Santa Monica, CA (August 21, 2017)—Killer Tracks has launched GUM Tapes, a new label developed by Paris-based Green United Music.
The initial release includes 11 albums of newly-produced, never-before-available tracks created for film, television and advertising by some of Europe’s hottest composers. All are available immediately for licensing and sync exclusively through Killer Tracks, a source for pre-cleared production music. GUM Tracks plans to release five additional albums every month.
With studios in Paris, London and Shanghai, Green United Music has created music for some of the world’s best-known brands, including Peugeot, Dior, Yves Saint Laurent, Nike, Levi’s, Vodafone, Samsung and L’Oréal.
“We’ve been fans of the GUM team for years,” said Andrew Donahue, director of marketing, Killer Tracks. “They produce multi-awarding winning, high quality work that is consistently fresh, authentic and on target with the needs of the market. We’re very impressed with their new work and excited to introduce it to the North American market.”
Produced by veteran GUM producers François Nguyen and Etienne Colin, the first 11 GUM Tapes releases draw on the incredible scope of the company’s artistry. Described as an ingenious synthesis of the contemporary and the classic, the collection spans a range of advertising, cinema and trailer genres with tracks that are touching, emotional, dramatic, catchy and intelligent — sometimes all at the same time.
