Instrumentals Needed for Big $ TV Commercial

Below is a special opportunity that we wanted to give you a heads up about. Just got the word about this project today, and TAXI needs the music by TOMORROW, 5:00 PM (PDT) on Tuesday, April 17, 2012. You can find this listing under the Instrumental (Film & TV) genre in the Submit Music section of your hosting site.

Leading Madison Avenue Ad Agency needs HIP HOP, ELECTRO or CHILLOUT instrumentals for national TV ad. They are looking for SOPHISTICATED, CINEMATIC and HIGH-END instrumentals with a TEMPO between 85-100 BPM. The agency wants songs that have their "OWN DISTINCT VOICE" and a sense of "GRIT and SOPHISTICATION." Songs must be RELEVANT, HIP, ENGAGING and CONTEMPORARY. Songs should also have a bit of SEX APPEAL.

Quoting the agency, "The track should perhaps be fairly MINIMAL in INSTRUMENTATION, POSITIVE-sounding, and will sonically allow room for voice over."

Here are some references that came to mind:
RJD2 - Smoke & Mirrors -
Sofa Surfers - Sofa Rockers (Dorfmeister Remix) -
Jay Z - Heart of a City (Ain't No Love) instrumental -

You must own or control 100% of the Master and Composition rights to submit for this listing. NO SAMPLES of other songs or artists can be incorporated into your track. As always, do NOT copy or rip off the referenced artists or songs in any way, shape, or form! Broadcast Quality is needed (excellent home recordings are fine.) ESTIMATED fee for this license is $20,000-$50,000. This is DIRECT-to-the-AGENCY, so you'll KEEP 100% of the fee. Broadcast Quality is needed (excellent home recordings are fine). If you ARE chosen, the Ad Agency will contact you DIRECTLY. Please submit ONE to THREE songs online. All submissions will be screened on a YES/NO BASIS by a person Hand-Picked by the agency rep. NO FULL CRITIQUES FROM TAXI. Submissions must be received no later than 5:00 PM (PDT) on Tuesday, April 17, 2012. TAXI #Y120417IN
