Mysterious electronic synth track. Repetitive synth intro, bouncy and arpeggiated, with spooky synth whooshes. New section of spookier synth riff, twinkling percussive bells and strings straight out of an old James Bond film, building anticipation. Sustained synth section with shuffling percussion becomes a dynamic, rhythmic synth section. Like Santigold but weird and wonky, topsy-turvy. Plodding yet classy, a real mystery. Intriguing and beguiling, would suit a provocative advert, a flashy product, sexy and stylish but a hint of danger.
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.
Intense acoustic guitar instrumental. Dark, pensive intro growing in speed and intricacy. Quick, repetitive strumming creates a drone effect. Hints of Spanish/Latin American guitar, Western movie soundtracks, as well as Middle-Eastern sounds. Suspenseful, tense and brooding, moving like a seductive dance, would suit onscreen tension on Film/TV or a sombre documentary about seedy goings-on and modern-day cowboys.
Downbeat indie instrumental. Brooding bass guitar, subtle drums, repetitive riffs, floaty harp-like electric guitar with flighty synth cutting through. Slow, steady, thoughtful and moody, with a hint of hope, perfect background music for a pensive indie film moment, or for a tempting TV show trailer.
Bollywood -style track with a contemporary R’n’B edge. A snaking sitar line is followed by tablas and an electronic beat. A flute melody joins before moving to a more intense, dramatic orchestral string section. Vocal samples and a change of rhythm with jazzy hip hop drums, before going back to the original sitar motif. Seductive, mysterious, intense and edgy, would suit adverts for products reflecting diverse city environments where the traditional and the contemporary mingle; or a TV/Film sequence referencing an edgy version of the Bollywood aesthetic.
A rich, hypnotic Middle Eastern-sounding track. A sounding bell then repeating drums rhythms, a violin-like instrument plays a snaking seductive melody. Occasional dulcimer-like trills add intrigue. Hypnotic, mysterious, intriguing, seductive, intense. Film/TV sequence featuring an intense, mesmerising experience for our characters, out of their comfort zone, exploring the dark beauty of an unfamiliar land.
Sultry late night jazz. Skulking double bass, romantic celeste melody, lazy, loping jazz drums. Smooth saxophone solos over the laid back foundation. Moody, seductive, late night jazz, would suit a slow-paced advert or retro, nostalgic TV/Film scene where our characters’ eyes meet across a half-empty bar…a lovesick detective and a sassy divorcee…both tired and jaded…but have they given up on love?
Bed track features Drums and Double Bass Only.
Breezy latin jazz on electric guitar, bass and drums. Guitar sets the tone with moody broken chords, a pause, jazz drums, double bass and a catchy guitar riff enter, playing cool, seductive chorus/verse melody with a bossa nova feel. An almost psychedelic guitar solo explores the fretboard, grounded by jazz drums. Intense guitar, double bass riffs and busier drums add anticipation, before the original motif returns for the finale. Sultry, sexy, hot and passionate. Conjuring multiple genres and lands- travels through South America, adverts for laid-back holidays, or scenes of romance on a hot summer’s night.
