Looking for a Producer to work with Multi-Platinum German Artist "AKAY"

We've found a songwriter who German Artist, AKAY wants to work with during his trip to London between 17th - 19th May. We're looking for a producer to come into the writing session with them. MUST: Be available between 17th - 19th May in London It would be great if you had your own studio space but if not we're able to sort something out for the session. Attached is the track by the writer he's interested in to give you a vibe of the style. He's really into the Dance / Reggae type stuff. About AKAY: Akay is a German pop, r‘n‘b, hip hop and dance singer, MC, text author /composer, event organizer and owner /managing director of various media companies. In 2003, Akay won the third season of the Pro7 casting show "Popstars - Das Duell“ with the group Overground. Overground became one of the most successful German boy bands. The band had several top 10 hits, brought two albums to the market and won three times Platinum as well as Gold awards. The band split in 2008. Akay then started his solo career and released his debut single "That‘s the Way” in May 2008. This song was the title song for the German movie, "Urmel-Voll in Fahrt“. The title follows the second single "Sexual Healing“, a collaboration with the American rapper Rah Digga. In 2016, Akay and DJ Mr. Da-Nos recorded the Zurich Street Parade anthem "Unique“, which became the #1 of the iTunes Charts. At the beginning 2017 followed a Featuring with the German Hip Hop artist MC Bilal, whose album entered the Top 10 album charts. In addition to his solo career, Akay has also established the social media agency "Suga Agency“. Since then he has been very successful in communicating various influencers for advertising campaigns for brands such as McDonalds, Universal, EA Sports, Snipes, and PlayStation and has done some influencer campaigns with stars like Dwayne "The Rock“ Johnson, Kevin Hart, and Ice Cube.

Looking for Uptempo Modern Pop with Real Instrumentals for Top 40 UK Female Artist

Looking for Uptempo Modern Pop with Real Instrumentals for Top 40 UK Female Artist

Please read the whole brief and pitch accordingly, thanks. A&R looking for tracks for one of his chart topping artists next albums. This album has writers of the likes of Chris Martin and Ed Sheeran featuring on it so Demos need to be spot on and of the highest quality as space on the album is tight. The track MUST be uptempo with real instrumentals preferred. The artist has had several charting songs with a powerful range. Predominantly she has focussed on fun, powerful and uptempo pop and this brief is no different. She is also viewed as a strong woman and this needs to be portrayed in the tracks and lyrics. I've attached reference tracks and descriptions below as to the relevance of each reference. Amy Winehouse - Rehab: Gives you an idea of the real instrumentals we're looking for. Bruno Mars - Uptown Funk: The funk and uptempo in this along with the real instrumentals is another great example of the vibe we're looking for. Little Mix - Touch: This one doesn't have the instrumentals but the uptempo vibe and topline style in this is spot on for what we're looking for. I appreciate these 3 reference tracks are very different but hopefully it'll give you enough guidance but also freedom to get creative. __________________________________________________________________________________ Although the main brief doesn't state duets, if your demo suits the style we're looking for we're open to receiving male / female duets to present to the client as she's no stranger to collabs. It's a great brief and it would be wicked to see a Music Gateway member place on this album, best of luck with the project and any questions please message on the pitch messaging system. Thanks, Music Gateway
