    I started this search off as Summer Mix 2, but thing veered a bit when checking out some of our new releases.  Figure its better for the genre integrity of my playlist to suffer a touch for the sake of fresh jams.

    • Crush On You.mp3 - synthy pop tune with a nice boom chick beat.  a quick drop leads into the anthemic chorus.  with a nice breakdown and break up this one feels confident, tables have turned and things are on the up and up. 
    • Summer Planet.mp3  - synth pop jam.  kicking off summer right.  synth drops out here and there for a nice bent guitar melody.
    • Bring It To You No Melody.mp3 - great building track with a strong slightly gritty guitar melody.  a drum machine, a xylophone and some synth round this into a trotting a light summer piece that keeps on building.
    • Wunderkind.mp3  - driving acoustic strummer with a glock and some humming leading it along.  slap your knee, enjoy the beach and watch the sun go down on the perfect day.
    • Digital dusk.mp3 - the name suites this simple digital but warm arpeggiation smearing.  a simple dub step beat minus the wobble with a touch of “indie”, I could see this being the sound track for a late night or a dreamy day. 
    • Milk.mp3  - arpeggiated guitar work leads this short and simple acoustic track into a thoughtful, caring and lovable place.  feels like a hug and a sunrise at the same time.
    • Harvest ensemble.mp3 - this twangy number is backed by a serious string section.  the bowed bass is amazing bringing up the low end.  definitely a versatile track.
    • Pink Tuxedo.mp3  - a modern throw back.  sounds like twisting on the beach with your long board….but just a bit off.  break beats and morphed filtering lend the kitschy tune a modern touch and a bit of underwaterness.
    • Demonic mutants.mp3 - drop break beat kicks this track into some weirdo mutant samples and turntablism.  I don’t know where to place this…but I like it.  Maybe for a space lowrider dj scene.  reminds me of Wave Twisters
    • Building A Robot.mp3  - this track came of our new CD that is coined “Themes for Slow Motion”.  I love the concept and thats exactly what it sounds like.  Give me a diving 808 kick any day of the week.

    Another round of library cuts that click.  A couple good ad tracks, couple movie oriented cues…and a couple who knows but I likes.

    Euro Stars.mp3 - a pop tune inline with what’s happening on the top 40s charts right now.  falls somewhere between Katie Perry and Justin Bieber…two references I been getting a surprising amount.  hiphop beat with a clean piano melody, backed with synth and strings making for a karaoke tune ready for singing at Whinnie’s.

     Networking.mp3 - light, catchy, toe tapper with a wholesome family feel yet staying contemporary and young with nice movement.

    I Belong.mp3 - straight ahead acoustic, feel good, inspirational track with a big end. actually this just came up in a search for a well established tech brand…and for the corp easy rock sound…this is a winner.

    Future Force.mp3 - the drawn out arab style intro slamed into some dirty south snare roles dropped into a clean hiphop beat paired with a simple but heavy bass come together for a perfect-driving-to-the-club track.  50 Cent + DJ Shadow at a corporate event.

    Cloud Dreamer (no vocal).mp3 - as the name suggests, a dreamy, etherial indie sound. contemplation, futuristic, polished with arpeggiated piano and sub drums with strummed acoustic and light kit to drop in.  nice swelling pace.  would be a perfect car ad.

    Throwing You Away (no vocal).mp3 - rough name, and rough sound.  Foo Fighters come to mind quickly with soaring guitars right in your face from the start.  good contemporary arena rock sound without the cheese.

    Flight of the Eagle.mp3 - this is a space country tune ha!  reminds me of my Asphodel days doing promo work for World Standard’s - ‘Country Gazet’.  I’m not sure where to sync this song…but I’ll know it when I see it.  Underwater Flaming Lips.  

    Wichita Moon.mp3 - another far left track that just works for me.  I have a 3min version that I listened to a couple times back to back.  also reminiscent of future, electronic country.  a chugging drum track with a synth flute dripping in verb.  the dawn of a new day on the range of mars.

    License to This - Apr 11’

    The first at bat of ‘Licence to This’.  The idea here is:  music libraries are huge, I want to make them a bit smaller.  These entries will be handfulls of tracks that I come across in my searches that shine a bit brighter as placement possibilities.  This also will be a place to for audio inspiration on direction….I hope.

    Other Side (No Vocals).mp3 - Electro drums, strings, synths and a melodic pianoin this indie electronic track.  The Postal Service comes to mind.  Starts light and moves into a touch of heart warming with a break down. 

    Cloud Dreamer (No Vocal 30).mp3 - Thoughtful, textured piano builds with claps, triumphant drums with a subtle but great double kick and glock. Slow motion, inspiring, indie, pop balad.  The Helio Sequence comes to mind.

    Sunshiny (No Melody).mp3 - Fun, skippy, piano piece strummer with bells, acoustic guitar, rhythm section, mandolin; positive, easy going, simple.  Feels like a family or household product ad. 

    Pin Drop.mp3 - Acoustic, percussive, childlike, lullaby theme with a classical feel.  Thoughtful, inspirational, heartwarming, accomplishment.

    Black Samba.mp3 - 1960s, surf, spaghetti western, ominous and uplifting builder with electric guitar lead.  The dust has settled and change is on it’s way….but we’re not there yet.  Quentin Tarantino, Ennio Morricone and Sergio Leone all come to mind with this one.

    The Grunk.mp3 - Hip Hop, chip tune, dirty lofi bone shaker with raspy bass and some hey’s!.  Its like real gangster game boys.  rolling your no brake bmx real slow, checking out the neighborhood, beeper and a gold chain.
