New Production Music from ALIBI ‘Underscores’ the Incredible Range of Hip Hop
- Wednesday, Jun. 29, 2022
These 4 unique albums were created to sync with dialogue in a wide array of onscreen content.
Celebrating the incredible range of styles within hip hop, ALIBI’s newest release of production music is a fresh, authentic and functional collection of underscores. The four distinctive albums deliver everything from classic, old-school breakbeats and deep, introspective vibes to dark, melancholic cues and positive, upbeat sounds. ALIBI’s “Hip Hop Underscores” was created to sync with dialogue in a wide array of onscreen content – documentaries, reality TV, dramas, video games, pop culture shows, sports recaps, commercials and more.
- Hip Hop Underscores 1 (10 tracks, 304 audio files) - These classic, old-school-style breakbeats feature crackling vinyl drum loops, grooving upright and clean bass riffs and sparse trumpets and saxophones, which combine to create an effortlessly cool and confident sound. Perfectly suited for background usage, these underscores are designed to sit well behind dialogue or voiceovers, while still infusing the scene with old-school hip hop attitude and swagger. Listen
- Hip Hop Underscores 2 (12 tracks, 383 audio files) - Thoughtful, mysterious and even unsettling, these underscores are suitable for documentaries, reality TV, dramas and tension-building soundtracks. The minimal arrangements, which leave plenty of room for dialogue, are loaded with intrigue, a deep introspective vibe featuring pianos, resampled flutes, deep 808s and atmospheric synths. Listen
- Hip Hop Underscores 3 (12 tracks, 391 audio files) - With deep, pensive and at times melancholic vibes, these cues feature lo-fi degraded pianos, down-pitched clean guitars and deep booming subs, mostly leaning towards the dark and moody. You'll also find detailed drum arrangements, including trap hats and found-sound percussion. Perfect for dark and gritty dramas, reality TV, documentaries or anything that calls for deep and introspective hip hop. Listen
- Hip Hop Underscores 4 (10 tracks, 375 audio files) - This album brings us a much-needed positive and contemporary hip hop vibe, with instrumentation such as tumbis, flutes, mallets and bells, as well as ethereal vocal chops and lively synth bass & percussion interplay. While we hear this in commercials, it’s also well-suited to thought pieces, human interest documentaries and reality TV. It was designed to serve as an upbeat underscore for any youth-related content, including pop culture shows, sports recaps and video game selection screens. Listen
ALIBI’s previous underscores have been used in such recognized projects as hit teen drama “All American,” Netflix series “Formula 1: Drive to Survive” and NBA program “Basketball Stories: Sir Charles and The Doctor,” among many others.
