Taxi Music Forward -Middle Eastern Trap Instrumental 

..Which means: “Hey cool track, I'm going to pass this on. It may be usable to the TV/Film/Publishing pro that will hear it next."

I thought I'd try to get that sound you hear when pulling up behind, beside, or wherever to a rumbling someone stopped at a traffic light. You know the sound. I tried to tap into that vibe. Your welcome! Lol 

A Bunch of TRAP INSTRUMENTALS with Middle Eastern Flavor are needed by a leading EXCLUSIVE Music Licensing Company for a bunch of ongoing placements that will air on Middle Eastern-themed TV programs and Documentaries. They could also air anywhere in the world, not just the Middle East! This company is distributed internationally by Universal Music! 

Send them Mid-To-Up-Tempo Instrumentals in the general stylistic ballpark of the references below: 

"HABIBI" by H E M I S P H E R E 

"Hafla" by ISRAEL BEATS 

"Ghazal" by GIP$Y HUSSLE 

Please submit modern, rhythmically engaging Instrumentals that seamlessly marry Trap beats and production with overtly Middle Eastern-influenced melodies, scales, and instrumentation. Please be sure that your production and any virtual instruments or samples you use sound high-quality and modern – nothing low-quality or dated will work for this request. 

TAXI Tip: Your submissions can include some Middle Eastern-sounding non-lyrical Vocal elements, but keep them sparse and at a minimum! Oohs, Ahs, etc. – no words! 

Your submissions should be around 3 minutes in length, give or take, and no shorter than 2 minutes and 30 seconds. Non-faded, buttoned/stinger endings will work best. Do NOT copy the references in any way, shape, or form. Use them only as a general guide for tempo, tone, and overall vibe. Do NOT submit any material with unauthorized samples of any other artists’ music, sounds, or any other form of media. Broadcast Quality is needed.

Taxi Music Forward - Dramedy with Middle Eastern Flavors 

..Which means: “Hey cool track, I'm going to pass this on. It may be usable to the TV/Film/Publishing pro that will hear it next."

Had a little fun with a virtual duduk, udu, dejembe, and baya. (Say, what?!)

A BUNCH of DRAMEDY INSTRUMENTAL CUES with MIDDLE EASTERN Flavor are needed by an International Music Library with worldwide distribution through Universal! 

NOTE: Due to the unique nature of this request, we purposely didn't include references as we felt they could potentially be more misleading or limiting than helpful. 

Please submit well-crafted Dramedy Instrumental Cues that utilize the instrumentation, rhythms, and melodies of the Middle East! Your submissions should tastefully blend Dramedy elements like Pizzicato strings, Piano, Violin, Clarinet, etc. with Middle Eastern instrumentation like Duduk, Ney, Santoor, Saz, Bouzouki, etc. 

NOTE: Although they’re open to Instrumental Cues that fall pretty much anywhere on the Dramedy spectrum, they DO NOT want to hear anything that sounds childish or child-like. 

Be sure to structure your Cues around a central melodic idea while layering instrumentation in and out as they progress to keep them moving forward with a developmental arc. Your submissions should be at least 2 minutes in length. Non-Faded, Buttoned/Stinger endings will work best for this pitch. Broadcast Quality is needed. 

IMPORTANT NOTE FROM THE CLIENT: "If you plan to incorporate 'ready-made' loops into your productions, please make sure each stem has at least 2 layers! That way, every loop has an additional layer that distinguishes it from the original ‘source’ loop.”
