Chilled 90s instrumental. Summery synth samples, woozy and hazy to begin. Laid back 90s-style drums kick in, vinyl scratching added, bringing full 90s vibes. Subtle percussive vocal samples in the break with washy samples Beat drops again, remains to a blissed-out finish. Hopeful, warm, content and positive, a relaxed instrumental, prefect for bright, summery adverts – picture friends getting together, having a drink, or cruising around town in a beat-up car on a hot summer’s day.
Classic surf rock. Drum intro, followed by mysterious bass guitar, then wonky effects-laden surf guitar chords like the wavy sky at sunset.. Bass and drums underpin a plucked guitar section, joined by the vintage sound of Hammond organ and more distorted electric guitar chords. Wobbly surf guitar solo, then organ break over big chords. Another guitar solo to fade out. Cool, seductive and atmospheric, a retro nod to the music of Quentin Tarantino films. Pure Pulp Fiction, would suit an advert playing on cult film references, or involving smokin’ hot BBQ meats, or a TV homage to Twin Peaks-style dark Americana.
Vintage rock ‘n’ roll track. Drum intro, laid back sparse funk guitar, 60s-style keys. Female vocal chorus enters, singing subtle, dreamy ‘aaahs’. Strings enter over funky guitar, walking bass guitar and retro keyboards. A 1960s-esque psychedelic keyboard and string section before a rock ‘n’ roll guitar solo. Cool, laid back, upbeat and retro. Brings to mind ’60s London, as well as ’90s Britpop, groovy young folks swanning around swinging London. Perfect for an easy-going, fun advert or background music for a retro TV/Film sequence.
Snippet of dreamy 1940s big band music. Lush orchestral strings, tinkling piano, shuffling drums and a warm, vocal chorus swell effect. Warm, retro and uplifting, jazzy, old-fashioned music for swaying gently to, at the holidays, while dressed to the nines, in 1940s America.
Reggae track with electric guitar. Keys, bass, and drums holding down the mid-tempo rhythm, warm, retro electric guitar soloing, laid back brass interludes and a faraway male vocal chorus. Smooth, chilled, relaxed, easy vintage Rocksteady sound, would suit TV/Film/Doc usage for warm, soothing scenes or for adverts for laid back summer plans.
Laid back reggae/jazz instrumental. 1920s jazz meets reggae rhythms. Skanking piano, breezy drums, relaxed, smooth brass, reggae rhythms with vintage jazz mood and flourishes. Nostalgic, retro, relaxed and calming, would suit a 1920s-themed onscreen party or an advert for an easy-going, fun summer event.
A short burst of swinging jazz with walking bass, horn blasts and shuffling jazz drums. Fizzing with energy and hedonism, this Pink Panther-esque vintage track harks back to the jazz age but those rumbling drums would not be out of place on the Flintstones. Perfect for a short energetic advert or a goofy retro TV sequence.
Solo slide guitar track. Slow, expressive acoustic guitar in an improvised style. Free rhythm with a plodding feel, melodies emerging from the swampy atmosphere. Moved to higher register slides for a finish. Chilled, calm and nostalgic, a retro American-style blues track with heart and soul, perfect for factual documentaries, nature programmes or peaceful adverts.
