Woozy, dark electronica. Vertigo-inducing synths wobble and swerve over bleeps, whirrs and the deepest synth bass, sounding like an alien trying to sing in slow motion. Disconcerting, sinister and strange, would suit a menacing movie scene or a dark alley onscreen encounter…in the future.
Blues rock stomper with attitude. Low-key, anticipatory build up on bass, drums and electric guitar, a heavy, stomping drum groove introduces a raw blues guitar riff and Black Keys-style scuzzy electric guitars. A psychedelic vocal refrain, ‘Can’t Stop Me Now’ of close male harmonies breezes in over the plodding beat. Shredding guitars solo before fade out. Cool, determined and badass, clean, slick, American blues rock for an advert or TV sequence with swagger.
Bloopy synth track with deep underwater bass. Soft, hazy synth lines over repeated bloopy synth melody, reverb effects, and subtle, drum roll-like beats. Downbeat, nostalgic and mysterious, with a hint of danger, would suit an investigative Vice or Vox-style documentary or TV segment. Also perfect for edgy TV scenes.
Downbeat electronica/D’n’B. Fast-paced bleepy laser synths over Drum ‘n’ Bass beats. Marimba-style solo break, beats return. Dark, futuristic and slightly sinister, would suit a gritty, true-to-life urban film or TV drama.
Hip hop with electric guitar fuzz. Scuzzy 90s electric guitar over deep, bassy hip hop beats with distant vocal samples. Rough and ready, brash and bold, 90s swagger, Nirvana meets a banging hip hop beat, perfect for risk-taking content, bold documentary film and TV drama.
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.
Reflective electronic track. Thoughtful warped piano and laid back beats. Expands and grows sonically with vocal and string samples with jazz piano bringing elegance. 90s trip hop vibes, feeling like Massive Attack covering the Wallace Collection’s ‘Daydream’. Dreamy, peaceful and beautiful, chill background music for a documentary or a blissed out advert for summer pleasure.
Experimental Lo-Fi Hip Hop track. Ambient sounds with a degrading, crackling quality, kitchen pottering, water whooshing, industrial machine-like noises, joined by resonant piano chords and crunchy beats. 90s, Hip Hop beats drive the track, with looped piano chords and background noise a constant. Mysterious, experimental, chilled and darkly playful, like exploring the Looney Tunes Haunted House, off-kilter beats and samples to suit a Vice news style documentary or contemporary urban filmmaking.
Electronic instrumental with fat synths. Electronic beats and congas to start, joined by electric guitar build up, anticipatory synths grow to a frenetic, squelchy synth section with industrial beats. Clunky, noisy beats give way to a delicate and funky guitar riff. Builds back to punchy, garish synths and relentless, driving beats. Hyperactive, unpredictable and high-energy, positive party music to build excitement. Would suit a rollicking ad campaign or breathless onscreen chase scene.
Orchestral build with electric guitar. Languid violins suspended, cello adds depth before choppy strings drive the track forward. Tension builds with relentless strings against shifting chords. Choppy strings joined by punchy electric guitar bursts building, punctuated by drums rolls, rolling back to exposed string stabs. Tense, nerve-wracking and threatening, perfect suspenseful music for an action movie scene or audacious TV drama finale.
