I know you all have been waiting for it! Here’s this week’s taste of some fresh new stock music coming into our library that I just absolutely love!

Listen Now: “Loving it” Stock Music Playlist Week 9

1. “Beat the Pressure” – Basspartout

Let’s be real, you can feel the groove immediately. I know you got that booty shaking, dance moves flowing and it’s only 30 seconds deep. Great warm up for the playlist, Basspartout.

2. “El Alamein” – tdavilio

Pretty remarkable when the song description absolutely nails the sound. There’s not a whole lot of battle lust being just a fruit but with this song in the background, you’ve got my battle cry.

3. “The Great Outback” – Louise Heaney

Good day mate! Louise, this took me back to my early childhood years watching Crocodile Dundee. Who can forget the line, “That’s not a knife [pulls out huge bowie knife] THAT’S a knife.”

4. “The Force of Life” – Kamarius

This is one of those hypnotic tracks that you gotta love. Nice stock music world beat where you are spinning lazily in the warm sun. I’m going to adorn all white linen and play some hand percussion now.

5. “A Triumphant Journey” – Fresh Ears Audio

This was every 80’s teenage boy’s anthem! You can just picture yourself sitting in bed staring up at that Molly Ringwald poster saying to yourself, “someday I’ll find you, someday…”

6. “Sakura Device” – TOYINVENTION

I googled “sakura device;” only Japanime popped up. I’ve gotta think that’s not exactly a sakura device. Instead, I’m going to go with a high-tech, sleek new product like this stock music song suggests.

7. “Salt Of Wormwood” – Daniel Knowler

You need to get your creep on?…err, well wait maybe – you need to get a little creepy in your video?…ok that still didn’t sound right. BUT if you want super creepy sounds, check this out.

8. “You” – Scoreweaver

ME?! Thank you! I’m genuinely pretty starved for attention, so I’m going to dedicate this song to myself. I totally dig this new integration of dubstep into commercials for the youth, so right on!

9. “Concupiscene” – Robert Gulya

You know I don’t speak Spanish, Baxter! So I had to, once again due to my ignorance, look this word up and voila! It means “strong passion and desire,” which nails this sound of the song.

10. “SOS” – DhruvaAliman

Woah…I mean, wooooooaaaaaah this song is catchy! Integrating the sound of an S.O.S. signal into your song, genius! But better yet, this was executed perfectly and is a top favorite of mine!

Huckleberry Heard It Through The Grapevine Week 3: Stock Music Licensing Specialist

Tunefruit-The-Hotness

 

Worry not everyone…  Huck is here with your weekly sampling platter of our ripest stock music tracks.  I’ve got an eclectic mix of tunes for you this week.

Let’s get into it:

Listen Now: Through The Grapevine July 21 Full Playlist

1.  Love Doesn’t Cost A Thingstevericemusic

For all you old souls out there, stevericemusic has got just the track for you.  Imagine a day in the park playing chess or strolling on the boardwalk, a cup of coffee in one hand, your loved one’s hand in the other.  No matter what, this accordion-led track will have your spirits high.

2.  CowabungaGarySWolk

And now something for you wild young folk.  Grab your surf board and get ready to hang ten after you grab some sodas at the surf shop.  GarySWolk’s surf-rock reverb is making waves through the speakers on this stock track.

3.  Funk TimeWalt Kosar

“I feel good!” is what James Brown would say if he heard this funky jam Walk Kosar has given us.  All aboard the Soul Train! Next stop Funky Town!

4.  Space Trip GamePlastic3

Prepare for lift off because Plastic3 is taking us on an intergalactic stock music rave flight.  The very cosmos itself cannot resist being taken by this track and moving its ever-expanding body to the beat.

5.  Know Your StrengthAndy Kotz-AKMusic Productions

Andy Kotz has constructed an entire futuristic city and within that city, there you are, relaxing at some upscale futuristic bar drinking your futuristic martini listening to this track seeping in from the overhead speakers.

6.  Curious GhostBenW

This mysterious and atmospheric track from BenW hints at an asian influence in its production at its beginning and then takes a serious left turn into a killer trip-hop track full of glitches, echoes, reverse effects, you name it.  Check out this artist’s other tracks because he creates excellent soundscapes for your earholes to get lost in.

