Epic orchestral with dark beats. Choppy orchestral string intro, added bass strings provide build to a tight beat drop. Piercing string stabs bring tension over steady string melody and erratic beats. Tensions build to a dizzying level with added layers of competing strings. Frantic, driven and nerve-wracking, glam meets grit, 007 meets the Fast and the Furious, perfect soundtrack to a challenging onscreen quest.
Dark electronica with vocal sample refrain. Sparse, bleepy synth intro with watery delay effects. ‘Keep on lovin’ me’ female vocal sample repeated rhythmically over a determined, striding slow breakbeat. Tender yet menacing synths play out a hooky melody on top. Unsettling and tense with a terrifying passion, obsessive yearning to suit a dramatic TV sequence or fashion story.
Hip hop track with orchestral strings. Melancholy string intro. Minimal beats before a bass drop. Deep bass synth mines the underbelly, trap beats up top and church-like bell sample and choral vocal samples add to the eerie atmosphere. Dark, sombre and quietly epic, like Gangsta’s Paradise without Coolio, perfect for an investigative documentary or epic domestic drama of the streets.
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.
Murky hip hop with electric guitar. Plucked fuzzy electric guitar riff, over a heavier, more abrasive riff. Minimal beats to start, building to fast trap beats with deep bass, church organ and vocal samples. Insistent, unyielding and slightly melancholy with a hint of insouciance, would suit dark TV moments or a tense investigative documentary.
Blues rock stomper with attitude. Low-key, anticipatory build up on bass, drums and electric guitar, a heavy, stomping drum groove introduces a raw blues guitar riff and Black Keys-style scuzzy electric guitars. A psychedelic vocal refrain, ‘Can’t Stop Me Now’ of close male harmonies breezes in over the plodding beat. Shredding guitars solo before fade out. Cool, determined and badass, clean, slick, American blues rock for an advert or TV sequence with swagger.
Bleepy electronica with D’n’B beats. Gentle electronics, joined by heavy D’n’B breaks. Sweet, bleepy section returns before a chunky beat driven section. Austere orchestral strings and bright, childlike synth add melodic layers, with underlying chords switching between major and minor. Determined, driven and nostalgic, perfect for a youth TV drama in an urban setting, or as a dynamic accompaniment to an electronics or automobile advert.
Expansive breakbeat track. Bleepy synth over minor synth chords, slow breakbeat underpins an emotional synth melody. Brash bold synths take over, along with chipmunk vocal samples from another planet. Vast, thoughtful and epic Skrillex-like electronica for flashy, ambitious adverts, or an epic reality TV montage or sports coverage.
Trap with epic choral sample. Throbbing bass, dramatic choral vocal sample blasts, drops back to deep bass before vocals return with a busy trap hi-hat beat and subtle electronic effects. Bold, powerful and ambitious, perfect soundtrack to edgy content.
Dark hip hop with gunshot samples. Bleepy synth intro with effects, a foreboding piano riff then a break. Beats build to a deep, punchy, bass synth melody. Piano returns, more beats and gunshot samples. Threatening, tense and frightening, a seemingly bouncy track with a dark underbelly, would suit topical, crime documentaries or content.
