BBC Radio 1 DJ Huw Stephens and LA based music supervisor Aminé Ramer have launched a new music supervision outfit, Land Of Sound.
Land of Sound will specialise in music searches, licensing and bespoke compositions for adverts, film and TV.
The transatlantic company, with offices in LA and London, will also work on brand and artist partnerships.
Ramer has more than 15 years’ experience in the business, having previously worked on projects for Focus Features, Sony Classics, Showtime, Warner Bros, Netflix, MTV, Coca-Cola and Samsung among others.
Stephens is a proven tastemaker and currently curates over nine hours of music a week for BBC Radio 1.
His TV credits also include presenting coverage at Reading Festival and hosting Glastonbury Festival on BBC TV and radio.
Ramer said: ‘We decided to launch Land of Sound after talking about how important the art of discovery is for both of us.
‘Over the years we have turned each other onto new and important acts. To put both of our areas of expertise together to form a fresh take on supervision is a dream! My passion for finding the right music in film, TV and ads as well as the licensing processes this involves, is matched by Huw’s years of being the consummate tastemaker and proven abilities as one!’
Stephens added: ‘We are excited to launch Land of Sound at this great time for music supervision. With Aminé in LA and myself in London, we swap music tips and ideas constantly, and are excited to launch this project. Aminé’s track record in supervision speaks for itself, and together we are excited to take on interesting and diverse projects.’
The duo will be managed and represented by London-based agency Manners McDade.
