Send me your demos. NOW OR NEVER!


As you may know, I’ve been doing Demo reviews on this blog every other week. I’ve been constantly getting asked when the flood gates would be open again for submissions and that time is NOW. However, before you rush to send me some of your music, there are rules. In order for you song to be eligible, you must follow these rules. If you fuck up any part of these rules, I won’t even listen to the song.
So, read and follow these carefully.
1)The header on the email must say “Demo review”
2)If you’ve already submitted, DO NOT submit again. You had your fun now it’s other people’s turn.
3)Send me ONE SONG. Pick your song that is your favorite or the one that best exemplifies your music and shoot it over here. I’m not going to listen to your whole ep.
4)This time around, I’ll only be accepting songs that can be heard via a link. So, no loose mp3’s or myspace pages. I want soundcloud, bandcamp or you can even upload it to an upload site (like divshare.com, hulkshare ect…) that allows the songs to stream. Basically, the streaming part is crucial. If this is something you cannot do, you probably shouldn’t be sending me music in the first place.
5)Demo MUST contain original production. I don’t want mixtapes of you rapping over other peoples tracks. I want actual songs. I also would ask that you budding producers don’t just send me some random beat you made. I want a finished product. If your shit is called “Untitled beat” I will throw it right in the trash.

That’s about it for the rules. But there’s more…You must also accept that I will be reviewing your music honestly. I don’t know you. You aren’t my homeboy. I may write some shit you don’t wanna hear/accept. That’s fine and all but just know it’s possible. Butthurt responses will be clowned on properly. Trust me, I’m as familiar with internet criticism as any person who makes music for a living. It sucks but it’s part of the deal. After all, you’re sending me your music so I can review it. what else do you expect?
It should also be noted that , genre wise, I’m a rap guy. I like rap music. This can work both for and against you people sending me rap as I will be highly critical of it but there’s also a chance I might actually like it. Where as with other genres (particularly instrumental music and electronic type shit) I don’t really listen to that kinda stuff. Feel free to send it but just know my ceiling of enjoyment for that kind of music is typically pretty low. Ironic, I know…but it’s the reality of things.

Got it? good.
So, send away to my email
phatfriendblog@gmail.com.

I’m going to keep the door open till I hit about 80 submissions so , first come first served. Once I hit that number, I’m shutting it down (that will be announced) and any submission i receive after that point will be ignored. Sorry to be all stuffy about this but I need to rules to weed out the people who are lazy and/or slacking….after all, this is the internet.
Okay.
Godspeed.

  1. Damn, bro-sack. I was waiting patiently, checking your website everyday, making sure I wouldn’t miss the next demo review. Here I am, home from a ten-hour day in a hot kitchen, my balls stuck to your leg and it is already closed. I wish I could sit on the internet all day so I didn’t miss all the fun. Good luck everyone. Until next time.

    • I’m gonna do one every two weeks. That means 10 reviews every two weeks. Depending on when yours was submitted (i do it on a first come first served basis) i might get reviewed this week…it might get reviewed in two months. Just know that it’s in a queue and will be reviewed eventually (assuming you followed the submission rules).

  2. This guy up here ^ saying he been waiting months lol… I slept in and missed my first class and noticed blockhead’s tweet about this so I just sent him one of my songs, pretty lucky haha.

  3. Sorry in advance, I sent you two emails, one at 12:55 that said Music Submission before I read that you wanted it to say Demo Review, so I just re-forwarded the 1st email with a different subject title. Sorry!

  4. What happened I never saw my review. Did you have one more weeks worth from last time that you didn’t review yet? You said it was accepted last time. Or was it soo bad you didn’t want to step on my balls since it’s obvious you figured out who I am
