FM RECORDS specializes licensing music to firms that engage in placement of music in film, TV, advertising and video games. To that end, FM RECORDS guarantees the most authentic sounds, rhythms and styles of indigenous Jamaican reggae music, presented in its purest form.

    FM RECORDS was formed in 1999 in Kingston, Jamaica and specialized in the introduction of Jamaican reggae singers to the global marketplace. In 2006 FM RECORDS opened up the South Florida office to focus on exploiting the catalog for Film / TV / Advertising / Video Game placements. Shortly thereafter, FM RECORDS established its international publishing company, FLAVA ROOTS PUBLISHING/KINGSTON SONGS, by affiliating with a large number of the world’s most renowned recording labels and placement firms for sublicensing. FM RECORDS is also the full owner of the entire catalog of copyrights formerly owned by German-based music label HAMMER MUSIK GMBH. Today FLAVA ROOTS PUBLISHING & KINGSTON SONGS are perhaps the only highly-proactive music publishing companies, as they are two of few reggae firms that can reliably grant rights to third parties without hassle or confusion about copyright ownership. Our company quickly and accurately registers all songs with publishing rights societies, as well as the Library of Congress, to ensure hassle-free sub-licensing of our reggae catalog titles.
