My first forward!! QUIRKY, OFFBEAT, ECLECTIC EXOTICA /LOUNGE

Post by Chris Rupp » Fri Nov 19, 2010 7:41 pm

I finally got my first forward on the listing below. It feels good after having my first 4 returned. It's exciting to finally get one through. Now I just have to do it a couple of hundred/thousand more times.

My track is called "Lounge Lizard".

Y101019IN

QUIRKY, OFFBEAT, ECLECTIC EXOTICA / LOUNGE INSTRUMENTALS a la Esquivel, Martin Denny and Les Baxter needed for top Film/TV Publisher servicing advertising, film and TV round the clock. LATIN LOUNGE GROOVES should steer this friendly, upbeat, left-of-center ship with inventive arrangements incorporating Latin percussive instruments that make for toe-tapping syncopated retro-coolness. Be clever but not self-indulgent; playful, not hyper. This is chillout music for a more innocent generation. We're not talking new age, however. There is a beat, there are cocktails and someone is lighting the tiki lamps. NO VOCALS. They offer a non-exclusive, 50/50 split deal - you keep your original copyrights. Broadcast quality needed (great home recordings are fine). Please submit one to three instrumentals online or per CD. All submissions will be screened on a YES/NO BASIS ONLY - NO CRITIQUES FROM TAXI - and must be received no later than Tuesday, October 19, 2010. TAXI #Y101019IN

A very groovy piece, I liked the beat immediately. And you only had 4 returns before that first forward, that's fantastic! Here's to a hundred/thousand more - Congrats Chris!
