Apollo 1

Futuristic and heartfelt tech-house / commercial techno. Female rhythmic but tonal vocals guide us in a dreamlike way, reminiscent of the orb “It’s a Fine Day” – Halycon Remix which we totally recommend. Sweet vox combined with sampled music box chimes and deep synth pads create a retro theme but with an ultra modern, clean and emotional twist. Suitable for high class sequences, fashion, technology showcases, anything that is future facing with feeling.

A to the K

Full bodied laid back hip hop, I can see California lens flare, sunny cruising past beautiful people, feels urban but crisp with bold beats, lush synth chords and intricate DJ scratching. Clean, fresh and cool, with a sense of power and style. Would work in promos, car related programmes, or any stylish showcase segment. Like Summertime by Jazzy Jeff and the Fresh Prince, but without Will Smith trying to rap and much much cooler. Highlight is the massive chorus section at 1:16 – full of sweet synth impact.

Occupy (Suite)

Positive, earnest woody and organic. Harmonising guitar arpeggios, piano, cello, and percussion evoke a feeling of hope, well-being and a positive outcome. Suits positive stories, scenes of triumph over adversity, and heartfelt family moments. Suite with various mixes.

Vice

Imagine Beverly Hill’s Cop mixed with a bit of “It was acceptable in the 80s” and this is what you get. Unashamedly bold drums joined by rhythmic synth stabs and bass, then for me it really comes into it’s own around one minute in, when you realise that with the introduction of electric guitar that we are actually pretty funky up in here. Elements of fast cut establishing sequences, 80s montage scenes, dance scenes, retro stuff, and some sort of comedy scene where everyone is running around a big house without everyone knowing.

African Chill

A nice chunk of traditional African vibes, with arrhythmical counter-rhythms, shakers, xylophone and flute, a perfect ad-length tune for family occasions, exotic products, for some reason I’m imagining an oxo advert. There is an anticipation of togetherness and community, and feelings of positivity, lightness, culture and celebration.

Happy Days (Suite)

Slow searching piano and solo violin reminiscent of “Spiegel im Spiegel” by Arvo Part. Sweet, innocent,yearning, with a powerful emotional impact.

Montage

A sad short piece. Pensive harp is joined by pizzicato strings, then by soft flute and horn to end on an unhappy note. These instruments would normally be perfect for a jolly cartoon piece, but not today, today the cartoon is sick, and the others look on in fretful concern. They wish for a time when things were better.

Forêt de Broceliande

Sad solo flute. That’s it. And you don’t need anything more, perfect for a lament over the hills of war casualties, shredded flags rustle in a somber wind. And in her chamber, lady Guinevere brushes her hair as she softly sings to the ghosts of her fallen loved ones.

ATA

Hard hitting commercial hip hop, 30 seconds of intensity featuring searing lead synth lines, atmospheric vocals and low bouncing beats. Perfect for an advert about, I dunno, something electronic, something new and innovative but street? It’s glitchy, crunchy, edgy, urban, somehow european.

AP Action Live 60 secs

Amazing orchestral production in a frenetic desperate chase. It feels like something massive and cataclysmic is bearing down at you, there was no time to warn anyone or gather anything, the only thing to do was RUN. Is it a monster? Is it a natural disaster? Is it an army? Full orchestra climaxes with a doom laden soft bellow of horns.
