OD Hunte Does Eric Garner Tribute Song and Video

After learning about the horrifying events of July 17th when when unarmed Eric Garner was choked during apprehension by 6 police officers resulting in his death, OD was compelled to write and perform a tribute song and produce a video to raise awareness about what is going on in America. Although this event is in fact only the tip of the iceberg in terms of what is happening in America (local police have reported to the FBI, that in the last 12 months there has been on average 2 JUSTIFIABLE black killings by police per week), the hope is that greater training will be given to officers so that they may not only stay safe but also have zero death apprehensions in the future of all ethnicities.

Monica Alcorano Takes Us Out to Tenerife for A Touch of Gold

London Friday, 16 May 2014, Singer/ Songwriter, Model and recent ITV Take Me Out contestant Monica Alcorano unveils her new pop promo video for her song “Touch Is Gold”, shot on location in Tenerife, Spain. The video was directed, shot and edited by the song’s music producer and co-writer, OD Hunte, who music-wise has worked with the likes of Emile Sande and companies such as EA Sports



Born in Tottenham, London to Greek and Italian parents, Monica started singing in her school choir from the age of 7. Her talent was spotted at an early age and she became the lead singer of the young choir group. In her early teens, Monica won many local talented contests in her town and at secondary school. Monica enrolled at the Amersham and Wycombe performing arts college and at 17, during the beginning of her second year, she was scouted by an Italian management and label company to go out to Rome and work with Italy's most talented producers.

More recently however, Monica met and impressed EMI publishing signed Producer/writer OD Hunte (Emeli Sande, Leona Lewis, Wretch 32, EA Sports) and was signed to a development deal as OD saw the potential in Monica. Although it would have been easy to try to imitate her professional idols JLo, Aaliyah, Janet Jackson, Christina Aguilera and Britney Spears, Monica has been instead striving to explore her own creative possibilities and draw fans into her own world of accessible pop.

Monica has been no stranger to attention as a part time professional model but was surprised to be randomly scouted for ITV's 'Take Me Out' series 6 which she appeared in but found no love on screen as she wasn’t picked for a date.

“I’m very pleased to be working with Monica as she’s a driven and talented artist, who apart from having commercial appeal, is a nice person willing to work hard to achieve her dreams” says OD Hunte. “Therefore, I’m helping her to facilitate that with my music and video productions and organizing her marketing strategy in order to build her career. She’s ambitious and wants her reality TV show as well as her own perfume line so I’m looking into all of those branding and entertainment opportunities”, he concludes.

“Touch Is Gold” video can be viewed on Youtube at
http://youtu.be/pcNdi-i40mo and is set for release digitally in the summer of 2014.

#Limitless Soft Radio Launch Sees Downloads Start Internationally

The OD Hunte #Limitless single has had a soft radio release making the track available to radio programmers internationally and downloads have begun in countries including France, Netherlands, Denmark and Argentina. It’s early in the campaign so stay tuned for more updates.

The only thing that truly matters in the current music landscape is a fresh outlook, innate talent and a special kind of creativity that can transcend music genres and other pointless barriers.  OD Hunte is in the right place when it comes to these qualities, as brilliantly showcased by his new production effort #Limitless. This track vividly portrays OD’s fondness for straightforward, direct and infectious melodies, combined with a rich and detailed sound production value. On a sonic level, #Limitless brings back the best of old school analog electronics  together with a modern perspective on electronic music production, characterized by multi-layered synth work, including tight bass lines and roomy textures. The song is enriched a step further by the use of glitchy vocal loops that create the melody. Although this single was created by OD with the main purpose of promoting his skills as a music producer and arranger of original backing tracks and instrumentals, #Limitless is far more than a simple showcase of technicality and expertise. This is a true art project, not only because of the emotional strength of the tune itself, but also for the visual appeal of the stunning video that comes with the song, truly enhancing the ethereal storytelling feel of the tune and bringing more depth to the whole concept.

Why Unsigned Artists Need to Work With A Great Producer

od-hunte-why-unsigned-artists-need-a-great
The music industry is in unchartered waters. One thing holds true however; that labels are taking less risks on artists and artists now have more power than ever to take control of their careers. The advent of the internet, YouTube and cover videos, MP3s, reality TV shows, games and media consumption in general have changed the business model dramatically. Although every situation, label or artist is different, one truthful generalisation is that labels want to jump on a moving train; they want some action or artist-created-buzz before they commit to signing an artist.

More TV Synchs Coming

OD has written for most of the major production music companies in the UK including Extreme (Sony ATV), KPMH (EMI) and Universal and although busy on multiple projects is still finding time to write more tracks for Universal and new synch company Synctracks.  OD is currently in talks to write for a more library companies, full details to be released shortly.

The Financial Facts of Beginner Music Production (Guest Blog)

One of the things that can be frustrating to a lot of individuals looking to get into producing music is that a lot of the required software and hardware is expensive. It can be frustrating to want to make House, for example, only to find out that even the lower-level entry software is near or into the three digits.

The problem this generates for a lot of companies making the software is high piracy rates. FL Studio is a frequently pirated audio production program, and that's probably a pretty big issue for Image Line to deal with when they're looking to profit from their work, especially given that the demo allows you to export songs created in a single session to mp3. C'mon, pirates!

But the sad fact of the matter is that many of them are not pirating the software with the intention of simply stealing from a company - some of them genuinely want careers, want their music to find its way into clubs, onto television, onto someone's
poker.de playlist. But that software barrier, when removed, means some go on to make it, and then buy the software they stole because they can finally make it past the catch 22 of "no money, no software, but no software, no money."

But making money with music is now both easier and harder than ever. The internet means being able to sell music on Beatport, on Bandcamp, and on iTunes, and more platforms in addition to this. It's an exciting time to be a musician, as there's little need for labels if you don't want them, but it means a lot of self-promotion to survive amongst the millions of artists who are doing the same thing as you. So bear all of this in mind, and remember - musicians have it tough, but work hard, pay your dues (or pay in advance, this is also a good thing and the right thing to do) and self-promote like crazy. Good luck.
