Ruins of an Era

Tense synth and piano track. Sparse, anticipatory piano intro with soft synth string chords. Single piano notes ring out building to a sombre choral section on synth, like a grandiose church choir. Echoed on strings, lush and moving before a sudden choppy string section brings the track to a close. Dark, foreboding and full of suspense, an apocalyptic soundscape for when technology has consumed humanity.

Noise Water Beats

Experimental Lo-Fi Hip Hop track. Ambient sounds with a degrading, crackling quality, kitchen pottering, water whooshing, industrial machine-like noises, joined by resonant piano chords and crunchy beats. 90s, Hip Hop beats drive the track, with looped piano chords and background noise a constant. Mysterious, experimental, chilled and darkly playful, like exploring the Looney Tunes Haunted House, off-kilter beats and samples to suit a Vice news style documentary or contemporary urban filmmaking.

Days (Suite)

Chilled 90s instrumental. Summery synth samples, woozy and hazy to begin. Laid back 90s-style drums kick in, vinyl scratching added, bringing full 90s vibes. Subtle percussive vocal samples in the break with washy samples Beat drops again, remains to a blissed-out finish. Hopeful, warm, content and positive, a relaxed instrumental, prefect for bright, summery adverts – picture friends getting together, having a drink, or cruising around town in a beat-up car on a hot summer’s day.

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.

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.

Reminiscing

Downbeat trip/hip hop track. Starts with a moody electric guitar riff, heavy with reverb and delay, dark and brooding. Electronic samples and complex beats are added, before single piano notes add to the sombre mood. Melancholy, serious, slightly dark with flashes of futuristic silver, reminiscent of Massive Attack and downbeat, emotional 90s films.
