Atmospheric background mood music with piano, harp and strings. Based around a rolling, arpeggiated piano and harp theme, the first half remains simple and uncomplicated. Introducing legato and staccato strings with a pizzicato bass for the second half, and soft woodwinds later, adds a broader orchestral dynamic and interest whilst maintaining the dreamlike ambience and perpetual expression of rainfall.
An elegant and comforting acoustic track. A soft beat and arpeggiated guitar set a mood of peaceful tranquility, enhanced by piano and synth pads for a richer, warmer feel. Add in a rounded bass line for depth, and a lead guitar theme for focus, and you have a natural, organic piece that's well paced, reassuring and homely with a slight build up throughout.
Gently flowing track with soothing synth arps and elegant acoustic guitar. A soft beat provides a purposeful accompaniment to the atmospheric textures created by pads, strums and sprinkles of chiming keyboard patterns, but its the bouncing arpeggios that generate the movement throughout in this calmly inspirational ambient track.
Retro disco funk with a psychedelic edge. Funk bass over a disco beat is only the start - add in the wah wah guitar, lounge style vibraphone, organs and keyboards then sprinkle with futuristic synth effects to recreate a trippy groove right out of the seventies. Full of dance energy yet laid back enough to chill to, it creates a mystique and toe tapping vibe from another era.
Romantic easy listening piece for harp and piano. Melodic and meandering, it flows gently through the dynamic harp passages, echoed by piano and beautifully enhanced by soft strings. Gradually building with stronger drums and added layers of instrumentation, it's a simple story of togetherness and ease.
Blending a hip hop groove with a retro soul vibe and adding a jazz fusion guitar hookline gets us started, before adding in lazy, slurred trumpet themes and a retro hammond organ filling. Over the funk of the drum beat and the progressive chirping of the piano chords, it's a classy track with a real confident swagger.
