World fusion with beats. Dub reggae bass line with orchestral string playing on an Arabic-style melody, melancholy choral vocal samples, moody electronics, and piano chords over a trip hop/ breakbeat beat. Brooding, thoughtful and searching, a vast, global sound perfect for travel documentaries or cross-cultural content.
Dark trip hop with orchestral strings. Dark, rippling harp sample then urgent, choppy cello over swirling synth pads. Choppy violins repeat the tense melodic riff over trip hop beats and vinyl scratching and subtle hip hop vocal samples. Cool and self-assured in the face of danger, perfect for a nerve-wracking TV drama, a dramatic documentary or sombre content.
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.
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.
Electronic trip hop instrumental track. Water sounds, electronic lasers, organ-like drone snatches. Naive riff on cutesy synth turns is joined by trip hop beats, shuffling drums and synthesised string interludes. Fleeting sitar samples and scratchy electronics punctuate the beat. Electronic/drone break before the riff and frantic electronics, like vinyl-scratching, rejoin until the end. Cool, laid-back and urban, a throwback to the baggy trouser days of the 90s, with a hint of Morcheeba. Would suit adverts for clothing or lifestyle products, or as background music for an urban drama or documentary.
Bright and smooth, with groovy medium-tempo beats, 90s synth leads, and soothing female vocals that bring a Protection-like Massive Attack flavour to the scene. It delivers early Trip-Hop elements in a kind of hopeful mood. Would suit promo and corporate videos, but also play well as soundtrack for fiction films.
Farewell to Arms
Build of electronic arpeggios over rasping synths leads to a massive industrial drop at 0:15. Smooth, dark and serious. Elements of Massive Attack and Tricky. 1 minute ad length.
Calm and contemplative, with hypnotic pianos and smooth electronic loops that make clever use of sound design techniques to bring a futuristic flavour to the table. Will suit emotionally charged scenes seasoned with synthetic fragmentations.
Death Is a She Named Barsheen
Groovy and suspenseful, with alluring mystical vocals and a dark progressive synth-led rhythmical pattern that evoke exotic worlds caged in a first period Massive Attack-like tune. Structured in three parts, it builds up to 1:30 and then delivers a minute of aggressiveness led by a gritty electric guitar. Wonderful as background and title sequences for futuristic, dystopian and ancient/exotic settings.
Reflective and mellow track featuring a bell-like synth. At 0:48 a Trip hop beat makes its way in and marks a shift in intensity. Morcheeba and Groove Armada alike, this piece is perfect for chilled, peaceful settings, possibly offering a certain degree of anticipation.
