LOS ANGELES (CelebrityAccess) – Indie label Ninja Tune has hired Johnny Katovsich to join its 8-person global sync team.
Katovsich, who has worked in music supervision at Fox Cable Networks, Viacom and Lionsgate Films for years, will now make the leap to label services, representing artists such as Bonobo, ODESZA, Young Fathers, The Heavy, Amon Tobin, Peggy Gou, Bicep, Fink, RAC, What So Not and Laurel, for syncs in TV, film and trailers.
Commenting on the move to Ninja Tune, Katovsich said: “I am thrilled and honored to join the Ninja Tune team. I can’t wait to help build on their incredible legacy. I’ve been drawn to the independently constructed, forward-thinking label and artists for decades.
“The music minds and culture creators on the squad have been putting in wonderful work and the current roster shows it. I’m excited to observe and support the ever-changing moves of Bonobo, genre-defiant Young Fathers, the otherworldly imagination of Thundercat and the rest of the Ninja approved sounds past and present. The future crew is impressive too, with Helena Hauff, the beautiful soul of Conner Youngblood, the always strong Bicep and so much more to explore.”
Ninja Tune’s head of Worldwide sync, Martin Dobson, added: “Having Johnny come on board is an absolute pleasure. After exporting some of our best sync minds from the UK to take on the US scene, being joined by one of L.A’s most experienced and liked supervisors is a huge deal for our expanding US operation.
“Johnny brings with him a huge list of clients who he can genuinely call his friends and a knowledge of Film and TV that’s hard to equal. Having him join our team, work with our established artists, newly signed musicians at the start of their careers and all those in between is very very exciting – see you at the next Social Service!”
