KPM Is Moving to Extreme Music

Once fierce rivals, now K.I.S.S.I.N.G. in a tree, Extreme Music and KPM Music are the new production music power couple. Yes it’s true, someone alert the press, from January Extreme users will now have full access to the iconic KPM catalogue alongside the world-renowned Extreme Music in an all-you-can-eat production music buffet.

British born and bred, KPM originated from a partnership in 1830 between two musical instrument makers, Robert William Keith and William Prowse. During the golden age of television in the 60s/70s, KPM was the go-to music company of the time, providing some of the most celebrated themes in TV history. From Wimbledon, Grandstand, Animal Magic, Grange Hill and Mastermind to famed USA classics such as The People’s Court and Monday Night Football, these revered pieces of pop culture are still notorious today and made household names of KPM songwriters including Keith Mansfield, Alan Hawkshaw, Brian Bennett and Syd Dale amongst others.

Now with its deep musical heritage, the catalogue is not only globally celebrated by the industry’s premier music supervisors and creators, but also sought out and widely sampled by some of the most famous commercial producers – including Jay-Z, Drake, Gnarls Barkley and Fatboy Slim.

An iconic production music catalogue for the more discerning user, KPM is a rich, deep well of musical genius created by experts, for experts.

There’ll be more announcements to come in the next few months, but in the meantime, if you have any questions, reach out to your local rep any time!
