Post *** Information for DJ's ***
1Mix Radio is an Internet Radio Station which plays Uplifting, Vocal, Euphoric Trance on our Trance stream, and Progressive Trance and House music on our House/EDM stream.

The function of 1Mix Radio is to assist artists by promoting their music in the form of shows, reviews and interviews. The music you play should be from fellow artists who give their consent to inclusion in your show and should be free from any restrictions or royalties. Please ensure that this is the case as not doing so could have damaging effects on this station and its owner.

Please observe the following points in relation to your show:
1) Shows must be uploaded to 1Mix at least 24 hours before the show is due to be streamed.
2) Shows must be at least 320kbps/44.1 Khz [320kbs preferred].
3) Please try to have your show the same duration as your slot - longer shows will be cut off when your slot expires.
4) If you know you can't supply your show, for whatever reason, please let us know.
5) If your show is live, please start your stream before your scheduled time to enable our server to connect.
6) Please ensure your live stream is correctly tagged or use the 'Change Show Title' facility.
7) Please delete old shows when uploading your latest one.
8) *Shows must not contain Jingles or Station ID's from other stations*
9) Shows MUST NOT contain any profane language or drugs references. 1Mix is listed on iTunes as 'Family Friendly'
10) Shows should not be available for public download/Podcast for 24 hours after your allocated slot, and 1Mix requires 'first play' - if this is not possible, please explain in your application
11) You must actively promote your show and the station on all available media
12) Please do not deviate from the genre we have agreed - i.e. play House in a Trance show
13) Please avoid long intros & exros at the beginning and end of your show - its boring!

Shows streamed on 1Mix Radio are for promotional purposes only. As a DJ you must ensure you have the artist's permission to use promo/pre-release material in your sets/shows.

1Mix Radio is, for all intent and purposes, an automated station, and from time to time a show may not play. Whilst we try not to let this happen, we accept no responsibility in the event of a show not playing. However, we will endeavour to find an opportunity to play the show again.

Proper naming of files:

File name: DJ Name @djtwitterhash - Show Name.mp3
Then go to properties [right click], advanced, and fill in the Artist, twitter hash and Title fields. More info on our YouTube video here:



Please note: 1Mix Radio was previously removed from the iTunes directory for playing tracks containing explicit material. It took a lot of effort and 6 months of waiting to get listed again. Please read this guide prepared by one of our artists. Thankyou.

Thank you for joining the 1Mix Community.

Post Using your ftp account
Instructions for residents:

Every resident of our radio station has a personal account on our ftp server.

Go to your ftp-account:

To connect to the FTP server, we advise you to use one of these programs:-
FileZilla (free), CuteFtp, SmartFtp.

Connection Settings (sent to you by e-mail):
Host adress / Address: upload.1mix.co.uk
Username / Login / Username: Your username
Password / Password: your password
Leave the default port 21.

Once connected, you will see an empty folder, it is your personal directory for your radio show. This is where you upload your show to, there is no need to create any new folders. Remember that only the mix that is in your root directory will play!

The name of the mix:
Artist @yourtwitter - Name of the Radio show - Episode, for example:-
DJ Yourname @djyourname - Radioshow Episode 001. Please also ensure that the artist name, twitter and title are entered in the ID3 tags to ensure the correct information displays on our players.

Mandatory requirements for the mix:
Quality: at least 320 kbits
Duration: The agreed duration of your radio show. There should be no deviations in time, otherwise playback will be cut at the end of your mix!!
Format: MP3 ONLY and no other! Do not upload your mix as a ZIP/RAR file as this will not play!
Important: Remove old mixes before the time of your broadcast, in order to prevent a repeat of the same file!

Post *** Promotion of your show ***
Artists are encouraged to put as much promotional effort as possible into maximising the exposure of their shows.

Here are some suggestions:

Twitter Live Tracklistings
You can raise the awareness of your show to not only your own followers, but also those of the artists who's tracks you play, and their followers.

Live posting of tracklists should follow this syntax:
NP: 01 Artist Name @artisttwitter - Track Title #label #showname @1mixradio [plus any other relevant # you can fit in]

Facebook Event
Many artists create an event page for their shows to which they can invite all thier followers to like and comment on.

An event page also gives you a meeting place for you to chat with friends and followers during your show. Many artists prepare artwork before their show to post with live tracklistings on facebook.

We advise Facebook users to install the free Chrome addon Invite All, which enables you to send mass invites to all your followers.

We hope this guide helps you with your promotional efforts.
