Daft Punk’s already electro-happy Tron Legacy soundtrack is being remixed by some of the top players in today’s electronic scene. With the likes of The Glitch Mob, Paul Oakenfold, Moby, The Crystal Method and, of course, Pretty Lights, this should put a new spark to this Legacy.
I was a little disappointed in some of the more popular cuts, but Pretty Lights, Oakenfold and Teddybears stood out even above their originals. I may be featuring Pretty Lights on this ’cause I gotta super-big crush on him – and he does his portion well (when does he not?) – but Oakenfold & Teddybears suprised me with rich vibes & a powerhouse bass that may even top PL… well, at least competes with it.
*** Prop to Com Truise, a few surprises in there as well.
Solar Sailor (Pretty Lights Remix)
C.L.U. (Paul Oakenfold Remix)
Oakenfold’s buildup/breakdown flies over the rest. If PL wasn’t on the list, Oakenfold would be my man.
