Santa Monica, CA (August 19, 2019)—Universal Publishing Production Music company Killer Tracks has launched joint production music label Sonic Beat Records in partnership with composer and music producer Sebastian Robertson.
The collaboration launches with more than 170 albums covering contemporary styles, genres, themes, moods and emotions. The entire collection is available now for streaming, downloading and licensing through the Killer Tracks website.
Robertson is the son of rock and roll legend Robbie Robertson and has been a working musician since his teens. The development of Sonic Beat Records builds on his work as a film and television composer. Best known for his long association with Access Hollywood and MTV, Robertson has more than 100 credits as a composer across scripted and unscripted series, documentaries, sports programs, advertising and features.
The core of Sonic Beat Records centers on contemporary pop and mood music, along with forays into a variety of styles such as country, rock, house music and cool jazz. Recently, Robertson has been exploring the latest waves of emotional hip hop and modern soul. All of the tracks in the collection were created for production use and designed to be edited into show formats, film soundtracks, marketing media and ads.
“I follow trends popular with the youth market and produce new work to fit what kids like and are listening to,” Robertson said. “When music supervisors need it, we’re ready with tracks that match the latest styles.”
After early experience in bands (and success as a children’s book author), Robertson increasingly focused on writing music for television and film. Along with being regularly featured on Access Hollywood and Access Hollywood Live, Robertson’s music has been included in such shows as Extra, Ridiculousness, NBC Sports and Fresh Off the Boat.
Robertson wrote the score for the award-winning documentary Survivors Guide to Prison as well as the films Walk of Shame and Condemned. With friend and frequent collaborator Daniel Davies, he co-wrote songs featured in the films Cover Versions and The Vatican Diaries. He has also contributed to several of his father’s musical projects, playing drums on the album Music for the Native Americans and creating effects for How to Become Clairvoyant.
