Warner/Chappell’s Non-Stop Music acquires V-The Production catalog

MUMBAI: Non-Stop Music, a division of Warner/Chappell Music, has acquired the entire catalog of V-The Production Library, a London-based production music library.

The deal gives the Emmy award-winning Non-Stop Music worldwide publishing rights to the label and expands the role as North American publisher for the catalog it has served since 2004. As part of the agreement, V-The Production Library’s team of producers and composers will continue to create library content that will be owned, exclusively marketed and distributed by Non-Stop Music.  

V-The Production Library provides music for use by broadcasters, advertising agencies, audio/visual producers and filmmakers, among others. The libraries, composers and producers are behind some of the leading TV and radio theme music in the UK, including The Weakest Link, Dancing On Ice, BBC Radio 1 and BBC Three News.

Non-Stop Music CEO Randy Thornton said, "V-The Production Library is known worldwide for its impressive music catalog and its influence on some of the most successful shows coming out of the UK today. With this catalog acquisition we are adding a rich new library of music to our already deep selection, including music for highly targeted niche genres as well more mainstream, contemporary tracks. We are confident that the addition of the V library will further strengthen our international presence by giving our affiliates a much broader and deeper range of music offering to exploit around the world."  

V – The Production Library was created, composed and produced by Music 4. Music 4 managing director Sandy Beech said, "I am delighted to see ‘V’ become part of the Non Stop Music family. Not only is V – The Production Library in the best possible hands to move forward and grow as part of a wider offering from Non Stop Music but the team here at Music 4 can now fully focus on the creation of brand new, standout tracks for the library over the coming months and years."

The V-The Production Library catalog will be fully integrated into CUEgle.com, Non-Stop Music’s online music search tool, which provides access to Non-Stop’s extensive production music library of more than 35,000 music cues.