7.  LyricallivingroomClassics

To end this week’s playlist, I’ll leave you guys with this beautiful and heart warming piano and flute led piece from livingroomClassics.  This track sounds as if it was pulled from a Miyazaki film soundtrack and the feeling you get from it stays with you long after it has ended.

Tunefruit Featured Stock Music License: OXEA (produced by @explainify)

As is usually the case with Explainify, when we get to license them a great stock music track, we know the explainer video they produce is going to be totally killer. And bam, just like mama told us, this video for OXEA is excellent.

As they tell it:

Our friends at OXEA, a German chemical manufacturing company, asked us to make an educational video explaining the chemical makeup and everyday uses of PVC and plasticizers to the general public. They were so much fun to work with, and had a ton of great ideas for the video! This fun, colorful, and incredibly informative video is an example of what happens when an animated video production company and a client truly collaborate to tell the best story possible.

Here’s what this fruit (Mango) knows. I want to write a song that uses the word plasticizer as a lyric. 🙂

3 Videos that show off how to use Dubstep Stock Music

Shhh. Speak no more. I will unveil for you this mysterious creature. Show you the hidden strengths. LISTEN. it’s coming…

DUBSTEP

“ALL HANDS ON DECK!” “PLUG YOUR EARS, CHILD!”

Honestly, what did you think when someone said, “Hey, my chill bromigo, this new dubstep artist is playing tonight.”

Probably – “Hmmm, dubstep? A bunch of dudes all dreaded out taking giant steps in some new dance craze?” Then you heard this “dubstep,” and oh, it’s actually a bunch of giant aliens stomping on computers because to untrained ears –

WHAT IS THAT NOISE?!

Next came the jokes – “Button mashers!” “Hope the Geek Squad is attending Ultra!” “Yeah…I can hit the spacebar too!”

But, let’s face it. Whether you are into dubstep or not, the genre is here to stay. More specifically, certain companies have tapped into this genre of stock music because more often than not, attracting young millennials means creating a technologically infused adrenaline hype with this type of video soundtrack. Need an example? Take GoPro, a company who consistently pushes the limit to capture incredible footage and pull from dubstep stock music to provide a killer soundtrack:

To be honest, looking at how GoPro successfully dropped their IPO and is currently valued at $3 billion, they might just know the power of using rockin’ video with awesome dubstep stock music. Just look at how much cooler this baby is than all of us due to GoPro’s ingenuity:

Now maybe you’re thinking – “It’s cool but our company doesn’t cater to extreme sports.” Don’t sweat. If you even dabble in the young, up-and-coming market, check out apparel gurus G Star Raw and their fresh video:

So, no. Dubstep is not for every marketing campaign. But do you want that hip sound all the youth have in their ears? Do you want your brand to push the envelope and appeal to the young, technologically savvy masses?

Then dive into our dubstep stock music and allow that background music to drop a wobble beat: Tunefruit Dubstep Stock Music

“Loving it” Weekly July 14th Playlist with Guava, Tunefruit’s Stock Music Specialist

Tunefruit-The-Hotness

I know you all have been waiting for it! Here’s this week’s taste of some fresh new music coming into our library that I just absolutely love!

Listen the playlist here: “Loving it” Stock Music Playlist Week 8

1. “Rise of a Man” – RubenLozano

The song sets you into sci-fi battlegrounds. A scene following an intense fight, where you were left for dead but still remain alive. Now you are picking yourself up, ready for vengeance.

2. “Ambient Meditation Music” – AGsoundtrax

Every once in a while I just have to sit back and think, “ah, yes…nature.”  Well if you’re like me, AGsoundtrax places you perfectly in a field of daisies, next to a babbling brook. Nice work.

3. “Breeze For Butterflies” – Mr.ruiZ

Mr.ruiz, you’ve done it again my fine sir! You’ve put that smile on my face, and I just flossed so all the better for everyone around me! Some simple, elegant beauty right here my friends.

