Fear of the future gets concentrated and distilled in futuristic movies—they always seem apocalyptic—why is that?—and SmartSound Futuristic Royalty Free Music delivers the goods for electronic scariness and power.

In the way that most all trailers amp up the drama of any coming attraction, Cybershark from Massive Edge Orchestral pulls out all the stops in the Studio Orchestra and Synthesizer’s repertoire to paint a fierce, extreme picture of the future. Video Games are another venue for the intense chaotic stylings of this track.

Commercials that march to a different drummer could do worse than call on Ultra Pop’s Analog Dance. This concentrated track has something for everyone, from future rock kitsch (with variations like Gnarly, Funky, and Get Ready—where’s Austin Powers when we need him?) to electronic machine gun fire to pizzicato strings.
