Resort by the Ocean

Sparkling synthpop. Delicate beats, funky muted bass line and shimmering sweeping spacey synths. Atmospheric, ambient and hopeful, calm yet fun, perfect positive background music for a chilled advert or a reality TV show where robots go to Ibiza to find love.

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.

All Alone (Suite)

Wistful lounge-jazz number. Yearning, saxophone, louche piano, gentle shuffling drums and calm, plodding double bass. Dreamy, nostalgic and romantic and relaxed, suitable for a retro TV/Film scene, a first dance between new lovers, or reminiscing on a first love, now a distant memory. A throw-back to the love stories of old black-and-white films.

Bed track has no sax, more subtle, calm and chilled.

A Beautiful Day

Cheesy summer synths. Shimmering sustained synths, delicate snare beats and whooshing synth effects introduce a low key synth melody. A quieter passage of sparkling arpeggiated synths, bouncy keys and washed out beats creates a breezy atmosphere before the melody returns more energetic and full of conviction. Sexy, seductive and summery, sun, sea and synths, perfect Balearic muzak for adverts, or comedic TV montages – like Alan Partridge slow-motion Baywatch jogging into the sunset.

White Sofa

Lounge jazz track. Gentle strummer acoustic guitar, fleeting synth fx, subtle drums with laid back jazz keyboard melodies on top. Occasional electronic and vocal samples wash over the shimmering soundscape. Chilled, positive and laid back. Air-does-Ibiza. Would suit an easy breezy advert for stylish beverages or white sofas, or as background music for soothing TV.

Eivissa

Laid back lounge track. Shimmering synths, horns samples, shuffling drums and a breezy acoustic guitar riff. Vibraphone adds a touch of jazz and a tinkling brightness. Balearic vibes, sunshine and sparkling turquoise waters. Cool, easy-going and calming. Perfect background music for a holiday advert: sipping on a refreshing cocktail, watching the burning orange sunset in a dream destination. Or suitable as relaxing background music for factual TV.

Late Night Rendezvous

Sultry late night jazz. Skulking double bass, romantic celeste melody, lazy, loping jazz drums. Smooth saxophone solos over the laid back foundation. Moody, seductive, late night jazz, would suit a slow-paced advert or retro, nostalgic TV/Film scene where our characters’ eyes meet across a half-empty bar…a lovesick detective and a sassy divorcee…both tired and jaded…but have they given up on love?

Bed track features Drums and Double Bass Only.

I’m Mystified

Smooth lounge jazz number. Piano chords, double bass patter and soft drums begin, joined by wistful saxophone melody. Piano takes a dynamic solo accompanied by drums and more busy double bass. Back to emotional sax melody. Nostalgic, warm and fuzzy, yet cool and laid back, perfect for a romantic old-school TV/Film sequence, Casablanca-style star-crossed lovers staring sadly into their stylish cocktails, intoxicated by love.

Bed track has No Saxophone.

Let Me Grab My Cloak And Dagger

Slinky jazzy harpsichord track. Walking jazz double bass, dynamic hand drums, two intersecting lines of snaking jazz harpsichord melodies. Mysterious, intriguing and playful, suitable for a short advert for a cheeky product, offering you a handy shortcut to making an impressive meal, or a Pink Panther-style mystery on TV/Film.

‘Underscore’ version features bass and drums only.

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.
