Why APM Music?
(Dear White People, Mixtape, Selma)
“APM was tasked with helping me recreate the sound of a teenage punk-influenced band practicing in a garage in the late 90's Pacific Northwest. What the production team created was incredible, we ended up using it for another scene in the film that featured an ‘actual" band’. Talk about sticking the landing!"
Music Supervisor (Once Upon a Time In Hollywood, Wu-Tang: An American Saga)
"APM is one of my most important resources. Especially their authentic vintage catalog, which is eclectic and spectacularly weird. (We've used ‘Funky Fanfare’ by Keith Mansfield a few times in Quentin's films). I love sifting through their website and listening to the selections."
Music Supervisor (Marcel the Shell With Shoes On, Hillbilly Elegy, Mona Lisa and the Blood Moon)
"APM is my go-to, they never let me down. As someone who digs deep, APM has a seemingly never-ending supply of amazing musical nuggets. I keep throwing curveballs at them and I always get exactly what I need in return."
Aamina Gant, Music Supervisor (Queen Sugar, Colin in Black & White)
"It is always a pleasure to work with APM on my projects, including Queen Sugar and Colin in Black and White. They consistently submit great tracks and I am confident when doing a search that there will always be something that lands in our episodes."
