// Contact Us

If you are contacting The Kitchen to submit your music or other content for posting consideration, please make sure you read this first (update: even if you think you know the score, please read this again as we have updated our guidelines as of mid-Nov. 2017):

There are two preferred ways to contact us: 1. use the Contact Us form below which sends messages to the Kitchen email (which has become so inundated that I am not gonna post the direct address here and make it even worse!) and 2. via our Facebook page. Truth be told, I get to the Facebook a much quicker than the contact form messages nowadays but both get reviewed eventually.

Emailing my day job or personal Gmail account, submitting via Soundcloud, hitting our personal Facebook pages, ‘@-ing’ us on Twitter, DM-ing us via Twitter or any of our Instagram pages are not the move though. Messages via any of these channels, particularly any DM’s or emails to work address, will be ignored and deleted unless we specifically requested you do it and/or we happen to know you or you get real lucky. Sometimes you might catch us in a charitable mood or on those very rare occasions where things are slow and we have some spare time on our hands and are feeling curious enough to click. The Soundcloud inbox is actually checked but only very sporadically. Bottom line: don’t count on any of those things happening, act right and submit via the contact form or our Facebook page.

Please include the following in your submission message:

1. A brief bio of what you and your track are about. One short paragraph is more than plenty!
2. A Soundcloud, Bandcamp or Audiomack link to your track (these are preferred to other similar streaming platforms)
3. A press pic and the song artwork and any other cool visuals as we are now cross-posting the blog post to our Instagram and Facebook.
4. All your relevant socials (FB, twitter, IG etc.)
5. Links to your music on streaming platform (at minimum, Spotify, Apple Music AND Tidal, our preferred platform) are welcome but only in addition to one of the platforms listed above in #2
6. For placement on HypeMachine, MP3 files are welcome if none of the platforms above can be accommodated. The file will not be posted for download unless you explicitly want us to do so and clearly can prove you retain the rights or can secure the permissions for us to do that.

Video can be submitted (YouTube, Vimeo etc.) but please include a Soundcloud, Bandcamp or Audiomack links also still (unless you are doing option #6 above). It will help drive traffic for your music, trust me!

Files for short (1 minute or less) video trailer/ad/promo clips are also welcome for Instagram posting purposes (see #3 above).

Mixtapes, EPs and full length albums can also be submitted (streaming links, ideally Soundcloud, please) but only if you highlight some focus tracks or singles to check out from them. There are not enough hours in the day, especially if we never heard of you before and chances are that is the case even if you’ve already caught a little love from some other ‘tastemaker’ rap site that you think is relevant and makes you think you’re ‘known.’

If we like your music and have time, we will post it, eventually. We do our best to answer all emails but, due to the large volume of correspondence we receive every day and the fact that the editors have a life beyond this blog, cannot guarantee a response to every message, positive or negative. We have also taken a strong turn in preference as of late to supporting talent local to our native hometown (Toronto) and country (Canada) but are still posting music from elsewhere if we dig it.

Not doing music? We are open to covering fashion, technology & lifestyle events, products and services via the DIFFERENT KITCHEN platforms as well as our sister lifestyle Instagram page, THE IN CROWD. Contact us for further details if you think you have something we might be interested in.
