house music only here
Submissions of house music is a must as it’s a great fit for the station.
We’re always on the hunt for fresh, exciting tunes to feature
but keep in mind that we’re looking for a specific sound.
We’re passionate about House Music – with a sprinkle of experimental flavor,
of course. We want to feature music that’s authentic, distinctive, and truly exceptional.
Before submitting your set, take a peek at our website and check out
the sets we’ve featured in the past to get a better feel for our vibe.
We listen to every submission, but please be patient if it takes us a bit of time to get
back to you – we want to give each set the attention it deserves. Typically, you can expect
a response within two weeks. If we’re interested in your mix, we’ll definitely be in touch.
Let’s make some music magic together!
Tracks/Songs/Mixes/Remixes, that don’t meet our minimum quality standard will not be accepted but never be rejected.
You’re always welcome to re-submit a Track/Song/Mix/Remix, that does.
AHHM sets the absolute standard for premium HD audio.
Our listeners demand the highest quality and it’s our mission to deliver the best listener experience possible.
FOR QUALITY PURPOSES,
PLEASE FOLLOW THESE GUIDELINES SO YOUR MIXES SOUND SUPERIOR ON AAHM
Before you get started,
please make sure your mixer is in STEREO mode (yes, this happens a lot — MONO is NO BUENO).
Just because you have audio in BOTH channels, does NOT mean it’s STEREO.
DO NOT SAVE MIXES AS MP3… ALL MIXES MUST BE RECORDED AND SAVED IN UNCOMPRESSED .WAV FORMAT…
NO EXCEPTIONS. MP3 MIXES WILL NOT BE ACCEPTED.
What happens is, let’s say that some of the songs in your Track/Song/Mix/Remix are in MP3 format (that’s one layer of compression).
Then you record your Track/Song/Mix/Remix, and save it as an MP3 (that’s a 2nd layer of compression).
Then, it’s encoded for the on-air stream (that’s a 3rd layer of compression).
By the time it hits the air, it sounds crunchy, thin, brittle, and metallic. When shows get archived on SoundCloud,
they transcode EVERYTHING down to 128k (even when you upload 128k MP3 files
— I know, INSANE! — that adds a 4th layer of compression).
The average platform doesn’t set guidelines for this — and you can hear it on the air (garbage in… garbage out.)
DO NOT CONVERT Track/Song/Mix/Remix, from MP3 back to .wav — it defeats the purpose.
If you use MP3 songs in your mix, they must be 320kbps minimum (.WAV FILES ALWAYS PREFERRED)
Watch your levels — NO RED LINES – NO EXCEPTIONS — easy to overlook when you’re in “the zone.”
If any of the steps are not followed, we won’t be able to use your Track/Song/Mix/Remix, for AAHM.
We appreciate your cooperation in this, but if you have any problems,
please contact the team and we will be happy to help where we can.
Make sure your mix is 1hr or 2hrs long exactly. We know it’s hard to get your mix exactly on time
when mixing so we would suggest using free tools like Audacity to cut and make your mix within the time.
- Make sure that when sending your original file it is in a WAV format.
- Make sure you TAG your original WAV file with your DJ/Artist name, Show name & genre.
- Make sure you provide a tracklist/playlist with cue point times of the start of each track.
- Your mix needs to be exclusive, meaning it shouldn’t be available for download from other sites and has never been broadcasted on any radio show or station anywhere.
- Your recording needs to be as clean as possible, so please avoid any humming or hissing sounds.
- Please do not use any voice drops, jingles, or IDs in your mix.
- When invited to do so we suggest sending your WAV file with a Wetransfer link added to the form below.
- This is free to use and makes life much easier to get your files.
- When sending your mix also include information about yourself (incl. any bio and social profile links or website).
Your mix will appear on AAHM Podcasts on the following platforms:
Amazon Music, Apple Podcasts, Audible, iHeart, TuneIn, PlayerFM, Google Podcasts, Podcast Index,
Overcast, Pdcast Addict, Listen Notes, Goodpods, Podfriend, and many more…
And AAHM RADIO with a scheduled slot.
