Instrumental Music Needed for MTV Catfish & Vice

Fresh music needed for MTV Catfish & Vice – These shows are requesting fresh batches of new instrumental music. Below is a list of each shows needs. Deadline is on-goin as usual but they’ve asked for us to ramp up submissions.. No new reference tracks provided so please watch the shows to get an idea of what styles are needed. You must be a member to submit. Thanks guys!

MTV Catfish:

  • Indie Pop
  • Indie electro
  • Indie rock
  • Indie hip hop – that skews toward pop
  • We can still use emotional (hopeful/melancholy/reflective) type cues and tension (light suspense… think worry not fear/investigative/driving), but the indie genres are the highest priority.
  • Suspense/Investigative/Tension music – this is the bulk of the Catfish sound! Should be dark but not too scary/horror movie like
  • Ambient/droney tension
  • Sparse – tracks that are pulsing or have ticking sounds
  • Driving tension – tracks (still minimal though) with a build
  • Weird instrumentation (chimes, glitchy sounds, didgeridoo)
  • Electronic/Dubby tension MINIMAL
  • Sparse Tense/suspenseful hip hop
  • Pop/Rock and electro pop
  • MINIMAL emotional music – both sad and hopeful. Lots of single note cues work – especially reverse ambient guitar (wahh-wahh sounds). Tracks that are sparse and heart breaking as well as cautiously hopeful. Electronic elements work well in these types of cues. Piano ballads or strum-my guitar cues do not. Tracks with slight builds can work well!
  • Mid-tempo and uptempo indie pop, indie rock, folk and electro pop – optimistic, fun, slightly quirky tracks for travel montages and more light hearted scenes. Tracks that build can work here. Only current sounding cues that should also be somewhat minimal so there can be dialogue on top of them. NO EDM. Most should be optimistic but some can be more tense or melancholy. Nothing too percussive or distracting.
  • Resolution music – Each episode will end with some sort of resolution. Many will be bittersweet so we will need music to help show that. These songs can be emotional, cautiously hopeful, have slow builds. We will need a variety.

  Deadline: On-going

Type of Submission:  Non-Exclusive Instrumentals


Vice
• Minimal, Ambient (some can even be a bit sad, melancholic)
• Tension (drones, pensive cues, dark investigative, etc.)
• Ambient
• Eerie/creepy (not to scary)
• Melodic
• Melancholy
• Tension (drones, pensive cues, dark investigative, etc.)
• Emotional – Positive, Reflective, Sad,
• Percussion
• Building/Driving
• World – Ambient, Tension, Percussive, Middle East, Africa, Asia, Russia
Try to avoid going over the top. Minimalism works best. Study the series watching the Vice on TV shows or even Viceland – to get a feel for the show. It’s actually a really great show to watch and it’s very easy to feel the vibe when you see the topics discussed on-screen.

Deadline: On-going

Music Still Needed For TV

Hope everyone is safe & healthy!

Just wanted to shoot over a reminder to say we’re still open for business, accepting and populating our TV publishers catalog with YOUR music! 
 

Times are tough, but push forward – we want you to succeed and we can’t help you if you aren’t sending us your music. 🙂


Remember – those who get placements are the ones submitting in tracks. Now’s a perfect time to get back on the grind and start cranking out those tv cues while others aren’t.
 

UPDATE:

Right now – we are focusing strictly on instrumental cues which are usually 90-120 second in length tracks that evoke a mood, style, or genre.

Hold off on any full songs with vocals. We’’ll let you know once we can start that back up.
 

Ps. Be sure to submit alt mixes with each cue to maximize your placement potential! 
 

Overall – stay safe & get your instrumental cues firing up and start getting them submitted in!

Production Tip Of The Day
“The best way to predict your future is to create it.” – Abraham Lincoln

Music Placement Strategy Tip:
Create Valuable Content – Don’t waste your time creating music people do not want to use or hear. Keep it modern and ask yourself questions like, Does this music sound modern, Is this a style that someone would want to use commercially, how can I be of maximum service and cater to the needs of today’s music industry? What type of music is actually getting placed and what style do they actually want? Another thing: Watch the TV shows and listen!! Do some research. You’ll hear what is being used and wanted in terms of style and type of music. Another thing that can devalue and break your songs chance of placement is how you structure or lay out your track. Create/Build your tracks with your customer in mind. Put yourself in the shoes of a music supervisor adding music into a show or film.

They need transitions to move from one scene to the next, intros, outros, quick jump ins, vibes, moods, moment makers etc. Taking a day to strategize or do some research is super important! Secondly, recognizable and modern sounding tracks… you can’t go wrong with those! Listen to the Billboard top 100 tracks – those styles are in right now and always a good clue to what will work and is in popular demand. Lastly, create alt mixes of each cue you create! TV placement is some what of a numbers game. The more quality tracks you create and distribute, the more opportunities you’ll have to get placements. Another positive is when you create more and more tracks, your production skills increase, and your personal music catalog grows. This is great for you.
 Do some math – if you sent us 2 cues with 3 alt mixes each – giving you a total of 8 tracks a week, you would have over 400+ tracks submitted tracks in a year. That’s a great goal for each of you and puts you in a top position to see lots of placements $$$$ Think about it? 2 cues and a few alt mixes a week? That’s not hard at all to achieve. Overall, for best results – just stay consistent, write regularly and you should be golden! Let’s Gooo! 
Ok go write and fill that pipeline!

Submission Reminders:

  • Add 10-30 keywords in your tracks meta data. (The More The Better)
  • Create and Submit Material! (Can’t get TV placements without music)
  • Be Consistent (The future you will thank you)
  • Send Quality over Quantity
  • Watch and Listen to the music on the shows (Not sure what’s placing? Watch THE SHOWS!) 😀
  • Send Alt Mixes*** (If you are not exporting out alt mixes seriously start doing it!)
