Dreamy R’n’B. Bloopy synth intro then woozy dreamlike synths contrasted with dancehall woodblock beats. Deep bass beats and shaker and a synth skank complete the intricate rhythmic patchwork. Soulful piano brings wistful sophistication. Downbeat and nostalgic, yet bright and hopeful, instrumental bedroom hip hop to suit onscreen romance or gentle, thoughtful content.
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.
Dreamy synths under hip hop beats with helium vocal samples. Male vocal samples interspersed with child-like vox, like Sampha in a tender duet with a chipmunk. Laid back beats and rippling piano chords keep it chilled. Thoughtful, gentle and soft in contrast with the chunky beats. Would suit emotional or tongue-in-cheek content.
Hip hop / Arabic fusion. String intro, swooping and choppy, beats drop in contrast, harp-like synth noodling on top brings lightness. Flute takes on the melody to end. Serious, determined and intriguing, insistent strings and beats to suit cross-cultural content.
Glamorous upbeat lounge track with electric guitars. Cheesy synth intro joined by seductive bass and sultry drums. Effects-laden electric guitars play a melodic motif on top, in contrast with the smooth bass. Chilled, peaceful and sensual, feels like being at a beach bar in Ibiza. Also perfect for TV sports coverage or a stylish advert.
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. Intense, direct and single-minded with a contrasting softness from the synths, would suit a serious documentary about youth or urban issues, or a reality TV montage.
Bloopy, psychedelic electronic track. Gentle, reverb-laden synth patterns, repeated, morphing into a noisier sound, growing more intense. A wash of fuzzy, atmospheric noise drowns out the synth melodies. Hints of My Bloody Valentine, Stereolab, Broadcast and Air, sepia-tinted electronics mingle with harsh noise in a satisfying contrast. Warm, gentle, searching and plodding to begin with, more intense, powerful and expansive as the track progresses. Perfect atmospheric film or documentary music, retro-futuristic and edgy, reminiscent of the Lost in Translation soundtrack.
Bloopy electronic with feedback and sound effects. Opening synth phrase on repeat, creating a sense of propulsion. Noise and deep, grounding sound effects create a dark, murky atmosphere. Grows in volume and intensity before the noise drops out halfway through. The synth idea drops out and woozy, dreamlike synth drones are drowned out by harsh electronic feedback noise. Driving, hopeful and tense to begin with, then abstract, intense and overwhelming. Perfect for a sci-fi world or frightening documentary about the future of humankind.
Mysterious solo piano track. Busy, melancholy piano melody over sparse, broken chords, moving between major and minor, from darkness and confusion to moments of light. Simple, curious and reflective, like an conversation with yourself, would suit a thoughtful, wintry TV/Film moment or puzzling documentary scene.
Piano and orchestral string build. Orchestral strings undulate under soaring strings building to a powerful percussive section with vocal-like electronic samples and continuing epic strings. Quiet section with vocals then percussion rejoins building anticipation and tension to a multi-layered textural soundscape. Contrasting soft piano section to finish. Strange, dark and intriguing, pagan sounds reminiscent of singular Scandinavian pop like the Knife. Perfect for an onscreen threat or a bold, epic and uncanny film or TV scene.
