Caribana

Laid-back sample-heavy 90s-influenced jazzy hip hop. Samples including male vocals, a crowd of chatting revellers, hand drums, tambourine over an alternating fat synth chord. Opens up to include a bassy synth line and extra warm sunshine synths and gentle piano notes. Breezy, cool and laid back, perfect summer music for a chilled out party vibe, maybe on a rooftop in Brooklyn with a bunch of your beautiful stylish friends.

STFU

Bass-heavy R’n’B/trap instrumental track. Heavy bass synth underpins the track while siren-like synths cry out overhead over blobby and trap beats. Dark, edgy and confident, suitable for adverts or Film/TV scenes of stylish kids in the club, posing and chilling to this.

Cross (Justice Has Been Done)

Synth-heavy mid-pace electronic banger, reminiscent of early Daft Punk or Justice. A steady groove is augmented throughout the track, adding extra layers of fat synth and a retro organ sample. A drop in the mid-section builds to a warped version of the riff before a bigger build back to the main theme. Cool, determined, edgy and urban. Dark with flashes of neon light, this track struts, transforming the grey city streets into a technicolour catwalk. Perfect for fashion or sport adverts, or anything representing street or youth culture.

Overcome

Electronic slow jam with tense string sample, female vocal sample, repeated synth wah motif and underlying crunchy beats. Joined by hip hop beats in a tense, slow, build that swells slightly but keeps its cool. Dark, moody and sexy, this feels like the journey toward a decisive event, or a seductive affair. There is a sense of a hope toward the conclusion but we are left without any answers. This enigmatic, atmospheric track suggests a cool cityscape and the expanse of humanity within it.

Consonance Complement

Solo jazz piano. Short, jerky jazz piano chords. Dissonant piano clusters with hints of sweetness. Main theme repeated an octave higher. then more dissonance with sophisticated intermittent jazz piano soloing and low piano rumbles. Back to the uncomfortable clusters with their moments of sunshine. Serious in a playful way, erratic, difficult and jumpy, would suit a Woody Allen style Film/TV scene set among neurotic urban intellectuals or a stylish advert for a swish old-fashioned beverage.

I’m Mystified

Smooth lounge jazz number. Piano chords, double bass patter and soft drums begin, joined by wistful saxophone melody. Piano takes a dynamic solo accompanied by drums and more busy double bass. Back to emotional sax melody. Nostalgic, warm and fuzzy, yet cool and laid back, perfect for a romantic old-school TV/Film sequence, Casablanca-style star-crossed lovers staring sadly into their stylish cocktails, intoxicated by love.

Bed track has No Saxophone.
