Film & TV

Hotei’s music has been used extensively in film and television (TV adverts and TV shows) and placed in games or used online, and its an actively growing part of his career in music. A selection of these “syncs” (music placements) are on this page.  Syncs happen in a variety of ways, sometimes a specific existing Hotei song is requested for a use, other times a brief is received and Hotei may choose to write for that brief. If you are interested in using one of Hotei’s songs, or talking to his team about writing to a bespoke brief, then please get in touch via the contact tab on the home page.
