LOUNGE INSTRUMENTALS with some African influence in a broad range of Styles, Genres, and Tempos are needed by a NON-Exclusive, Major Media Company for In-Store background music. They’re searching for an eclectic range of Lounge Instrumentals that have a distinct African vibe or feel. Please listen to the references the client gave us to get a broad idea of what they’re looking for:

South Africa Chillout & Lounge Mix

Although the references may have some vocals, please submit Instrumentals only!
Give them Instrumentals that are laid-back, rhythmically engaging, with a distinct African-influence, whether by Instrumentation, overall vibe, or both. If your piece would fit in the background of a hip Johannesburg Surf Shop or a cool Moroccan-style Lounge, you’re probably on the right track! Creative instrumentation, tasteful textures, and smooth percussion with African instruments will give your piece the sound this company is looking for.  They want to hear Instrumentals that will quickly establish a mood and transport listeners to a variety of locations in Africa.

If you use Virtual Instruments or samples, please make sure that they sound like the real thing and not obviously quantized, MIDI-driven instruments that sound fake and synth-y. Faded or non-faded endings could both potentially work for this request. Non-Faded endings might serve you better because of what’s in the next paragraph…

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 they find while hunting for the in-store music!

NOTE 2: Please include a bio and photo with your submissions, as this company often may use them on their website or other promotional media.

Quoting the Company: “Performance Royalties will be paid by the media company, and at ‘WAY HIGHER RATE’ than what is paid by conventional Performing Rights Organizations.”

Please do NOT copy the referenced music in any way, shape, or form. Use it only as a general guide for tempo, texture, tone, and overall vibe. Broadcast quality is needed (great sounding home recordings are fine). This company offers a NON-EXCLUSIVE deal, so you will keep 100% ownership of all rights. You must own or control your Master and Copyright to submit for this opportunity. Please submit one to three Instrumentals 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 Tuesday, May 23rd, 2017.
