We're a very friendly and approachable bunch, so feel free to contact us about your coming projects. Here are some ideas to consider when approaching Kmag or other media for news and features.


For us, email is preferable to phone calls. We ask you to put everything in writing so that we can relay information to our writers accurately.

Kmag and most other good news sources re-write press releases, so don't worry about your writing skills, we just need the facts from you.

Don't get bogged down writing about your history, the important information is your forthcoming news, the stuff you have planned or what is about to happen.

Attach low-res images (2 or 3), check the size commonly used on the site, then you won't have to send huge images through.

Attach links to tracks you are promoting ie Soundcloud or Sendspace, rather than sending vinyl or CD.

Include all your social links like Twitter, Facebook, SoundCloud and YouTube.


Magazines love exclusives, it helps us distinguish ourselves from other media. If we get the information first we are more likely to use it than if you have already posted it on lots of other sites.


Offering to combine the news or feature with an exclusive free track or guest mix can also work well, we all know how popular these are, and a good way to get readers attention.

Keep media like Kmag up to date on a regular basis, it helps build knowledge about your label / club for when you really need the press i.e. an album project.


Unfortunately we don't have the resources to feature all the content we would like. Please be patient and keep sending in your news, nothing is ever ignored, we just don't have time to reply to every editorial request we receive.
