URBAN DRAMEDY INSTRUMENTAL CUES are needed by a Top-Tier Music Library that gets tons of big Feature Film and TV placements!

They’re on the hunt for Mid-To-Up-Tempo Instrumental Cues that are in the general stylistic range of the references:

Love & Hip Hop: Hollywood (From 0:12 - 0:36)

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-PsWyF7i2YA

Love & Listings (From 2:46 - 3:05)

Please send them well-produced Instrumental Cues that are built around rhythmic Urban/Hip-Hop beats. They need Cues that could be used in a variety of mischievous and comedic scenes in Reality TV Shows. Build your Cues around a central melodic theme, while adding and subtracting layers of instrumentation as they progress to create dynamics, interest, and forward momentum. Avoid anything that sounds busy as it could interfere with a scene’s dialogue.

TAXI Tip: This Music Library most likely has a bunch of "typical" Urban Dramedy in their catalog. Adding a fresh “twist” to your Instrumental Cues could help you grab this library’s attention!

All submissions should be about 90 seconds long, give or take. Solid edit points and Non-Faded, Buttoned/Stinger endings are strongly encouraged. Please do not copy the referenced music in any way, shape, or form. Use it only as a general guide for tempo, texture, tone, and vibe. Broadcast quality is needed.

This Music Library offers an EXCLUSIVE deal. You’ll split all upfront sync fees 50/50. They’ll get 100% of the Publisher’s share, and you’ll get 100% of the Writer’s share. You must own or control 100% of your Master and Copyright. Since this is an EXCLUSIVE deal, please be sure the material you submit for this pitch is NOT already signed with any other Libraries or Catalogs. Please submit as many Instrumental Cues as you’d like, online or per CD. All submissions will be screened on a Yes/No basis by a TAXI screener – Short critiques only. Submissions must be received no later than 11:59 PM (PDT) on Saturday, September 28th, 2019. TAXI #Y190928UB

Hi John

I think you got something there! I would work on the mix to make it brighter, and I would bring the pizzicato strings a little more upfront (make them louder).

I do get a little bit an 90s (Eminem?) vibe from it, but maybe that is nothing to worry about as long as the instrumentation is up-to-date. For instance, I am not
sure if the hihats in this form are something that would be current enough. Since I don't know much about Hip-Hop, in which I think this falls, I would rather
have someone else commenting on the issue of "current enough". :)

Overall, I like the track and think this could be a contender after a little overhaul.

Tom

P.S.: No, not too busy! :)
