Upbeat, triumphant and audacious, a self-assured synth odyssey to match an epic visual delight.

Dark techno track. Throbbing beats, vocal samples and a wash of deep, heavy rumbling synths, underpin a high pitched synth hook, trap beats and an energetic build. In full swing with syncopated beats, synths and deep, playful vocal samples. Murky, menacing and brazen, strange Burial-style techno, perfect for a fashion film or edgy documentary.
Tense drum ‘n’ bass track. Drum ‘n’ Bass breaks over woozy, neon synths. Strange modulations and cold electronics effects create an unnerving and hypnotic atmosphere.
