Combining two Los Angeles-based music sync and publishing companies under the same roof, Riptide Music and Pigfactory have merged to form Riptide Music Group, the companies announced on Monday.

The combined company will continue to provide music licensing services for film, TV, videogames and advertising, as well as administering international publishing.

According to president Rich Goldman, the two companies worked together to create the production music library Pacifica Music back in 2009, and “found out that we liked each other.” The company will remain in Los Angeles, he says, with Pigfactory staff having already moved into Riptide’s existing office space.

The combined group’s most recent work includes music placements in “Breaking Bad” and “True Detective,” trailers for “The Wolf of Wall Street” and “Noah,” videogame “Call of Duty: Black Ops,” and commercials for BMW and Tresemme. The group’s roster includes songs by Fatboy Slim, Grimes, Dirty Vegas and the Airborne Toxic Event.
