Pulsating electronic track. Fat bassy synth, flashes of synth and electronic glitches start, joined by a regular, throbbing beat, more beats then layers of extra fat synth build the atmospheric tension. Tense, dark and foreboding, full of dark energy, imagine a tense action scene or a nail-biting TV moment.
Atmospheric slide and acoustic guitar track. Slow beginning with slide guitar joined by fast broken chords on acoustic guitar building tension with guitar sound affects. A melodic motif on acoustic guitar builds up, joined by slide for the ending. Tense, sombre and dramatic, anticipation builds throughout, like the lead-up to a duel in a Western movie. Perfect for a documentary or Film/TV sequence. You can almost hear the crunch of gravel underfoot and the glint of desert sun on spurs.
Atmospheric synth instrumental. Layers of echoing synth. Fat, warm, 80s reverb-laden sound. Sombre orchestral string effect, chiming piano and glacial beats gives a serious, driving feeling. Intriguing, mysterious and strange, Twin Peaks-style ambience crossed with Enya and the Crimewatch theme tune, would suit a dark TV drama or as tension-building background music to an eye-opening documentary.
Wistful lounge-jazz number. Yearning, saxophone, louche piano, gentle shuffling drums and calm, plodding double bass. Dreamy, nostalgic and romantic and relaxed, suitable for a retro TV/Film scene, a first dance between new lovers, or reminiscing on a first love, now a distant memory. A throw-back to the love stories of old black-and-white films.
Bed track has no sax, more subtle, calm and chilled.
Romantic jazz instrumental. Breathy saxophone melody, softly strummed guitar and gentle piano chords, joined by a selection of strings playing the undulating melodic idea in canon. Saxophone plays out before melting away to sultry breathiness again for the wistful mid-section. Strings wail, clarinet cuts through as the track builds in intensity before a quiet, reduced ending. Beautiful, sensual, intense and thoughtful, like the soulful East African jazz of Étiopiques. Would suit a highly charged, tender, romantic moment on TV/Film, or a reflective advert for something very special.
Grungey rock ‘n’ roll instrumental track. Rage Against the machine-style guitar riff, steady drums, followed by a Nirvana-style more downbeat riff with more prominent bassline, ending on the original high-octane guitar section. Angry, powerful, loud and proud, classic 90s rock perfect for energetic TV interludes, adverts for flaming whopper burgers, or for a powerful film scene representing a challenging character in defiance of authority.
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.
Sample-heavy Eastern-inspired track. Complex beats, jerky string samples, fleeting Asian flute samples, slippery snippets of a dynamic Middle Eastern-style melody with Indian percussion. Serious, intense and changeable, a mix of moods and cultures suiting a food/travel advert or TV/Film scene or documentary exploring the complex history of a colourful place.
Punchy urban electronic track. Dramatic 90s-inspired catchy synth strings, bouncy beats, unforgiving electric guitar and church music choral samples. Serious, forceful and full of conviction, a modern mash up of guitar and beats perfect for an youth advert or for a heightened moment in a contemporary TV show.
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.
