Music can make or break a moment. The right score can transform a visual into a work of art.
We’ve used our century of experience to create a catalogue with a focus on modern sounds and high-quality production. Specifically created for editors, producers and directors, BITE HARD bridges the gap between commercial music and the ease of licensing of production music. From sampling our legendary vinyl catalogue, to brand new original works, we’ve created something capable of bringing authenticity and commercial production values to promos, trailers, TV shows and movies.
New music from Seven AM, Rizr, and the Colleagues.
verb: the act of taking a portion, or sample of one sound recording and reusing it as an instrument or a sound recording in a different song.
De Wolfe’s collection has been sampled countless times throughout the decades, with artists as successful as Beyonce, Drake and Jay-Z all releasing music that relies on samples of our music. Now we take matters into our own hands!
We’ve teamed up with established acts, and up and coming beat makers to create original compositions that utilize samples taken from our extensive back-catalogue. The result: The Art of the Sample. A series of sample-based, contemporary albums, as easy and painless to license as any library song. Preview the first three releases of the series below, and visit our website to hear them in full.
“Art of the Sample: Vol. 1”
Sample-heavy, chilled, hip hop-tinged beats with a retro feel
“Blockhead: The Art of the Sample Volume 1” is now available to be purchased on vinyl through Young Heavy Souls, for just $20.
In Blockhead’s own words “These are not typical Blockhead songs. They’re more stripped down and focused for the purpose of being used in TV and film. For those who are unfamiliar with De Wolfe, they are a music library that has been doing music for film, radio and television for nearly 100 years. They make original music that gets plugged into all sorts of things and has been heard around the world. If you’re a producer, you have very likely sampled them and not even realized it. I was fortunate enough for them to allow me to make an album entirely out of their back catalogue”
The 14 track album is a limited pressing of 1000 copies, so don’t delay!
