Atmospheric, brooding electronica. Warm, pulsating synth intro joined by chilled r’n’b/trap beats and breathy female vocal samples. Laid back, calm and dreamy, perfect for a breezy onscreen moment or glamorous advert.
Sombre urban electronica. Dark synth lines, pulsating beats and hand clap effects, joined by epic synth chords and broken phrases of a mournful piano melody. Downbeat, melancholy and uneasy, would suit an earnest TV scene or documentary exploring a troubling issue.
Short, driving synth track. Chiming, repetitive synth riff with heavy delay, pause then bouncy, bassy, arpeggiated synth build. Insistent, inspiring and assured, a colourful, neon ride through a nocturnal retro-future, perfect for a propulsive advert, or wistful, upbeat Tron-like TV scene.
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.
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.
Chilled 80s-90s style R’n’B. Gentle piano intro with dreamy synth chords and natural bird sounds. Laid back beats join the wash of synth and sepia-hued horn samples hint at nostalgic lounge-jazz. Fresh and breezy with a colourful retro vibe, like Blood Orange’s version of 80s New York, edgy yet soft, perfect for chilled documentary sequences or cool adverts.
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.
Saz or baglama instrumental. Mid-tempo Arabic saz solo, a stringed instrument like a lute or guitar, resembling the Arabic oud, sounding like English folk or American country at times, with a strong Middle Eastern sound. Determined and energetic yet thoughtful and reflective, would suit documentary or TV/Film centered around the Middle East, matching the lively pace of life.
Driving electronic track. Spacey synth swooping under a bouncy synth hook. Chunky synth rolls in with an expansive melody. Solid beats and atmospheric vocal samples maintain the determined vibe. Upbeat and lively with a sense of purpose, sounding like a slowed-down Santigold, perfect for a flashy advert for futuristic electronics, or for a cool TV segment.
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.
