At Bucks and BDi Music we represent a talented roster of award winning composers and writers who specialise in bespoke writing for Advertising, Film and TV. 

From the seminal film scores of David Arnold, to electronic duo’s Lank&Tank’s award-winning work with BT Sport – we have the breadth and experience to deliver bespoke briefs on tight deadlines and within budget. 

Alongside established Film/TV composers we have a pool of writers who come from an artist background who have chart success, released albums on leading labels and enjoy airplay and support from BBC Radio 1, Beats 1, BBC6Music, Spotify etc. For example, if you are looking for a Grime track why not commission The Heavytrackerz who write and produce with the likes of Stormzy, Wiley, Lethal Bizzle etc. Or looking for a song that sums up that summer festival? Have the bands that recently played Glastonbury, Latitude, Bestival write the track for you.
