The Militant Upcycle

Bloopy, psychedelic electronic track. Gentle, reverb-laden synth patterns, repeated, morphing into a noisier sound, growing more intense. A wash of fuzzy, atmospheric noise drowns out the synth melodies. Hints of My Bloody Valentine, Stereolab, Broadcast and Air, sepia-tinted electronics mingle with harsh noise in a satisfying contrast. Warm, gentle, searching and plodding to begin with, more intense, powerful and expansive as the track progresses. Perfect atmospheric film or documentary music, retro-futuristic and edgy, reminiscent of the Lost in Translation soundtrack.

The Second Turning of the Wheel

Other-worldly electronics. Bleeps, feedback, buzzing, noise, vinyl scratching under the needle, sound effects and atmospheric drones all intermingle to create an ambient electronic patchwork. The soundscape brightens with more melodic drones and reflective synth lines introduced. Thoughtful, introspective, yet vast and expansive, a world turning inside and out. Suitable for an intense, mind-expanding documentary, or for suspenseful or darkly dramatic TV moments.

A New Day

Uplifting piano track with orchestral strings and hints of shoegaze. Simple piano intro, building anticipation, orchestral strings swell in the background, plodding bass guitar percussion then soaring strings and quickening percussion build to a retro, shoegaze, slacker grunge section with orchestral strings. Elbow meets The Jesus and Mary Chain. Powerful yet chilled, romantic and hopeful, a dreamy, inspirational build to suit a closing scene on screen or a heartwarming advert.

Wildlife

Euphoric electronica. Steady dance beats introduce the track with bubbling synth effects, building up with colourful synth chords to the bouncy melodic climax. A quiet mid-section, before anticipatory chords and driving beats lead to another banger of a chorus. High-energy, punchy and contemporary with a retro feel, reminiscent of Calvin Harris’s ‘This Is What You Came For’, with bold build ups and euphoric choruses, perfect for a glossy reality TV montage sequence – imagine the Love Islanders hitting the tiles – or a silly, fun advert.

Nexus

Bouncy synth track. Fat arpeggiated synths bouncing around a wash of synths, becoming more punctuated by percussive blasts. A break then an 80s synth melody is added before an unexpected ambient end. Fun, jaunty and hopeful, like a jolly retro robot on a bouncy castle, perfect for happy adverts or as an upbeat soundtrack to a documentary.

Eclectic Movements

Atmospheric electronic track. Synth drones with metallic electronics, fleeting sound effects and glassy beats with snatches of retro 60s keyboard melodies on top. Ends with Broadcast-like crackly, pulsating synth drone. Psychedelic, chilled and immersive, slightly serious and introspective, would suit a mind-bending scene in a Film/Doc/TV show.

Eclipse

Breezy electronic track. Fat 90s synths ring out over a steady dance beat. Tinkling electronic effects create texture, the pitch moves up and discords ring out. Counter melody on synth and bouncier beats bring a laid back energy. Fun, chilled and happy, a stress-free 90s throwback, kind of cheesy but fun, a sophisticated Vengaboys meets Pet Shop Boys.

It’s Just What I Think

Nostalgic soundtrack to kids playtime. Naive intro on warm, retro keys. Joined by sound effects, tinkling cans and crunching paper. Vocal ‘Ooohs’ enter with uplifting drums, interrupted by spoken word samples. A steady drum beat, keys and percussive tin can groove settles in, sounding like a microscopic recording of ants in work in the backyard. A new synth-led section brings fantasy, twinkling lights and gurgling sound effects, before a return to the melody with added percussive effects. Innocent, hopeful and nostalgic, suitable for a heartwarming advert looking at families, kids and the joys of childhood.

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.

Lust for Groove

Upbeat, jangly rock n roll track. Solid indie drums and bass introduce blues rock guitar and keys with some guitar soloing. Brazen, confident and fun, cleaned-up shambolic indie rock, a lite version of Artic Monkeys, Babyshambles and Jet.
