Placement on 13 Reasons Why and Love and Hip Hop

Postby sguiles » Sun Jul 22, 2018 1:42 pm

So, I got two placements this year (not my only placements, but noteworthy for me) that have earned me some nice money (covers my Taxi renewal and Rally expenses and drinks). :)

First was my song Vicious Kisses on 13 Reasons Why. I got this through a library that comes highly recommended via Taxi members. I'd have never known about this library if not for my relationship with fellow Taxi members.

And this song also received placement on Blue Bloods LAST year as well. Same company. :)

Second was a placement with another library of my VERY FIRST EDM song, Absolute Traction. I learned and got feedback from fellow Taxi members on my mix, then I just sent it out and continued with my Write Submit Forget Repeat life. :) About 6 months later I found a nice statement in my ASCAP earnings from Love and Hip Hop. Yay!! Again, a company I found through my interactions with Taxi members.

Here are the songs:

Vicious Kisses https://soundcloud.com/newcoolnowmusic/vicious-kisses-m09-bass-down

Thanks Taxi, for the years of training, friendships, Rally, and experience! I feel like I'm constantly learning and growing and Taxi is a huge part of that process.

Thanks! It's really my first time doing EDM. :)

Granted - I DID spend quite a bit of time working on the whole "kick drum sidechain" thing before this track.
I had experimented...but never really tried specifically to work on THAT style.
