New Elevator

Electronic synth track. Breezy synth intro with chunky tropical beats underneath. Chilled beats and a laid back lounge vibe. Synth build to a funkier section, more prominent funk bass guitar and catchy synth motif. Fresh, colourful and bright, synth sunshine, calming background music in a luxury elevator or lounging in a flashy spa. “Been around the world and ay-ay-ay…” Lisa Stansfield lounging in early 90s ibiza, perfect for smooth and cheesy adverts and similar TV.

Front Street

Vintage rock ‘n’ roll track. Drum intro, laid back sparse funk guitar, 60s-style keys. Female vocal chorus enters, singing subtle, dreamy ‘aaahs’. Strings enter over funky guitar, walking bass guitar and retro keyboards. A 1960s-esque psychedelic keyboard and string section before a rock ‘n’ roll guitar solo. Cool, laid back, upbeat and retro. Brings to mind ’60s London, as well as ’90s Britpop, groovy young folks swanning around swinging London. Perfect for an easy-going, fun advert or background music for a retro TV/Film sequence.

Kon Tiki Nocturne

Funk rock ‘n’ roll guitar track with added jazz flute. Grungey 90s-style guitar intro, drums, jangly guitar, steady bass line and funk guitar follow all at once before a complete change to a funky section with jangling guitars and freewheeling jazz flute. Return to original rock riff with an extra layer of funk guitar. Returns to jazzy section before a jazz/funk break and bright, melodic guitar solo. Upbeat, positive and sunny, would suit an advert featuring fun people getting together, kicking back and having good times.

Get Charged (Righteous Remix)

Funky 90s vocal and sample track. Vocals burst in from the start, laid back 90s samples, squelchy beats, cymbals, funky keys. Added orchestral strings add a serious note under the breezy beats. Chilled and cool with a slightly serious edge, a mash up of samples and influences, swinging between cool and intense. Ultimately a funky call to action.

Non-vocal version available.

Sidewalk Strut (Instrumental)

A smooth and steady funk groove. Hi-hat and broken guitar chords are joined by a walking bass, guitar melody and kick drums. Sax and bongos get the party started, before a busy bass line, funk guitar chords and more bursts of sax take things up a notch. Dramatic melodic stabs toward the end build anticipation for the return to funkytown. Laid-back, cool, chilled but fun and funky fresh. Imagine the opening credits of a 70s cop buddy show, as the unlikely pair cruise around NYC, or a pastiche of this genre. Also suitable for advertising products guaranteed to give you a good time.

Focus (Dharana)

A slow and unhurried build with synth strings and radiant tonal swirls. A roving bass line joins at 0:40. At 2:09 it breaks into something classy, a laid back but grooving rhythm section bears down and comes into its own at 3:33, losing the swirling synths, but adding rhythmic piano stabs. At 7:05 the swirls are back but now pulsing in time; at 7:49 our original strings and swirls are back again, finally at 9:14 the track gradually breaks down towards a faded end. Glamourous and dreamy with a killer groove. I’d imagine this working for a sophisticated branding video, for luxury products and/or spaces.

Africa

Confident, dynamic and well produced reggae, with a strong brass section and a tight arrangement. Elements of dub, imagine a laid back version of “I don’t like cricket”. Will suit beach, club, lounging scenes where you haven’t got a care in the world. Will suit ads, travel videos, anything with an exotic and bold vibe.

In Between

A sensual patchwork of sounds that goes deep into funk and soul territories, with a solid bass line and catchy electric guitars to create a cool mix of pop, funk, soul and fusion. An interesting combination of early Phoenix and Jamiroquai, available with or without vocals.

West Side at Night

Catchy and groovy, with modern dub beats and a dusty low-fi feeling that take you for a spin in a city full of lights and graffiti. Good for urban settings with a skewed retro look, but also for showcase and promo videos.

As Lovers Do

Crisp and smooth, with a marked jazzy brass influence but also Latin remainders and juicy funky guitars. Soft and romantic with an exotic edge, this is pure gold for the lovers of smooth jazz, with top notch solo performances and great taste in the arrangment.
