CAN I SUBMIT A GUEST-ASTRONAUT WIVES MIX?
Yeah, that'd be cool. We welcome guest-mixes/mixtape from people who like to put together these kinds of things. We'd like that.
Just upload your mixtape/mix to your own Mixcloud and send us a link and either title your cloudcast something like 'Astronaut Wives Club Guest-Mix' or at least put something to that effect in the description.If you're into doing more electronic, experimental abstract mixes, feel free to also submit a Cosmonaut Wives Club mix.
DO YOU REQUIRE A TRACKLIST?
Yeah drop a tracklist in your submission email and also anything else you want to tell us about yourselves/promote.
DO ALL GUEST-MIXES APPEAR ON THE SWIMMERS CLUB SITE?
Most do. Some don't. Depends how much time we have.
I PUT MIXES UP ONTO MIXCLOUD FOR FUN, I DON'T GET LOTS OF LISTENS OR ANYTHING. CAN I STILL SUBMIT?
Yeah definitely. We're not a bunch of marketing men looking for the best thing to drive traffic via 'Likes' or 'Listens', we here for the music and we're interested in any old odd thing and have quite eclectic tastes.
HOW DO I SUBMIT?
To submit, just send an email to one of our addresses below and label the subject heading with the feature title 'ASTRONAUT WIVES CLUB GUEST MIX SUBMISSION':
Finally, and this is an important one, please either attach an image or suggest an idea for an image that can illustrate the mix. If you know your way around image editing software, we need something at least 1300px width by 975px minimum but generally something at that ratio, preferably something much larger - that's around 4:3 ratio fans! If you don't know your way around photo editing software, then just make a suggestion when you submit.
