Press release from Future Classic
Sydney record label Future Classic, who recently celebrated their 5 year anniversary, have launched a music synchronisation and licensing agency called Stylus (whereismystylus.com).
Stylus provides film directors, producers, music supervisors, advertising creatives and anyone else needing music for a project with streamlined access to a deep catalogue of quality independent repertoire from artists and labels curated by Future Classic.
"Our role is to reduce stress for music supervisors by providing them with well-targeted music to suit their brief" says director Nathan McLay, who when not marrying music with images can be found DJing at bars like the Hilton's Zeta, The Loft and The Tilbury in Sydney.
Labels already represented by Stylus include German future jazz giant Compost Records, legendary hip hop and funk label Barely Breaking Even (BBE) home to artists like J Dilla, Roy Ayres, Ty, Dimitri From Paris and Parisian godfather of chillout Sebastien Tellier’s Record Makers imprint to name a few.
Stylus also fosters direct relationships with artists and their managers such as Sidwho? (solo project of the bass player from Empire of the Sun) and Berlin indie darlings The Whitest Boy Alive being among the first to embrace the service.
Stylus offers clients broader musical and catalogue scope than they get from working with a single label, while retaining the fast turnaround times and other synergies that working with independent labels and publishers offers compared with their major counterparts.
Many people in the TV and film world will be familiar with Future Classic's newly appointed Account Manager for Stylus – Thomas Studdy – who comes across from his previous licensing and account management role at Thought Equity.
