Cold Busted Radio supports independent and unsigned artists. If you think your music will fit on our station please send it to us.

Digital Submission Process

We are a Funk/Soul, Instrumental Hip Hop, and Trip Hop radio station. DO NOT send any other genres. NO Hip Hop with lyrics.

Send over a free download code from Bandcamp to: radio (at) coldbusted (dot) org


WeTransfer using the same email address:

We only accept 320kbps constant bit rate MP3 files. NO other formats are accepted. We do not accept Compact Discs.

Metadata is extremely important!

We are required to report every track played so each mp3 file MUST have proper ID3 tags which include Artist, Title, Album, and Artwork. If any of the information is missing it will be rejected instantly.

If submitting compilations make sure the ID3 tags do not contain additional information in the ID3 fields.

Make sure the artwork is square and no larger than 1000 by 1000 pixels. This applies to both the artwork in the folder and artwork embedded in each mp3 file.


Tracks should be inside a folder, zip the folder, name it accordingly using your artist name, then send us a WeTransfer link. In the Message field you MUST write: Cold Busted Radio Submission.

We reply to all submissions if sent correctly.
