I've never done this before. I've sent it to a bunch of record labels and blogs, and mostly it's gone ignored (one record label replied with some advice on how to improve it, one blog posted it). I am planning on refining it some more and doing another marketing push. Do you have any advice on who/what I should send it to? I'd love to get it on the radio!

Other than having a clear chorus, bridge, and a couple other melodies, they tend to be the same patterns over and over. Rap is especially notable for this. People complain a lot about electronic music being repetitive but it's really 1 of 2 things:
- no vocals over the patterns
- the song just sucks enough that you notice the repetition
One of the worst examples of repetitive pop music is M.I.A.'s Paper Planes (which is crossover electronic/hip hop/pop), because she repeats each verse of the song TWICE. Twice, back to back! Even though I like the song, I've always been annoyed by that.
Anyway, now that I'm done with that tangent, yes, vocals, very important.
