Truly You

Romantic jazz track with saxophone. Soaring, emotional saxophone soloing over a gentle bed of double bass, drums and softly-played piano chords. Electric guitar takes a laid back solo, accompanied by double bass and shuffling drums. Sax returns, over increasingly emotive piano 7th chords. Introspective, wistful and nostalgic, a retro, heartbroken jazz club standard, perfect for a TV/Film/Doc scene full of romantic longing.

Bed track features piano chords, double bass and percussion only.

Smoke Up

Bouncy electronic track with vocal samples. ‘ID please’ vocal sample, male vocal harmony sample, 90s R ‘n’ B vibes, bouncy synth, 90s West Coast hip hop-style samples and the sound of a creaking bed…Sexy, breezy and summery, like Boyz II Men over an 80s synth, a 90s throwback perfect for sun-soaked adverts or TV scenes.

Sunset on the Beach

Classic surf rock. Drum intro, followed by mysterious bass guitar, then wonky effects-laden surf guitar chords like the wavy sky at sunset.. Bass and drums underpin a plucked guitar section, joined by the vintage sound of Hammond organ and more distorted electric guitar chords. Wobbly surf guitar solo, then organ break over big chords. Another guitar solo to fade out. Cool, seductive and atmospheric, a retro nod to the music of Quentin Tarantino films. Pure Pulp Fiction, would suit an advert playing on cult film references, or involving smokin’ hot BBQ meats, or a TV homage to Twin Peaks-style dark Americana.

Dresden

Bouncy synth track. Driving rhythm underscores a bright, triumphant synth melody on top. Another synth line is added, the track awash with sustained synths. A synth break and back to the full melody. Motorik, upbeat and positive, perfect for mid-paced driving visuals. 80s synthpop with hints of indie and a warm glow of nostalgia, also a perfect match for retro TV/Film/Doc scenes.

Bostlingen

Bouncy electronic synth track. Opens with a pulsating electronic beat, joined by a bright synth arpeggio. Sustained synth chords above shift slowly from major to minor. A wonky synth solos above over the steady groove. Epic, hopeful and motorik. Perfect for a car advert or retro TV sequence. Like a Krautrock Chariots of Fire, beautifully 80s, the perfect track for punching the air in slow motion.

Spinner

European-style jazz instrumental. Spanish guitar soloing furiously over a bed of walking double bass, percussion and guitar chords. Accordion takes over with a playful solo. Guitar returns, accordion provides chordal accompaniment. Fun, warm, uplifting and positive, laid back jazzy high jinks for adverts or TV/Docs/Film evoking the retro swinging technicolour of Umbrellas of Cherbourg.

Bed track chordal guitar, double bass and drums only.

Front Street

Vintage rock ‘n’ roll track. Drum intro, laid back sparse funk guitar, 60s-style keys. Female vocal chorus enters, singing subtle, dreamy ‘aaahs’. Strings enter over funky guitar, walking bass guitar and retro keyboards. A 1960s-esque psychedelic keyboard and string section before a rock ‘n’ roll guitar solo. Cool, laid back, upbeat and retro. Brings to mind ’60s London, as well as ’90s Britpop, groovy young folks swanning around swinging London. Perfect for an easy-going, fun advert or background music for a retro TV/Film sequence.

Vice

Imagine Beverly Hill’s Cop mixed with a bit of “It was acceptable in the 80s” and this is what you get. Unashamedly bold drums joined by rhythmic synth stabs and bass, then for me it really comes into it’s own around one minute in, when you realise that with the introduction of electric guitar that we are actually pretty funky up in here. Elements of fast cut establishing sequences, 80s montage scenes, dance scenes, retro stuff, and some sort of comedy scene where everyone is running around a big house without everyone knowing.

Dominoes

Funky guitar instrumental. Wocka wocka guitar, funky slap bass and 90s keys, with retro samples and electronic effects. Woozy, laid back and upbeat, the 70s as imagined in the 90s, a stoner on a spacehopper. Fun slacker music for easy going adverts or 90s throwback TV.
