Welcome to Toneshift: The Future of Music, Today! We are a daily review-based magazine focused on international experimental/electronic work. We are an artist-run site, and as such only here to build on the generous scene that already exists – having broken ground in 2010, and reinvented ourselves in 2018 to present the most evocative, non-mainstream concepts in sound. Our readers have a great sense of taste so we always offer a curated selection for those who expect the unexpected.
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:
SUBMISSIONS: Before You Submit Your Work!
- Have a look around the site + become familiar with what we review;
- Recommended / Physical Copies (LP, CD, Tape – always preferred) consider sending to us – contact for mailing address; for Digital files: please send us digital files via email. Files through a dedicated Bandcamp code or through WeTransfer is also acceptable.
- Remember to always forward your release in advance of drop date.
If your recording is over three months past release date we likely will not review it, but still encourage you to send it along for our archives, we are always open to introductions! 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, there may be other factors at play (time, resources, scheduling, fit).
WE DO NOT REVIEW
Singles, eps, videos, events, tours, books (unless directly associated w/audio release), fundraisers + similar announcements. We have just recently suspended reviews of compilations due the vast quantity – however we will definitely give any/all a listen.
