Welcome to Acid Stag; a global music news platform that is dedicated to sharing the music we love.
We receive a few hundred emails every day, and while we do try our best to listen to everything that comes through our inbox it just isn’t possible to respond to everyone. If we do like what we hear, we will get around to sharing your music as soon as we can, we just ask that you be patient and follow the below guidelines.
● If you would like to have your music considered for a placement on Acid Stag, send us an email with all assets; Soundcloud Link, Artwork, Press Photo & Press Release, and also include your Facebook, Twitter & Instagram urls (we don’t accept YouTube audio links or lyric videos, and if there’s no Soundcloud link in your email it will be disregarded all together)
*best submission formatting for everyone is*
Intro [say hello!]
Soundcloud: [insert url]
Press Kit: [insert url]
● We only focus on “electronic music” such as electro, disco, house, groove, funk, soul, dance, electro-RnB, future-beat etc. (we don’t accept any indie-pop/rock/folk etc.)
● Always start a new email for each new submission with corresponding subject-line, and do not group multiple submissions by different artists into one email.
● We love making new friends, so personal emails get our attention over automated mail-outs (we generally unsubscribe to all automated mail-outs)
● We prefer not to receive unreleased music, unless it’s for a premiere request.
● Premiere requests are more than welcome; we just need at least 4 days notice, we don’t require any exclusivity time but the premiere will need to be scheduled between Monday-Friday AEST time-zone (Sydney).
● Album/EP previews are accepted for reviewing consideration but you must provide a Soundcloud link for previewing.
● Feel free to follow-up with us but do it once only and not within 5 days of your original submission. If we haven’t responded after the first follow-up it is safe to assume that your submission has not made the cut, but we encourage you to keep us posted on your next release.
● Support the Supporters; we don’t charge for submissions, but if we do share your music across our network we feel that it is only fair that you return the favour; following our social media channels is a great way to show your appreciation, and by re-sharing our posts you will help maximise the exposure across our combined audiences, which means more plays and attention for both of us!
