A Motown-inspired bass line leads into retro drums, spring reverb guitar, and horn swells. A groovy, retro, upbeat track. Great for sauntering down a city street, retro 70s underscore, and funky good times. Instrumental, RnB Music, Funk
A funky hip hop track. A looping funk guitar intro is followed by drums that make you want to get up and dance. Weird syncopated synth bass, wah wah guitar, and percussion round out the classic party vibe. Bonus: the full length track even loops! Instrumental, Hip Hop Music, Old School Rap & Hip Hop
The perfect lighthearted and positive advertising track. Acoustic guitars, toy piano, bass drum, tambourine, chimes, hand claps, and a wordless vocal hook - this track has it all.

The perfect action & horror film trailer. Ominous basses, drones, and light impacts fill the first half, building suspense. A dramatic sound design rise builds to a nearly unbearable point, stops abruptly, then drops into a crushing industrial electronic apocalypse. Delightfully sinister & evil. Instrumental, Science Fiction Music, Sci-Fi Action Intense

A dark hip hop track that grooves while conveying a lonely and yearning mood. Fat bass, pizzicato violin, loops, and acoustic guitars set the scene for a pensive nighttime walk. Danceable, serious, and a bit sad. Instrumental, Hip Hop Music, Hip Hop Instrumental
A pensive piano theme. Evokes feelings of longing, sentimentality, and resolution. Great for romance, bittersweet memory sequence, nostalgia, coming to terms with a situation, etc. Instrumental, Dramatic Music, Dramatic Solo Piano
An anthemic rock theme. Pounding drums and jangly guitars support a melody that will get stuck in your head. Straight out of a 90s teen drama, also a great reality/documentary theme. Anything needing a sense of youth, optimism, forward motion, or honest rock & roll will work well with this track. Instrumental, Rock Music, 1990s Rock
A muscular garage rock track. Dirty guitar riffs, roomy drums, and grungy bass lay down an irresistible groove. Later, the band holds things down while the guitars take off with a catchy upper-register hook. Swaggering, noisy, and fun. Instrumental, Sound-Alikes Music, Black Keys Soundalikes

What would the music sound like if you walked into an exclusive nightclub for robots? Probably like this.

A pummeling metal track. Relentless kick drum propels the song under monster guitar riffs and exploded-speaker bass. The interlude allows a brief respite with distant guitar and a drum solo, before launching back in with a blistering guitar lead. Extreme sports, car chases, wrestling, and bad guys. Instrumental, Rock Music, Heavy Metal
Classic Chicago style electric blues with lead guitar. The band lays back for the first cycle, building to a big climax on the repeat. Walking bass, 12/8 swing time, wailing bent strings - this track has all the ingredients. Perfect for Chicago cityscapes, classic Americana, and rural reality TV. Instrumental, Blues Music, Chicago Blues
A cold, austere, and slightly creepy track in the style of NIN. Drum machines and synths are joined by a chiming chromatic melody. The crushing chorus arrives as a surprise.
