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.

Dreams of Neon

Bouncy electronic track. Arpeggiated laser synths shoot into space, bouncy synth chords soften the atmosphere, joined by a laid back, funky synth melody and 80s beats. A dreamy break then retro synth with 80s computer game tendencies takes over. Another calm interlude before YMO-style electric guitar soloing goes rogue. Upbeat, triumphant and audacious, a self-assured synth odyssey to match an epic visual delight.

Dat Funk

Funky synth track. Syncopated beat intro, woozy synths come in sideways and wonky synth melodies create an off-kilter funk jam. Spacey section floating on a synthy rainbow road, electric guitar-like synth melody builds the energy. Alternates between funky builds to a mesh of synths and beats and dreamy synth sections. Chilled, fun and positive, with swing and swagger, perfect for a commercial advert for funky clothing or good times, or for a laid back reality TV montage sequence.
