Epic orchestral with dark beats. Choppy orchestral string intro, added bass strings provide build to a tight beat drop. Piercing string stabs bring tension over steady string melody and erratic beats. Tensions build to a dizzying level with added layers of competing strings. Frantic, driven and nerve-wracking, glam meets grit, 007 meets the Fast and the Furious, perfect soundtrack to a challenging onscreen quest.
Minimal trap. Cold synth melody over male vocal sample, first high-pitched, then repeated in a low register. Sparse beat drops. Quicker hi-hat beat added with finger-snap style beat. Dark, edgy and cool, perfect for an atmospheric advert for streetwear or a documentary about youth culture or TV drama.
Deep house 90s-style track. Heavy beats with intermittent colourful breathy synths. House synth chords and hi-hats build momentum, choral-like synths swell and more beats drop. Fun squeaks and playful high pitched synths add light-hearted texture. Sincere and thoughtful, yet fun and playful, perfect for TV sports coverage, an edgy urban documentary or a cool advert.
Dark, mysterious hip hop track. High-pitched synths like police sirens, and the real thing, over plodding synth melody. Fast-paced hi-hat trap beat enters, booming bassy synths populate the deep end. Comes down a notch with woodblock beats before the trap attack returns. Unsettling, nerve-wracking and tense, perfect soundtrack late-night inner-city subterfuge.
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.
Chilled techno track. 90s style synth chords, solid beats, heavy delay and woozy synth. High-pitched synth melody introduces more dynamic beats. Ambient yet melodic, with nods to psychedelia. Breezy and slightly exotic downbeat techno, imagine dancing ’til dawn on a beach in Thailand, perfect background music for a TV show or documentary focusing aspects of youth culture, or global travel.
Trap instrumental. Bouncy synth intro, doubled, Mura Masa-style during build. Trap beats added, laid back and chilled. Fat synths, hand claps and a high-pitched synth line take over. Back to laid back trap. Playful, summery yet slightly dark and urban, perfect for an advert for youth culture, fashion and partying, or for an urban Vice-style documentary or TV/Film drama.
Trap instrumental. High-pitched synth intro and build to the beat drop. Trap beats and a tense melodic synth part. Dark beats and electronic samples throughout. Urban, shadowy and cool, perfect for a TV or film scene following young people up to their usual hustle on the streets at night, or an advert referencing this youth culture.
Hip hop/ R’n’B instrumental. Single piano notes, high-pitched sound effects and a female vocal sample introduce a percussive synth melody. Restrained, sparse hip hop beats joined by high hat trap beats. Mid section with heavier, fuller dark beats and synth riff. Subtle, sparse and moody, perfect for a street scene on a TV drama or for a downbeat advert for urban clothing.
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.
