Born to Win

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.

The Slip Up

Irish-Cretan slip-jig. Fusion of Irish and Cretan styles, Irish slip jig form played on saz (stringed instrument like an oud or mandolin), Cretan lyra and bendir percussion lending an Eastern Mediterranean and modal Arabic sound to the uptempo dance tune. Mysterious, tense and energetic; a curious, lively dance of different cultures with a singular, hypnotic sound.

Cuban Guitar

Afro-cuban salsa played on guitar. Smooth, gentle acoustic guitar melodies and jazzy chords in salsa style with hints of flamenco ornamentation and woodblock percussion keeping the syncopated salsa beat. Chilled and laid back with a sensual intensity in the guitar melodies. Like Buena Vista Social Club, perfect for an advert or documentary with Spanish/Cuban/Latin American flavour.

Zomorud

Instrumental fusion of Greek, Turkish and Irish folk musics. Unpredictable time signatures, non-Western scales and rolling melodic phrases played on Cretan lyra and Middle Eastern saz, joined by violin and subtle percussion.

Sombre yet determined, delivered with passionate vehemence, perfect music for a global documentary or Film/TV scene representing Turkish or Middle Eastern culture.

La Peru

Peruvian instrumental with charango and cajón. Stringed, guitar-like charango plays a melancholy melodic hook, while a second charango provides intricate accompaniment. Gentle percussion from cajón gives a subtle rhythmic flavour while supporting the melody. Emotional, passionate yet quiet and restrained, reminiscent of Manu Chao, full of romantic anticipation to suit a sizzling onscreen lovers’ dance or for a travel documentary or advert with a Latin influence.

Close

Gentle EDM track. Nostalgic synth chords and electronic whooshes like accordion in reverse introduce the track. Gradual build with a rapid electronic whirring brings in a fat, shiny synth hook and trap beats. Bright and positive with a slight nostalgic romanticism perfect for a summery advert or upbeat documentary.

Big Bad Wolf

Electronic club banger. Fades in to an epic build with synth hooks and an EDM beat. Vocal samples reference 90s Beastie Boys but warped and skewed to match the intense pace of the track. Insistent, aggressive and restless, a hyperactive rush of electronics, imagine a rapid-fire montage or experimental visual mash-up.

Charango

Charango instrumental. Delicate, beguiling repeated arpeggios grow into rhythmically strummed chords in a Spanish classical guitar style on this lute-like South American instrument. Passionate, emotional and sensual, imagine this accompanying an onscreen dance scene or a thoughtful travel documentary.
