To start submitting, follow this link to give you all the information you need to get featured.
The key to getting on these playlists is doing your research and being diligent. Make sure you’re submitting your best tracks, but try not to send too many. You don’t want to be overlooked by the curator you just annoyed with your 20 submissions. Find a happy medium. We suggest not submitting more than 3 songs and to keep your message short and sweet. If you don’t get a response after a month, respectfully try again. It doesn’t hurt to include a question in there as another incentive for them to give you a meaningful response.
Keep your head up; there are endless opportunities to get yourself featured.
Good things come to those who wait….and those who do their research.
