Get your music featured on the site:
If your an artist/band/musician or if you’re the PR/label-represent and wish to get your artist/band/client featured on the site, please feel free to submit a proper EPK (electronic press kit) and the music (in .mp3-format, preferably in good quality, via external links or via First Up!’s SoundCloud) to me via e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org. If you wish to send physical CDs via regular post, please send me an e-mail to get my address.
Please make sure that the information you provide is correct, esp. if you are represent of the label/PR-company. If you wish the music to be streamed only/not shared, please mention it to avoid unnecessary misunderstandings.
I get around 500+ submissions/day so please don’t send the same thing 10 times in one day. Also, I only write about things I like, so if you’re a rockband or whatever that doesn’t fit my usual content of hip hop/electronic-hybrids, please save us both some time and don’t bother. I’m so sorry, but I don’t have the time to cover everything just because it falls under “music”.
First Up! has visitors from all over the world and is the perfect platform to be seen on. Please drop me an e-mail so we can discuss the terms such as rates, pricing, ad-space and campaign length.
I’m available for freelance work, please send your inquiries to: email@example.com. The same goes for interview inquiries and other press-features.
