Keep Loving Me
Dark electronica with vocal sample refrain. Sparse, bleepy synth intro with watery delay effects. ‘Keep on lovin’ me’ female vocal sample repeated rhythmically over a determined, striding slow breakbeat. Tender yet menacing synths play out a hooky melody on top. Unsettling and tense with a terrifying passion, obsessive yearning to suit a dramatic TV sequence or fashion story.
Hip hop track with orchestral strings. Melancholy string intro. Minimal beats before a bass drop. Deep bass synth mines the underbelly, trap beats up top and church-like bell sample and choral vocal samples add to the eerie atmosphere.

Emotional, bleak and desolate, introspective soundscape to suit a reflective TV scene, an epic nature documentary or romantic film scene.
Woozy, dark electronica. Vertigo-inducing synths wobble and swerve over bleeps, whirrs and the deepest synth bass, sounding like an alien trying to sing in slow motion. Disconcerting, sinister and strange, would suit a menacing movie scene or a dark alley onscreen encounter…in the future.
World fusion with beats. Samples depicting a fight give way to male choral vocal samples over a snaking violin line and global beats.

Murky hip hop with electric guitar. Plucked fuzzy electric guitar riff, over a heavier, more abrasive riff.

Insistent, unyielding and slightly melancholy with a hint of insouciance, would suit dark TV moments or a tense investigative documentary.
Underwater Theme 02

Determined, driven and nostalgic, perfect for a youth TV drama in an urban setting, or as a dynamic accompaniment to an electronics or automobile advert.
