Filter was founded in the beginning of 2007 as a result of the revolt to the current state of the music industry. We think that music should not be pigeonholed and genre categories should not exist. There are only two types of music: good and bad

Seeking Covers of Hit Songs for Licensing Placements
The post houses and advertising agencies we work with seem to have a never ending demand of covers of popular songs. Therefor, we would like to broaden our catalog with inventive cover versions of compositions that have been big worldwide hits.

We are not looking for interpretations trying to imitate the original. We are seeking just the opposite - new takes on well known songs which take them to new, unexpected directions. Covers are usually considered for film trailers and big ad campaigns, so it would be great to hear submissions that have space and a “cinematic” sound. However, if you have a dynamic, aggressive cover of a slow song, that could work too.

Below are some brilliant examples of what we would like to hear:
- Skylar Grey - Addicted To Love
- Vega Choir - Creep
- Lo-Fang - You’re The One That I Want
- Hannah Peel - Tainted Love
- Think Up Anger feat. Malia J - Smells Like Teen Spirit
- Lorde - Everybody Wants To Rule The World
- KI Theory - Enjoy The Silence

Please submit only professionally recorded and mastered songs.

As an added bonus, if your cover is Selected, we will offer to release your music on Filter Label. The songs by our talented artists can be heard in The OA, The Matrix Revisited, CSI: Las Vegas, Nikita, on ads for Nike, Philip Morris, Hachette Filipacchi, in shows on MTV, CNN, Nat Geo, NBC, Esquire, Channel 4 and almost every major TV network in the world.
