We’re proud to announce the addition of five new catalogs from U.K.-based Fantasy Production Music, rolling out from 2018 through 2019. Owners and composers, Ossi Bashiri and Steve Cole, will add more than 100 new albums from the edgy youth-oriented catalog, FPM, by the end of this year, followed by catalogs featuring classical, documentary, easy-listening, and trailer music.
“FPM brings a young, edgy sensibility to our line-up and we are very excited to bring them on board. They are a perfect complement to our existing catalogs. In addition, they have a world-class classical collection which is something that we have been seeking for a long time,” says Ron Mendelsohn.
Fantasy Production Music formed in 2010 under the leadership of Creative Director Ossi Bashiri, who was founder, partner, creative director and major composer/contributor for Extreme Music. By 2010, he created the FPM catalog, launched from Megatrax In May, which is a library that breaks rules and creative boundaries and shatters old music library ideas.
Steve Cole, CEO of Fantasy Production Music, former President of BMG Production Music and Universal Production Music, has over 30 years of experience in production music. Cole started Cavendish Music, which has become the Fantasy Production’s Documentary series. The documentary series will roll out in 2019.
The FPM catalog’s varied and rich sound palette will appeal to a younger audience, but works for anyone making broadcast programs that need an injection of “youth.” In this collection, editors will find contemporary electronica/dance, edgy pop/rock and aggressive urban sounds.
Bashiri utilises the best recording studios available. His creative expertise is second-to-none given his years of experience as an engineer/producer at both Abbey Road and Powerplant. Says Cole, “We are trying to kindle the analogue flame in an increasingly digital environment. FPM Music is constantly trying to keep things sounding punchy, yet warm and classic.”
Megatrax launched the FPM catalog with 37 volumes last month, and will continue to launch the phase into the fall with 60 more volumes. Ossi Bashiri says: “Our attention to detail is almost OCD! We love what we create and we have fun creating it. We know this shines through in the finished mixes.”
