If you ever need to contact Drowned in Sound, here's how to do it...
Yes, yes, we know you're a dog-darn genius, and that we should be contacting you... Sometimes, you need to get in touch with us. However, you probably shouldn't hold your breathe for a reply. Our editor - who's the only full-time member of staff - gets upwards of 700 press releases deluging his inbox on a daily basis. Try your luck, you never know, he might even be in a good mood (That's doubtful! - Ed).
Here is a list of who you should contact at DiS about what you might need. You're best off doing a bit of digging yourself to find the very best person for your question, but we'll try to make this page as useful as possible.

Editor / Site Founder
Sean Adams was one of the co-founders of the site back in October 2000 and remains at the site's helm to this day. He's your first port of call for anything that isn't regarding features or album reviews (y'know, fun stuff like album premieres, festival partnerships, free trips to Mexico...). Sean is also who you need to speak to about any technical issues or legal queries or pretty much anything and everything that isn't covered below.
Have a single coming out in the next few weeks? Robert Leedham is who you need to speak to. He looks after our weekly singles column. You will need to include a release date, and a paragraph or so of information. Please don't attach a 70meg .wav file...
Andrzej Lukowski looks after our team of 25+ critics. He's your man for all album reviews (you can also give him a prod about festival reviews too). However, before you fling your records his way, you should probably note that we only commission a maximum of 15 album reviews a week and he receives 100+ releases each and every week. Andrzej is also the Theatre Editor for TimeOut London, and is not a full-time Drowned in Sound employee, so we can't promise he will have time to get back to your naggings about that EP you recorded in your bedroom last week...
Cate Blanche looks after all of our In-Depth editorial, which includes interviews, regular columns, artist-generated content, themed weeks and site takeovers. A full list of columns and previous site takeovers can be found here.

Our community is quite good at self-moderatiring. However, we do have several volunteers who help moderate the boards, but TheoGB is usually the best person to send a note if you have anything pressing.
