Over the last couple months, I've been filming a short film about a hitman. Right now I'm in the process of selecting music for the soundtrack. The only track I've got so far is Smoke & Mirrors by RJD2. I wanted to know if anyone can recommend music that has a similar feel. Basically I'm looking for beats with a cinematic, library feel to them that are a little on the obscure side. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

You might just wanna look into some of Blockheads work, especially some of the older and more obscure of
his works...
I automatically thought of his album »Music By Cavelight«, but maybe it's too non-obscure to fully work with your soundtrack - I don't know...
But definately look into some of Blockheads work, very moody įla RJD2.

Peace and moodyness! :lol:

Sixtoo: Chewing On Glass & Other Miracle Cures (this is completely underrated as well as everything he puts out period)

El-P: Cold Vein Instrumentals, Fantastic Damage Instrumentals

Boards of Canada: Geogaddi (electronic with down-tempo beats)

Try David Axelrod - Songs of Experience, its well cinematic. Also Harmonic 33 - Music for Film, Television and Radio vol.1 is pretty good.
