A to the K

Full bodied laid back hip hop, I can see California lens flare, sunny cruising past beautiful people, feels urban but crisp with bold beats, lush synth chords and intricate DJ scratching. Clean, fresh and cool, with a sense of power and style. Would work in promos, car related programmes, or any stylish showcase segment. Like Summertime by Jazzy Jeff and the Fresh Prince, but without Will Smith trying to rap and much much cooler. Highlight is the massive chorus section at 1:16 – full of sweet synth impact.

Clear Water

Atmospheric electronic track. Drum machine beats joined by chordal intro on synth. Arpeggiated synth plays a repetitive melody. Warm sustained synths underpin the bright, clear, undulating melody, fresh like rainwater. Extra texture with added beats and ambient synth. Intriguing, optimistic and cool, soothing synths bringing to mind water droplets on new saplings, cool rocks and epic green/blue vistas. Sounding a bit like Santigold, perfect for stylish eco-advertising, a flashy electric car driving through a crisp mountain road, or travel Documentaries.

HEY

Bluesy rock ‘n’ roll track. Brazen electric guitar riff and wailing guitar feedback, joined by punchy drums and a funky bass line. A new guitar melody followed by a new section, more electronic, glitchy and sample-heavy, moving into espionage movie territory. Brash, urgent and confident, like Red Hot Chilli Peppers soundtracking a Jason Bourne film, perfect chase music, either by car or on foot, through unfamiliar urban streets, or across continents.

Sunset on the Beach

Classic surf rock. Drum intro, followed by mysterious bass guitar, then wonky effects-laden surf guitar chords like the wavy sky at sunset.. Bass and drums underpin a plucked guitar section, joined by the vintage sound of Hammond organ and more distorted electric guitar chords. Wobbly surf guitar solo, then organ break over big chords. Another guitar solo to fade out. Cool, seductive and atmospheric, a retro nod to the music of Quentin Tarantino films. Pure Pulp Fiction, would suit an advert playing on cult film references, or involving smokin’ hot BBQ meats, or a TV homage to Twin Peaks-style dark Americana.

LCS 1

Upbeat, electronic rock stomper. Bouncy synth riff with DnB beats, pauses then crashes back in with added effects-laden electric guitar. Ends on a guitar wail. Driven, single-minded, effervescent and slightly dangerous, perfect theme music for a ‘Fresh Meat’-style drama about dysfunctional University life, or a high energy advert for a youth-giving product.

Front Street

Vintage rock ‘n’ roll track. Drum intro, laid back sparse funk guitar, 60s-style keys. Female vocal chorus enters, singing subtle, dreamy ‘aaahs’. Strings enter over funky guitar, walking bass guitar and retro keyboards. A 1960s-esque psychedelic keyboard and string section before a rock ‘n’ roll guitar solo. Cool, laid back, upbeat and retro. Brings to mind ’60s London, as well as ’90s Britpop, groovy young folks swanning around swinging London. Perfect for an easy-going, fun advert or background music for a retro TV/Film sequence.

Caribana

Laid-back sample-heavy 90s-influenced jazzy hip hop. Samples including male vocals, a crowd of chatting revellers, hand drums, tambourine over an alternating fat synth chord. Opens up to include a bassy synth line and extra warm sunshine synths and gentle piano notes. Breezy, cool and laid back, perfect summer music for a chilled out party vibe, maybe on a rooftop in Brooklyn with a bunch of your beautiful stylish friends.

Ramble

Saxophone led smooth jazz track. Delicate walking double bass, playful jazz drums, subtle guitar chords and soloing saxophone to start. Masterful gentle electric guitar solo then back to sax melody. Upbeat, cool and casual, classic Count Basie-style jazz, perfect as bustling background music for Adverts and Documentaries or for a fast-paced retro montage on TV/Film.

Bed track with No Saxophone available.

Sleep (Suite)

Dreamy electronic soundscapes. Atmospheric electronic noise, warm synth swells, bleepy electronics and fresh waves of cool ambience. Thoughtful, introspective and inspiring, a refreshing walk on an electronic beach, would suit strange Film/TV situations…otherwordly, operating on a different plane.

Build track, added electronics tinkling synth line and swooping synth waves.

I Gave You the World (Suite)

Blues guitar number. Wailing electric blues guitar, laid back slide guitar, classic blues guitar chord progression, walking bass line and gentle easy-going drums. Electric organ ads extra flavour. Plodding, steady, cool, calm and a bit cocky, self-assured blues rock for an American-style advert for some BBQ meat flavouring or for some Film/TV Americana.

Bed version available with No Lead Guitar.
