Final days to submit your tracks for the biggest industrial download compilation, powered by Side-Line !

🇺🇦 Side-Line stands with Ukraine - Show your Support

We’re entering the final days for you to submit a track to the 4th volume in the super popular free industrial music download compilation series “Face The Beat”. Deadline is set for June 15th midnight!

“Face The Beat: Session 4” will again be focusing on new/known talents from the industrial/electronic scene which will get a large platform to showcase their material! The 3 previous releases – “Face The Beat: Session 1”, “Face The Beat: Session 2” and “Face The Beat: Session 3” (all still available right here) – are by far the most downloaded compilations ever from the industrial scene reaching tens of thousands of industrial music lovers each time.

Just like the previous volumes, we will again be supporting a good cause with the donations we receive, that charity will be announced in the next few weeks.

Apart from the free download via Bandcamp (where you can also donate if you want), this time we will also distribute 40 tracks from the download compilation via Apple Music, Spotify, Deezer etc in order to satisfy the growing demand from people to be able to stream the compilation too via their favourite platform. All income will of course again be going to the charity we will select and announce soon.

How can you take part in the compilation?

Send your MP3 submissions (preferably previously unreleased and GEMA free material) via to . Do NOT send files via email, such submissions will not be accepted! We will contact you upon selection to request an unmastered WAV file and will also send you some paperwork to complete. The deadline for submissions is June 15th which leaves you some time.

We are open to all kind of dark styles as you can hear on the previous compilations that are available for free download on . In the past we have featured cold wave, ebm, electro,dark techno, heavenly voices, ethnic electro, idm, dark dubstep, … If you see a style featured in the Side-Line news coverage, then you can be pretty sure it will also be accepted for this compilation.

This compilation will again be powered by Side-Line and promoted to a whole range of magazines and DJ’s.

Below are the previous compilations for you to check out:

Since you’re here …

… we have a small favour to ask. More people are reading Side-Line Magazine than ever but advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. Unlike many news organisations, we haven’t put up a paywall – we want to keep our journalism as open as we can - and we refuse to add annoying advertising. So you can see why we need to ask for your help.

Side-Line’s independent journalism takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. But we do it because we want to push the artists we like and who are equally fighting to survive.

If everyone who reads our reporting, who likes it, helps fund it, our future would be much more secure. For as little as 5 US$, you can support Side-Line Magazine – and it only takes a minute. Thank you.

The donations are safely powered by Paypal.
