How do I get my club reviewed in Mix of the Month?
Mix of the Month only review three clubs a month and is inundated with clubs asking for reviews. Nights need to have an interesting story behind them and make an interesting read. Simply booking big name DJs does not make you a good club to read about. Email your club review requests to our clubs editor at phil@mixofthemonth.co.uk

How can I put on a Mix of the Month night at my club as part of the Mix of the Month tour?
Contact Nick Stevenson – nick@mixofthemonth.co.uk

How do I get my tune reviewed?
Your tune needs to be signed to a label and have a release date. You then need to get a copy of it plus all its details including its release date to which ever genre editor is right for your tune. The email address is [name of genre]@mixofthemonth.co.uk so house@mixofthemonth.co.uk, techno@mixofthemonth.co.uk etc etc for disco, breaks, urban, drumnbass, harddance, electro, dubstep, bass and trance.

How do I get my artists in a feature/’Hello my name is…’ page/’Keep an eye on’ page?
We have monthly meetings to decide which artists go into which mag. Email what kind of music the artist makes, what they have coming up in the next two months, why they are hot, why they’re better than others in their genre, why we’d be stupid to ignore them, anything else we must know about them as well as a link to their music/myspace and high res press pics to digby@mixofthemonth.co.uk including.

How do I get a competition in the magazine?
Contact nick@mixofthemonth.co.uk.

How do I get a competition online?
Comps online need to run exclusively for mixofthemonth.co.uk users and cannot be part of a bigger comp across a range of websites or mags. Prizes need to create a buzz so signed CDs, merchandise or guestlist places are not enough to get a comp. Comps must be up for over a week. If you fit this bill contact bridget@mixofthemonth.co.uk.

How do I get a new story online?
Send it to seb@mixofthemonth.co.uk or sean@mixofthemonth.co.uk.

I’ve written an article/interview. Will you print it?
We don’t print article we are sent out of the blue. We commission pieces specifically each month to set briefs. If you have ideas for features pitch them to duncan@mixofthemonth.co.uk saying how you’d write it etc.

How do I get work experience?
Due to the high demand we offer fortnight-long, unpaid work experience to journalism students only. You must have a proven interest in the magazine and dance music/clubbing. If all the above applies to you email sean@mixofthemonth.co.uk confirming the above.

When is Mix of the Month out?
The third Thursday of every month
