DALLAS - FirstCom Music ( has issued a new release geared toward television news projects. "TV News Music & Custom Scores" offers a fresh approach to music for news, says Ken Nelson, senior VP/executive producer for FirstCom Music.

Each TV news package includes multiple themes with numerous lengths, varying from: :30; :20; :15; :10; and :05-:08, among others.  Types of themes include main opens, AM, Midday, Sports, Weather and Investigative.

Firstcom is also working with Dallas' EhkoMusic on the production of the Velocity Library. The library is distinguished by its cutting edge sound and the crew at EhkoMusic will work on expanding the sound and bringing it in line with what DJs and bloggers recognize as the next trends in modern music.  

Jeff "Skin" Wade and Ruben Ayala are the players behind EhkoMusic. As partners in the Alternate Take record label and Hydroponic Sound System, their work has been featured by Nike, the Chris Rock Show, the Fox Network, and for youth centered marketing campaigns for Toyota's Scion.
