LBC Election Theme

LBCIt’s a bit of a shame that the political process in the UK is only a month long… This Election Theme just made for LBC would have run for two years in the United States!!

The Election Theme was based off of the Main Theme from the LBC 3 package that we created whilst Creative Director Chris Lowrie and Programme Director Jonathan Richards were in town to experience the orchestral recording and mixing of the new package.

Please check out The New LBC 3 Package post to see and hear more about this monumental package.

2012 Heart Radio Jingles

Heart Radio LogoIt is always a proud moment at IQ Beats when we are able to unveil our latest set of music imaging for the UK’s biggest commercial radio network.

Our new Heart radio jingles for London and the sister stations all around the country are now live on-air and sounding neater, brighter and tighter than ever before.

The new package features the three note musical logo that the network is famous for signaling ‘London’s Heart’ in the capital city and ‘This is Heart’ around the UK.  All cuts are sung both ways with a new tighter vocal sound that really sets this package apart from anything else in the market.

Over the years our Heart packages have featured a double sing ‘This is Heart – London’s Heart’.  For our new 2012 package the double sing is replaced by a single in order to speed up the pace and move the flow of the station to a new level.

As always with our Heart packages, a huge amount of time and detail have gone into the tracks and the vocals.  Working with the team at Global Radio day in and day out, we have been able to tailor a set of cuts that continue to define the sound of the station in the strongest way possible.

We are really proud of the fact that our Heart package is more than a selection of synth based cuts – The team at Global always encourage and give us the time and space to develop each track in the fullest way possible resulting in complex, real brass & horn arrangements as well as an array of other authentic instrumentation.

We would like to thank everyone at Global Radio (you know who you are) who have been a vital part of making this package so fantastic!  We are thrilled with the results and happy to continue with a legacy which offers arguably the most defined and consistent station image in UK commercial radio.

Hear the entire package cut by cut at IQ Beats – Heart Jingle Package 2012 or hear some of our previous work for Heart:  Heart Network 2, Heart Network 1, London’s Heart 106.2 – Contact us to see which packages are still available in your market.

The New LBC 3 Package

LBCIQ Beats is proud to announce our latest custom music-imaging package for LBC, our third in a longstanding relationship with Executive Producer Chris Lowrie and the first under the ownership of Global Radio. LBC is London’s premier News/Talk station on 97.3 FM and across the UK on DAB digital radio.

Composers Patrick Napper and Steven Scalfati worked closely with Programme Director Jonathan Richards and Mr. Lowrie to produce a package bringing together a contemporary, authoritative and confident sound to reflect LBC as a “news talk” station and live orchestrations, using strings and horns, to reflect the emotion of real and honest conservations. It is a winning combination not previously found in any other package and is designed to confirm London’s premier talk radio station as bold, modern, confident and proud.

The package is a true achievement and is the culmination of 4 months of focused composition, communication, coordination, scheduling, production, recording, editing and mixing made possible by the talent of Steven and Patrick, the clear vision laid out by Jonathan and Chris at LBC, and the 80 other persons instrumentally involved in the package.

Chris Lowrie had this to say:

We are delighted with this exciting new sound for LBC 97.3, making us stand out from the rest of the market. It’s fresh and distinctive and reflects LBC as the best talk station in London.

Chris Lowrie, Executive Producer, LBC 97.3 FM

92.5 The Beat Montreal Launches With Heart Packages

92.5 The Beat launches with the IQ Beats Heart Network radio jingle packagesMontreal’s 92.5 The Beat just launched with cuts from all three of the venerable Heart radio imaging packages we’ve created over the years (Heart Jingle Package 3, Heart Jingle Package 2, Heart Jingle Package 1) and we couldn’t be more thrilled.

We’ve produced a number of re-sings of the various Heart packages over the years and this one is proving to be one of our favorites. The folks calling the shots at the Beat wanted the singers to deviate from the 3 note melody logo – Letting things unfold in a more adlib fashion.

The results highlight a new dimension to where this package can be taken vocally. We think it’s a perfect fit for 925 The Beat and wish our friends up north every success with their new station.

Here’s a few words straight from the horse’s mouth…

As we were looking to re-image our stale AC radio station into something fresh and vibrant,  one of the most challenging aspects of the procedure was finding a jingle company to work with. One that would fit all our needs. When we heard what IQ Beats were doing, we knew they would be perfect for what we were looking to achieve.

We wanted to step away from the established and expected style of jingle production and these guys got it big time. When we said we didn’t want a traditional stacked vocal sound, I could feel them smiling on the other end of the line and we took off from there.

They were willing to try anything that would enable the vocalists to freely express themselves. The resulting package is one that seamlessly flows throughout the day with the jingles feeling like they are an integrated part of the musical experience we are trying to offer our listeners and not a obligation to identify ourselves.

Great work, great talent, great results. Our re-branding is already creating a fresh new buzz on the street in Montreal and a lot of that’s due to IQ Beats!

-Mark Stafford, Creative Director

Yowzah.  Have kinder words ever been spoken?  Wethinks not.  We had a great time working with Mark and 925 The Beat as it was a truly liberating, fun and exciting experience.

Here’s a montage of all the cuts in the package
