Spring Is In The Air... B-Movie Beats On The Air Waves...
17 Mar 2013
C'mon spring... Snow? That aint right!!!
Thankfully what is right is the Warner Chappell Production Music's new release B-Movie Beats!
This album features five tracks from Alan Gold/Agzilla and the album is really interesting and exudes high quality production values throughout...
All the composers involved really gave a great account of themselves and delivered some really cool tracks...
Big Up... of course at the helm was the creative genius that is the mercurial Mr Roberto Borzoni, this guys is a beast when it comes to concepts for projects, attention to detail and of course the finished product (wait til you see the cover artwork!) .. On top of that he's a really cool dude to work alongside... One minute he's in the lab on some downtown science with us.. the next moment he's all up in a huge facility rocking with a full orchestra and is equally at home either way! Massive respect due..
Really enjoyable project to write for, I hope it does really well and in true B-Movie style inspires a sequel to unleash the terrors once more!
Check it out: B-MOVIE BEATS CLICK HERE
More exciting stuff in the pipeline and updates will appear as soon as non disclosure is up...
Thanks to all that rock with us, shout to Fantasy Rock as usual for back end improvements on the site...
Great New Year!

23 Dec 2012
Just wishing everyone who has supported and shown love in 2012 a very Merry Christmas and a Happy, Healthy, Loving and Prosperous New year in 2013...
Been a good year here at Agzilla Central, bit early for an end of year round up but it's highly unlikely to happen otherwise due to our intention to kick back relax and enjoy good company, good food, good times....
See you all in 2013 and have a safe and fun holiday season...

2012 - The End Of The Beginning!
01 Jan 2012
Well here we are... 2012 the year the Mayans predicted apocalypse and i wonder if they meant financial?, freedom and liberty of the people?, or just plain old fire and brimstone for all?
Because despite the gloomy news and strangely mild weather, notwithstanding the drizzle.. I feel strangely optimistic right now! Could be a start of a new year thing, fresh page, next chapter, new ideas... I just know that if you can think it and see it in the minds eye clearly you can make it happen!
So once more into the breach we go.. ready for war..ready to do battle with the competition to win the game, call the shots... get the placements and work it to the body and the head!
Big shouts and respect to all the usual crew... you know who you are and as always gratitude is extended unto you forever for all the support and love you show as we walk the road together!
The very best of luck to all and may your hard work be rewarded also....
Peace. One Love.

Dezeen Design Competition Winners - Agzilla
12 Apr 2011
Spring is here....Quick News Flash... One of our tracks has been picked to participate at JamScape, an experimental audio installation in Milan developed by Jawbone and Yves Behar of fuseproject.
Tracks have been programmed to be played through five monolithic forms constructed from 1,642 of Jawbone's Jambox wireless speakers (above) in the installation, located in the Ventura Lambrate district of Milan.
JamScape is a bold audio experiment that captures the idea of liberating and unleashing sound. Developed in partnership between Jawbone, Yves Behar, and his creative agency fuseproject, JamScape uses Jawbone's new JAMBOX wireless speaker and its punchy audio as building blocks to create a uniquely social experience in the form of a sound lounge.
You can also read more about this here:Dezeen-Jambox-Milan
Needless to say, we are very happy to be included in the audio soundscape for this event and think the new shiny Jambox will compliment our mixing on the go via Macbook very nicely....
Special shout out to www.garymorga.com for the link, check his stuff out it's fly!
Happy Days, Spring is indeed in the air!
Until Next Time... Peace and Thanx to all who make it what it is!

