As hero Alex Rider (Alex Pettyfer) strives to derail the evil plan of Darrius Sayle (Mickey Rourke) in this summer's biggest action packed adventure STORMBREAKER, one of the secret gadgets that has been at the fingertips of the film makers has been independent music site (

Launched in 2005, is a leading music site featuring original music from over 1,000 independent artists. It allows them to upload their music and make it available to the public for preview and purchase.

Associate Producer for the hit film, Jessica Parker, said, "We wanted to find a strong and original track to complement the theme of Stormbreaker. allowed us to experience cutting edge music across a broad range of genres. When we heard the Transluzent track featuring Carla Vallet, 'Blame', it blew us away."

Stormbreaker, released in UK cinemas on 21st July, follows in the path of two recent commercials that also sourced music from artists; the recent Vodafone 3G advertisement featuring the Berkshire band Rebus's track 'Work Song', and the Audi Q7 SUV ad that featured Carla Vallet's song 'Streets of Tomorrow'.

It is fantastic to see Arkade now evolving in this broader way to a wider audience."
