The BBC Introducing Mixtape is a 60 minute radio show and podcast which I compile for BBC Radio 6 Music. It’s broadcast every Sunday night (technically Monday morning) at 2am and at the end of the show the whole thing can be downloaded as a podcast. The download remains available for the next 28 days.
To send me a tune for my BBC Introducing Mixtape, share it to our Dropbox group on Soundcloud any Monday to Thursday afternoon. You don’t need a plugger, a promo CD or any of the other old music biz malarky – this is the 100% guaranteed way of getting your music heard by me. It will also get considered by the rest of Team Freshnet for our Listening Post.
However for airplay you do also need to upload your track to BBC Introducing – otherwise it won’t qualify for the BBC Introducing Mixtape. No upload=no airplay
The Mixtape also includes music recommended by BBC colleagues from around the country, again sourced from the BBC Introducing Uploader.
TIP: don’t be in a hurry. There’s no point sending anything less than your very strongest work. We get 100-200 tunes every week, and there are only 15-16 slots on each Mixtape. If you have much better material on the way, then wait a while and send us that: read more here.
Unfortunately it isn’t possible to give feedback on individual tracks but I will listen to your tune – and if I love it, I’ll play it.
Simple as that.
