Submission FAQ


We’re open to many genres and have various playlists featuring those. We don’t feature Hip Hop, Rap, RnB, House, Techno (and related).

E-mail and tell us what’s up!

We try to listen to all regular submissions. Because of the volume of submissions, we simply can’t listen to all submissions, let alone respond to them. We try to e-mail all artists that are accepted on one of our playlists with the good news though.

Currently the PayPal integration doesn’t allow us to redirect to our website when successfully submitted and donated. When you’re redirected to PayPal, we already got your submission 😊 So there’s nothing to worry about.

All review submissions end up in a shared Dropbox folder that we share with all contributors. Every contributor picks his/her next writing project from there.

We’ll tag you on your socials.

We share on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Reddit, Tumblr, LinkedIn, Steemit, Whaleshares, Narrative, Pinterest, Feedspot, Publc and via RSS.

If you’ve chosen the Skip The Queue option 1, you can e-mail All Skip The Queue options are listened to within 72 hours of submitting. If we fail to do so, we refund the amount you paid.
