Edgy Track for Fashion Campaign

A song with an edge is what this fashion campaign is asking for. They want a track that’s high energy, catchy and a bit alternative to catch the attention of an audience of any generation. We are open to a variety of genres but nothing too serious or complicated, just fun music with a unique flare. Our client is not interested in songs that are especially vocal heavy and is looking for fairly generic lyrics that all age groups and genders can relate to, preferably with a hook. This campaign will be colourful and cool and needs a groovy track that will stand out whilst also complimenting the clothes.

Nostalgic Track for TV advert

We’re after a track with a vintage feel our client can use in their advert to contrast clips of the painfully ordinary moments in day-to-day life that can cause us stress. They are after elegant tracks with a sense of softness. Music that opposes the anxiety and realness on the screen and creates a hopeful, almost romantic space for the visuals. In terms of lyrics, they are not necessary and it would be best if an instrumental was also provided. That being said, any lyrics which help set an emotional tone would work great, for example by speaking about love or waiting for the storm to pass etc. Try to make sure any tracks you upload are not too melancholic, although we do want slow, graceful songs it is important that ultimately they uplift anyone watching.

It would be best for you to also include an instrumental version of your song for this sync as the production team are also looking out for any musical hooks that could stand alone if needs be.

If you have a song with a driving beat, powerful music and an aggressive vocal it would perfect for this opportunity.

These two icons will recount how hip-hop shaped their lives and careers, and talk about what it means to be a part of a culture that has changed so much over the decades. You’ll hear the stories of some of their greatest musical triumphs, and find out what they think hip-hop’s next 50 years will look like.

6:00 PM | KING STAYS KING: KEYNOTE INTERVIEW WITH TIMBALAND  

You can divide the history of R&B, hip-hop and pop production into two eras: pre-Timbaland and post-Timbaland. This sonic scientist has been expanding our minds for over 25 years with his futuristic beats and unerring ear for a hook. In the late ‘90s, Timbaland’s collaborations with Ginuwine, Aaliyah and Missy Elliott changed the sound of radio, building unearthly grooves out of strange sounds that propelled these incredible talents into superstardom. He charted new sonic territory in the 2000s with Justin Timberlake (“SexyBack”), OneRepublic (“Apologize”), Nelly Furtado (“Promiscuous”) and Madonna (“4 Minutes”), amassing a bulletproof canon of massive hits. In the years since, Timbaland has left his stamp on film/TV scoring, production music, book publishing and beyond. More recently, Timbaland united the world during the pandemic with VERZUZ, which brought us epic battles between many of music’s greatest names. And he’s paying it forward with his new platform BeatClub, an all-in-one solution for music creators. Don’t miss this in-depth conversation with one of the most innovative musical minds of our era. You’ll hear about the sounds that inspired Timbaland on his way to the top, and what inspires him to stay ahead of the curve today. 

PANELISTS:

  • MODERATOR: Ray Daniels – CEO, RAYDAR; Host, The GAUDS Show podcast

8:00 PM | THE WRITERS JAM 

It’s an annual tradition: we’re bringing together a killer lineup of songwriters from across the genre spectrum to play their hits in a supercharged “in-the-round” setting. They’ll tell the stories behind their best-loved songs, and play them like you’ve never heard them before. There’s a reason why we close out every ASCAP Experience with The Writers Jam – nothing could top the experience of a world-class songwriter performing an original song as the entire ASCAP community sings along.

As technology continues to advance at an unprecedented pace, the music industry faces both exciting opportunities and overwhelming challenges.

While it is true that emerging technologies like AI hold immense potential for revolutionizing the world of music, we must ensure that they don’t undermine the hard work and creativity of composers and songwriters. Recently, concerns have been raised that some applications of AI could actually devalue the contributions of human music creators, which is a troubling trend.

Fortunately, organizations like ASCAP have been vigilant in ensuring that new technologies are properly licensed in order to protect the rights of creators.

ASCAP’s leadership is deeply committed to putting people first, and their collaborative approach has already yielded initial policies that prioritize the needs of music creators. It is clear that we must keep pushing for more transparent, ethical ways of implementing AI that work in tandem with creators, rather than against them.

By partnering with organizations like ASCAP and contacting elected officials, we can ensure that we maintain a thriving, innovative music industry that values human agency and ingenuity.

Our client would like a track for an important restaurant scene in an upcoming series.  

For their project, they require a contemporary track that has a relaxed feel to it but still has a slight driving beat. The ideal track should be minimalistic, with an emphasis on the lyrics and setting a romantic tone for the two main characters. They want the track to sound like it is from an older time, perhaps blues-influenced, but it doesn’t have to be an old song necessarily.  The lyrics should focus on the themes of love, new love, or seeing someone differently.
