Way to Go

Summery pop instrumental. Bright synths, claps and chugging percussion introduce the happy, soaring chorus and simple melodies. Layers of warm synth build and envelop, creating a glowing ball of sunshine and fake tan. Happy, hopeful and fun, perfect music for a summer advert, optimistic TV drama, or Love Island-style sunset montage.

A to the K

Full bodied laid back hip hop, I can see California lens flare, sunny cruising past beautiful people, feels urban but crisp with bold beats, lush synth chords and intricate DJ scratching. Clean, fresh and cool, with a sense of power and style. Would work in promos, car related programmes, or any stylish showcase segment. Like Summertime by Jazzy Jeff and the Fresh Prince, but without Will Smith trying to rap and much much cooler. Highlight is the massive chorus section at 1:16 – full of sweet synth impact.

New Elevator

Electronic synth track. Breezy synth intro with chunky tropical beats underneath. Chilled beats and a laid back lounge vibe. Synth build to a funkier section, more prominent funk bass guitar and catchy synth motif. Fresh, colourful and bright, synth sunshine, calming background music in a luxury elevator or lounging in a flashy spa. “Been around the world and ay-ay-ay…” Lisa Stansfield lounging in early 90s ibiza, perfect for smooth and cheesy adverts and similar TV.

Spirit Winds and Prairie Grass

Pastoral folk on solo acoustic guitar. Quiet, thoughtful chordal motifs and finger-picking guitar. Moving from minor to major like the sun breaking through the clouds. Gentle, introspective and tentative, yet hopeful, perfect for a spare, downbeat TV/Doc sequence or a relaxed advert.

Bea

Instrumental classical/jazz track. Strings in conversation, playing melodic cycles. Warm, resonant piano enter, joined by marimba flourishes and a deep, soothing strings melody. Jazz piano chords, and the melody repeated in various registers. Marimba solo over sustained strings and a meandering improv section in the last minute. Earthy, romantic and enveloping, a calming jazz number, reminiscent of sprawling Ethiopian jazz rooted by a strong melody, as well as the gentle, rich Gymnopédie melody. Suitable for a very laid back advert or a pastoral Film/TV sequence set under a beaming winter sun.

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.

Summer Jam

Electric guitar track with R ‘n’ B beats. Summery guitar riff, shimmering percussion, fun cowbell, laid back trap beats, fuller drums, then piano outro. Positive, hopeful, young and cool, a retro teen-film vibe with an urban update, perfect for cool summer adverts or a modern coming-of-age road movie.

Lydia

Relaxed jazz/lounge instrumental. Easy breezy intro of soothing retro keys, plodding double bass and shuffling drums, Then woozy, effects-laden guitar, psychedelic keys and warm, lazy brass. Grows in volume and power to an enveloping brass section. Calm, chilled, expansive and hypnotising, a jazzy dart of tranquillising calm for TV/Film/adverts.

Toshiro

Reggae track with electric guitar. Keys, bass, and drums holding down the mid-tempo rhythm, warm, retro electric guitar soloing, laid back brass interludes and a faraway male vocal chorus. Smooth, chilled, relaxed, easy vintage Rocksteady sound, would suit TV/Film/Doc usage for warm, soothing scenes or for adverts for laid back summer plans.

Lazy Susan

Summery dub reggae track with saxophone. Laid back skanking rhythms on electric guitar, steady drums, warm delay and reverb laden keys and guitar, sporadic saxophone melodies and whistle interludes. So laid back it’s horizontal…intricate, expertly balanced melodies and reggae rhythms for a sun-soaked advert or TV/Film scene.
