Royalty Free Music for Hibachi Food Truck Promo

Creating promotional trailers for restaurants and small businesses requires high quality content at affordable rates. Kissi Media produced this great promo for the NYC Hibachi food truck Hibachi Heaven using royalty free music from Productiontrax, allowing them to stay on budget without sacrificing quality.

Hibachi Joe, New York City from Kissi Media on Vimeo.

To capture the energy of grilling and chopping, Kissi Media used the stock music track Metal Drum and Bass 170BPM DM by Mykola Odnorog. Their selection of production music for the video helps to introduce Chef Joe and his food truck to the masses in NYC.

From the video description:

“Operated by Johansen Oliva, a Brazil native and New Yorker by way of Miami, Oliva (also known as “Chef Joe”)? serves hungry New Yorkers and foodies alike from the Financial District to Midtown (east/west) and Harlem, where loyal fans and diners flock to the corner of 99th and Madison Ave. Every Monday, employees at Mount Sinai Hospital are treated to the only hibachi dishes in the city available outside an established restaurant.”

We think Kissi Media’s choice of music and food closeups really makes our mouth water for some of Joe’s Yum Yum sauce.

Six Incredibly Useful Royalty Free Music Tracks for Creating Film Soundtracks

Every filmmaker knows that their soundtrack can make or break their entire film. For video production professionals in particular, the quality of the music being used can either lead to dissatisfied clients or to life long customers. Finding the right music for the right moment can be a tricky process. Luckily, royalty free music libraries like Productiontrax can make the search for the right track easy, providing music that covers a wide range of genres and emotional quality, even from the same piece of music.

Evoking feelings of hope and joy, the track gently evolves into a series of sparkling and beautiful sounds, interweaved with a full string ensemble.

2. Dub Step of Terror. This track by Robert Neary escalates and intensifies, gradually building and incorporating elements of traditional dub step with sounds of horror, adventure, and modern drama. Perfect for a wide range of uses from horror to superhero trailers to science fiction to commercials.

3. Pirates – Action Adventure. Whether you need something dramatic for a vacuum cleaner commercial, or you’re actually sailing the high seas, Igge Scoce’s royalty free action adventure music track will help to create the soundscape that sounds like it was created by a film score orchestra, all without the budgetary drain. Also great for video games, and cinematic sequences.

4. Adventurous Beautiful Majesty. From Christian Andersson of Craze Music comes this lush stock music track that is perfect for heroic epiphanies, fantasy titles, video games, documentaries, travel, nature, science, and gentle, lush underscoring.

5. Clocks. Serene, reflective, yet with constant motion, this piece by Adi Goldstein captures the essence of passing time, internal reflection, sadness, and can be used for montages, television dramas, opening titles, and much more.

6. Rays of Happiness. Quiet piano and strings works for anything. We don’t know why — it just does. This production music track by Filip Halon is perfect as a romantic love song, or as the backdrop to a peaceful scene. We think it works great for PSAs and other narrated commercial spots where a little human authenticity is called for.

Mystery Groove – Stock Music loop for Detective Shows

This week, we dive in to the genre of detective mysteries. Our royalty free music pick of the week is a short little stock music track by Matthew Anklan called Mystery Groove (track ID 387379). Without sounding dated, this production music track features four trumpets and rhythm section, complete with note bends, harmon mutes, and a delightfully funky beat and bass line.

The looped groove is perfect for comedy, mystery, and investigative shows, and immediately gave us images of the Pink Panther, Inspector Gadget, Mr. Monk, Sean Spencer, and other famously wacky television detectives. We combined this track with a stock footage clip ID 74853, which is a shot of a forrest road winding through some pretty dense fog. The video, also available for download at Productiontrax, adds to the mysterious yet almost comical flare of this music track. We think this piece will work equally well as a soundtrack for children’s projects or advertising.

Edgy Skater Punk Royalty Free Production Music

For any project in need of some edginess and youthful rebellious energy, Skater Punk by Robert Neary is the royalty free production music track that will deliver. From comedy television shows and prime-time cartoons to indie news and political satire, this track fits a variety of multimedia applications so well, you can hardly call it stock music.

Featuring heavy guitars, and hard-hitting drums, this track is triumphant, motivated, and frenetic. We synced up this music with one of our high definition stock footage clips to demonstrate how this might work for a political news show (think the Daily Show with Jon Stewart or Colbert Report with Stephen Colbert) title sequence. While the youthful exuberance gives the video an edgy, in-your-face, stick-it-to-the-man flair, there’s something remarkably authoritative about the sequence as well.

Quirky Royalty Free Stock Music – A Bit Nuts

A Bit Nuts is a fun, high-energy, quirky stock music track that is perfect for extreme sports, comedy, kids, and other projects requiring a bit of edge and light-hearted fun. It’s also our pick of the week.

For this week’s video, we took this royalty free music track and combined it with some great extreme sports stock footage (ID 38467) provided by Creatas of a skier experiencing a pretty gnarly wipeout. But what really makes this track work with the picture is the silly editing, reversing motion, and repetition. Combined with the upbeat nature of the music, the result brings out the humorous and silly nature of the soundtrack.

To further highlight the fast-paced fun, we threw in a family snowball fight with stock footage clip 360792 from Monkeybusiness Footage. By speeding it up and adding our favorite video filter effect, we achieved maximum silliness with minimal effort, made possible by the synths, electronica beat, and quirky melodies. A Bit Nuts is one of those tracks that has limitless potential, fitting a variety of use cases and multimedia projects.

How Royalty Free Music Can Boost Your Video Marketing ROI

If your creative agency like most businesses, you know that getting the most bang for your buck from your marketing dollars is crucial to success. If you use needledrop or custom production music in any of your marketing, making the switch to royalty free music in your marketing activities, whether on social media or at live events, can save you thousands of dollars per project, making switching to stock music an effective strategy for increasing your bottom line.
royalty free music for video marketing
If you market using video on social media sites, creating videos for YouTube or other video agregators is key to your success. However, professional production can cost tens of thousands of dollars, from actors to equipment, to full out production companies, editors, script writers, and more. Adding to this expense is custom music, which can run you anywhere from several hundred to several thousands for a couple minutes of music, especially if you’re looking for exclusivity. In fact, many production houses build in music licensing fees anywhere from $5000 to $20,000 depending on the project’s overall budget. All this for an online video?

You can trim the fat, thereby increasing your video’s overall effectiveness and increasing your ROI by switching to inexpensive royalty free music. Sure, it’s not exclusive, and sure, you’re not going to have Miley Cyrus’s latest twerk. However, finding something similar sounding by a professional musician in a royalty free music library will save you tens of thousands in licensing fees. If you can avoid needledrop libraries, where they charge you a fee per use, you can even make your project even more cost-effective. At productiontrax.com, you can get a professionally produced pop soundtrack for your next YouTube video for less than $50, with no needledrop fees, and no royalties to pay.

By cutting out unnecessary licensing costs, you can remove bloat from your project’s overall cost. If you could lower your marketing spend by $5000, and still get comparable results, it seems like a no-brainuh. Let’s face it, it’s the internet. No one is going to care (or even remember) that you got the exclusive rights to Twerkatwerk, 2013’s top pop smash, for your viral video. Royalty free music is a perfect substitute: it’s plenty cheaper, and sounds just as good.
