Timbaland and Mike “Daddy” Evans make Extreme pact

Producers to create 75 new tracks for production music house

Top producers Timbaland and Mike “Daddy” Evans have pacted with Sony/ATV Music Publishing’s Extreme Music to create 75 new urban pop tracks for the production music house.

Timbaland and Evans — noted for their work with chart-toppers like Jay-Z, Missy Elliott, Britney Spears, Katy Perry and Miley Cyrus — join Quincy Jones, Snoop Dogg, Hans Zimmer, Paul Oakenfold and Mark Mothersbaugh on the Extreme roster. Extreme prexy-CEO Russell Emanuel said, “Our urban music offering is already second to none with Snoop, Quincy and Rodney Jerkins – adding these guys means we now have all the bases loaded.”

The first of the tracks cut under the new arrangement will drop this summer.

Extreme’s tracks have been used on network shows like “Glee,” “Mad Men,” “30 Rock,” “Entourage,” “The Office” and “Gossip Girl”; and features and trailers including “The Fighter,” “Avatar,” “Twilight Saga: Eclipse” and “Inception.”
