Toneshift celebrates our 10th Anniversary in February 2020! Our site defers back to toneshift.wordpress.com at that time as our main focus is now our podcast. We are an artist-run program, a community, so remember to tell a friend (follow, share, re-post, etc.). Between 2010-2019 we have been known as a daily review magazine, presenting a critique of non-mainstream concepts in sound. Toneshift‘s shift in our format will focus on offering a curatorial selection of international experimental/electronic sound work in a variety of forms. Expect the unexpected.
The Future of Music Today: One Record At A Time
This is our social media. If you have a tip or 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. Contact for mailing address:
Things have changed. As of 2020 our primary focus is exclusively on our podcast. Make sure to familiarize yourself with what we cover before sending us promo material. We consider any length recording or collections, singles, EPs and compilations. It’s always preferable to receive physical copies (LP, CD, Tape, SD cards) for full consideration, plus we have a decent archive that will one day be donated to a non-profit library. We will continue producing a weekly show (every Wednesday) as well as various weekend podcasts including our weekly Guestmix series (Saturdays) + monthlies: Label Spotlight, and Bleaeck (dedicated to drone). We will also occasionally present one of our sub-series: Origins, which digs up obscure cult classics. Shows range between 30 minutes to an hour in duration.
Please also remember to forward your release in advance of drop date, so we can help generate some buzz. Send us digital files via email, WeTransfer or Bandcamp (w/code). We do not consider via streaming services. 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 feature your work, we may next time and it is not a reflection of the quality of your work, we simply have limited resources.
