Bouncy electronic track. Duo of arpeggiated synth lines, the punchy beat drops, groovy synth line, joined by high-hat drums. Melodic break of 90s-style percussive synth, a beat break, before an outro straight out of a French house track: warm, anticipatory major synth chords and a mellow bassline. Suspenseful at first, excited, upbeat, groovy and fun with a slight element of danger. suitable for a serious action film scene that gains a sense of humour as the action progresses. Or a chase scene or advert of varying moods, with an ever-changing backdrop throughout.
A synth-rock banger. Drum intro builds to electric guitar riff with pounding drums, a more melodic section is followed by a drum break,tension building to the max before the original theme returns with a vengeance. Dark, edgy, brash, rock ‘n’ roll, suitable for Fast and the Furious-style macho Film/TV scenes, or for ads for flaming massive whopper burgers with extra spicy sides…not for the faint-hearted.
Bollywood -style track with a contemporary R’n’B edge. A snaking sitar line is followed by tablas and an electronic beat. A flute melody joins before moving to a more intense, dramatic orchestral string section. Vocal samples and a change of rhythm with jazzy hip hop drums, before going back to the original sitar motif. Seductive, mysterious, intense and edgy, would suit adverts for products reflecting diverse city environments where the traditional and the contemporary mingle; or a TV/Film sequence referencing an edgy version of the Bollywood aesthetic.
Happy intro with solo violin riffs and evolving arpeggios, quickly form a firm driving groove with a strong roving bass line. Mood is neutral but chilled, then after a few breakdowns at 3:07 it reduces to a stomping 4-to-the-floor cut down beat before the rest of the elements crash back in. I could personally listen to that reduced beat all day – awesome production throughout. Understated, refined and sophisticated. Vox version has a soulful male voice (Elliot Chapman).
Lush pensive evolving synths introduce joined by a muted build up of kick, bold funky rhodes and synth bass arpeggios. The track teases you by rising and falling, not ever quite kicking in but building deliciously with percussion and synth pads, keeping you on tenderhooks thoughout. Dark, sultry and sophisticated dance music. Vox version has a soulful male voice (Elliot Chapman).
Crisp summery house beats with tasteful conga and a bassline that is just falling over itself. Soft rhodes and tinkling percussion create a lush atmosphere, reminds me of a dreamy beach party in Ibiza. Alone – Blissfully dancing on your own maybe? As opposed to being alone and sad with no mates 🙂 Vox version has a soulful male voice (Elliot Chapman)
This track is a favourite – its atonal syncopation and eastern alarm call makes it perfect for some sort of urban cognitive dissonance. Always urgent, always unsettling, and juxtaposed with the sonorous classic timbre of live cello. Think ballet in a post-apocalyptic party.
Round bouncy synth in an arpeggiated monotone start, joined by organ and cheerful high synth. Building lightly with tiny cymbal strikes, then breaks down into a small organ section. Final section builds to a full beat but still has that gentle laid back feeling to it. Warm, gentle and reassuring.
Filtered arpeggiated synth bass builds to a clear beat with piano. Joined by epic strings. Serious showcase, sounds like achieving something against the odds. Ad length.
Medium-fast synthpop with vocal ahhs and oohs. Strong beats and violently happy, makes you want to run free and fast. Young, fiercely proud, pulse quickening and driven. Reminiscent of MGMT’s “Kids” but harder and faster.
