Dark, shadowy electronic track. Intro fades in from darkness, wavy synths growing louder with a whistle-like synth build about to boil over. Builds again before the womps fade to nothing. Bassy, dank and murky with fizzing, feedback-like effects, would suit an edgy documentary or urban advert.
Deep, dark, drum ‘n’ bass. Tinny, delicate fast beat intro, joined by D’n’B beats and a chilling build on glacial synths. Full beat drops, womps over a harsh electronic beat sample , glassy and hard. Laser beats and vocal samples shoot through, building a tense, claustrophobic atmosphere. Dark, threatening and strange, a nightmarish soundscape, like a post-apocalyptic world of malfunctioning technology gone rogue.
Glittering drum ‘n’ bass from outer space. Drum intro, joined by shimmering, anticipatory synths and a drum build, Beat drops with happy synth chords and hyperactive synth arpeggios. 8-bit style computer game music, like a magical, rollercoaster ride on rainbows across the Universe. Happy, colourful and cute with a hard edge from the pummelling beats, would suit a TV show aimed at teens or documentary looking at contemporary culture clashes.
Irish-Cretan slip-jig. Fusion of Irish and Cretan styles, Irish slip jig form played on saz (stringed instrument like an oud or mandolin), Cretan lyra and bendir percussion lending an Eastern Mediterranean and modal Arabic sound to the uptempo dance tune. Mysterious, tense and energetic; a curious, lively dance of different cultures with a singular, hypnotic sound.
Instrumental fusion of Greek, Turkish and Irish folk musics. Unpredictable time signatures, non-Western scales and rolling melodic phrases played on Cretan lyra and Middle Eastern saz, joined by violin and subtle percussion. Murky and intricate, growing in speed and intensity throughout. Sombre yet determined, delivered with passionate vehemence, perfect music for a global documentary or Film/TV scene representing Turkish or Middle Eastern culture.
Peruvian instrumental with charango and cajón. Stringed, guitar-like charango plays a melancholy melodic hook, while a second charango provides intricate accompaniment. Gentle percussion from cajón gives a subtle rhythmic flavour while supporting the melody. Emotional, passionate yet quiet and restrained, reminiscent of Manu Chao, full of romantic anticipation to suit a sizzling onscreen lovers’ dance or for a travel documentary or advert with a Latin influence.
Improvisation on Turkish cumbus, stringed, oud-like instrument. Free-form improviation with runs, ornamentation, repetition and silent pauses, growing slightly faster and more intricate towards the end. Mysterious, intimate and sparse, Turkish and Middle Eastern sounds perfect for a documentary about the region or to accompany a vast, deserted landscape onscreen.
Uplifting pop/rock track. Quiet drum and guitar intro building to including expressive vocal ‘Aahs’ and ‘Ohs’ with heavier drums. Mid section is more experimental, reverb-laden vocal samples reminiscent of FKA Twigs’s ‘Water Me’. Overall more like Coldplay, expansive, emotional and open. Would suit a TV/Doc scene of emotional closure, or a heartwarming advert.
Electronic track with piano. Insistent drums build anticipation to a thoughtful, melancholy piano hook with dynamic vocal samples and spacey synths bending melodies. Introspective and romantic with experimental sonic leanings, would suit a thought-provoking advert or emotional TV scene.
Dark trap track. Snaking, ghostly synth melody lingers over trap beats. Latin-style accordion sound materialises and a reggaeton beats kick in bringing batida vibes before dropping back to a sparse beat. Vocal samples and frenetic beats hype up the build. Brings to mind Lisbon’s batida or the Latin-influenced electronics of Elysia Crampton, perfect electronic hybrid for an edgy documentary or mysterious advert.
