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.

My Way

Retro hip hop/R’n’B track. Piano intro, heavily nostalgic with a warm, fuzzy atmosphere, soon joined by lush strings on the same melody. Like a prelude to the ‘real’ hip hop track that never kicks in, only subtle shakers and sparse clicks bring the track to modern times. Calm, peaceful and dreamlike, a 1960s wonderland with lush, analog-style production, perfect for a throwback on screen or as a romantic aside in a documentary or film scene.
