License Music for Video, July's Good Vibrations Mixtape

Summer is the season of coming alive, celebrating all the hard work we’ve put in so far and how far we’ve come—after all, we’re halfway through the calendar year. We’ll take our frozé and cheers to that.

In these precious days of long-lasting daylight and carefree drives to the beach or pool (we wouldn’t pass up either), summer’s offering of freedom compels us toward embracing change, newness. If you share in this summertime affinity, we invite you to check out our New Music Mixtape for July.

Dive in and bask in all new, good things—enjoy.

Music Mixtapes for Your Next Movie

using-music-in-film-copyright-music-in-video-youtube-vimeo-filmmaker-music.png

Creating or finding music for your next film is something every filmmaker can attest to within their filmmaking career. And for some filmmakers, music enters the equation as early as setting up a scene — before the film is even complete.

In an interview with Criterion Collection and music composer, Jon Brion, Brion offers up his approach toward creating rhythms for director Paul Thomas' Anderson’s PUNCH-DRUNK-LOVE.

“He’d [Anderson] put on music when he’d set up a shot because even if the music wasn’t going to be there in the end it helped give a sense of rhythm, a sense of poetic pacing to the shot.”

Brion and Anderson’s collaboration is a testimony of using music that integrates to how a scene unfolds — using musical tempo to compliment how a character’s actions are captured or depicted through camera movement.

Inspired by Brion and other memorable movie soundtracks, our A&R Team curated a mixtape inspired by similar musical compositions and scores. From the bright and bouncy instrumental masterpieces of Lullatone — to imaginative orchestral rhythms of Pretty Pizzi — these songs are pensively sweet, rooted in lightness and whimsical tones.

Music Around Town and April's New Music Mixtape

Find-music-for-video-license-for-film.jpg

Spring’s warm weather is the fuel we needed to break free of winter hibernation mode and check out more touring artists and bands. While our collection of music is full of vintage gems (like The Jackson 5), our catalog’s music for licensing overflows with talented musicians actively on tour. And since our clients who license music for video and film are scattering about the country, we’ve created a lineup of shows around town in Portland — and in other big cities too . Which one will we catch you at?

While you’re at it, check out April’s New Music Mixtape for some freshly added music. Click below to listen.

Discover Energetic Music for Your Videos

Find-music-for-videos.jpg

When you think about using music for videos, finding songs for commercial use might be more of an afterthought. After all, it can seem like a tightrope staying on task or adhering to a production timeline for any kind of project.

But when in the editor chair and push comes to shove, the popular song you had in mind when in the preproduction stage is probably out of budget — it’s time to get creative. The last thing you want to do is use music in your video that disservices a scene or causes the mood to fall flat.

With our A&R team continuously adding new music and inviting new artists to our music catalog, we’re also always curating new mixtapes with a specific theme — because we love getting our clients find music for their videos or creative projects.

This week we’ve assembled a mixtape that’s sure to hype up any scene and set an energetic pace. A collection of electronic beats to hip hop and dance, these are some of the best undiscovered songs for commercial use.

Listen, download and license by following the link to our Hype Your Life mixtape.
