Bat Milk

Chilled jazzy reggae track. Slow piano skank and tip-toeing bass guitar intro with surf-style guitar effects and laid back drums. Brass plays a lyrical melody that sounds like a raised eyebrow, joined by subtle sustained keyboard chords. Saxophone takes a solo, accompanied by jazz drums and skanking guitar keeping the relaxed, mid-tempo beat. Back to melody on brass, before a keyboard solo like The Specials’ Ghost Town and a fade out. Thoughtful and searching, yet relaxed and easy-going, perfect for a Film/TV scene where the protagonist is on a solo journey of discovery in a new place or a strange, intriguing situation. Would also suit an advert for a new, exotic and surprisingly tasty food or beverage.

Lazy Susan

Summery dub reggae track with saxophone. Laid back skanking rhythms on electric guitar, steady drums, warm delay and reverb laden keys and guitar, sporadic saxophone melodies and whistle interludes. So laid back it’s horizontal…intricate, expertly balanced melodies and reggae rhythms for a sun-soaked advert or TV/Film scene.

Peaceful Place

A 90s-inspired-by-the-70s chill-out jazzy hip hop jam with drums, bass and keys. Drums and bass keep things steady as mellow repeated keyboard chords and a twinkling keyboard motif play on top. Cool, romantic, laid back and warm, this mellow jam would suit retro tv and film scenes where our character drives or struts through familiar streets.

Pagume

African jazz instrumental. Snaking double bass intro, joined by jazz drums, vibraphone, electric guitar and keyboard playing a rhythmic motif. Change of rhythm, horn blasts then saxophone melody, subtle African-jazz style, effects-heavy electric guitar solo, brass noise before vibraphone motif returns and all play until the finish. Intriguing, exotic and sensual, with hints of Mulatu Astatke and a little Fela Kuti influence, would suit a travel documentary or Film/TV scene evoking the spirit of a hot night in urban 1970s Africa.
