Glittering drum ‘n’ bass from outer space. Drum intro, joined by shimmering, anticipatory synths and a drum build, Beat drops with happy synth chords and hyperactive synth arpeggios. 8-bit style computer game music, like a magical, rollercoaster ride on rainbows across the Universe. Happy, colourful and cute with a hard edge from the pummelling beats, would suit a TV show aimed at teens or documentary looking at contemporary culture clashes.
Gentle electronica. Soft synth intro with calming whooshes and ambient sounds. Peaceful synth melody embellished with sparkling effects, chugging and sweeping sounds and glitchy punctuation. Chilled, magical and sparkling, like a computer game dreamworld, nostalgic for the future, perfect for contemporary documentaries or fantasy Film/TV.
Laid back, dreamy R’n’B. Gentle, jazzy synth chords introduce ethereal vocal sample, joined by sparse R’n’B beats. Calm and tranquil with an urban edge, soothing yet atmospheric, perfect for a cool yet chilled advert, thoughtful TV scene or contemporary documentary.
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.

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.
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.
