The BBC Introducing Mixtape goes out every Sunday night/Monday morning on BBC Radio 6 Music from 2-3am. The BBC then makes the whole show available in podcast form as a free download for the next 28 days.
The mixtape is compiled by me from favourite new tunes that I’ve heard in recent weeks. The list of available mixtapes can be found on the 6 Music downloads page – while the tracklistings and notes for each of those shows are posted on my BBC blog.
As the name suggests – all music in the BBC Introducing Mixtape comes from the BBC Introducing Uploader. Regretfully, tracks that haven’t been uploaded to the BBC can’t be included. No upload = no airplay.
A fair amount of the new tunes I hear each week have been sent to Fresh On The Net for our Listening Post. We receive 80-100 tracks every week and the team and I check out everything that comes in.
So although this is a personal blog with no connection to the BBC, submitting a tune here is the best way of making certain it gets heard by me.
If I really like your track, I’ll play it – it’s as simple as that.
