Los Angeles Post Music Presents… Rap/Urban
Los Angeles Post Music presents a large selection of rap/urban tracks that can be used as production music and stock music in a variety of media projects, including television programs, film projects, advertising, etc.. The production music found in our rap/urban catalog is reflective of the popular hip hop music played in clubs and on the radio throughout the world today. As with all of our music, the rap/urban production music in our production music library is of the highest quality and reflective of the sound offered by the major commercial record labels today. We do not believe any music should be simply dismissed as stock music or royalty free music.
Rap music emerged in the late 1970s as an outgrowth of disco and funk music. It has its roots in New York City , with early pioneers such as Grandmaster Flash, The Furious Five and The Sugarhill Gang. Many of the tracks that make up LAPM's collection of rap/urban production music were composed by Reggie Griffin, who worked on a number of early Sugarhill recordings.
Rap-Urban music has since become a major part of the music industry, often filling the top spot on the popular charts. The rap/urban production music offered by Los Angeles Post Music makes great production music or for any type of media project that calls for this type of music. These tracks of production music wear their roots on their sleeve, with elements of soul, disco and funk music. The instrumentation used on our rap/urban production music tracks ranges from synthesizers, guitars, drum machines, funky bass and pounding beats. perfect for fulfilling many production music and background music needs.

More About Los Angeles Post Music
Los Angeles Post Music Inc. was established in 1994 by Tom Borton. Tom, as well as being a noted jazz recording artist on Atlantic Records, had been composing music for TV and film since the early 80's, with an Emmy nomination in 1987. After working on network shows and TV series in scoring, post-production and sweetening positions, he found a lack of quality production music (or stock music). This led to the launch of Los Angeles Post Music Inc., a library dedicated to soulful performances and passionate productions with impeccable audio quality. As a recording artist, in the studio and on the road, Tom met and worked with many talented musicians and composers both in Los Angeles and across the country. Through this network of artists, he was able to establish LA Post's stable of composers. Each of these musicians / composers live and breathe their unique style of music and bring outstanding performances to the production music that they produce for LAPM. Historically, Tom has always had a knack for finding talented musicians. Long before the entertainment world came to know such artists as Kenny Edmonds (also know as Babyface), producer and composer Daryl Simmons (Aretha Franklin, Toni Braxton), and drummer Kenny Aronoff (The Smashing Pumpkins, Bob Dylan, and rock drummer of the year in Rollingstone ) to name only a few, Tom had been performing, composing, and recording with these icons of popular music. In addition to running daily operations of Los Angeles Post Music Inc., Tom continues to compose, record, and produce for the library and outside projects.
The LA Post Music philosophy of “complete creative freedom” continues to provide a creative outlet previously unavailable to LAPM composers. This approach results in compositions and performances being made available that were typically left unrecorded (such as a kazoo choir) due to the “format” parameters and boundaries traditionally placed on most forms of commercial music today or production music (stock music) for that matter. It is the fantastic compositions and performances that set LAPM apart from other production music libraries and (so-called) royalty free music companies.
Since 1994, Los Angeles Post Music has been building its catalog of production music and now numbers over 100 CDs consisting of thousands of individual cues. The styles of production music found in LA Post Music's production music library range from Rock to Urban to Underscore Dramatic to World. LA Post Music first launched its first web site in 1995, wwwlapostmusic.com, one of the first production music libraries to do so. With continuous development, the site provides a comprehensive resource for all of our clients.
In a continuing effort to expand its worldwide presence, LA Post Music recently entered into a representation agreement with JW Media in the U.K. , in addition to the sub-publishers we already have across the globe.
Through word-of-mouth alone, LA Post Music has been able to build its extremely impressive roster of both clients and composers. Many music supervisors have called LAPM's production music library, the best in the business. Music supervisors working on a variety of projects consistently return to LA Post Music's library. Some of those who have relied on LAPM include the music supervisor for NBC's Las Vegas ; the music supervisor for HBO's The Sopranons and Sex & The City; and the music supervisor for the recent HBO hit, Flight Of The Conchords. Los Angeles Post Music's production music library has become widely known and trusted as a source of first-rate production music.
