Brooding electronic track with strings. Slow, melancholy yet anticipatory horn-like synth intro, joined by choppy strings joining at rhythmic intervals. Bass echoes the synth riff and added nonchalant drum beats bring attitude and bell-like flourishes take the edge off. Dark, moody with hints of brightness, perfect for a cool advert with a suggestion of tension, or for a reality TV scene where decisions must be made.
Chilled 80s-90s style R’n’B. Gentle piano intro with dreamy synth chords and natural bird sounds. Laid back beats join the wash of synth and sepia-hued horn samples hint at nostalgic lounge-jazz. Fresh and breezy with a colourful retro vibe, like Blood Orange’s version of 80s New York, edgy yet soft, perfect for chilled documentary sequences or cool adverts.
Groovy 70s funk. Cheesy horn blasts, funky beats, vinyl scratching samples, zany saxophone interludes and jazz piano in your face in an explosion of wacky, swirling 70s groove. Fun, upbeat and happy, retro 70s New York vibes with a cheesy edge, imagine as a TV theme tune for a NYC cop show about 2 crazy cops getting into some hilarious scrapes, or for an advert promising to inject excitement into family mealtimes.
Classic swinging brass-led jazz track. Piano, shuffling drums, syncopated strummed guitar intro. Brass enters with a fast, energetic melody sounding like When The Saints Go Marching In, or a classic big band standard. Upbeat, happy, positive and warm, harking back to the jazz-age, would suit a modern Film/TV scene set in New Orleans, contrasting old and new. Would also suit a fun and friendly advert for a family product.
Bed version omits the Brass melodies.
Country-jazz instrumental. Dynamic walking double bass, quickly strummed acoustic guitar, classic jazz drums, frenetic saxophone soloing. Horn is introduced, duelling brass solos. Fun, positive and warm, ramshackle jazz straight out of a 1920s speakeasy, would suit a retro Film/TV scene, a lush jazz-age garden party, or an advert for a laid-back but jazzy product.
Bed version features No Brass.
Extremely tense orchestral string tremolos with horn and clarinet. Choppy, fast-moving string part creates anticipation and introduces sparse phrases of woozy horns and woodwind. Frightening, mysterious and suspenseful, experimental orchestral track to suit a threatening TV/Film scene or creepy documentary.
