Your Song's Video on Red Dragon TV's Playlist


The Play List on Red Dragon TV is on 24/7 except when Red Dragon TV is broadcasting it's live shows. If your song is play-listed it will be on rotation. It is very much like old school MTV.

If you upload a song during the submission process, please be sure to retrieve the email that will be sent to you immediately afterward from no-reply@musicxray.com. Follow the instructions to fill in your modules (if you don't know what that means, you will once you get the email). You will then be able to attach your song's YouTube video to your Music Xray Song Presentation Pack. Be sure to set that module to "open" and "public".

If you are submitting an already-existing Music Xray Song Presentation Pack just make sure you set the video module to "open" and "public".

If we love what you've sent we will get it touch with instructions on how we will proceed to get your song into the play list.

Got a Hit Single


Music Xray is partnering with a label to release a compilation of great hit singles and submitting for consideration is free. You will be paid a royalty on sales commiserate with most label deals. Placement is non-exclusive and by submitting you are agreeing to certain terms and conditions so read carefully before you submit.

Submit only songs that you believe are hit singles and are radio ready. Songs will be released as they are, so if they are not radio ready they are not eligible for consideration.

The label's A&R ears are anxious to hear what you've got.

Tip of the week

Tip of the week - Making submissions and not getting placements? We can help. Music Xray is NOT a music placement company, a music library or a pre-screener.

Music Xray IS a platform that enables you to place your own music by facilitating direct interactions between song owners and industry decision makers.

But, if you've been submitting and you are not getting placements you should get some professional help. Music Xray also enables artists to interact directly with top producers, songwriters and other professionals who give feedback, advice and career coaching to help you understand why you may not be getting placements, how to improve and how to get your career to the next level no matter how successful you've been in the past.

If you've got a hit song we want to hear it. For this opportunity we are considering songs from the rock and pop genres that will be part of a compilation album.

Please read this section carefully before submitting.

This is a non-exclusive deal and Music Xray can only use your track as part of a compilation bearing the Music Xray brand. The territory is worldwide. Your Royalty will be a pro-rata share of 14% in the US, 12% in the rest of the world. Accounting will be every 6 months after release date and payment within 60 days. If as a result of being part of a compilation, The Artist signs a recording/publishing deal with a third party, Music Xray will be entitled to 10% of any advances and earnings from that track. After a period of 3 years, the rights shall revert to The Artist whether it has been released on a compilation or not.

You will be notified if and when your track is selected. We anticipate a lot of submissions so please be patient.

Song Writing & Production advice


Phil Ogden is song writer and producer who is largely self taught with a skillset that's been honed through years of exploration, experimentation and, more recently, collaboration.

I have had a number of songs released and recently scored a No.1 hit in the South Africa Nokia Top 40 chart. Happy to provide feedback and exchange ideas about song writing in all it's forms.

Do you have a voice that turns heads? This is your chance to work with top producers who have top 10 hits under their belts!

A successful London music development and production team are running a competition to find a solo singer who they can work with ... and the best part is it's completely free to enter!
