    Please submit well-structured songs with compelling lyrics, a great melody, and a big hit chorus that sounds like it’s ready for radio. They’re going for a Contemporary A/C Pop sound, so please be sure the songs you submit are capable of resonating with a broad audience.

    NOTE: The label executive is targeting fresh young songwriters for his newly signed artists. If you're a credible and competitive writer, these projects would be a great way to get your song cut!

    Your production and recording quality needs to be clean, clear, well balanced, and good enough to represent your song well. Please submit as many Songs as you’d like online or per CD, include lyrics. All submissions will be screened by a person handpicked by the Record Label.

    NOTE: We recently ran this request as a TAXI Dispatch Listing (TAXI #D180822OC), but the company didn’t get enough material and asked us to run this request to our full membership list to see if we could find them even more. If you submitted to TAXI #D180822OC, please submit different material this time around!

    “Jingle Bell Rock” by Glee: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VfLf7A_-1Vw

    “Underneath the Tree” by Kelly Clarkson: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YfF10ow4YEo

    "Deck The Halls " by Tenth Avenue North: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=q7dF1P0PHss

    Although the references above have vocals, this pitch is for instrumentals only. Please submit Original, festive Instrumentals that deliver a Christmas sound and style. Your top-notch productions should utilize arrangements you’d commonly hear in Christmas music, with instruments including (but not limited to) sleigh bells, hand bells, chimes, etc. Please avoid any overly busy parts in your arrangement, as they could distract from dialogue in a scene.

    Submissions should be between 2:00 and 4:00 minutes long, give or take. Non-Faded endings with a natural ring out will work best. Do not copy the references in any way, shape, or form. Use them only as general guide for overall feel, texture and tone. Broadcast quality is needed.

    ORCHESTRAL INSTRUMENTAL CUES with an EDM or HIP-HOP BEAT are needed by a successful Music Licensing Company that’s new to running searches with TAXI! They’re looking for Mid-to-Up-Tempo Instrumental Cues that could fit stylistically with the following references we got directly from them:

    Electronic Orchestral Music: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2OCe5WaWhCg

    “You Will Remember (Instrumental)” by Marius De La Mer https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OzYsqTcK4FI

    Give them well-crafted Instrumental Cues that are built around an EDM or Hip-Hop beat. Submissions should feature high-quality Orchestral instrumentation and a great mix. Your submissions should feature a central melodic idea that maintains the same mood and/or emotion from beginning to end. Material that has poor or dated sounding virtual instruments won’t work well for this request.

    TAXI TIP: Keep it simple! One cue = one feel. Clearly, these are not very elaborate Orchestral arrangements. They’re looking for Instrumental Cues that can work nicely under dialogue, not necessarily the best or most intricate compositions.

    NOTE: This company has a great reputation with composers and artists who are already in their catalog! They really get out there and hustle!

    All submissions should be about 2 minutes in length, give or take. Non-faded, Buttoned/Stinger endings will work best. Please do NOT copy the referenced artists or songs in any way, shape, or form. Use them only as a general guide for tempo, texture, tone, and overall vibe. Broadcast quality is needed.

    This company offers an EXCLUSIVE deal. You’ll split any upfront sync fees 50/50. They’ll get 100% of the Publisher’s share, and you’ll get 100% of the Writer’s share.

    SPARSE HIP-HOP INSTRUMENTAL CUES are needed by a successful Music Licensing Company that’s new to running searches with TAXI! They’re looking for Mid-to-Up-Tempo Instrumental Cues that could fit stylistically with the following references:

    NOTE: The most important keyword here is SPARSE. Give them engaging melodies that can stand on their own without being busy or becoming distracting.

    “Paranoid” (Instrumental) by Ty Dolla Sign: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AB5tWax2miI

    “No Brainer” by DJ Khaled ft. Justin Bieber, Chance the Rapper, Quavo: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kxloC1MKTpg

    Although one of the references has vocals, this request is for Instrumentals only!

    Please send them open, well-crafted Hip-Hop Instrumental Cues that establish a vibe with minimal elements. Please make sure your production is modern with up-to-date sounds and super current production techniques. Your submissions should feature a central melodic idea that builds momentum and forward movement. Adding and subtracting different elements will create dynamics and interest as your Cues progress.

    TAXI Tip: Your submissions can have some simple, non-lyrical Vocal elements, but they're not absolutely necessary. “Hey” “Ho” “Whoa” You know the drill ;-) Again, those are not necessary to land this, just a suggestion!

    Quoting the Artist’s Manager: “I need innovative Hip-Hop tracks, with or without hooks. If you’re sending an instrumental with a hook, I'm looking for clever and relevant phrases that will keep the artist ahead of the curve. Beats need to be insane and stand out rhythmically. I'm willing to listen to all Contemporary styles from Trap to old-school loops produced with today's Hip-Hop swag. I'm good with fresh sample ideas as long the track sounds contemporary and current. I need Club beats as well as track ideas that have a commercial top 40 radio sound.”

    Please send them current-sounding Rap/Hip-Hop Instrumentals that are well-crafted with current melodies, and are driven with a contemporary sound that’s right down the lane of the references. Please be sure your production sounds polished - think speaker knocking drums with high quality Virtual Instruments and Samples.

    Lyrics that avoid references to specific names, dates, times, places, brands, and profanity will make your song more usable for this Supervisor.
