Señorita

Dark trap track. Snaking, ghostly synth melody lingers over trap beats. Latin-style accordion sound materialises and a reggaeton beats kick in bringing batida vibes before dropping back to a sparse beat. Vocal samples and frenetic beats hype up the build. Brings to mind Lisbon’s batida or the Latin-influenced electronics of Elysia Crampton, perfect electronic hybrid for an edgy documentary or mysterious advert.

Dreams

Chilled, sultry R’n’B. Bright, warm jazzy piano chord samples introduce a laid back beat. Mid-section pauses for calm with rain and thunder samples and sparse chords. A punchy string section with Latin vibes, sensual bass line and 80s electric guitar bring a surprising change. Finishes like a lullaby with gentle strings, soft beats and the warm scratch of vinyl. Retro and nostalgic with a fresh sound, perfect 80s Hip Hop/R’n’B throwback to add warmth and Nuyorican Soul to a TV scene or edgy documentary.

La Presencia de la Noche

Breezy latin jazz on electric guitar, bass and drums. Guitar sets the tone with moody broken chords, a pause, jazz drums, double bass and a catchy guitar riff enter, playing cool, seductive chorus/verse melody with a bossa nova feel. An almost psychedelic guitar solo explores the fretboard, grounded by jazz drums. Intense guitar, double bass riffs and busier drums add anticipation, before the original motif returns for the finale. Sultry, sexy, hot and passionate. Conjuring multiple genres and lands- travels through South America, adverts for laid-back holidays, or scenes of romance on a hot summer’s night.
