Beyond supporting artists through releases, Tropical Punk Records also plays an active role in promoting the underground scene through its podcast and show, Neo Travel Cast. This platform celebrates the scene by showcasing bands, people, and places that contribute to independent music. Neo Travel Cast features two distinct shows: El Poste: This weekly show highlights new punk, ska, and hardcore releases from Colombian artists, keeping listeners up-to-date with the latest sounds. Sábado Internacional: This show expands the focus, celebrating new releases from similar bands around the world, offering a broader perspective on the global underground scene. When submitting music to us, please keep in mind that "Sábado Internacional" and "El Poste" run weekly. We receive a lot of submissions from Groover and other sources so there might be a limit on the amount of songs we can approve for sharing. Since we focus on sharing bands from all over the World, we want to provide as many bands and artists the opportunity to participate. Please limit your submissions to 1 or 2 per year. Please take the time to listen to our playlists, the quality of the songs that we share, and the styles of punk, ska, and hardcore that we include so that you have an idea of what we normally share. We can also help you distribute music with a focus on punk, ska, and hardcore playlists, audience, and digital support.
