Icon14 IDMf Artist Demo Submission Info

Due to an incredible flow of demos getting delivered to us on daily basis, we have decided to publish some guidelines on this page, to help you out on how to deliver demos the best way.

General Information
When sending a demo, be advised that we might not give you any feedback on your demos.
The main reason for this is only because we are getting too many demos supplied, and we can't answer back everybody. All demos that we receive get listened to, and only those who we feel are interesting for us, will be answered back.

Sending Demos
The best way to send a demo is to send an email with a download-able link(s) to [Only registered and activated users can see links. Click here to register]

When sending it via web-based digital content delivery services, please only use Dropbox, YouSendIt, Sendspace or other easy to use services. If you send demos via [Only registered and activated users can see links. Click here to register]
, then allow download option on your track(s) and send us [Only registered and activated users can see links. Click here to register]
via email. Do NOT use some of other websites that work with waiting times, and download limits, which make it very user unfriendly for us to download these files. Again make sure it's private! we don't want to be releasing music that's been out to the public already!

Specifics
Complete track(s) need to be send over in 320kbps. When you are sending more than 1 track please archive your tracks by using Winzip or Winrar. Do NOT attach your tracks to the actual mail that you sending, this blocks and limits our email traffic. Make sure the tracks include your full artist, track and contact details so we have no troubles contacting you in case we want to. Will be nice if you include your biography, discography and your photography with your web site or social networks links if you have, and also your forum username and of course only the tracks you want us to consider for release.

If you want to send something for us to listen to, please pass it along to [Only registered and activated users can see links. Click here to register]
, with the subject reading: Demo

Please understand that due to a large amount of submissions we receive we cannot provide feedback. Use the Listening Booth for that.


Thanks and look forward to hearing your music!

Re: IDMf Artist Demo Submission Info

no, as this is pretty much a copy/paste of the old one with a few changes. it's easy enough to send a link these days, plus attachments can be dubious sometimes if they're unsolicited

Re: IDMf Artist Demo Submission Info

Btw, I have a question. Would it be safe to say, that the IDMf net label, is more geared towards, the styles, that I've been hearing most often here.

From the last few albums I've checked out, since joining, each release seems very unique. And not typical mass EDM, unless I've just not surfed around enough.

Re: IDMf Artist Demo Submission Info

How long is the open submission going on for? Also what genres are more likely to get chosen and what genres do you guys look for overall? I have a great remix I want to submit but I need to get my post count a bit higher.

Re: IDMf Artist Demo Submission Info

tbh, it's noty anytyhing about genre. although your typical trance and brostep is much less likely to be even bothered with considering they're more of a mainstream electronic music. also, sending in one track really doesn't get anywhere. it's totally pointless if you consider that we only get a couple of individual tracks in and what are we supposed to do with them exactly?

you're much better off putting together a demo of 4 tracks or more in one set or easily downloadable link (no waiting times) and providing as much info about you, your music and the tracks as possible.

Re: IDMf Artist Demo Submission Info

If they choose to accept the demo does that mean the artist is now a part of the team/label?? Or does it just mean that those specific demos will be released through the label?

Re: IDMf Artist Demo Submission Info

I mean that if the demos are accepted, does the artist become an official artist of the label?? Or do the tracks just become official tracks of the label?

And I love the dancing bananas

Re: IDMf Artist Demo Submission Info

well yeah you become an artist releasing on the label obviously. there's no such thing as an offical IDMf label artist, just artists that have and do release some of their work on the idmfnetlabel. i really dont get what difference it makes tbh
