In this bonus August post, I introduce Industry Music, a Los Angeles-based trailer music company/label established at the end of 2022. They have released 14 trailer music albums since then, along with three sound design and several indie artists albums. But I will, of course, focus on the trailer music ones here, only skipping a few that I didn't find particularly cinematic or that were mostly sound design/horror albums. The current composer roster of Industry Music consists of big names on the trailer music scene, such as Mike Rubino, Gabriel Brosteanu, Mattia Turzo, Jochen Flach, Joep Sporck, René Osmanczyk and Ros Stephen, so you definitely have great music to look forward to!
Let me also share Industry Music's own introduction from their website:
"With over 25 years of entertainment industry experience on the agency and production side, we apply our unique perspective to the music we produce and the relationships we create. From our signature indie label to our premiere trailer music and sound design, every track is special. We meticulously produce each piece of music, working closely with our artists and composers to forge rich stories and cinematic experiences. Our team utilizes amazing relationships for optimal recording, mixing and mastering, giving each track the absolute best chance for success. Whether it’s a powerful song from one of our albums or a designed custom track, our goal is for the music to be much more than a simple tool - we want to captivate and inspire. At Industry Music, we’re a family that truly loves and appreciates all things music, and we’re extremely excited to share and support creative visions and projects worldwide."
Based on their Facebook page and Spotify, most of the trailer music albums appear to have been released between December and February, but since there are no release dates indicated for the albums on the Industry Music's website, I have decided to list them in the order of their album codes in this post. You can listen to the whole trailer music catalog here, but the good news is that all of the albums, with the exception of Rise of the Ancients, are also publicly available and you can find them on your favorite streaming platform! And for additional updates from Industry Music, you can also follow them on Instagram and X, if that's your thing, though I'll make sure to report on any new releases right here on my blog!
Before I wrap up, I want to draw your attention to the beautiful and colorful album artwork. Kudos to Darin Leach who designed at least some of them! For an even better impression, you'll want to check out the animated versions on the Industry Music's website (you need to open the individual album pages for the animations to kick in). Enjoy, and have fun discovering Industry Music's catalog!

I think you'll agree with me when I say that Industry Music offers a diverse and high-quality catalog for a 9-month-old trailer music company. I am certainly very excited for their future releases (and album covers)! What is your impression of Industry Music? And what are your overall thoughts on these posts introducing new trailer music companies and catalogs? Let me know in the comments below! Although I've done this two months in a row now, don't expect these bonus introduction posts to be the new norm – it may very well be a few months before I write another one. Next up is the September news post! Until then, čau!
