Chilled 80s-90s style R’n’B. Gentle piano intro with dreamy synth chords and natural bird sounds. Laid back beats join the wash of synth and sepia-hued horn samples hint at nostalgic lounge-jazz. Fresh and breezy with a colourful retro vibe, like Blood Orange’s version of 80s New York, edgy yet soft, perfect for chilled documentary sequences or cool adverts.
Meditative Arabic instrumental for autoharp. Repeated musical ideas are explored and improvised upon, meandering phrases and pauses allow the resonance of the instrument to ring out. Reflective, quiet and thoughtful, perfect for Arab documentaries or contemplative Film/TV.
Reflective electronic track. Thoughtful warped piano and laid back beats. Expands and grows sonically with vocal and string samples with jazz piano bringing elegance. 90s trip hop vibes, feeling like Massive Attack covering the Wallace Collection’s ‘Daydream’. Dreamy, peaceful and beautiful, chill background music for a documentary or a blissed out advert for summer pleasure.
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.
Synth soundscape. Dreamy, atmospheric synths and orchestral string-like sounds sing out over a vast, ambient wash of colourful sound. Serene, tranquil and inspiring, like meditative whale song, perfect peaceful background music for a mind-expanding nature documentary.
Gentle electronica. Soft synth intro with calming whooshes and ambient sounds. Peaceful synth melody embellished with sparkling effects, chugging and sweeping sounds and glitchy punctuation. Chilled, magical and sparkling, like a computer game dreamworld, nostalgic for the future, perfect for contemporary documentaries or fantasy Film/TV.
Violin instrumental in waltz time. Two violins play an Irish-style repeated folk melody, intertwining, bowing with a rough and ready quality. Plaintive, melancholy and mesmeric, a fusion of Irish and Middle Eastern tonality, perfect for a documentary about either part of the world, or a hypnotic onscreen dance of cultures.
Acoustic guitar and piano track with experimental elements. Gentle acoustic guitar punctuated with electronic noise and water sounds. Joined by warm piano and hints of playfully subtle saxophone, minor chords growing in intensity and turning to major for a hopeful finish. Mysterious, cheeky and subversive, brings to mind a magical woodland scene of trees going walkies while your back is turned. Perfect for TV/Film/Docs, pastoral settings and subtly powerful storytelling.
Bed version is more intimate, featuring more raw, sparse acoustic guitar, brings out the scratchy, barely-there violin and teasing background noise.
Atmospheric solo piano. Chiming, resonant piano chords with hazy delay. Dreamlike, serene and reflective, perfect for a sombre TV drama or serious, cautionary documentary about climate change or some impending disaster.
Alt versions available with added atmosphere and fizzling static.
Laid back funky R’n’B. Funk bass line intro with woozy synth chords and playful samples.