4. “The End” – David Sestay

Need a romantic ending to your film? Need me to be the incredibly charming actor carrying the damsel away into the sunset? Well, I can’t do that, but David can certainly provide the music.

5. “What Lies Beneath” – dannypoit

Remember Batman Returns? You can’t forget Danny DeVito as “The Penguin.” Well, with those elements in mind, you know exactly what I mean when I say this song embodies Gotham City.

6. “Andante for Strings” – Abbas Premjee

I’ve never been to a ball but granted, I’m not from the 19th century. But you can’t deny a man his dream of dressing in a wig and slow dancing with a queen! Thanks Abbas for just the right song.

7. “Soul Longing” – Kamarius

Brace yourself for a mind trip through space. Beginning with a sci-fi, repetitious synth melody, the song expands into some heady, colourful layers. Time to adorn your space suits people.

8. “Determining Fate” – jjessep

I do love the epic, emotional cinematic soundtracks, and Mr. Jessep has written a beauty. My emotions are just running wild! Searching, hunting, seeking my destiny! My fate is in my hands!

9. “Blast Big Room Electro” – Branco G

If you’re above the age of 50 hold on tight!!! Branco has captured the music of the youth and boy, is it just a crunchy EDM track! Ugh! I’ve got my laptop on my shoulder just getting down!

10. “One Pirate Too Many” – PatrickMooreMusic

Wait, no! There can never be too many pirates, Patrick! Please let me on board this seafaring voyage! This is straight out of Pirates of the Caribbean and I just love that Capt. Sparrow.

Venture Atlanta and Tunefruit and iFusion Marketing…oh freaking my.

What can we say? iFusion’s Bart Zino (he’s a nice fella, and a heckuva interviewer) graciously included us in the latest blog for Venture Atlanta last week…chegg it out here:

Venture Atlanta Likes To Talk To Tunefruit

If you want to quick and dirty overview, we do that sort of thing. And really week, this fruit might add.

The subject of the article centered around music technology (we might be considered to be “in” that circle), and whether Atlanta has, supports, or grows that sort of talent, both on the company and personnel side.

Our answer was simple…we are here, we use tech to help customers more easily license music, and artists more easily sell their music, and we think Atlanta has been a big part of this effort to make our company a successful one.

Creating Your Explainer Video: 3 Reasons Stock Music is Key

Tunefruit-The-Hotness2

We are reprinting (or whatever it’s now called when you repost somone’s writing from a different website, in this case, Planet Nutshell) for everyone’s enjoyment.

Our very own Peach wrote this doozy:

Context means everything. In TV, movies, and even with the printed word, if the viewer or reader isn’t given some help with how to interpret what’s happening, she or he won’t be able to take away insight from what they’ve just experienced. And as a content creator, if you don’t frame your work with the appropriate contextual details, you won’t be able to get your point across. One of the simplest and most effective ways to create context is by adding a musical score.

The right song changes everything

Add a bombastic, triumphant orchestral piece to your video for running shoes to show how they can lead the runner to victory. Add a soft and sweet ukulele track in a video for diapers or baby food to show the warm and nurturing quality of the product. Make sure your song choices are thoughtful; if you don’t support your video with music that underscores your video’s message, the effect of your company’s message may be weakened.

Great video improves engagement

And great video often contains great music. No matter what your company does, a well-crafted explainer video that features appropriate music can be a huge boon to your business. According to MarketingSherpa, 100% more time is spent on pages that include video. Imagine the kind of increase in sales you’d see if your visitors spent twice as long on your site.

Explainer videos increase conversions

According to analytics provider, Comscore, retail site visitors who viewed video are 64% more likely to make a purchase than those who did not view video. That’s huge! Imagine that by posting a polished and professional video that explains the benefits of your business that you could increase sales by 64%. Simply amazing!

So, where do we go from here? In order to maximize the potential of your next explainer video, which by now I hope you see as beyond essential, you’ve got to make sure you’re empowering your video to be as impactful as possible. If you want to drive home your message, if you want to make sure you’re squeezing every last drop of persuasiveness from the pitch you’ll make to your potential customers, make sure you pick the sweetest, ripest tracks to score your spot. Any old ecommerce site can attract attention with an embedded Youtube clip and the promise of 90 seconds of distraction, but why not go the extra mile and put together an explainer that really rocks. With an explainer that clearly and simply explains who you are and what you do, supported by fresh music, your customers will soon be singing your praises.

