Merry Christmas!

  • Faltay Csaba

Mennyből az angyal lejött hozzátok,
pásztorok, pásztorok!
Hogy Betlehembe sietve menvén
lássátok, lássátok.

Istennek fia , aki született
jászolban, jászolban,
Õ leszen néktek üdvözítõtök
valóban, valóban.

Rough translation:

From heaven, the angel has come down to you,
shepherds, shepherds!
To go in haste to Bethlehem
Behold, behold.

The Son of God who was born
In a manger, in a manger,
He is your Savior
Truly, truly.

UBM Media – professionalism and diversity

  • Faltay Csaba
We have signed a contract with one of Germany's most exciting independent publishers to represent each other's catalogues.

A really great collaboration has started between UBM Records and Twelvetones, where we represent the UBM Media stock music catalogue in Hungary and they distribute Twelvetones’ catalogues in Germany, Austria and Switzerland. UBM, one of Germany’s most exciting independent labels, was founded in 2003 by composer Uwe Buschkötter and includes pop and contemporary catalogues in addition to production music. The exceptional production quality is matched by an amazing variety, so it’s safe to say that you really can find everything you need for a good TV show or online material.

Check out the catalogue of more than 340 albums!

 

UBM 2358 Football

There’s no other way to start this summary for a German label than with an album that belongs to a real football series. Packed with great fan rock anthems, the album evokes the unforgettable stadium atmosphere when fans sing the starting line-up of their favourite team.

UBM 2388 Scenic Wideness

This album is full of stunning compositions that convey a sense of calm, but also deal with dramatic themes such as climate change and other natural phenomena. What they all have in common, however, is that they capture a sense of a vast, infinite space.

UBM 2453 Blockbuster

Can we have enough trailer-type “epic” music? Well, obviously not. But fortunately there are a fair number of them in the UBM catalogue. Here’s another great example that has everything you need for the genre, gigantic drums, orchestra, big choir and electronics. The only thing missing is the punchy your imagery.

UBM 2465 Straight to VHS – 80s Themes & Atmospheres

A real treat for fans of the 80s. Unadulterated retro video music, from the heyday of VHS for those who love it.

UBM 2429 E-Mobility

These 17 perfect background tracks provide a musical backdrop for themes such as mobility, urban planning and social change. Overwhelmingly optimistic and neutral in tone, the electronic instrumentation blends perfectly with the most varied imagery, making it a firm favourite for TV shows and online videos.

UBM 2287 Electronic Dance Music – Vibrant EDM

Recently, EDM has moved from the world of clubs to the computers of the editing room, and more and more often it is being used as music in online programing or TV shows. Progressive house, Dutch house, EDM or future house, all of these genres can be found on this album to complement any party-themed broadcast, reality shows, fashion shows or sports activity.

Songbook 9 – Fresh, dynamic pop music

  • Dudas Petra
It's still difficult to define what it means to have music that is both modern and youthful, but we think the new Twelvetones album is both. This time Gábor Bruzsa, Csaba Faltay, Zoltán Istvánffy, Ross McLean, Imre Poniklo and Mike Zwecker have shown their coolest faces.

Can you think of some cool radio-friendly music?

For commercials, inspiring magazine features, crazy festival scenes?

It’s still hard to define what it means for music to be both modern and youthful, but we think the new Twelvetones album does both. This time Gábor Bruzsa, Csaba Faltay, Zoltán Istvánffy, Ross McLean, Imre Poniklo and Mike Zwecker have shown their wildest faces.

Be warned, even a single listen to the album is guaranteed to get you hooked!

I’m sure you’ve all been there, unexpectedly starting a song in public. If you’ve ever been in a children’s community, you can’t have failed to notice that little ones can hum and sing along to the latest commercials all day long. And it’s important for anyone making a commercial that the film grabs the attention. But it’s not only important for commercials; if you want the audience to remember the music from the party scene at the end of your film, you need to find music that they can easily recall days later.

The music on the new Twelvetones album is designed to get into the ears of the listener and stay there.

Hallgassunk bele az albumba!

It was love –An upbeat glam pop rock song with passionate and powerful female vocals, massive synthesizers and a driving beat.

Friend zone – An upbeat pop punk song about high school love, with punchy drums, guitars and catchy female vocals.

Right here – Upbeat, dynamic modern rock music with powerful and inspiring male vocals and guitar riffs.

Maluya – Devotional and passionate French waltz song with romantic female vocals and acoustic instruments.

Love to see you fly – Super positive pop song with groovy guitars, clappable rhythm, motivational male vocals.

There’s no shortage of upbeat and pleasant background music, whether it’s for a film soundtrack, a show tune, a documentary or a travel magazine.

Modern Farming – Carefree in nature

  • Dudas Petra
Last week we were proud to present you the latest Twelvetones album with the joyful organic music of our composer Gábor Bruzsa, and we didn't expect that so many people would praise it - well, actually we did.

Anyone who has sat on a porch at sunrise, breathing in the scent of hay bales, running barefoot in the dewy grass, or sipping wine on a hilltop as the sun sets, will feel the mood of the album. Gábor brings the play of sunlight through the gaps in the leaf clusters, the smell of spring, the aroma of fresh bread creeping out of the kitchen, the unclouded freedom when it is so good to just be, that you don’t feel the pebbles, the bark or the splinters in your fingers.

Organic, optimistic tracks with acoustic guitars, grooves and a modern sound. Perfect for nature, gardening themes, lifestyle magazines.

Have a listen to the album!

Kids and Cows – Super catchy kid-friendly music with acoustic instruments for light-hearted family and nature programing.

Morning Field – A bouncy, energetic atmosphere with acoustic guitars, arpeggios and clapping for fun and nature-themed entertainment.

Rust – A pleasantly pulsating organic track with an atmospheric, ethereal sound, melodic acoustic guitar and cello.

Sunrise on the Meadow – Dynamic and organic background music for ecological, friendship and family visuals.

 

You can find the album here: Modern Farming
