How to Pitch Your Music for Trending & Playlists

By Audiomack on January 25, 2021

A quick guide to pitching us your music.

If you’re reading this, you’ve probably already done the hard part as an artist: creating and releasing music.

But what do you do after you’ve uploaded your song to Audiomack?

We want to hear it. By “we” I mean the team of expert curators here at Audiomack, and by “hear it,” I mean we want to smash that mf play button and figure out if it’s good (and whether our audience would want to discover it).

If it’s good (or great, hopefully), we might just place it in our trending sections and/or add it to one of our curated playlists.

How to Pitch Audiomack Your Music for Trending

Authenticated and verified creators can submit music for trending consideration directly from their Audiomack account. Not yet authenticated/verified? Apply today.

The process is simple:

  1. Select “Submit to Trending” on either the Trending page, or from the Manage Content page in the Creator Dashboard.

2. Only music uploaded within the last two (2) weeks are eligible for submission. This two-week window applies to all uploads, whether they are private, public or scheduled. Select the release you wish to submit.

3. Click "Submit," and our curators will internally review your music!

4. If you are trended, you will receive an email notification that your song is trending.

NOTE: Pitching does not guarantee that a submission will be trended.

Artists can pitch songs, albums, and podcasts for possible trending placement on Audiomack. All trending submissions must be new releases only. This means anything from the last two weeks.

Pitching for Playlist Consideration

Artists can pitch songs (no albums) for playlist consideration, though multiple song pitches can be made at once. There is also no date restriction for playlist pitches.

All playlist pitches can be sent to playlists@audiomack.com

The most important thing to remember for playlist pitching is that you should know what playlist you want to be on! The more specific you are, the better your chances. For example:

-If you are a lyrical rapper who made a lyrical song, pitch for The Art of Bars.

-If you are a rising Afrobeats artist, pitch for #OnTheRadar: Afrobeats.

-If you are a deep house producer that just cranked out the banger of your life, pitch for Turnt.

It’s fine to pitch a few songs at a time so long as each is aimed at a specific playlist. An example email setup would be:

[name of playlist 1] (link for song for playlist 1)[name of playlist 2] (link for song for playlist 2)

You get the point.

Pitching Playlists (for Curators)

Curators, you can pitch us too! Send your curated playlists to playlists@audiomack.com for us to consider spotlighting them in one of our Featured slots and/or our Curator Spotlight playlist section.

My music was trended! Now what? Congratulations. Now read this: Your Music Is Trending—Now What?
