Retro hip hop/R’n’B track. Piano intro, heavily nostalgic with a warm, fuzzy atmosphere, soon joined by lush strings on the same melody. Like a prelude to the ‘real’ hip hop track that never kicks in, only subtle shakers and sparse clicks bring the track to modern times. Calm, peaceful and dreamlike, a 1960s wonderland with lush, analog-style production, perfect for a throwback on screen or as a romantic aside in a documentary or film scene.
Bloopy, psychedelic electronic track. Gentle, reverb-laden synth patterns, repeated, morphing into a noisier sound, growing more intense. A wash of fuzzy, atmospheric noise drowns out the synth melodies. Hints of My Bloody Valentine, Stereolab, Broadcast and Air, sepia-tinted electronics mingle with harsh noise in a satisfying contrast. Warm, gentle, searching and plodding to begin with, more intense, powerful and expansive as the track progresses. Perfect atmospheric film or documentary music, retro-futuristic and edgy, reminiscent of the Lost in Translation soundtrack.
Atmospheric electronic instrumental. Layers of ambient drones suspended in mid air with hints of harmony emerging. Calm, peaceful and dreamy, suitable for a seemingly calm documentary or tv sequence with slightly shifting, moving and wandering, like a raft adrift on the ocean.
Country rock jam. Slow strummed acoustic guitar chord intro with subtle snare drum. Full drums and fuzzy electric guitar kick in with a simple riff. Heavier chorus section with more of everything. Electric guitar solo shreds through the guitar later in the track. Brash and confident with a hint of plodding reflection. Perfect for a dramatic TV/Film scene or documentary following a slightly tortured character.
Dark synth track. Mid-tempo distorted synth pulse to start. Dreamy synth washes over the track, added fragments of soft synth melody with fuzzy synth tendrils curling up through the unrelenting, motorik beat. Machines meet nature. Full of suspense and anticipation but with a hint of excitement, a shocking surprise could be just around the corner. Suitable for a tense scene, or as sombre, atmospheric music for a cutting edge documentary.
Reggae instrumental track with jazz piano. Rocksteady rhythms, jazz piano solos, smooth brass interludes, bubbling bass guitar and sax solos. Relaxed and blissful at times. Summery but with an urban edge. Jamaican culture through the lens of 1970s London, perfect for Film/TV/Doc scenes set in a volatile, sweltering cityscape.
Dynamic, laid-back 90s jazz/lounge track. Shuffling jazz drums, warped sun-soaked synths, jazzy bass riff and delay-laden melodies. Chilled, fuzzy and a bit off-kilter, with hints of Stereolab and trip-hop. Perfect for a TV/Film sequence or montage moving across a landscape dappled in multi-hued sun spots.
Laid back, feel-good country style instrumental. Electric guitar, double bass and shuffling drums dominate this relaxed country plod. Slide guitar adds colour and a warm glow. Light-hearted, relaxed, chilled, happy, warm, positive, fun. This is a colourful, playful country tune. We’re at a beach shack sipping gigantic fruity cocktails, or on a feel-good retro TV show about unlikely buddies, or in a quirky Pixar animation. More Spongebob Squarepants than Willie Nelson.
Shorter version is 1 minute long.
Fuzzy trip hop instrumental. Stop/start rhythmic synth and drum riff. Robotic, fuzzy synth plays drum ‘n’ bass influenced riff, joined by laser beam samples over a trip hop drum beat. Cool and breezy but with a determined edge, a bit like an instrumental Thievery Corporation, suitable for a TV/Film drama focused on a gang of youths living in an unequal world, or an advert for 90s throwback garms.
Smooth electronica. Cold synth chords with heavy delay, bubbling bass synth notes, 90s trip hop-style drums, glitchy beats, fuzzy electronics and icy synths. Steady groove throughout. New section to finish: effects-laden piano and spacey synths take over. Fade out. Laid-back, cool, calm and detached, perfect for a TV Documentary in a clinical setting…Nurses on Call, Daredevil Doctors, or a smooth corporate video.
