If you’d like to contribute to One Week \ One Mix, here’s what you need to do.
First, contact me. Click here for the e-mail, or feel free to use the Ask or Submit features. You don’t have to stick to it, but if you can, tell me what kind of theme you’re thinking about working your mix around.
I’ll reply as soon as possible able with a proposed week. If that week works for you, let me know and we’ll plan on it. If that week doesn’t work for you, let me know which week does. I’ll try to remind you as your week approaches just in case you need it.
Weeks run from Monday to Sunday. It’s up to you how you want to build your playlist, but you should always write a little about the songs you select, how they relate to the theme, your thoughts about sequencing, etc. It’s really up to you what you choose to write about, the important thing is that you’re writing something.
Let me know how you want to be credited, and what blog or blogs you’d like me to link to when introducing you and signing you off.
It’s up to you how you want to proceed during the week, but obviously the idea is to give the blog content for the entire week. It might be nice to introduce yourself, your mix and your theme with your initial post.
You should e-mail me each post you’d like to make separately.
Please use Spotify to build your playlist. If you don’t have Spotify and really don’t want it (it’s free!) but really want to contribute, let me know early on and we may be able to work something out. For each track or tracks that you’re going to write about per post, place them into a separate Spotify playlist along with the master playlist. Number them based on their position in the master playlist. For example, if you’re writing about tracks 7 through 9, indicate that at the top of your post, place those three songs in a separate playlist and copy the http link. For each post you want to make, e-mail me the http link to the individual batches of songs, as well as the written content you’d like to accompany it. (To copy the playlist, simply right click over the playlist and choose “copy http link”).
Make sure your playlist isn’t too long. I’d suggest 19 to 25 songs. It shouldn’t be much shorter than 70 minutes and it can’t be longer than 80 (it should be able to fit on a blank CD).
Feel free to write about content that’s related to the artists and/or theme of your mix during the week as well.
At the end of the week, make sure you send me the master playlist after you’ve completed all of your posts.
