MONDO.NYC is back with a week of music, tech, and talks. Our Executive Creative Producer Dylan Bostick will be in from LA, and representing at the conference’s Guild Of Music Supervisors Day, in good company, with leading gaming and entertainment companies, Ubisoft, Electronic Arts (EA), Go to Eleven Entertainment, and DMG The panel, “Music Licensing for Video Games: Lucrative, Effective, and Impactful’, kicks off the day at 10am. Expect to hear about Heavy Duty music supervision for Saints Row V, which earned Dylan and Josh Kessler the Guild of Music Supervisors award for Best Music Supervision in a Video Game (Synch) earlier this year.
DC mambo sauce pairs perfectly with DC Go-Go Music. We appreciated the opportunity to work with Stony and Yates, by sourcing a few tracks from 70’s DC Go-Go legends Experience Unlimited, adding an extra layer of authenticity to this special documentary which honors the history of the beloved condiment.
O+ Festival supports the health of underinsured artists and musicians in the Hudson Valley and beyond through their annual festival, where they exchange art-making and performances for health and wellness services: the art of medicine for the medicine of art. Our co-founder Kate Urcioli will be joining the festival’s roundtable discussion on Sync with esteemed colleagues Lauriana Zuluaga and Jessica Gramuglia. Check out the organization’s website and all the great music, art and wellness coming up this weekend.
HD UK is dropping in to create the soundtrack for Samsung’s collaboration with Skateboard GB. We love this vibrant work from Iris Worldwide featuring a team of pro skaters championing the new Galaxy Z Flip5. Original music by Heavy Duty London.
Heavy Duty continues to raid the Mattel toy box! The new brand campaign for Hot Wheels cinematically depicts how there are lessons to be learned from failure, and play can be a perfect safe space for this introduction. We can’t wait to see what’s to come from the Hot Wheels brand as they gear up to bring the beloved toys to a new generation of racers and dare-devils! Thank you to SMUGGLER and BBH USA for bringing us along for the ride. Original score by Heavy Duty’s Sean Fitzgerald.
JEEP x JETER, iconic! New Work, and a great example of leaning into the lyrics of an existing song to uplift the story. It was of course very fun to cover Roy Orbison’s “I Drove All Night”.
She’s baaack! Congrats (once again!) to Heavy Duty Projects Creative Director Dan Nigro on another massive achievement with Olivia Rodrigo and her album ‘Guts’. Dan co-wrote and produced the much-anticipated follow-up to Olivia’s debut album ‘Sour’ (…which he also co-wrote and produced!).