Huckleberry Heard It Through The Grapevine Week 2: Stock Music Licensing Specialist

Tunefruit-The-Hotness

 

Hey there.  Huck here.  You may remember me from two weeks ago.  Or maybe you remember from somewhere else (People often come up to me and tell me I look just like a blueberry).  Either way, I’m back to make sure you get your weekly recommended number of servings of Tunefruit’s ripest stock music tracks.  Let’s get into it:

Click Here to listen to the Playlist: Through The Grapevine July 6 Full Stock Music Playlist

Now I don’t know about you guys, but I have been feeling good vibes all week.  Maybe it’s the summer sun.  Maybe it’s the fact that America just celebrated its independence.  Maybe I’ve just been really excited to feature more music for you guys to savor.  Who knows, but I’ve been feeling good, so this week I wanted to help get you in the same feel-good stock music groove.  Lather on some sunscreen because we’re about to spend some time in the sun.

1.  Cloud NineJoe Capalbo

To start things off here, grab your finest dancing shoes and clear enough room on the dancefloor to get down.  Joe Capalbo knows you’ve got the dancing fever and wants to help out.  This sugar pop track has all the works for a sure-fire summer jam.

2.  Well, Not Everything Went According To Plan…Vlad Els

If the name of this track alone doesn’t hook you, the groove that it immediately sets in will.  It seems to me that Vlad Els reached right into a 1970’s cop drama and plucked out this psychedelically funky groove.

3.  Taxi DriverNick Nicolas

If you don’t feel like you should be drinking a daiquiri out of a coconut and eating caribbean food on a tropical island while listening to this track, I think you need to keep listening to this track (and drinking daiquiris) until you do.  Get your calypso groove on and soak in paradise.

4.  Balkan PartySOUNDOTCOM

Since we’re in such a dancing mood right now, I want to queue up this dance track on the turntables real quick.  Combining euro-house beats with the styles of traditional balkan music, Soundotcom comes bursting through in massive beat matching glory.  I can barely keep my fingers on the keyboard right now, I’m dancing too much.  I’ll see you guys on the club floor.

5.  The Werewolf Who Hated Other Werewolvesfabclaxton

Oh man, another track with a killer name makes this week’s list!  fabclaxton has channeled his inner Devo to create this synth-heavy glitzy pop jam that captures everything we all loved about the 80’s from neon stirrup pants to big hairdos with way too much hairspray.  Grab your boom box and get ready to dance.

6.  Liverpool to LondonGarySWolk

GarySWolk is quick to remind us of the swingin’ sixties with this sun-bleached surfer track that makes me want to shimmy and twist the day away on the sand in my striped surfer shorts and oversized sunglasses.  Maybe we could even grab a couple soda pops.

7.  GenerationsPhil1975

Alright beach bums, you can keep on relaxing.  Phil1975 has you covered.  We’re gonna end this week’s playlist nice and easy.  I’m sure you’re tired from all the dancing you’ve been doing.  Let this dreamy, reverb-soaked surfer track wash over you like rays from the sun while you spend a lazy day laying out surf-side.

Tunefruit Featured Stock Music License: Styku and MyBodee

Tunefruit-Featured-License BIG

Styku-logo

“MyBodee is Ultra-Portable body scanning for health, fitness, and fashion”

We’re totally over the moon to see the newest Tunefruit Featured Stock Music License from Styku, those fashion tech experts looking to take over the world!

Styku was selected as an early developer to build new 3D sensing apps on Project Tango prototype devices. Last week, the Google Project Tango team presented their final face scanning app that was built in less than 3 weeks to thousands of developers at Google’s I/O conference. LG will be the first OEM to support Project Tango.

The great stock music used in this video has lots bleeps, bloops, reverse pianos, and sparse-but-very-much electronic percussive drum elements. So, pretty much perfect for this video.