This update is gonna need to be brief, it is with deep sorrow and great sadness that we have to say farewell to two of the contributors to the Concrete Roots LP and also two personal friends..
We have lost the legendary 'Lincoln Sugar "Granulated" Minott' and our very own funky guitar and studio virtuoso 'Big Al'
Our thoughts and prayers, best wishes and positive vibes go out to their family, children and friends at this tragic and difficult time...
These two inspirational musical souls will be sorely missed but never forgotten, their musical legacy will be cherished and their spirit shall live on forever....
May they rest in peace and be remembered well....
Respect, One Love..
Big Al & Sugar Booga Minott
Until next time round... Peace to all who continue to fly the flag high... thanx for all the love and support..
21 May 2010
Seems like the best time of year is finally here!
We're into mixing down stages of a lot of stuff right now... been a busy couple of months!
Concrete Roots is gonna be a great project, and what with the ultra cool Nas and Damian Marley "Distant Relatives" record dropping right now it's looking good for modern reggae related music, if you haven't checked it out already go and do so... it's worth the price of admission!
There's a lot of other loose ends getting tied up as well.... gonna be a good summer season..
Thanx as ever to our supporters and friends... watch this space!
Special thanx to Scott Johnson, Lowenbad and big Lazzo for contributions over this last two months.
Bring It On!
20 Feb 2010
It's been cold long enough, bring on the spring already, anyway things are warming up in the Casa De Zilla, the new improved facility here is sounding nice and music is getting written at an alarming rate, the projects are starting to sound nice and the final pieces to some puzzles are falling into place!
Concrete Roots is getting it's final voice shortly, Come forth is in it's final third, and a new project for the good folks at Boosey/Cavendish Music is sounding really nice too...
I know it's like speaking in code and all a touch secretive but good things are worth waiting for so watch this space people..
Thanx to all the regular crew who check in and those who offer us support, work and a good time.
Catch you all soon..
The New Years Has Arrived!
24 Jan 2010
2010 is here, now it's starting to get kinda "sci-fi-ish", like before we know it 2020 will be here and then it sounds like we should expect to see spaceships n stuff floating overhead..
But instead we'll come back down to Jan 2010, which is bringing us at Agzilla.com good news, interesting opportunities and hopefully some long running projects soon to be resolved.,,
We've just had conformation of the inclusion of a very special musician to us on the forthcoming and long awaited Concrete Roots Project, plus possible final new featured artist on the last track to be recorded for the project.
The Lazarus album "Come Forth" is also finally nearing completion, the project has been through it's changes but it'll stronger for it, we feel a lotta people are going to like this one, gonna be interesting, worth the wait!
We should also (hopefully) soon be announcing our allegiance with a certain high profile Games Console Game Publisher, details have to be kept hush hush for now, but we cannot wait to be involved and getting busy on that, should be real fun, always been a personal dream to be involved in that area, not suprising since i played Defender as a kid, and also currently owning a geniune 1979 stand up arcade machine of Asteroids in Black & White by Atari... Watch this space..
Lastly, bigs up to Roberto Borzoni, FC Harmony, and all our regulars and supporters.. we are considering adding a blog to this site, because the news is just becoming one anyway.. would it be a good idea? email and let us know?
Until next time up.... Peace.

21 Aug 2009
As the year moves on, it gives us great pleasure say things are progressing nicely, there's some spectacular possibilities waiting in the wings to be announced very shortly we hope..
In the meantime, SkySports came to us at very short notice via Alex Black at Cavendish Music (Big Up!) with a brief for a rugged urban/rap statement of intent, skill, power and determination for a promo for coverage of Andy Murray at the US Open, the question being whether Mr Murray can project himself to world Number One... Does he have what it takes to go all the way?
It was a good job to do, with no stress or delays, very smooth, no faults... it has just been added to the clients/videos section where you can check it out for yourself.
Advantage Agzilla... (we love saying that!)
Until the next serve.. Out.

Agzilla Represents On New Nokia N81 Music Phone!
07 Apr 2008
Just to let all and anyone know, and to express our gratitude to those good folks over at Universal Publishing Production Music.
We are proud to announce that the track 'Spitfire' written by Alan Gold & Yorke Eghan as part of the Hip Hop chronicles and featured on the UPPM Hip Hop Pop Crossover CD has been featured as one of the tunes that comes preloaded with the new Nokia N81 music phone.
I have personally walked into a Vodaphone store and had the assistant take a new phone out of the box, power it up and play me our song! It was a very satisfying feeling despite the guy thinking i was somewhat crazy.....
So to all at Universal who gave us this opportunity and allowed it to happen.
We thank you.
Alan Gold (Agzilla) & Yorke Eghan (Lazarus)

