Riptide Music Group (l-r): Bob Kaminsky, Keatly Haldeman, Rich Goldman
Los Angeles, CA (February 28, 2014)—Los Angeles-based music sync licensing and publishing companies Riptide Music and Pigfactory have merged to form a new, combined entity branded Riptide Music Group, LLC.

The new company’s services include the worldwide synchronization of music for advertising, movie trailers, television, film and videogames. In addition, the company will also provide services for the international collection of publishing royalties. Riptide Music Group will leverage its digital accounting, administration, and distribution systems to proactively exploit its clients' music catalogs and copyrights, on a global scale.

Riptide Music was founded in Los Angeles in 1999 by president Rich Goldman, with Bob Kaminsky serving as executive VP. Keatly Haldeman, CEO, co-founded Pigfactory Music Publishing in Los Angeles in 2005.

The new Riptide Music Group is comprised of three operating units. Riptide Rights will oversee publishing and master rights for administration and sync representation. Riptide One is a curated catalog of independent artists, bands, producers and composers which offers a diverse range of music for licensing in advertising, movie trailers, television, film and videogames. Pacifica Music Library is a modern production music library previously established as a joint venture between Riptide Music and Pigfactory with over 20,000 tracks of music.

Riptide Music Group’s newly combined music roster includes songs by Fatboy Slim (whose song "Eat, Sleep, Rave, Repeat” was recently #2 on the UK charts,) Iggy Pop, the Turtles, Deadly Avenger, Airborne Toxic Event (whose single “Hell and Back” is currently on the radio,) and Dirty Vegas (winner of the first ever Grammy Award for Electronic Music), whose new EP is represented exclusively by Riptide Music Group.
