My Way

Retro hip hop/R’n’B track. Piano intro, heavily nostalgic with a warm, fuzzy atmosphere, soon joined by lush strings on the same melody. Like a prelude to the ‘real’ hip hop track that never kicks in, only subtle shakers and sparse clicks bring the track to modern times. Calm, peaceful and dreamlike, a 1960s wonderland with lush, analog-style production, perfect for a throwback on screen or as a romantic aside in a documentary or film scene.

Ruins of an Era

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.
