Escape From New York Re-score by Mogi

Posted by Jakub

He’s back! after completely re-scoring the original Tron back in 2011 Mogi Grumbles has finished his whole re-score of Escape From New York, below is the movie re-cut and above is the album, enjoy! HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.

I Heard You Were Dead is an original re-score of the movie Escape from New York (1981), composed by Mogi Grumbles, musical alias of Ann Arbor, MI native Alex Taam. In 2011, Taam asked the question, “What if Daft Punk had composed the soundtrack to the original Tron, and not its sequel?” The answer was “End of Line.” Two years later, he turned his attention to John Carpenter’s cult classic, this time posing a much simpler question, “Why not?” After amassing a collection of synths authentic to the period, Taam was inspired to compose something that was both classic and modern. Operation Black Light is sleek and stealthy, propelled by a bassline that whirs like a Blackhawk helicopter blade. Mac 10 is the sound of bombast, a grenade that’s just gone off with shrapnel bouncing everywhere. This re-cut of the film, by editor Christian Silbereis features the Mogi Grumbles re-score.

PREMIERE: Yumi Zouma (Kaito Remix)

Yumi Zouma_1

One of my favorite producers for years has been Kompakt’s Kaito, he always made real trance and not even tainted it with quirky stereotypes of what the genre is seen as.

Cascine found a very fitting pairing for Yumi Zouma, it gives Kaito the lush pieces to make this stunning remix come together, HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.

Support direct – VINYL / DIGITAL

Yumi Zouma are Charlie Ryder, Kim Pflaum and Josh Burgess – 3 friends from New Zealand living between New York (Josh), Paris (Charlie) and NZ (Kim)

Panda Bear + Ford + Slava + Romeau

Finally we get a glimpse of what the Panda Bear record might sound like. Soo happy he’s going back to his roots, no rush just joy.

Joel Ford hits us with a huge dance cut for the summer, mystical and pure class.

Haven’t met a person yet that dislikes Fort Romeau, probably never will.

Slava has floated out a few EP’s this new one entitled “Comma Sutra” hasn’t relied on boomy bass and infinite studders which puts a smile back on my face.

Domino Recordings has a special album on their hands from Wild Beasts. One of the tracks on the LP Sweet Spot has been on repeat this weekend, dynamic and sensual but not too soft to keep a crowd from having fun with it.

The Field offered his remix duties and came up with his classic chord changing emotional journey.

Patten + Small Black + Avery + D5

Patten is new to the Warp label, his LP is soon to be out. If you dig around on his insanely good website you’ll find free edits that he does, the best one in my opinion was this multi-fi edit of Burial.

I. am. thrilled. for. this. Small. Black. LP. Its like a slowed down Peter Gabriel instrumental!

Daniel Avery did up a perfect remix for Factory Floor, its something you’d hope someone would turn in for you, he leaves the original genre and gives you a beauty, DFA should be overwhelmingly happy.

I have been digging through almost every Delsin release this past week, just one by one and this was a stand out gem from D5, melting digital clouds.
