The Militant Upcycle

Bloopy, psychedelic electronic track. Gentle, reverb-laden synth patterns, repeated, morphing into a noisier sound, growing more intense. A wash of fuzzy, atmospheric noise drowns out the synth melodies. Hints of My Bloody Valentine, Stereolab, Broadcast and Air, sepia-tinted electronics mingle with harsh noise in a satisfying contrast. Warm, gentle, searching and plodding to begin with, more intense, powerful and expansive as the track progresses. Perfect atmospheric film or documentary music, retro-futuristic and edgy, reminiscent of the Lost in Translation soundtrack.

Armageddon Voucher

Bloopy electronic with feedback and sound effects. Opening synth phrase on repeat, creating a sense of propulsion. Noise and deep, grounding sound effects create a dark, murky atmosphere. Grows in volume and intensity before the noise drops out halfway through. The synth idea drops out and woozy, dreamlike synth drones are drowned out by harsh electronic feedback noise. Driving, hopeful and tense to begin with, then abstract, intense and overwhelming. Perfect for a sci-fi world or frightening documentary about the future of humankind.

A Strange Economy

Atmospheric electronic instrumental. Layers of ambient drones suspended in mid air with hints of harmony emerging. Calm, peaceful and dreamy, suitable for a seemingly calm documentary or tv sequence with slightly shifting, moving and wandering, like a raft adrift on the ocean.

Before You Go (Suite)

Chilled electronica. Soft, atmospheric synth build becomes background synth drone under a slow, syncopated, tropical beat. Bright, colourful synth shines on top of an ambient base with growing beats and weightless synth lines reaching out like tree vines. Calm, peaceful and futuristic, a musical utopia, perfect for uplifting TV scenes or as an accompaniment to a soothing, hopeful advert for ethical fashion or worthy causes.

Vocal version features Molly Nilsson-style breathy female vocals – cool, calm and atmospheric with a hint of 90s nostalgia.

The Second Turning of the Wheel

Other-worldly electronics. Bleeps, feedback, buzzing, noise, vinyl scratching under the needle, sound effects and atmospheric drones all intermingle to create an ambient electronic patchwork. The soundscape brightens with more melodic drones and reflective synth lines introduced. Thoughtful, introspective, yet vast and expansive, a world turning inside and out. Suitable for an intense, mind-expanding documentary, or for suspenseful or darkly dramatic TV moments.

Illumina

Quietly epic cinematic orchestral string build with electric guitar and piano. Sustained orchestral strings over hand drum percussion. Warm synth notes and tinkling piano melody bring lightness and joyful anticipation. Angelic choral vocal samples break in before a change to a harder synth section. The sunshine breaks through the clouds with electric guitar cutting through the wash of strings and choral vocals. Piano rejoins with a simple, hopeful melodic pattern. Powerful and moving, yet gentle and thoughtful, Elbow-like emotional build to suit an inspiring advert or a triumphant onscreen finale.

Control

Trap instrumental. High-pitched synth intro and build to the beat drop. Trap beats and a tense melodic synth part. Dark beats and electronic samples throughout. Urban, shadowy and cool, perfect for a TV or film scene following young people up to their usual hustle on the streets at night, or an advert referencing this youth culture.

Golden Blue

Emotional EDM. Thoughtful synth piano intro à la PC Music, joined by cute synth melody, sound fx and fat synth chords. An anticipatory build leads to a Justice-like banger of a chorus. More bouncy synth and an arpeggiated build take us to a piano break, emotional synth and some female vocal samples before an acceleration to another punchy chorus. Sincere, cutesy and euphoric, with fun Calvin Harris vibes, perfect for an advert for a flashy, youth brand or for an energetic TV or Documentary sequence.

Wildlife

Euphoric electronica. Steady dance beats introduce the track with bubbling synth effects, building up with colourful synth chords to the bouncy melodic climax. A quiet mid-section, before anticipatory chords and driving beats lead to another banger of a chorus. High-energy, punchy and contemporary with a retro feel, reminiscent of Calvin Harris’s ‘This Is What You Came For’, with bold build ups and euphoric choruses, perfect for a glossy reality TV montage sequence – imagine the Love Islanders hitting the tiles – or a silly, fun advert.
