1) Genesis – “We Don’t Ask”

The sheer might of Audra Mae’s vocals is what drives this spot. For years, Mae has been a contributing writer and vocalist for The All-American Rejects, Sons of Anarchy (TV Show) and Avicii. Nice to finally see her name on the marquis.

Agency: Innocean USA – Huntington Beach
Music: “The Real Thing” by Audra Mae & The Almighty Sound

2) Apple “iPhone 10 X”

This is actually the second time Apple used a Sofi Tukker song to launch a new product. The first time, Apple staffers came across the duo’s song “Drinkee” on SoundCloud, sent them a life-changing email, then used the track to launch Apple Watch. The New York-based artist consists of dancer/vocalist Sophie Hawley-Weld and producer Tucker Halpern. The pair met while attending Brown University.

Agency: TBWA\Chiat\Day, Los Angeles
Music: “Best Friend (feat. NERVO, The Knocks & Alisa Ueno)” by SOFI TUKKER

3) Proctor & Gamble – “Thank You, Mom”

Milck, the singer reaching into your guts as you watch this emotional spot about motherhood, is an L.A. based singer/songwriter. Milck is no stranger to harnessing the power of women. In 2017, she debuted her song “Quiet” via a cappella flash mobs at the Women’s March on Washington.

Agency: Wieden+Kennedy
Music: “Ooh Child” by Milck

4) “We Are The University of Georgia” – University of Georgia

College PSA’s like this used to be amateur-hour, wherein the participating schools got free airtime therefore the student film department threw something together. But with the help of this Coldplay-inspired track, the University of Georgia advances the medium one step forward. Not unlike kicker Rodrigo Blankenship advanced the Dawgs towards what should have been a national title with a 51-yard field goal in overtime. University of Alabama, you are Death Star. The Jedi will return. We will be back.

In the late 90’s, whenever clients asked me to compose electronica tracks, I would secretly roll my eyes. To me, the music of Kraftwerk and Vangelis lacked warmth. Sure, techno was easy enough to create in a home studio and it was lucrative to do projects without musician costs. But I didn’t get the genre.
That is, until I partied in London with my step-brother. I will never forget that night for as long as I live. The club was called Bagley’s – a huge multi-room warehouse where raves were held on a regular basis. The DJ spun progressive  trance tracks by artists like Paul Van Dyk; wherein pulsating themes built for minutes at time before exploding into four-on-the-floor grooves that penetrated my soul. Everybody was hugging each other. We didn’t leave the club until 10 AM the next morning. Narcotics may or may not have been involved.
After that, I understood techno.
I’ve enjoyed watching the genre come of age. My wife and I are hooked on Stranger Things (available on Netflix) which is scored entirely with blips, bleeps, beats, LFOs, oscillators and filters. Composers Kyle Dixon and Michael Stein discard my pre-London attitudes about synthesizers (“Use them only when real instruments aren’t in the budget!”). Instead, they let synths be synths. And it’s absolutely glorious.
That’s also what these MusicRevolution musicians did when they created the tracks included in our brand new collection – Modern Electronica 217. I guess they were with me that night in London. I wouldn’t remember:

In 1975, a young untested film director wrapped production on his first major studio film. He was feeling hopeless because although the script called for several shots of a giant shark, the mechanical creature created by his art department failed through most of the shoot. And because most of the principal photography was done on the ocean, the overages were massive.

Going into post-production, he didn’t have the shots to show the shark in a literal sense, so he was forced to merely suggest the shark through great acting performances by Robert Shaw and Richard Dreyfuss; plus shots of the ocean…plus music composed by John Williams. Because the project had drifted so far away from the original plan, Steven Spielberg thought his career was toast.

In just 78 days, Jaws overtook The Godfather as the highest-grossing film in North America. It become the first film in history to earn over $100 million in the US. Almost thirty years after its release, Jaws was selected by the Library of Congress for preservation in the United States National Film Registry, being deemed “culturally, historically, or aesthetically significant”.

If you’re a creative person who needs to get that first blockbuster movie under your belt without spending a lot of money, consider the horror/suspense genre; because your most valuable asset as a story teller is the audience’s fear of what they can’t see. That doesn’t cost you a dime.

The Blair Witch Project (1999) – shot for less than $60,000 – went to gross $250 million at the box office. At no point during that film does any violent act occur on screen. Everything is suggested, implied and heard.

“You’re guaranteed to make money doing a horror movie,” explains Craig Miller, film producer and chair of the Georgia Film, Music and Digital Entertainment Advisory Commission. “Lots of directors will start with a horror film because they have an audience, have a niche, and you can make them relatively inexpensively. Alfred Hitchcock made a career of never actually showing the horror. A talented filmmaker can scare the bejesus out of their audience with great acting, great editing and of course great music.”

So, dear filmmaker, MusicRevolution is proud to offer you this frightening collection of horror/terror tracks that will have your viewers chewing their nails….not because Halloween is right around the corner, but rather because your audience thinks it’s right around the corner waiting with a bloody axe.
