MOPM-029 Leisure Suite

Live a life of leisure and luxury while listening to the new release from Modus Operandi Production Music.

Allow yourself to drift away on a wave of rum punch and Xanax induced daydream haze. The ocean is where you belong, but today you’re stuck in the grind…

This is elevator music custom made for cubicle dreams, office romance, awkward waiting rooms, and retro lounge tales… ideal for travel site advertising, sunscreen commercials, tropical drink culture, and satirical DMV ads.

You preview and download music here.
