Working with Scuta and Tom at Soviet Science, GoDaddy went our way with this bongo bass fest.  Keeping it simple is so often the way in the world of ad music; this is a prime example.

Babbel Worldwide sonic branding

February 6, 2020 adland

DLMDD apply scientific method to the world of sonic branding, and they develop comprehensive musical guidelines for their clients.  It’s then up to composers to translate this into original music and sound. Babbel went nuts for our piece which simplified their musical brief down to a double bass audio signature of a perfect fifth.  Deliverables were a few different versions of the mnemonic / sting and a brand track that they’ll use over a number of platforms. media coverage here:Read More

Amazon Prime Day global campaign 2019

August 5, 2019 adland

Working with the absolute legends at DLMDD and the new breed of top London session cats, I created a New Orleans second line ver of Bill Withers’ Lovely Day.  It went absolutely everywhere and got a great reaction.  John Blease (https://johnblease.com) was around, and we recorded drums and some extra horns at his place in Brockley.  Other horns were done at my studio, and vocals were tracked at Metropolis with a 10 piece choir.  HUGE SOUND!

New Range Rover Evoque – I Found A Place In My Heart

April 23, 2019 adland

This tune’s causing a stir at the moment on the latest Range Rover ad.  I collaborated with lyrical god Tommy Antonio on the song which we wrote especially for the spot.  Emma Smith sounds incredible on it (as usual!).  Hopefully the full length ver will appear soonish.  It was great to collaborate again with Emma after all of our stuff in a similar vein for DeWolfe.  Tracks like this one Sunrise With You. Enjoy!! Find Your Heaven with Dom James ftRead More

Working with The Elements and some of my fave horn players in London, these spots for Miller Lite bring together huge beats and punchy low brass. Combination of real and synth brass gives it a great swagger.
