It’s good to know that if the blizzard expected tomorrow ends up shutting down our Milwaukee recording studio, Mike and Tony have worked out a plan to stay warm.

I’ve managed to hire great people, and this brings me so much joy.

Mike and Tony keep me young.

Hype shouldn’t be a buzzword. When lovingly crafted, it’s a lifestyle, it’s in the DNA… not some slogan to be exploited, but a culture to be celebrated.

HypeKit is: $hit-hot tracks for sports and lifestyle promos, a constantly updated collection of trend musical genres that are built specifically for hi-energy and dramatic promotional usage in tv, film, video games, and ads… it’s the latest catalog from our content partners The Burst Collective, and it’s available now at The License Lab.

Proud of this set, I am.

Strong concept, happy with the launch, and we’ve got some killer tracks from TheMattSmith in these first four albums.

I busted my ass on these.  Please tell all of the music supervisor friends all of you obviously have.

So it’s real. Finally.

We exist. The License Lab is a thing.

Okay… deep breath… realizing we’ve only hit the starting line, not a finish line of any kind, but we’re motivated and psyched beyond words.

First, some quick acknowledgements…

Our ace branding—designed by none other than the inimitable Aaron Draplin of the Draplin Design Co. in Portland, OR—still excites us even though we’ve been looking at it every day for the better part of 2011. Love it, love it, love it… thank you, Aaron, for starting us off on exactly the right foot.

Our shiny new (iPad-friendly and 100% Flash-free) website has been designed and coded by the incredible team at Instrument, also in Portland, OR. Huge thanks go to everyone there, from Instrument’s principals—longtime friend, JD Hooge (who designed our BurstLabs.com venture and the original Burst Collective branding a decade ago), Vince LaVecchia, and Justin Lewis—to the development team of Jonathan, Bob, Ryan, Thomas, Stefanie, Phong, Truen, Mark, and the original coding and design dynamic duo of Martin Linde and Shawn Petersen… just can’t thank them enough for giving us a strong framework on which to build our business.

We also have a pretty talented team of people ready to kick some ass, some of whom are active here on tumblr, such as Matt and Daniel, as well as (not so active on tumblr… nudge nudge) Mike and Kyle, our Partner and Business/Sales honcho Dennis, our fantastic new assistant Brooke, our data-wrangler/social-savvster/music-supervisor Andrew (also an active tumblr, indieandyy), new audio master guru Justin, and fantastic content partners like Ken and Scott of Global Genius and Sam Ecoff of Red Rocket.

Lots to do between now and the beginning of 2012, but we wanted to take a minute to thank those who helped us get started, and provide an advance peek at the company and our new site to our tumblr friends and family. So, thanks!

Now back to work.

This is kind of a big deal, you guys.

"As of Dec 1st I will be joining the guys at Burst HQ as they launch the License Lab. For the time being, I will still be taking on mastering projects as usual (and some mixing as time permits) but I’ll be doing it at Burst HQ. I’m a bit sad to be leaving the studio in Bay View but I’m excited to be working with the guys at Burst/License Lab in their remodeled facility."

Justin Carl Perkins this morning announced he’s joining our studio, Burst HQ, as we prep for the imminent launch of our new music licensing venture, The License Lab.

Pretty stoked to have Justin joining the team here, I have to say.

This is cool news.  Excited to have Justin hanging around.

Here’s me playing with the AniMoog for iPad (which is still on sale for a ludicrous 99 cents) while composing new music in a teaser we made for The License Lab.  We’re about a week away from launching the new website and the License Lab Tumblr should be live any day now.  Really exciting stuff coming, you guys.
