Of course, we would like to consider your music for review on our blog. Please be familiar with the fact that we get tons of digital or physical music every month. As we want to describe what we feel and think about your music, we need quite a bit of time. Because there are so many we, unfortunately, cannot dig into all of them. Before sending your physical (finished product) promo you might consider this. To increase the possibility of having us review your music you might consider sending us your promo at least one, better two months, before the release date. That doesn’t mean that we will not review your music if you send us the promo one week before the release date. Just send us as much stuff that makes our job easier. Please do not send us mp3 files or zip files attached to your email.
Please know the following, since July 1st, 2021 we need to pay custom clearance costs. When we receive a package from a country outside the European Union, tax and import duties (customs clearance costs) are charged. This is also the case when you send it as a gift with a value lower than 45 euros. However, we can submit an objection. But we must pay the customs clearance costs before we can receive a package. If you want us to do this we need the following evidence documents in advance.
- Correspondence with the sender
- Image of shipping label including customs declaration
- Copy of receipt/invoice
- Track & trace code
I know, we Europeans have a saying “we can’t make it more fun, we can make it easier” It is frustrating and it limits artists outside the EU to promote themselves. Af we did some study we noticed that physical promo copy (fished product) described as “CD for personal use only” or as “gift” with value 1,00 Euro, slip through the cracks of the law. If you can live with that you may think about sending us your physical promo copy to:

We are old school and hope you understand that we almost can’t accept digital promos anymore. We did get about 100 download links every week, almost impossible to listen to them all. So we prefer reviewing send physical promos. Please realize that we can’t send you your promo back. We’d be bankrupt if we did.
