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.
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.
Bloopy electronic with feedback and sound effects. Opening synth phrase on repeat, creating a sense of propulsion. Noise and deep, grounding sound effects create a dark, murky atmosphere. Grows in volume and intensity before the noise drops out halfway through. The synth idea drops out and woozy, dreamlike synth drones are drowned out by harsh electronic feedback noise. Driving, hopeful and tense to begin with, then abstract, intense and overwhelming. Perfect for a sci-fi world or frightening documentary about the future of humankind.
Macho guitar and synth track. Chiming, fast-paced piano chords with muted percussion underpin the intro with a brash electric guitar melody joining above. Bass guitar introduces a fuller section with solid drums and more guitar. Harpsichord-like synth break imitates the piano chords, all instruments rejoin. Determined, driven and serious, the perfect no-nonsense track for an investigative documentary or neutral commercial.
Tense, bleepy electronics. Muted beats, bell-like synth melody and atmospheric electronics create a dark, futuristic, Eastern-inspired ambience. Break with cloudy electronic noise and harsh, knife-like swooshes. Back to the original zen garden beats with added urgency. Threatening, exotic and suspenseful, perfect track to accompany global espionage or a worrying high-tension situation on screen.
Clean electronic track with drones. Slow, sustained harsh electronic, sitar-like drones, high pitched and spiritual. The tune drops, bleepy, cute and warm, sounding ultra modern with a suggestion of African rhythms. Drones re-enter, causing an interesting clash of moods, bright and bubbly vs pensive and introspective. Beat break, beats return and drones intensify. Mysterious and other-wordly, new and ancient, sparkling electronics contract with harsher, earthier tones, at once like Mura Masa feat, Charli XCX and Indian classical music. Would suit a fresh advert or TV show, visuals both cutting edge and ethereal.
Contrasting electronic drone tracks. Electronic feedback, harsh waves of low frequency sound, an electronic wave-like pulse the only rhythm. Dark, uncomfortable and atmospheric, would suit a tense, disconcerting TV/Film sequence.
Drone 2 is more dreamlike, waves of ambient sound, cleansing, meditative, healing.
Brash electronic metal instrumental. Harsh effects-laden guitar intro, drums enters with a gritty bass line. Bubbling bass, drums and choppy guitar section. Dark, heavy effected guitar returns with moody drums and bass. Bullet-like drums and laser guitar of the intro returns. Relentless rhythmic section like a round of gunfire before a drum outro. Dark, visceral, threatening and dirty. Like an electronic Pantera, would suit a hard-as-nails, moody, bruising TV scene or advert for a damaging, no-nonsense product that would wipe the floor with the competition.
Hi-tension electronic chase track. Fleeting beats and synth lines, consistent drum ‘n’ bass beats, choppy strings lending intermittent bursts of tension and a chunky synth motif. Change to tense sustained synth, harsher beats, heavier strings before a full blown string section over electronic beats. A key change takes the tension up a notch, beat break before a quieter ending a glassy synth drones, cold strings and piano chords. High energy, full-throttle thriller turns reflective dronescape, as if our protagonist burst through a portal into another dimension. Perfect for a advert or tv sequence where danger is around every turn.
Busy Game 2 is steady, orchestral string-led suspense. A consistent level of threat and tension throughout.
Pulsating electronic thriller. Electronic horn-like sustained blasts, clanging sound FX, harsh drum machine. Ascending orchestral strings signal intriguing danger. A thoughtful, desolate electric guitar solo before a return to the relentless electronic sirens. Strings build again and electric guitar returns to finish. Automatic, inhuman, threatening and brash, the sound of a prison watchtower and the rhythmic plodding of prisoners boots, would suit a dramatic thriller on TV or Film.
