One of our TOTALLY FAVORITE AND LOVELY AND AWESOME FRIENDS, Wistia, does this cool little Friday blog feature called Non-Sequitur Fridays. Customer Champion Jordan Munson did his first official video (he’s done two other videos, but they don’t count, so stop asking) for his blog post today. Of course, he used @Tunefruit to find the perfect track.

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

Tunefruit is Going Bananas: Does Mother’s Day music even exist?

Tunefruit-Is-Going-Bananas

 

Hey there.

It’s sort of funny to think about, but does Mother’s Day really have a specific type of music that the holiday is associated with?

Is it all happy ukulele and bouncy rhythms like this track: Ukulele Music For Mother’s Day

Or maybe it’s lovey-dovey (is that how you spell that totally crazy word thing?) and kind-hearted piano music: Piano Music For Mother’s Day

You know what, it’s probably more about the strings and harps: String and Harp Music for Mother’s Day

Maybe it doesn’t matter…your mom will love you know matter what type of music you license for this gloriously awesome day of mom celebration.

Tunefruit is Going Bananas: A Little Wistia Shoutout

Our very good friends over at Wistia (ok, we’re not good friends in the lets-go-see-a-movie-together kind of way, but we do return each other’s phone calls and emails) made a thoughtful little mention of us in their most recent (and last) Top Hat Tuesday blog post.

While their Top Hat idea might not have had long-term viability, we were happy to be a small part of it (we supplied the old-timey music they used).

If you don’t already know about @wistia, you probably should take two minutes and check them out. They are one of the top alternatives to YouTube for professional video hosting.

Tunefruit Knows the Hotness: Explainify and Reelseo.com

Tunefruit-The-Hotness

Ever wonder what goes into making an Explainer Video, and why prices vary so much? Sure you have. And if, like this fruit, you have jumped onto your Google machine, you realize that there are several companies offering a range of different types of videos. Do you want a stick figure explainer, or motion graphics? How long should the video be? How much should a video cost to produce depending on the animation style? Will it save your failing fake-whoopee cushion business (your mom was right, the idea was totally deflating).

You know…now that we’ve gone down this whoopee cushion path, here are the 20 sounds a whoopee cushion can make: 20 Sounds a Whoopee Cushion Makes.

Ok, back on track.

To help the thousands of businesses that will be looking for a new Explainer Video for their business this year, Eric Hinson (the genius behind Explainer Video company Explainify) has written, and of course created, an Explainer Video to, ahem…explain how to choose an Explainer Video.

It’s so meta, dude.

Check out Eric’s entire post by clicking on this screen shot (and, of course, he used Tunefruit for the music in the video!):

Tunefruit is Going Bananas: Malone and Co. and Mango

Tunefruit-Is-Going-BananasMangoNYC
Because Kate over at Malone & Co. is pretty much the coolest person ever, she thought of us when she saw this subway art in NYC (which is short for New York City, a place where dreams come true and rent is $4 per square foot…whoa). Thankfully, she had a black permanent marker in her purse and scrawled MANGO next to the boombox dude.

OK…I made up that last part, but Kate sure didn’t clarify whether the name was there before or only AFTER she snapped the shot. That’s straight baller, and Kate, we love you for it. You go ahead and show NYC what Nebraska is all about.

Go Entrepreneur Go

The always fabulous, always cool AJ Joiner of Go Entrepreneur Go spent a little time interviewing Mango (who may or may not be writing this blog in the third person…you will need to ask him yourself) last month. Thankfully, AJ was able to decipher our ramblings and piece together one heckuva an interview.

Folks, we tackle the hard subjects in this interview. Srsly (I have cousin who writes like this on Facebook, so it’s totes cool). Want to know more about how Tunefruit works? Listen now. Want to hear our opinion on the Patriots this season? You. Are. Out. Of. Luck.

Tunefruit is Going Bananas: What does Crossfit have to do with finding great music for video?

Tunefruit-Is-Going-Bananas

Intern blog post…watch out!:
Huckleberry hails from Connecticut. After a short stint of walking the streets of NYC at 4 a.m. (with a tuba), he finally had enough dough for a bus ticket to Atlanta where he graciously accepted the job of “overworked, underpaid intern.” After all, what’s a berry gonna do with money?

Hey guys, before we get started I have something I need to get off my chest… My name is Huckleberry, and I’m a Crossfitter. Yes, I am a member of that weird cultish gym that has strange acronyms for things that don’t need acronyms. We alienate people by telling literally everyone we see that we are more hardcore than they are. You may have seen someone wearing a T-shirt saying “My warm-up is your workout.” Or my personal favorite:

crossfitsalem

(Crossfit Salem. We will kill you)

This morning (read: 5 AM) I was officiating a team’s workout in preparation for the Crossfit Games Open. The whole point of it was to do as many reps as possible in a certain amount of time. This guy I’m watching starts out wicked (I’m from the northeast, deal with it) fast and then falls quickly to a snails pace and it’s killing me. He is much stronger and faster than I am, but I could keep up with him. I’m screaming at him to fix his form and to think.

Suddenly…his pace doubles.

He was working twice as hard, using twice the energy he needed to. You can’t solve your problems by brute force! You still have to do things right!

YOU. HAVE. TO. BE. EFFICIENT.

At Tunefruit, we pride ourselves in doing things right (and efficiently). We care about you guys and don’t want you to waste your time searching for killer tracks. That’s why we curate our catalog and why we created our Deep Tagging™ system.  You search in Google and get 10 million hits but only look at the first two pages of results. We give you the equivalent of the first three pages – just in case.

And, while Google doesn’t curate results, we do. Every track that is considered for inclusion into Tunefruit’s catalog goes through a process of two human ears listening, tagging, describing, genre-picking, and sometimes being deleted. So, when you jump on our site, with it’s track mouse-over ability, and do a search for Batman, all you find is awesome, totally relevant, not-at-all-sucky stock music.

CrossFit and Tunefruit, more similar than you would think. Right?
