For Brands, Agencies, Musicians, Filmmakers and Media.

Record-Play helps brands get creative with music in a way that’s easy, ethical and effective. With over fifteen years of experience in music supervision, we spend every day sourcing, licensing and clearing music for every type of brand environment, from localised retail playlists to global ad campaigns. Our additional experience in event management, concept development and influencer marketing allows us to develop comprehensive long-term music strategies, so brands can use music credibly, engagingly and meaningfully.

A Global Agency

Flexible, independent and with a fearlessly international outlook, we have offices in London and Barcelona, and agents in Berlin, Milan, Hong Kong, Seoul, Shanghai, Sao Paulo and New York.  On a relentless quest to unearth new music from every territory, our team includes musicians, DJs, bloggers, promoters and business professionals. This means we’re uniquely positioned to match the needs of brands and musicians wherever they are in the world.

Music Supervision for Commercials and Films

Our music supervision service provides creative input and guidance on soundtracks for advertising, film, TV and games at all levels.
From sourcing the perfect track for your global ATL brand campaign to soundtracking a short film by new directors, we always ensure that the tracks used in your production are within budget, licensed properly and credited correctly. Oh, and we make sure they sound great too.

Music Consultancy For Brands

Record-play has been providing music consultancy services since 2003. We help major global brands assess how to best integrate music into their marketing, and support them in developing a strategy that utlisises the most effective demographic-targeting tool available: good music.
Check out some of the recent work  we’ve completed for clients such as Reebok Classics, Boohoo, Conductr and TOMS.

Our Story

We launched in 2003 as an independent music consultancy – this means we don’t represent any catalogue or rights holders. As our reputation has grown so have we, with fourteen full-time staff in two countries, as well as twenty scouts around the world.

Our Services

We advise brands on the strategic integration of music into communications, marketing and consumer touch points, supervising the creative and administrative elements of all music usage.

Our Mission

To highlight the most exciting and dynamic new sounds for our clients, while providing ethical guidance on how to work with music and musicians over the long term, building trust and developing mutually rewarding relationships.

An Ethical Guide to Sync…

In partnership with MusicTank we recently published Unlocking the Sync, a free guide to music synchronisation for both artists and brands. Some might say it’s pure folly to put our decades of experience into the public domain but our aim is to create an industry standard ethical approach to brand/artist collaboration.
