I’m curious as to what an editor (who writes about music supervisor playlists) is listening to?
Does Emma Griffiths or Synchblog have a public Spotify playlist?
thanks for the information https://www.synchtank.com/
I didnt see much trace of Afrobeats or Urbano on these particular supervisors playlists…. but maybe they have privately held playlists with that kind of music on?
I would like to send my self composed instrumental music to as many music supervisors as possible in consideration for them to sample my music for a sync licensing deal.
Please advise how I should do this. I have Cd’s and MP3 files available.
Thank you for your help and advice!
