J.J. Abrams launching ‘Loud Robot’ record label
Music fan and Hollywood bigwig J.J. Abrams has peppered his films with Beastie Boys references and snuck in some music-related cameos in Star Wars: The Force Awakens. Now he’s launching a record label as part of his production company Bad Robot that will be named, wait for it, Loud Robot. According to The Hollywood Reporter, the new label will operate as its own entity but it’s releases will show up in Bad Robot films, TV shows, and games. Synergy! Loud Robot was created in partnership with Capitol Music Group, and will be overseen by current Bad Robot music supervisor Charles Scott, who’s responsible for the music heard in the current Star Trek film series, as well as the shows Roadies and Castle Rock. Also coming aboard will be Glassnote marketing head McKee Floyd, and artist management executive Nicky Berger. As for singings, that’s a mystery box Abrams has yet to reveal.
