ABOUT US

At Leaky Sync, we’re a boutique music licensing collective, while providing colab, co-write and remix opportunities for rightsholders.  Leaky Sync is mainly comprised of indie music across many genres for one-stop representation, Leaky Sync also has exclusive rights with a ‘Legacy Catalog’ representing works from Lee ‘Scratch” Perry to Tito Puente.

In early 2017, with the help from our sync rep, Steve Bootland, Leaky Sync debuted the Portugal Invasion program, where we began to support new music coming from the country. Soon after, Portugal Invasion turned into a radio campaign in May of 2017.  The 30-day music experience was hosted on the most listened to Internet radio station in the world, idobi Network via their idobi Anthm station, providing indie music fans and industry relations alike with a passport to the best-established and emerging-artists coming out of Portugal today.

By July of 2017, we introduced label services to cater digital distribution and marketing support to rightsholders, by first launching imprint label, DREAMTIME PALACE. Today, our music division, Circulate Music manages and operates all label services.

MUSIC SUBMISSION POLICY

MUSIC/SONG CLEARANCE

For close to a decade, our team has cleared many types of music and song use licenses, from sample clearances to sync licenses. Once we know what song or type of music a licensee is looking to clear, our first goal is to obtain a formal music clearance quote from the publisher, and in some cases the owner of the master recording (usually the record label). There are a handful of factors in obtaining specific clearance rights, which may include some, if not all of the following factors:

>type of media required
> term
> territory
> number of units
> unit price
> step deals
> bumps
> options or rollovers
> corporate policy of the licensor
> length of usage
> type of usage
> profit or non-profit status
> project budget
> type of project and subject matter
> other compositions/recordings within the project
> multiple publishers
> samples
> copyright renewal and/or ownership issues
> popularity and licensing history of the song or recording
> current artist management restrictions and guidelines

If there’s a song or type of music you’re interested in clearing, please contact us via email, contact form or at the 24/7 Song Request Line and someone will be in touch with you.

MUSIC/SONG LICENSING

Leaky Sync focuses on providing quality music (not quantity) in order to facilitate a smooth licensing experience for licensees. We’re very selective on who and what we bring into the collective. All artists, musicians, songwriters, composers, producers and remixers we have agreements with own or control 100% of their master recording and music publishing rights.

While in our beta stage, our ‘Search’ button conducts basic search results for licensees looking for a specific mood, gender, genre, sub-genre, similar artist, key instrument, or lyrical targeted words/phrases in a particular song which populate blog posts listed from most recent. Each blog post will contain a brief description of the track, curated set or entire album, featuring a music player our music video. We promise this feature will be more robust once we launch our user interface.

If there’s a song you’re interested in licensing, please contact us via email, contact form or at the 24/7 Song Request Line and we’ll email it out to you right away.
