Virgin Holidays continued their ‘Mojo’ campaign by creating ‘Mojo the Musical’, “the most eagerly anticipated nautical themed musical of the year″!

M&C Saatchi asked Mcasso to compose songs for a 15 x spot campaign, promoting Virgin Holiday Cruises.

Dave Reynaud & Richard Atkinson wrote and produced the songs, and Mike Connaris attended the casting and directed & recorded the actors’ vocal performances.

Kellogg’s Rice Krispies’ promotion campaign depicts the relationship between a young girl and her mother. Entitled ‘Days Out’, the heart-warming ad, created by Leo Burnett, shows the girl tirelessly wrapping up gifts for her mother. When the mother sees one is a box of Rice Krispies with a free voucher to Legoland, the girl breaks into laughter, and they share a beautiful moment together.

The South African song was composed by Mcasso’s MD Mike Connaris and recorded at both Angel Studios and Mcasso’s Studios in Carnaby Street. Mike brought together two Zulu groups to create a stunning sound, with the South African Zulu choir providing the backing vocals, and Siya from Zulu Tradition singing the lead melody.

Radio 1’s Greg James contacted Mcasso to help with a fun project – a Bublé-fied version of two classic tracks, for him to play to Michael Bublé himself on Greg’s radio show.

Mcasso re-arranged and produced Queens Of The Stone Age’s ‘No One Knows’ (above) and Beastie Boys’ ‘Sure Shot’ then recorded Greg’s slick vocals in our studios.

We worked with Oscar-winning Director Daniel Greaves to compose the Score, Sound Design, and Closing Credits for his Short Film, Mr. Plastimime.

Mcasso Composer Mike MacLennan travelled to Bratislava with Mike Connaris and Daniel Greaves to record the Bratislava Symphony Orchestra. You can watch the ‘Making Of The Score’ left:

We then asked Greg James to come back into the studios to provide the vocals for the Closing Theme, a track composed and produced by Mcasso’s Mike Connaris called ‘I Raise My Hat’, which you can listen to below:
