Experimental Lo-Fi Hip Hop track. Ambient sounds with a degrading, crackling quality, kitchen pottering, water whooshing, industrial machine-like noises, joined by resonant piano chords and crunchy beats. 90s, Hip Hop beats drive the track, with looped piano chords and background noise a constant. Mysterious, experimental, chilled and darkly playful, like exploring the Looney Tunes Haunted House, off-kilter beats and samples to suit a Vice news style documentary or contemporary urban filmmaking.
Euphoric electronica. Steady dance beats introduce the track with bubbling synth effects, building up with colourful synth chords to the bouncy melodic climax. A quiet mid-section, before anticipatory chords and driving beats lead to another banger of a chorus. High-energy, punchy and contemporary with a retro feel, reminiscent of Calvin Harris’s ‘This Is What You Came For’, with bold build ups and euphoric choruses, perfect for a glossy reality TV montage sequence – imagine the Love Islanders hitting the tiles – or a silly, fun advert.
Piano track with orchestral strings. Repetitive piano, broken harp chords and scratchy string overtones fades out. Returns with lyrical cello melody and more dynamic piano melody. Builds with fuller strings and many layers of activity. Builds further with choppy strings, fuller bass parts and soaring violin melodies over insistent piano. After this storm, the clouds part, revealing a softer, more gentle strings section, breaking into a major key, hints of sunshine. Final section is a decidedly sombre string part. Repetitive, urgent and dramatic, like contemporary Philip Glass piano minimalism with added cinematic string flourish. Perfect for tense factual TV/Docs or a thrilling advert for a stylish, highly covetable new product.
Clean electronic track with drones. Slow, sustained harsh electronic, sitar-like drones, high pitched and spiritual. The tune drops, bleepy, cute and warm, sounding ultra modern with a suggestion of African rhythms. Drones re-enter, causing an interesting clash of moods, bright and bubbly vs pensive and introspective. Beat break, beats return and drones intensify. Mysterious and other-wordly, new and ancient, sparkling electronics contract with harsher, earthier tones, at once like Mura Masa feat, Charli XCX and Indian classical music. Would suit a fresh advert or TV show, visuals both cutting edge and ethereal.
Multi-instrumental contemporary folk. Gentle marimba intro, joined by sustained violin and cello fragments. Tinkling piano mimics the strings, leading to a darkening of mood and intense, high register string-lead movement. Resolves to gently swaying, lingering light strings and piano. Next section feels like gentle rocking in an ocean trawler. Harp and strings duel steadily to a choppy finale. Intriguing, dynamic and searching, a curious, undulating, seafaring piece, perfect for mysterious TV/Doc scenes.
Multi-instrumental contemporary jazz/folk. Light-footed marimba intro into a marimba riff with counter melody. Violin and cello join with a brief melody, continue over the marimba. Polyrhythms emerge from multiple layerings and harmonies. Quiet marimba break before a burst of vigorous strings. Dynamic new section with sparse piano, strange rhythms and freely soloing marimba. Slow down and fade to finish. Playful, folky and a bit magical, secret goings on, covert, playful encounters and mysterious but jolly woodland fun. Like the soundtrack to a jaunty but slight dark Enid Blyton tale.
Emotional piano and orchestral string track. Broken piano arpeggios accompanied by deep, lyrical strings. Builds passionately to reach the higher register of the piano and the lowest cello notes. Slow-paced, reflective and moving, the melodic simplicity of Satie, coupled with a cool, contemporary vastness, like Sigur Ros. Perfect romantic music for a heartbreaking onscreen moment or for a reflective walk away…
Summery electronic track. Fat, warm, wobbly synth chords introduce a cute helium synth melodic motifs. The chunky beat drop, synth melody is doubled, fuller synths join. Twinkly harp-like break followed by scratchy synth, Skrillex-style D’n’B rhythms and high pitched synths. Modern, futuristic and utopian, positive, saccharine synthpop for fresh youthful adverts or fun Factual/Entertainment TV.
Punchy urban electronic track. Dramatic 90s-inspired catchy synth strings, bouncy beats, unforgiving electric guitar and church music choral samples. Serious, forceful and full of conviction, a modern mash up of guitar and beats perfect for an youth advert or for a heightened moment in a contemporary TV show.
Drum ‘n’ bass-influenced hyper pop. Laser synths bust out the intro, with anticipatory synth chords and repeated melody on high pitched synth. Tune drops with DnB beats, arpeggiated synth, fat synth chords, samples and whoosh effects. Excited and happy with a hint of thoughtful nostalgia, young, romantic, emotional Skrillex-style pop to suit fashion adverts or cool, contemporary TV/Doc sequences.
