Glittering drum ‘n’ bass from outer space. Drum intro, joined by shimmering, anticipatory synths and a drum build, Beat drops with happy synth chords and hyperactive synth arpeggios. 8-bit style computer game music, like a magical, rollercoaster ride on rainbows across the Universe. Happy, colourful and cute with a hard edge from the pummelling beats, would suit a TV show aimed at teens or documentary looking at contemporary culture clashes.
Afro-cuban salsa played on guitar. Smooth, gentle acoustic guitar melodies and jazzy chords in salsa style with hints of flamenco ornamentation and woodblock percussion keeping the syncopated salsa beat. Chilled and laid back with a sensual intensity in the guitar melodies. Like Buena Vista Social Club, perfect for an advert or documentary with Spanish/Cuban/Latin American flavour.
Instrumental fusion of Greek, Turkish and Irish folk musics. Unpredictable time signatures, non-Western scales and rolling melodic phrases played on Cretan lyra and Middle Eastern saz, joined by violin and subtle percussion. Murky and intricate, growing in speed and intensity throughout. Sombre yet determined, delivered with passionate vehemence, perfect music for a global documentary or Film/TV scene representing Turkish or Middle Eastern culture.
Electronic club banger. Fades in to an epic build with synth hooks and an EDM beat. Vocal samples reference 90s Beastie Boys but warped and skewed to match the intense pace of the track. Insistent, aggressive and restless, a hyperactive rush of electronics, imagine a rapid-fire montage or experimental visual mash-up.
Tense drum ‘n’ bass track. Drum ‘n’ Bass breaks over woozy, neon synths. Strange modulations and cold electronics effects create an unnerving and hypnotic atmosphere. Intense, direct and single-minded with a contrasting softness from the synths, would suit a serious documentary about youth or urban issues, or a reality TV montage.
Ambient electronics with piano and strings. Bleepy electronic intro with subtle, chiming piano notes cutting through the soundscape. Strings creep in before a powerful, low-register strings swell overwhelms the track and radio samples add a layer of intensity and discord. Tense, ambient and emotional, dramatic background music for a hard-hitting documentary or uneasy TV drama.
Monstrous drum ‘n’ bass track. Sweeping electronics roar like baby dinosaurs, introduce descending arpeggiated synths before a drum’n’bass/trap hybrid beat lands. Intense, bold and aggressive, dark beats for a documentary or film sequence depicting a cacophonous alternate reality.
Turbo-trap track. Relentless beats and hyperactive synths make a cacophonous rollercoaster ride though a cartoon dimension, passing 808s and collecting snare beats like golden coins. Manic, intense and nerve-wracking, insanely upbeat electronics for a deranged advert or wild TV ride.
Dirty D’n’B track. Aggressive, in-your-face drum ‘n’ bass-style beats and wonky synths. Synth breaks with a 90s vibe ease the tension. Dark and murky with an intense propulsion, perfect for a tension-filled TV/Film sequence.
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.
