Different Rock

Serious rock/pop with beats. Slow build with bold guitars and trap beats. Subtle beats underpins wailing electric guitar and a hooky piano part, sounding like a more chilled version of System of a Down. Cocky, confident and determined, an assured rock track to suit a decisive TV moment or flashy, aspirational car advert.

Club Inferno

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.

Lost in the Grid

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.

Born to Win

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.

The Slip Up

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.

Zomorud

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.

La Peru

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.

Cumbus Long Neck

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.

Ticking Time

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.
