON/ etc IS NOT ACCEPTABLE as we are only interested in music that is available to upload to our playlists if found to be suitable.  It's impossible for us to listen, come back to you to tell you what if anything is suitable and then wait for you to give us the download information.
