Epic orchestral with dark beats. Choppy orchestral string intro, added bass strings provide build to a tight beat drop. Piercing string stabs bring tension over steady string melody and erratic beats. Tensions build to a dizzying level with added layers of competing strings. Frantic, driven and nerve-wracking, glam meets grit, 007 meets the Fast and the Furious, perfect soundtrack to a challenging onscreen quest.
World fusion with beats. Samples depicting a fight give way to male choral vocal samples over a snaking violin line and global beats. Beats come on stronger, settling into a deep Arabic-style groove with choppy violins adding drama later on. Curious, dark and slightly menacing, danger in a foreign land, perfect for Killing Eve style globe-trotting TV drama, travel documentaries or classy car adverts with an international twist.
Dark trip hop with orchestral strings. Dark, rippling harp sample then urgent, choppy cello over swirling synth pads. Choppy violins repeat the tense melodic riff over trip hop beats and vinyl scratching and subtle hip hop vocal samples. Cool and self-assured in the face of danger, perfect for a nerve-wracking TV drama, a dramatic documentary or sombre content.
Mysterious electronic synth track. Repetitive synth intro, bouncy and arpeggiated, with spooky synth whooshes. New section of spookier synth riff, twinkling percussive bells and strings straight out of an old James Bond film, building anticipation. Sustained synth section with shuffling percussion becomes a dynamic, rhythmic synth section. Like Santigold but weird and wonky, topsy-turvy. Plodding yet classy, a real mystery. Intriguing and beguiling, would suit a provocative advert, a flashy product, sexy and stylish but a hint of danger.
Tense orchestral build. Repeated choppy orchestral string motif builds, electronic hints added and orchestral elements provide base. Melancholy violin melody emerges interspersed with military-style drums fills. Layers of lush strings join with subtle horns, building a dense orchestral soundscape with incongruous electronics bubbling beneath. Emotional, reflective and suspenseful, a worrying track to suit a film scene where man is recklessly destroying nature, a daring, dangerous feat is being attempted, or unrest of the mind threatens to overwhelm the protagonist.
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.
Atmospheric slide and acoustic guitar track. Slow beginning with slide guitar joined by fast broken chords on acoustic guitar building tension with guitar sound affects. A melodic motif on acoustic guitar builds up, joined by slide for the ending. Tense, sombre and dramatic, anticipation builds throughout, like the lead-up to a duel in a Western movie. Perfect for a documentary or Film/TV sequence. You can almost hear the crunch of gravel underfoot and the glint of desert sun on spurs.
Intense acoustic guitar instrumental. Dark, pensive intro growing in speed and intricacy. Quick, repetitive strumming creates a drone effect. Hints of Spanish/Latin American guitar, Western movie soundtracks, as well as Middle-Eastern sounds. Suspenseful, tense and brooding, moving like a seductive dance, would suit onscreen tension on Film/TV or a sombre documentary about seedy goings-on and modern-day cowboys.
Moody electronic intrigue. Pulsating electronic beats, anticipatory synth strings, fizzling synths punctuated by throbbing beats. A plinky plonk melody enters, the repeated synth notes building tension. Choppy orchestral strings, fleeting echoing synth and crackling feedback. Mysterious, suspenseful and nerve-wracking, perfect for a tense TV/Film scene, sneaking around corners, tip-toeing across creaky floorboards, trying to remain invisible because the consequences could be grave.
Electronic orchestral string fusion. Orchestral string intro with single delay-effect piano notes building anticipation. Breaks into 90s trip hop drums with dramatic orchestral strings, piano chords and a dirty synth line. Synth break, back to the string motif. Final section is without strings, beat-driven breakdown. Glamorous, dangerous and sexy, a 90s throwback with a modern edge, where Massive Attack meets Clean Bandit, would suit a slick car advert or could bring some glamour to a gritty British TV show or film about modern youth.
