My name is Ben, I run WMP, where this amazing roster are housed and have been involved in writing bespoke soundtracks for 14 years.
Piano and Modern Cinematic genres are my absolute focus as I adore fusing classical and modern elements together and I’m intensely obsessed with all things soundtrack related. Nils Frahm is my Elvis. I am quite possibly the worst person to watch TV with as I will insist on watching the adverts, rewinding and listening to the music, sound design and mix intently.
Collaboration is at the centre of everything I do, finding the most skilled, most talented writers and instrumentalists to work with and share in a creative journey is always the way to get the best result.

Hugo Meredith-Hardy is a Writer/Producer/Composer from London, currently working out of the Urchin Studios. He always focuses on the core and emotion of the music, bringing out the character, and never taking a generic or formulaic approach. He likes finding exciting, gritty or unusual sounds by using equipment in ways it wasn’t built for.
Hugo first got his hands dirty in the studio co-producing a record alongside legendary producer Dave M. Allen (The Cure, Depeche Mode), in Mark Ralph’s “Club Ralph” Studio. He has since worked out of a number of studios around the UK, and has been building credits on a number of projects, such as David Gray’s ‘Gold in a Brass Age’, Poppy Ajudha’s upcoming LP, Eleni Drake’s upcoming LP, alongside a huge string of exciting new artists.
Kamal started making music because he wanted to play guitar like Hendrix. And from his early days playing the Match Of The Day theme in school assembly, to later touring the UK with a band performing Kelly Clarkson covers, guitar has remained his main instrument (though it turns out Hendrix can’t be matched, even if you are experienced).
As a young CD collector, Kamal tried to absorb as many types of music as he could, influenced (perhaps more than he realised at the time) by his dad’s “I like anything with a beat” approach to music appreciation. Listening and playing led to production, and then to composition, and upon Kamal’s realisation of just how rewarding it can be to bring visuals to life with a soundtrack, everything became about sound-for-picture. And consequently not long after came the inception of his and WMP’s long and beautiful history together.
The ensuing exploration of adding context through audio has since visited some pretty unexpected calling points for Kamal — writing the theme music for a Sky One reality series, mixing a big-band album, recording a WWII tank, and re-versioning a Tom Jones classic for a TV ad featuring singing houses. If only the projects came with free samples from the end-clients, Kamal might currently be on a TUI holiday in Kuwait with Bear Grylls, reclined on a DFS sofa, covered in Lacoste perfume, eating Maille mustard out of the jar and watching MotoGP on DAZN while a MyBuilder tradesperson fixes the toilet.
The dream is alive.
Stuart Thomas is a Leeds based Electronic Music Producer and multi-instrumentalist. He jumps genres from loud to intimate, and blends styles to tell the right story. He started releasing music as ‘Mountain Range’ in 2012 on a secluded farm in Shropshire. The music has always been of chill out and post-rock inﬂuence, mixed up with danceable electronic beats.
Over the last decade he’s written multiple production music albums (Abbey Road Masters, Felt PM, Ninja Tune, Cavendish Music, Apache) along with thousands of loops for the sample industry (Novation, Splice, Touch Loops, Noiiz) and a steady release of his own music.
He ﬁnds writing in the third person weird, but gets why he’s doing it.
