- Monday, Jun. 14, 2021
Megatrax is Currently Celebrating Its 30th Anniversary as One of the World's Leading Independent Music Libraries
Currently celebrating its 30th anniversary as one of the leading independent production music libraries in the world, Megatrax is celebrating Black Music Month by offering clients curated playlists of tunes written by many of the Black composers the company proudly includes within its roster.
According to Megatrax executives, Black composers have added depth, soul, expression and culture to the famed Megatrax music library. One only needs to review the music that makes up today’s Billboard charts to see Black originated sounds and traditions are highly prominent and range from Hip-Hop and rap, to rock & roll, rhythm and blues, sacred music, and everything in between.
Says James Clarke, Director of Marketing, Megatrax, “In his 2016 Proclamation, President Barrack Obama said that Black music and Black musicians have helped the United States of America ‘To dance, to express our faith through song, to march against injustice, and to defend our country’s enduring promise – of freedom and opportunity for all.’ We couldn’t agree with that sentiment more strongly.”
