Afro-cuban salsa played on guitar. Smooth, gentle acoustic guitar melodies and jazzy chords in salsa style with hints of flamenco ornamentation and woodblock percussion keeping the syncopated salsa beat. Chilled and laid back with a sensual intensity in the guitar melodies. Like Buena Vista Social Club, perfect for an advert or documentary with Spanish/Cuban/Latin American flavour.
Dark techno track. Throbbing beats, vocal samples and a wash of deep, heavy rumbling synths, underpin a high pitched synth hook, trap beats and an energetic build. In full swing with syncopated beats, synths and deep, playful vocal samples. Murky, menacing and brazen, strange Burial-style techno, perfect for a fashion film or edgy documentary.
Chilled electronica. Soft, atmospheric synth build becomes background synth drone under a slow, syncopated, tropical beat. Bright, colourful synth shines on top of an ambient base with growing beats and weightless synth lines reaching out like tree vines. Calm, peaceful and futuristic, a musical utopia, perfect for uplifting TV scenes or as an accompaniment to a soothing, hopeful advert for ethical fashion or worthy causes.
Vocal version features Molly Nilsson-style breathy female vocals – cool, calm and atmospheric with a hint of 90s nostalgia.
Classic swinging brass-led jazz track. Piano, shuffling drums, syncopated strummed guitar intro. Brass enters with a fast, energetic melody sounding like When The Saints Go Marching In, or a classic big band standard. Upbeat, happy, positive and warm, harking back to the jazz-age, would suit a modern Film/TV scene set in New Orleans, contrasting old and new. Would also suit a fun and friendly advert for a family product.
Bed version omits the Brass melodies.
Electronic synth track with female vocal samples. Looped sample of a nonchalant female vocal, repeated percussive synth notes lay down the syncopated beat, subtle hi-hat, before a drop to a downbeat chunky synth section. Breaks into more expressive female vocal and upbeat wonky synth part before the original sample returns. Relaxed, summery, cool and romantic, would suit a visual featuring emotional milennials lying around, on their phones, waiting for those magic letters to appear…ily
Melodic orchestral string and drum build. Choppy orchestral strings play a bright melodic motif. Syncopated beats join, growing in volume and complexity. Break before lively orchestral strings and anticipatory beats kick off again. Builds to a summery climax. Positive, hopeful, happy and sincere, like an orchestral version of Dario G’s ‘Sunchyme’, euphoric and fun, perfect for emotional reality TV moments or excitable documentary TV scenes.