A nice promo spot for Skysports HD covering the US Open, with the focus being on whether Andy Murray has what it takes to make world number one. The brief was simple, speed, skill, power, determination, wrapped up in a dose of urban grit, Hip Hop and Rap was the obvious and in this case correct choice, which made this even more pleasure to undertake at very short notice, all in all, advantage Agzilla, and a very special shout and thank you to Mr Alex Black for lining it up. Out!!
Son Of BabylonFeature Film Trailer
Released at the Cannes Film Festival 2009 Directed by exciting director Mohammed Al Daradgi this was a joy to see and hear, a simple but elegant piece perfectly highlights the mood, subject matter and beautiful cinematography, Kader Achouri provides the perfect musical tone with his classical piano style in this trailer for this amazing film.
This ad features a track that was written by Agzilla for BMG Zomba as part of their extensive production music library and was picked up for this Dentyl commercial which aired in the first quarter of 2007. It had a fairly extensive run on UK national terrestrial channels and digital stations in primetime slots. Fresh!
British Heart FoundationSick Rick Campaign
The brainchild of those good folks at Domestic Science & Razorfish, Sick Rick is the anti hero leading the 'revolt' against the junk food that's sold to our innocent children. This campaign for the British Heart Foundation consisted of six of these short films, all needing various edits and movements around the Sick Rick theme, and yes they wanted it to sound as dirty and distorted as that.... if you want to watch the rest of Rick's repertoire they can be found at: Junkmonkeys.tv

The Stussy skate team world tour film, directed by the late James Le Bon. Representing the International Stussy Tribe's clothing line, the skaters tour the worlds coolest spots, poppin' tail slides, kickflips, ollies and rail slides as they go. Cool, fashionable and more like a funky video diary with beats. This film helped establish this already loved cult clothing brand worldwide by bringing it to the streets on an international level. This clip shows Tokyo, Japan and Brixton, United Kingdom. Vibe Holds The Tribe!
Cold Dead HandsShort Film by Kaz Ove
Indie film making on the cutting edge, this is a tense journey through the psychology of the gun from the guns perspective, the sound content is mostly sound design and effects with a cool Hip Hop title theme courtesy of Agzilla. This is intense viewing for adults only, be warned!
The Clothes ShowClothes Show Live
TV spot for the clothes show live, models strutting their stuff, designer living and a grungy electro rock theme. The sound of now made to order.

The Virgin mobile 5Cent campaign was a huge success and scored a Titanium Lion at the Cannes advertising festival, mini rapstar 5Cent actually made public appearances and signed autographs of the back of these adverts in Australia. In reality the music and vocals were supplied by us and the actor lip synced the entire thing for camera...

Directed by Theo Tagholm for the BDP media Group, this is some cutting edge fashion. The music for this is as twisted as the imagery and the campaign could possibly scare you into buying their jeans, great job and everyone was very happy if not a little twisted....
Sony WalkmanArtist Campaign - 'Danny'
Part of a multiple version campaign featuring cutting edge visual artists and music, this ran throughout Europe. The brief was 'something frenetic and trashy' to reflect the urban aspect of the artist and grab your attention.
HsbcGlobal Alliance Launch
The brief wanted a world music style rolling groove rhythm with slow building strings, marimba and percussion. Very corporate, kind of dated now but does what it was supposed to and shows versatility, plus the client was happy and that is what is most important after all.
Be On TvBring the masses to the masses
The agency was Momedia/Endemol with director Kevin Petillo, this is fast, furious reality bites back television, made to mimic the style and idea of post apocalyptic public broadcasting, this is as frenetic as it gets, beware!
Wrangler JeansMore than a number Campaign
Utilizing big breaks, neck snapping snares and a booming 808 kick, featuring an LL Cool J look alike complete with trademark Kangol hat, this was a slick and memorable advert, beautifully shot with great music, it represents the influx of Hip Hop into popular culture. This music was written by the now defunct Ronin Collective of which Agzilla was a major part, hence it's inclusion here.
A series of adverts based around a basketball groupie leaving messages for NBA stars who refuse to take his call because he's such a nerd, we get to see the guys hanging out doing their thing while our hapless fan try's to make an impression. The brief was grainy rugged Hip Hop of the day designed to suit an answering machine.
40 Eastbourne Terrace'40' Corporate Short
Property development in the Paddington basin, a vision of progress with slick animation, the music brief was 'futuristic yet warm, the sound of progress' the clients were very happy with this one and it apparantly made a huge impression on their investors.
