The new Tron soundtrack is being released on December 7th, as we all know which was produced by Daft Punk. Before everyone goes wild, they were commissioned (although completely willingly and enthusiastic) to do a soundtrack for a movie. So everyone expecting full on French House madness will be utterly disappointed. I’m expecting a fantastic soundtrack, definitely not Daft Punk album #4. I know, it’s totally a given but some people just don’t get it reading some comments around the net. Didn’t include any originals, but the NTEIBINT remix of Derezzed.
Digitalism released a new EP Blitz which is fantastic because I haven’t really heard anything big from them since really Idealism, although the remixes from Moshi Moshi were great. The track Blitz really brings me back to the good old days. I hope this means we should be expecting an album from them soon.
The last track is actually from the good old days, the Bag Raiders remix of Cut Copy‘s Far Away, but with a nice little twist for you guys and future posts to come. I saw this track show up recently on Hype and was surprised I never posted it before. I am a huge Cut Copy fan and a even bigger Bag Raiders fan. The twist? Bag Raiders released their debut self titled album this month. What?! Yeah I know, I’ve yet to listen to it but it’s on the top of my to-do list.
Daft Punk – Derezzed (Tron Legacy Soundtrack – NTEIBINT Remix)
Digitalism – Blitz
Cut Copy – Far Away (Bag Raiders Remix)
I’ve been rather disappointed with the music coming out lately. It’s almost like a musical slump, just not satisfied. This is partially a week-end update as I missed that post last week and also just some stuff that was mailed to me. First is Le Matos remix of We Have Band, I really can’t get enough of that sound Le Matos uses. Last remix he made with Coeur de Pirate had a similar sound, and I totally mean that in the best way possible. Lovin’ it. Second off is the Hey Champ remix of Passion Pit, interesting combo there, very groovy … retro? Almost more out of the 70’s sounds catalog than anything. And lastly, the Cut Copy remix of The Juan Maclean‘s Happy House, which for the longest time I thought he was saying “lunch meat into space” and thought it was kind of funny. Launch me into space just doesn’t have the same ring. Great ending to the track.
We Have Band – Honey Trap (Le Matos Remix)
Passion Pit – Little Secrets (Hey Champ Remix)
