Send your cuts
Send us your track and you could get played on 1Xtra and Radio 1.

We pick 2 unsigned cuts and put them up online every Monday. Listeners vote for the one they think is the best.

We reveal if you're a winner on Sunday between 5-7pm and Ras interviews you live on 1Xtra. It's winner stays on and if you stay there for four weeks you get a chance to enter the Homegrown Hall of Fame.

Hall Of Fame winners will get a helping hand from Ras Kwame... tell us how we can help you get into this business!

Hall Of Famers Flo performed at a Homegrown Live event at BBC Maida Vale studios, and Mikey T is getting some tunes pressed up to help his tracks get out there...

Send your tracks on CD or MD to 1Xtra - Homegrown Cuts, PO Box 1X, London W1A. Make sure you include accurate contact details.

We have a couple of rules. Keep your tracks clean: if you can't send a clean edit, let us know so we can edit out swear words for the website.

Don't use uncleared samples: We're not talking drum or bass sounds here - if you use a vocal or music sample that blatantly doesn't belong to you, we can't use it.
