PremiumBeat Launches Mobile Application for Music Discovery On-the-Go

"Film editors can now browse and discover new music for their projects from wherever they are conveniently via these new apps and are no longer tied to their desktop. Having this capability at their fingertips will expand discovery and curating opportunities immensely," said Sylvain Grande, GM Motion at Shutterstock. "We're proud to provide a full-fledged tool that is integrated in users' daily workflow, making it easier and quicker to find new tracks and provide new discovery tools."

Music demand created by cultural phenomenons such as 'Stranger Things' and 'Blade Runner' drives strong demand for new sound tracks that replicate these retro sci-fi scores including new genres like Sci-Fi Synth and Nordic Noir. The PremiumBeat team is constantly sourcing the newest sounds to meet the dynamic needs of its audience. Users of iOS and Android can discover, listen to and add tracks to their playlists, all from their mobile device.

The new mobile experience is vastly improving the way video editors search and browse music for film, video and media projects. Mobile access has become a must-have for creative professionals. With the new PremiumBeat application, users can now browse through handpicked production music from the world's leading composers by genres, moods or most popular search categories, syncing playlists and adding favorites on-the-go that will save to their PremiumBeat account for easy downloading later.

PremiumBeat has also introduced a design overhaul and new discovery functionality to its site, www.premiumbeat.com, which also launches this week.
