A to the K

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.

Smoke Up

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.

Caribana

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.

Reminiscing

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 Love

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.

Heading Up

Bouncy electronic pop track. Fat summery synths, electronic beats and male vocal sample ‘Hey’s set the upbeat tone. Vinyl-scratching samples, more bouncy synths and hip hop beats create a fun but edgy summery vibe. Determined, cool and a bit flashy, a slight cheesy Calvin Harris synth feel, perfect for brash adverts or Hollyoaks-style TV interludes.

Friends or Nah

A breezy R ‘n’ B instrumental. Upbeat but chill with jazz piano flourishes, wah synth lines, sunny West Coast delay-heavy samples and trap beats. Euphoric in a low key way, this track feels like driving around LA, smoking out the window, sun high in the sky, enjoying life. Perfect for young brands and blissed out TV/Film scenes.

ATA

Hard hitting commercial hip hop, 30 seconds of intensity featuring searing lead synth lines, atmospheric vocals and low bouncing beats. Perfect for an advert about, I dunno, something electronic, something new and innovative but street? It’s glitchy, crunchy, edgy, urban, somehow european.

Straight Outta London

Electronic, hip hop instrumental track with string samples. String samples, dramatic piano chords, crunchy beats, police sirens, ‘ID please’ vocal sample, joined by more samples and a 90s West Coast woozy theremin-like synth line. Tense, urban and highly strung, would suit a tense cop drama or documentary exploring street culture.

Ripped Off

A sample-heavy 90s hip hop-inspired track. Starting with a low rumble sound effect, the boom bap beat drops, then brass section samples, orchestral-style string samples, and spacey electronic samples complete the 90s pastiche. Intrigue, glamour and danger are evoked but in a goofy way- hip hop James Bond.
