Continuing our work on the franchise, we recently wrapped up music supervising Fallout 4, set to be one of the biggest video games of 2016. Gaming bible IGN rated the game a 9.5, calling it "amazing", and though we're a bit biased, we have to agree. Featuring tracks from such vocal greats as Bing Crosby, Nat King Cole, Billie Holiday and The Ink Spots, it continues the series' awesome juxtaposition of future and past. Congrats to the team at Bethesda Softworks on another huge hit. (Read more about Fallout 4 music here.)
Surf and lifestyle apparel brand Reef's annual Miss Reef video has become a hotly (and we do mean hot) anticipated fixture in the webisphere. So we were excited to music supervise the 2016 edition, shot at Costa Allegre on Mexico's Pacific coast. With nearly 600,000 views in its first week, it's a true branding juggernaut. And the song? "Dreamsicle Bomb" by one of our faves, Black Moth Super Rainbow. Its chill, sexy vibe goes perfectly with the, uh, visuals.
As avid snowboarders ourselves, we're always stoked to work with legendary brand Burton on their annual Peace Park documentary and Burton Presents rider series. This year's Peace Park doc features Tom Petty's "Running Down A Dream", while Burton Presents features tunes from The Heavy, The Oh Sees, Sharon Jones & The Dap-Kings, and one of our (and Metallica's) faves, obscure 70s hard-rockers Budgie, in the mind-blowing Ben Ferguson segment. Props to Burton's team of phenomenally talented riders and editors for making 2016 their best work yet.
There's something very gratifying about landing a song that a client really, really wants, and we get to do it all the time. Some recent examples include Dan Deacon for Polaris Snowmobiles (for Brain Farm), The Walkmen for Nixon, and Shakey Graves for Specialized. Got a song you gotta have? Hit us up!
We’re thrilled to have music supervised the highly anticipated skate film We Are Blood (released 8/13). Directed by skate film auteur Ty Evans (Pretty Sweet, Fully Flared), produced by Brain Farm Cinema (The Art Of Flight, which we also music supervised) in conjunction with Green Label Films, and featuring tracks from Metallica, M.I.A., Future Islands and others, it’s nothing short of epic. Find a screening near you! 
We recently worked closely with outdoor gear mainstay JanSport and their SF-based agency TEAK to identify and book bands to perform at JanSport’s 2015 Live Outside art and music activations in Sao Paulo, Brazil and San Francisco. We also licensed the artists’ music for the resulting videos. Check ‘em out then see the case study here.

Speaking of BrandsForBands, Oxnard, CA-based portable audio brand Scosche recently enlisted the platform to source songs from 8 artists for inclusion in its retail product demo units. See the case study here.

Earlier this year we booked Death Valley Girls and Cosmonauts, two of the many awesome bands on Orange County’s Burger Records, to play sets at the Skullcandy booth at the 2015 Consumer Electronics Show. Kudos to the bands for putting on great shows and to Skullcandy for once again proving themselves to be the coolest headphone and portable audio brand on the planet. See the case study here.
We're thrilled and proud that the words "award-winning" can now precede any mention of our proprietary licensing platform BrandsForBands. The site won Gold at the 2014 Hermes Creative Awardsin the Website Overall/Professional Service category. A giant high-five and slap on the back to our awesome developer JLOOP for this momentous achievement. Congrats, guys. NOW GET BACK TO WORK!
