For The Win (FTW) – This sports-focused hip hop library is brought to us by Kenny Moron, who has written and produced a number of hip hop albums that have already generated a fan base within our sports market. He’s gathered a group of talented writers and artists to help strengthen our offerings in this genre.
Hooked (HKD) – This newest collection from Bruton features songs with lyrics that all address a common theme and cover a range of moods. Many of them have a cinematic feel and are well-suited to the trailer, promo, and advertising use. The initial launch is 7 albums, with regular ongoing updates to follow. HKD 6 “Saints and Sinners” is one of our Editors’ Picks for the month.
V Records (VR) – The producer of V Records is none other than Matt Fink - a producer and songwriter who has worked with many of the music greats and is best known as having been the keyboardist for Prince and The Revolution. With this artist-driven collection, he’ll be applying his producing skills to highlight up-and-coming new talent.
