Select the best music for your business with our sector tabs!

Background music is a fantastic tool. When used correctly, it can influence shopper browsing time, pace, and even amount spent in-store. However, spending time crafting the perfect playlist based on tempo and genre is something few business owners have time to do. That’s why we introduced sector tabs into our playlist library. To provide a straightforward way for business owners and managers to select and play the perfect background music.

Sector Tabs – select the perfect playlist for your business!

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. Each has been selected for that industry sector and there are plenty to choose from.

The sector tabs save you time on those days when you’re too busy to browse the full library or when you’re unsure of what to play. You’re probably going to find new genres and playlists you may never have considered!

Positioned at the top of the playlist library the sector tabs provide a selection of playlists handpicked by us. The playlists have been selected to provide a variety of background music options that would complement the industry sector. Taking into account tempo, genre, and mood, playlists are designed to create an ambiance and enhance the atmosphere.

Every playlist in our library has been designed by a music profiler using the very best royalty free (PRS PPL free) music from around the world. They are all checked for explicit lyrics and inappropriate content so you can be confident in your music choice.

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.

Genres include


We even have THREE Christmas playlists!

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.

For more detailed information about royalty free/PRS PPL free music check out out our blog What music can I play without a Music Licence.
