Music Library Seeks Sports Instrument Cues with Hip-Hop Flavor

Epic orchestral-based instrumental cues with some hip-hop flavor are needed by a music library that’s currently building a new catalog, specifically for sports TV programming.

They’re on the hunt for mid-to-up-tempo instrumental cues that have the general style and vibe of the following references:

Reference #1

Reference #2

Please submit rhythmically and melodically engaging instrumental cues that combine high-quality orchestral sounds with modern hip-hop elements and beats. Your instrumental cues should be able to support sports-related content such as (but not limited to) highlight reels, on-air promos, and sports-related TV Commercials.

Build your cues around a central melodic idea and add and subtract instruments as your cues progress to create dynamics, and forward momentum (and to keep things from getting too linear or repetitive.)  Please be sure any virtual instruments/samples you use are current-sounding and of high quality.

Instrumental cues must have intensity, drive, energy and attitude.

All submissions should be at least two minutes long. Solid edit points and buttoned/stinger endings are encouraged. Use the references only as a general guide for tempo, tone, texture and overall vibe. Broadcast quality is needed.

This company offers an exclusive deal, so please be sure the instrumental cues you pitch for this opportunity are not already signed with any other companies or catalogs. You'll get 100% of the writer's share and the library will keep 100% of the publisher’s share.   You must own or control your masters and copyright to submit. Please submit as many instrumental cues as you'd like, 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 PM (PDT) on Monday, Sept. 2, 2019.
