As we know, one thing that’s really important when working in the industry is keeping on top of trends and making sure you’re one step ahead of the people who are buying the music.

Hip Hop ForeverWe’ve been looking at the Sync Portal catalogue and it’s time to find out where all you hip-hop creators are. It’s a growing trend, the consumer are loving it and our clients are loving it. In fact our weekly Spotify playlist was hip-hop themed only a couple of weeks ago for this exact reason!

Jack Skates, Head of SyncWe asked Sync & Licensing Manager, Jack Skates why they’re on the hunt for the good stuff.

“Finding really strong, sample-free hip-hop is a challenge. We’ve seen a growing need for it, which shows in our recent placements with YouTube Originals. If I hear a great track, I’m buzzed because it’s rare and we need it”

Are you hiding your hip-hop underground? Do you know someone who is smashing the scene that would benefit from being represented? Get the music into our hands and let us help you push it into the right ears for more opportunity.
