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.
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.
EDM instrumental with trap beats. Chipmunk vocal samples introduce a fat EDM synth build with trap beats and female spoken word samples. Gives way to flowing harp samples before a dark trap beat section. Repeats. Melodic bell-like beat section to end. Tense, moody and brash, a slightly threatening build suited to a trailer for an action-packed thriller of a TV show, or a brooding urban advert for streetwear.
Full bodied laid back hip hop, I can see California lens flare, sunny cruising past beautiful people, feels urban but crisp with bold beats, lush synth chords and intricate DJ scratching. Clean, fresh and cool, with a sense of power and style. Would work in promos, car related programmes, or any stylish showcase segment. Like Summertime by Jazzy Jeff and the Fresh Prince, but without Will Smith trying to rap and much much cooler. Highlight is the massive chorus section at 1:16 – full of sweet synth impact.
Bouncy electronic track with vocal samples. ‘ID please’ vocal sample, male vocal harmony sample, 90s R ‘n’ B vibes, bouncy synth, 90s West Coast hip hop-style samples and the sound of a creaking bed…Sexy, breezy and summery, like Boyz II Men over an 80s synth, a 90s throwback perfect for sun-soaked adverts or TV scenes.
Laid-back sample-heavy 90s-influenced jazzy hip hop. Samples including male vocals, a crowd of chatting revellers, hand drums, tambourine over an alternating fat synth chord. Opens up to include a bassy synth line and extra warm sunshine synths and gentle piano notes. Breezy, cool and laid back, perfect summer music for a chilled out party vibe, maybe on a rooftop in Brooklyn with a bunch of your beautiful stylish friends.
Downbeat trip/hip hop track. Starts with a moody electric guitar riff, heavy with reverb and delay, dark and brooding. Electronic samples and complex beats are added, before single piano notes add to the sombre mood. Melancholy, serious, slightly dark with flashes of futuristic silver, reminiscent of Massive Attack and downbeat, emotional 90s films.
Bollywood -style track with a contemporary R’n’B edge. A snaking sitar line is followed by tablas and an electronic beat. A flute melody joins before moving to a more intense, dramatic orchestral string section. Vocal samples and a change of rhythm with jazzy hip hop drums, before going back to the original sitar motif. Seductive, mysterious, intense and edgy, would suit adverts for products reflecting diverse city environments where the traditional and the contemporary mingle; or a TV/Film sequence referencing an edgy version of the Bollywood aesthetic.
