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.

Endlessly Haydn Eggs

Quirky woodwind instrumental with experimental vocal effects. Sparse cello intro joined by pizzicato strings in jerky counterpoint. Woodwind enters with breaths used to percussive effect.

Roots (Suite)

Acoustic guitar and piano track with experimental elements. Gentle acoustic guitar punctuated with electronic noise and water sounds. Joined by warm piano and hints of playfully subtle saxophone, minor chords growing in intensity and turning to major for a hopeful finish.

Perfect for TV/Film/Docs, pastoral settings and subtly powerful storytelling.

Bed version is more intimate, featuring more raw, sparse acoustic guitar, brings out the scratchy, barely-there violin and teasing background noise.

Get Your Groove On

Upbeat 80s/90s-style pop track. Hand-clap intro before bouncy beats bust in with a fat synth melody.

Slow, emotive piano track with violin and clarinet. Sparse, atmospheric piano, chords resonating, single piano notes ringing out above.

The Militant Upcycle

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.
