Producer and Platinum writer OD Hunte who is the production half of the band Ten Days Till with singer/songwriter Lifford is toasting the recent success and placement of Get Them Hands Hi in the smash US movie series American Pie.
American Pie 6 Beta House features a lengthy use of the band’s song in the ‘pool sequence’ near the film’s finale. Other recent media placements for Get Them Hands Hi include, Paula Abdul’s Hey Paula Episode 7 and EA Sports NBA Live 07. “It’s a real buzz to know that Get Them Hands Hi is being used in such high profile US media, especially as we are an independent act,” adds OD Hunte “but then I’ve been getting some really good synchs recently like my track Givin’ It Up, which was used in The Hills,” he continues.
