Submission Procedures

EP/LP Submission Guidelines

I. Please only send submissions when the label indicates that we are taking submissions. Usually our release windows are after we have released a compilation, and our current status can be found on this site and the label’s Twitter profile (https://twitter.com/ArgRecNetlabel).
II. Send your initial email to argalirecordsnetlabel@nym.hush.com. Include project/band name, website and/or Bandcamp link, and descriptions of your project AND the EP/album you would like us to release. Usually the more info the better, as it helps speed up the release process. Normally, we try to release EP/albums one to three months from the initial email, although sometimes we can release much sooner, depending on circumstances. Do NOT directly attach music files to emails.
III. If we are able to release your album, please send your music files, album graphic(s), linear notes (if applicable), and so on in a single .ZIP file through WeTransfer or similar service. Audio files need to be lossless codec files that conform to Bandcamp upload standards (https://get.bandcamp.help/hc/en-us/articles/360046719513-How-do-I-upload-music-). Argali Records Netlabel cannot master, remaster, volume correct, or re-encode your tracks. Cover and any additional graphic should be 1500×1500 .jpegs or better (basically anything that complies with Bandcamp standards, note that there is a file size limit) [https://get.bandcamp.help/hc/en-us/articles/360007802194-Bandcamp-design-tutorial]. Please only submit projects that you are 100% satisfied with and are in a complete state.
IV. We reserve the right to reject any submission for any reason. We are mainly an experimental ambient/electronica label, although we have accepted various types of noise on a case-by-case basis. No HNW please, as there are many other labels better suited for that type of material. Please follow the submission guidelines to the best of your ability, as these guidelines have been designed to lessen the time between receiving an album submission and releasing it.
V. Thank you again for your consideration. THIS ONE’S FOR YOU.

Compilation Submission Guidelines

I. Please send your track to argalirecordsnetlabel@nym.hush.com.
II. Send the track through WeTransfer or a similar service. Do NOT directly attach tracks to emails. One track per musician/band/label please.
III. Please be sure to label your email AND your track file with your project name and track name (“PROJECT NAME – TRACK NAME”) as you would like it displayed on the final release.
IV. Please include your project Bandcamp/website/etc in your submission email.
V. Only send us an email if you have a track ready to submit. Please do NOT send multiple tracks and ask for us to choose. Track length should be between one minute to thirty minutes in length, although we do accept exceptions to this on a case-by-case basis.
VI. While we do accept tracks that have been previously released on an album, the track should be EXCLUSIVE to the compilation. (in other words, not already submitted to other compilations).
VII. Submitted tracks need to be of a lossless codec and conform to Bandcamp upload procedures.
VIII. Argali Records Netlabel cannot master, re-master, volume correct, or re-encode your track. Please be careful with the volume level of your tracks, as we receive a wide range of musical content.
IX. Track graphics are encouraged, but NOT required. Graphics should be at least 1500×1500 .jpeg or better, to conform to Bandcamp standards. PLEASE include your project name in the graphic file name, as this helps us keep track of everything when uploading to the Bandcamp draft page.
X. There is NO profit sharing on Argali Records Netlabel compilations. Any purchase profits, unless stated otherwise, goes towards defraying hosting costs for the label. We appreciate your understanding regarding this.
XI. NO HNW unless stated otherwise.
XII. We reserve the right to reject any submission for any reason.
XIII. These rules are not all 100% set in stone, but (as is the case with EP/LP submissions), these have been written to facilitate the submission process and make it easier for both the label and the band/musician. All compilations are licensed under Creative Commons Attribution 4.0 International licenses (https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/4.0/), unless you specifically request otherwise.
XIV. Thank you again for your consideration. Please feel free to use the email listed above if you have any questions regarding submission procedures etc.
