Meditative oud instrumental with male vocals. Upbeat, melodic oud, resembling sitar, repeating melodic ideas with sparse hand drums and intermittent guttural vocals on top, reminiscent of North Indian Classical Music. Plodding yet rhythmic and driving with an improvisatory feel, perfect for a Film/TV scene set in a vast, unfolding Middle Eastern landscape.
Clean electronic track with drones. Slow, sustained harsh electronic, sitar-like drones, high pitched and spiritual. The tune drops, bleepy, cute and warm, sounding ultra modern with a suggestion of African rhythms. Drones re-enter, causing an interesting clash of moods, bright and bubbly vs pensive and introspective. Beat break, beats return and drones intensify. Mysterious and other-wordly, new and ancient, sparkling electronics contract with harsher, earthier tones, at once like Mura Masa feat, Charli XCX and Indian classical music. Would suit a fresh advert or TV show, visuals both cutting edge and ethereal.
Slow-paced acoustic guitar track with drones. Dramatic, sparse acoustic guitar intro, breaks into a melancholy, reflective melody, accompanied by a sitar-like string drone. Introspective, meditative and pensive, bringing to mind the desolate landscapes of Western films, as well as Indian classical music and Spanish guitar, a global wanderer to suit a tense or thoughtful Film/TV moment.
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.
Electronic trip hop instrumental track. Water sounds, electronic lasers, organ-like drone snatches. Naive riff on cutesy synth turns is joined by trip hop beats, shuffling drums and synthesised string interludes. Fleeting sitar samples and scratchy electronics punctuate the beat. Electronic/drone break before the riff and frantic electronics, like vinyl-scratching, rejoin until the end. Cool, laid-back and urban, a throwback to the baggy trouser days of the 90s, with a hint of Morcheeba. Would suit adverts for clothing or lifestyle products, or as background music for an urban drama or documentary.
Contemplative guitar and drone track. Acoustic guitar plucking a sparse melody above a subtle sitar-like drone. Simple, thoughtful, meditative and atmospheric, perfect for a slow-moving TV/Doc scene over a beautiful vista.
