To celebrate the recent addition of 5 fresh new international production music libraries, Mama Dance is offering free music searches to all South African TV and Film producers, final sound mix engineers, editors and Ad agencies.
Mama Dance has recently expanded its production music offering by licensing the exciting and extensive Atomica, Decibel Collective, Catapult, Supatunes and Hi Fi catalogues for all African territories.
These international libraries are in addition to the 46 album Mama Dance! Music Library which is the largest collection of South African production music with genres as diverse as boeremusiek, kwela and kwaito, melodic rock and African cinematic scores.
“Our production music offering has grown 1000% in the past year and to celebrate this we are offering our clients free music searches. They just need to send us a music brief or an example of the types of music they often require. Within a few hours we will send them a link to an iTunes like playlist with suggested tracks that they can audition or download. The tracks are all hosted on our new website so no more attached MP3’s via email.
Our new online music search system is very fast and very simple to use – our clients are loving it as they can immediately forward the playlists to their clients for final approvals and signoffs. We’re currently getting over 4000 streams a month on the new website” says Mama Dance CEO Craig McGahey
After the huge success of recent signing Supatunes , Mama Dance Music for Africa has picked up Atomica, another leading US production music label.
“When we heard the quality and variety of music on Atomicas catalogue, we were determined to license the library for the African territory. It is the perfect complement to the African flavours on the Mama Dance library and to the edgy nature of Supatunes material.” says Mama Dance CEO Craig McGahey “After much negotiation we are proud to announce that South African producers, directors, editors and final mix engineers can now access over 7000 Atomica tracks directly from www.mamadancemusic.co.za”
As the name implies, Atomica is a powerful and simple music library for commercial, entertainment, broadcast and corporate production.
It has more than 196 albums of quintessential underscores and dramatic themes that offer variety and depth. It is incorporated in the fast and efficient Mama Dance Music for Africa website that provides simple access to music with straightforward licensing directly or through NORM.
In line with the Mama Dance philosophy, Atomica delivers a refreshing alternative to the mammoth libraries and fly-by-night media aggregators. Their passion is powerful music. Their distinction is simplicity. Their mission is to keep you competitive.
To hear a powerful and simple solution to your audio needs, check out www.mamadancemusic.co.za and listen to any of the original themes from Mama Dance, Supatunes and Atomica.
Anyone can listen and search but if you wish to download; it’s simple with a quick registration process.
