Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) January 24, 2007
Waxploitation announced today that it has extended its relationship with BUG Music for the catalog Administration of legendary songwriter Matt Dike, founder of Delicious Vinyl and acclaimed producer of the Beastie Boys classic Paul's Boutique album.
The catalog, which runs hundreds of songs deep, includes hits tracks like Young MC's "Bust a Move", Tone Loc's "Wild Thing" and "Funky Cold Medina" as well as songs recorded by such acclaimed artists as Pharcyde and Brand New Heavies to name a few.
"After almost 20 years, these songs are as strong now as they ever were." Says Waxploitation founder Jeff Antebi. "The key has been to be overcautious with how and when these songs get licensed. BUG has proven to us that they are in it for the long haul, so it made sense to extend the relationship with them for another decade."
The catalog has been licensed for an array of films including You Me and Dupree, Cable Guy, White Chicks and Charlie's Angels: Full Throttle. It has also appeared in television shows including King of the Hill, Futurama, My Name is Earl, Scrubs, ER, Conan 'O Brien, The Wire, and SNL to name a few. Additionally, many significant brands have used the music in commercials, including Nike, Priceline and Old Navy as well as appearing in several classic 'What Happens in Vegas, Stays in Vegas'.
The Waxploitation label was formed in 1997 as a home for innovative artists in music. The Company expanded into Artist Management and Music Publishing in 2000. The company's Jeff Antebi has been the longtime artist manager for 6-time Grammy nominated artist and producer Danger Mouse. In recent years, this relationship has expanded to include managing the Danger Mouse and Cee-Lo Green multi-platinum, 5-time Grammy nominated Gnarls Barkley persona as well as the MF DOOM and Danger Mouse project known as Dangerdoom, released in collaboration with [Adult Swim]. Waxploitation handles publishing catalogs with classics including 'Bust a Move', 'Wild Thing' and 'Funky Cold Medina', as well as the Beastie Boys seminal album Paul's Boutique.
