Playlist Sector Tabs

Sector Tabs are a feature of our playlist library added to make your life easier. They’re great for when you want to save time selecting a playlist or when you want some added inspiration! Designed to make selecting background music quick and easy, the sector tabs provide a list of playlists covering a variety of genres, tempos, and moods.

The sector tabs appear at the top of the playlist library and give you the ability to filter playlists we would recommend for your business.

Sector Tab Examples

Every playlist in our library also comes with a tempo indicator, description and running time (before the tracks repeat).

What genres do our playlists cover?

Where do we start? People often think there’s little genre choice for royalty-free music, but that’s just not true. We have stacks of choice and if there’s something you need that we don’t have in the library just ask. We’re always happy to see what we can do.

What is Royalty Free Music?

It’s music that can be played without the traditional PRS PPL Music Licence. This is because the PRS PPL collection agencies do not collect the royalties for the artist we use. Instead, the artists are paid for the use of their music by a music licensing agency. For you, this means you can play music in your business without the additional cost of the PRS Music Licence.
