Children’s Music Composition

kids-musicWe  managed to combine hard work with a lot of fun recently, composing  children’s music for a client who is offering a  new concept in kid’s dance classes.
We were given only the lyrics to work from and we had  to compose original  kid’s pop-music which was fun, catchy and rhythmically correct for the children to dance to.
Check out these rough mixes :-):

Annoyingly, we had a minor database fault a few months back and we thought everything was resolved but this track was missing missing from some of the tables.
It’s one of my all time favourite action tracks too and I remember it selling within 5 minutes of uploading it.
I’ll be adding more of Michael’s great music shortly.

New Urban, Hip Hop Grooves with a Touch of Class

urban-hip-hop-musicFollowing the huge popularity of our sophisticated Hip Hop track “Urban Symphony” , we’re adding more  tracks to the collection.

Each track is a mixture of authentic hip hop beats and production combined with the sophistication of a classical string section. Also, each track contains multiple edits, loops and stings.

Street Walk is an edgy track with  a great, boomy  kick drum and authentic urban loops. The strings gives it a classy edge, with the catchy melody on top.

Urban Class is a more classically influenced track, especially towards the end when you hear a full on baroque style accompaniment from the strings.

You seem to like them and we’re having fun with these, so they’ll be more on the way.

🙂

Jon Cooper Goes Acoustic

acoustic-musicWe’ve just added some wonderful new tracks from our electronic music composer Jon Cooper and he’s just gone all acoustic on us!

And it’s brilliant.

He’s applied his usual, wonderful minimalist approach and innate musical taste to these 3 acoustic tracks:

Dreamers combines a mellow, laid back beauty and a modern quirky approach to instrumentation. Acoustic guitar, glockenspiel and accordion, arranged with great confidence.

On a Hill combines the acoustic guitar with an ethereal synthesizer but manages to create a warm, human feeling throughout.

You Complete Me is a beautiful, warm, touching, solo acoustic guitar track.

Also, we’ve currently got about 4GB of great music waiting to be added………and a brand new site on the way!
