    Depends on the label. I absolutely hate when people send us a tune that is improperly mixed down and/or mastered. Our label covers mastering costs, but a lot do not.

    Some labels require use of AIM, DropBox, soundcloud dropbox, or E-Mail so be prepared to use either.

    Take some time with your tunes. Make sure you have a completed product.

    Always include your contact info with the submission.

    It all depends on the label - I have signed many tracks from producers who send me tracks for my forthcoming compilations or podcast, so its worth forming relationships with the artists associated with a label.
