What must the press kit contain?
- Press text in German or English (pdf)
- Photos incl. credits – please provide at least one picture in landscape format ( jpg, png)
- Links to website, social media & streaming platforms
- Contact for interviews
We also accept links to Dropbox, Soundcloud or YouTube to listen to unreleased material.
May I send you samples on CD or LP?
Maybe. We love and respect the environment and therefore ask you to refrain from sending samples without consultation.
Can I send you unreleased music in advance?
Maybe. Please do NOT send us audio & video files or WeTransfer folders (see above).
What kind of music gets attention?
MUSICSPOTS combines pop, funk, soul, folk, blues with jazz, HipHop and smooth rock sounds. We mostly move far away from the mainstream and the charts. Listen to our playlists and only send us something if you think it’s appropriate.
I represent an artist as a manager, booker or promoter. Can I include you in the newsletter?
No, thank you. We receive over 50 emails a day with enquiries and information about promotions. However, we are happy to receive specific personal enquiries.
Where should I send the press material?
Everything completely compiled? Then send us an email to news (at) musicspots. de
Due to the large number of new releases, we select specifically and with care. If you’re interested, we’ll get in touch. Sometimes we’ll announce new music directly via Facebook, Instagram or Twitter. Follow us here for news.
Promoted Feature desired?
With our special formats, such as the Livetalk series on Instagram, regular video showcases, New Music Friday and the social media channels, we offer the opportunity to promote an album from the first single to the release, in addition to the usual reviews and tour promotions. Promo feature wanted? Let’s talk about some promotion and support for everyone.
