Illumina

Quietly epic cinematic orchestral string build with electric guitar and piano. Sustained orchestral strings over hand drum percussion. Warm synth notes and tinkling piano melody bring lightness and joyful anticipation. Angelic choral vocal samples break in before a change to a harder synth section. The sunshine breaks through the clouds with electric guitar cutting through the wash of strings and choral vocals. Piano rejoins with a simple, hopeful melodic pattern. Powerful and moving, yet gentle and thoughtful, Elbow-like emotional build to suit an inspiring advert or a triumphant onscreen finale.

Blue Haze

Light electronic rock track. 90s-style wavy electric guitar chords over a rhythmic guitar intro, Heavy guitar pedal effects on the guitar melody, drowsy and psychedelic with grungy slacker vibes. The drums give a hint of slinky 80s nostalgia. Moody, sexy and slightly dark and tortured, like every character in My So-Called Life, perfect for 90s throwback adverts or documentaries, and trippy montages.

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 Big Score

Experimental, tropical instrumental with brass and percussion. Wavy brass and woodwind and sparse frenetic double bass, oud-like guitar with shakers, drums and orchestral percussion begin a 2-part musical journey in Casablanca, or some other city of intigue and passion. Marching band snare gives way to tropicalia on shakers, bass, acoustic guitar and wah wah effects. All the colour and life of a tropical jungle dances sweatily together with brass holding the Latin-style melody. Retro, intriguing yet sexy and ambient, suited to an ambitious Film/Doc or TV show set in sensual, sunny climes or an atmospheric summery advert for a passion-inducing indulgence.

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.

A Beautiful Day

Cheesy summer synths. Shimmering sustained synths, delicate snare beats and whooshing synth effects introduce a low key synth melody. A quieter passage of sparkling arpeggiated synths, bouncy keys and washed out beats creates a breezy atmosphere before the melody returns more energetic and full of conviction. Sexy, seductive and summery, sun, sea and synths, perfect Balearic muzak for adverts, or comedic TV montages – like Alan Partridge slow-motion Baywatch jogging into the sunset.
