“Initially they liked the energy the track had and how it didn't sound like anything else” says Current Music’s CCO Christian Salyer.

The college basketball season started earlier this month and Fox Sports is set to bring some of the best games from the Big East. In the studio, Rob Stone returns as Fox Sports’ lead college basketball host and will be joined by other recognizable faces from past years.

Having enjoyed a good relationship with Current Music from their previous work together, including the title opening song for their College Football Studio Show, Fox Sports producer Rick Thomas brought them on once again to do the same for The College Basketball Studio Show aka "College Hoops". To open the show, they were looking for a powerful hip hop track song a pop feel to it.

Current Music relayed the request from Fox Sports to their custom music team. After considering the demo submissions, the producers chose a track by the alternative rock band Blondstone, which is on Current Music's roster of composers.

“I think they picked our song because of the epic chord progression feel” says Blondstone’s Laurent Lepagneau.

“Initially they liked the energy the track had and how it didn't sound like anything else” says Current Music’s CCO Christian Salyer. "Once they decided on the track and it was time to add vocals, we thought it would be cool to add rock vocals to it; to make it even more unique, and they really liked that idea.”

Adding vocals created an exciting and powerful pop-rock-hip hop song called "Make Em Believe", which debuts on College Hoops December 1st, 2018.

Current Music’s composers have also penned the theme song or opening title music for FS1’s Lock It In, Fox Sports College Football Pregame Show, and The NHL on NBC, among others. Read about them all in "THE LATEST"
