Sombre urban electronica. Dark synth lines, pulsating beats and hand clap effects, joined by epic synth chords and broken phrases of a mournful piano melody. Downbeat, melancholy and uneasy, would suit an earnest TV scene or documentary exploring a troubling issue.
Dark, shadowy electronic track. Intro fades in from darkness, wavy synths growing louder with a whistle-like synth build about to boil over. Builds again before the womps fade to nothing. Bassy, dank and murky with fizzing, feedback-like effects, would suit an edgy documentary or urban advert.
Deep, dark, drum ‘n’ bass. Tinny, delicate fast beat intro, joined by D’n’B beats and a chilling build on glacial synths. Full beat drops, womps over a harsh electronic beat sample , glassy and hard. Laser beats and vocal samples shoot through, building a tense, claustrophobic atmosphere. Dark, threatening and strange, a nightmarish soundscape, like a post-apocalyptic world of malfunctioning technology gone rogue.
Improvisation on Turkish cumbus, stringed, oud-like instrument. Free-form improviation with runs, ornamentation, repetition and silent pauses, growing slightly faster and more intricate towards the end. Mysterious, intimate and sparse, Turkish and Middle Eastern sounds perfect for a documentary about the region or to accompany a vast, deserted landscape onscreen.
Dark trap track. Snaking, ghostly synth melody lingers over trap beats. Latin-style accordion sound materialises and a reggaeton beats kick in bringing batida vibes before dropping back to a sparse beat. Vocal samples and frenetic beats hype up the build.

Dark techno track. Throbbing beats, vocal samples and a wash of deep, heavy rumbling synths, underpin a high pitched synth hook, trap beats and an energetic build. In full swing with syncopated beats, synths and deep, playful vocal samples. Murky, menacing and brazen, strange Burial-style techno, perfect for a fashion film or edgy documentary.
High-octane EDM. Fast-paced build up, laser synths build with increasing tension, action movie-style. Drops to more D’n’B/Trap-style beat with hight pitched synths and a foreboding atmosphere. Danger is never far away with threatening vocal samples and squelchy, murky effects. A frantic synth build before another drop. Tense, dark and dynamic, sounding like the Chemical Brothers doing futuristic electronica for a menacing onscreen fantasy world.
Tense synth and piano track. Sparse, anticipatory piano intro with soft synth string chords. Single piano notes ring out building to a sombre choral section on synth, like a grandiose church choir.

Dark, foreboding and full of suspense, an apocalyptic soundscape for when technology has consumed humanity.
