Dresden

Bouncy synth track. Driving rhythm underscores a bright, triumphant synth melody on top. Another synth line is added, the track awash with sustained synths. A synth break and back to the full melody. Motorik, upbeat and positive, perfect for mid-paced driving visuals. 80s synthpop with hints of indie and a warm glow of nostalgia, also a perfect match for retro TV/Film/Doc scenes.

Bostlingen

Bouncy electronic synth track. Opens with a pulsating electronic beat, joined by a bright synth arpeggio. Sustained synth chords above shift slowly from major to minor. A wonky synth solos above over the steady groove. Epic, hopeful and motorik. Perfect for a car advert or retro TV sequence. Like a Krautrock Chariots of Fire, beautifully 80s, the perfect track for punching the air in slow motion.

Vice

Imagine Beverly Hill’s Cop mixed with a bit of “It was acceptable in the 80s” and this is what you get. Unashamedly bold drums joined by rhythmic synth stabs and bass, then for me it really comes into it’s own around one minute in, when you realise that with the introduction of electric guitar that we are actually pretty funky up in here. Elements of fast cut establishing sequences, 80s montage scenes, dance scenes, retro stuff, and some sort of comedy scene where everyone is running around a big house without everyone knowing.

Sleepy Lullaby

Gentle piano and glockenspiel lullaby. Slow-paced, shifting broken piano chords accompanied by piano and glockenspiel softly playing a simple, childlike melody. Soothing, calming, loving and warm, would suit an advert for something that will safeguard your loved ones, allowing you to rest easy, or a sentimental TV show about cute kids or beloved pets.

‘Underscore’ version features gentle broken chords only, slightly 80s feel.

Listen to the Dialogue While I Do My Thing

Atmospheric synth instrumental. Layers of echoing synth. Fat, warm, 80s reverb-laden sound. Sombre orchestral string effect, chiming piano and glacial beats gives a serious, driving feeling. Intriguing, mysterious and strange, Twin Peaks-style ambience crossed with Enya and the Crimewatch theme tune, would suit a dark TV drama or as tension-building background music to an eye-opening documentary.

Intrigue

Plodding open-ended synth track with strings. Blobby beats, serious 80s/90s synths and dramatic choppy strings over a relentless steady beat. Stern, sophisticated and exotic, would suit a dramatic film scene featuring glamourous European subterfuge, or an advert for a classy product that will drive others mad with jealousy.

Purple Bar Swing

Breezy lounge-jazz number on saxophone, piano, strings and drums. Sax melody introduced from the beginning. Smooth sax solo accompanied by piano, drums and strings before return to the melody and a fade out. Smooth and laid-back, suitable for a TV or Film montage or link sequence, or a nostalgic advert. Frasier meets 1980s/90s lounge music.
