duotone audio group

duotone got together with our friends upstairs Merkeley to put together a subtle yet inspired score for this fun holiday spot for Mercedes-Benz.

After seeing a early cut of the film, we felt inspired by the quirky nature of the spot, and the way it flipped the Christmas trope on it’s head. To that end we thought that a quirky indie film score would compliment the spot.  With a big heartfelt swell at the end, we think it really sells the grown-up kid notion of the commercial, and we had a ton of fun sewing it all together.


duotone teamed up once again with OW* and the incredible Eef Barzelay to create this baseball themed spot for Chobani “Flip”.

The song is based around the “Love This Life” brand music we created earlier this year… but with a ballpark twist. The track borrows from “Take Me Out To The Ballgame”, and features a wider palette of instruments than past campaigns.  It’s a fitting score for America’s favorite pasttime, and our favorite (American) Greek yogurt.

Always remember to Love This Life!


The Samsung Galaxy is the next huge thing in mobile technology. RG/A needed something to capture the ease, ubiquity, and power of Samsung’s new Pay technology, and they turned to duotone for help bringing their vision to life.

It was decided that “My Favorite Things” from The Sound Of Music was the perfect sentiment for the spot, but the song needed an update. We were all too happy to oblige, creating a modern R&B re-imagining of the track.

We enlisted the vocal help of Imani Coppola, an incredible singer and friend of duotone. The end product is an body shaking, electrified, and altogether new version of the classic song.

duotone was tapped by Mother NYC to create an retro jazz track for Stella Artois’s new “Host Beautifully” campaign.

Inspired by the smooth stylings of the world’s greatest hosts, and influenced by the equally smooth sounds of gypsy jazz, we created a heavily scored and stylized track to match the buoyant visuals.

Stella-Web-BannerThis spot was also the inaugural post mix for duotone audio post, and features custom sound design by our resident mix wizard Andy Green.
