Welcome to Toneshift! We are a curatorial, daily review-based magazine focused on international experimental/electronic sound work in a variety of forms. We originally broke ground in 2010, and reinvented ourselves in 2018 to present a critique of non-mainstream concepts in sound. Our readers have a great sense of taste so we always offer a selection for those who expect the unexpected.
The Future of Music Today: One Record At A Time
This is our social media. If you have a tip, or are a budding writer that needs to scratch that itch, if you have made or know of a record that is deserving of critical attention, and fits within our scope, or if you just want to shoot the s*it about anything sound-oriented:
We only review full-length recordings (30 mins +). We now consider singles, EPs and Compilations for our podcast (only). It’s always good to forward your release in advance of drop date. We listen to all submissions but cannot provide individual feedback due to the quantity received. We have a curatorial approach. Please understand that if we do not review your recording it is not a reflection of the quality of your work, we simply have limited resources.
Beginning December 1 we will require physical copies (LP, CD, Tape, SD cards) for any review consideration. An advance dl code or digital files will help us rev our listening engines. Contact for mailing address.
- Make sure to familiarize yourself with what we cover before sending us promo material (it will save time);
- Please send us digital files via email. WeTransfer or Bandcamp (w/code) are preferable;
- We do not make any considerations via streaming services.
