Contemporary electronic dance songs (a.k.a. EDM songs) with male or female vocals are needed by a major, non-exclusive European media company for in-store background music plays. The company seeks modern, mid-to-up-tempo songs that would fit on a playlist with artists like (but not limited to):
Songs should be rhythmically and melodically expressive and sound like an EDM cut, with plenty of big builds, infectious beats and a compelling vocal performance. In addition, songs should use fresh electronic sounds and production techniques with tons of catchy ear-candy from top to bottom. Do not copy or rip off the referenced artists in any way, shape or form. Use them only as a guide for tempo, texture and tone. Broadcast quality is imperative (great sounding home recordings are fine).
NOTE: This company also pitches music for film, TV and commercials, and it’s not uncommon for them to offer and sign deals with the composers and artists they find while hunting for the in-store music.
The company ensures that performance royalties will be paid by the media company, and at a "way higher rate" than what is paid by conventional Performing Rights Organizations. This company offers a non-exclusive deal, so artists will keep 100% of all composition and master rights. Artists must own or control their master and copyright to submit for this opportunity.
Please submit one to three songs online or per CD. All submissions will be screened on a "Yes/No" basis--no full critiques. Submissions must be received no later than 11:59 p.m. (PDT) on Tuesday, March 28.
