Retrowave Forward

Post by levelone » Tue Jun 08, 2021 10:25 am

Hello all,

Haven't submitted for any pitches in a while so it was nice to get a forward on this one.

Track:
https://soundcloud.com/level-one-music/arcade-dreams

Listing:
Several RETROWAVE INSTRUMENTAL CUES are needed by an extremely busy Music Library with a tremendously long list of killer placements in Hit TV Shows!

This Library is on the hunt for Mid-to-Up-Tempo Instrumental Cues that are in the general stylistic ballpark of these references we got directly from them:

"End Game" by Droid Bishop

"America Online" by The Midnight

"Spectral Engram" by Bit Funk & Jason Gaffner

"Sunlight" by Krosia

Please send well-produced Retrowave Instrumental Cues with solid rhythms, catchy hooks, and super cool, retro-inspired Electronic instrumentation. Craft your Cues around a singular motif and mood, and create a sense of forward momentum and dynamics by layering instrumentation in and out as they progress. Please be sure that your production and all virtual instruments and samples you use are high-quality and fresh.

TAXI Tip: Retro-inspired does NOT mean dated – your submissions should not sound like they came straight off of a Giorgio Moroder record. Take those nostalgic sounds and pair them with modern production – that's what this Library is looking for!

All submissions should be about 90 seconds to 2 minutes long, give or take. Non-faded, buttoned/stinger endings are strongly recommended. Do NOT copy the referenced tracks in any way, shape, or form. Use them only as a general guide for tempo, tone, and overall vibe. Do NOT submit any material with unauthorized samples of any other artists’ music, sounds, or any other form of media. Broadcast Quality is needed.

This company offers an EXCLUSIVE deal. You’ll split all upfront sync fees 50/50. You’ll keep 100% of the Writer’s share and the Publisher will get 100% of the Publisher’s share. You must own or control 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 other Libraries or Catalogs. Please submit as many Instrumental Cues as you’d like, online or per CD. All submissions will be screened and critiqued by TAXI. Submissions must be received no later than 11:59 PM (PDT) on Wednesday, June 2nd, 2021. TAXI # S210602RW

Good job, captures the vibe perfectly. I like how the ending builds up. I got two returns on this, ironically the things the screener disliked in my feedback (not keeping a single theme) I hear in your forward. :)
