Welcome to Toneshift: The Future of Music, Today! We are a daily review-based magazine focused on experimental/electronic work. We broke 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 our those who expect the unexpected. Our ever-shifting focus is to offer the most diverse international scope.
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:
