Despite some not so nice words from Busy P, the TRON: R3conf1gur3d remixes are coming fast and furious now. KCRW has the exclusive remix of “Fall” by M83 and Big Black Delta, hand-selected by the stations music director and TRON: Legacy music supervisor Jason Bentley. Here’s what Bentley said about the remix:
“M83’s remix of Daft Punk’s TRON: Legacy score is a brilliant interpretation of the scene where Kevin Flynn and his son Sam, along with Qorra, are hurtling toward what seems a certain demise in a runaway elevator shaft. It’s a pretty manic situation on screen, and Daft Punk’s music understandably has a panicked urgency.
One of the reasons I like this remix so much is that M83, and his collaborator Big Black Delta, are able to control the gathering chaos of this cue, and wrap it effortlessly with a melodic synth and lyric. You can definitely make out elements from the original score, but it’s a completely fresh take.
M83 uses the frenetic energy of the music to build anticipation for the next turn in his remix. It’s the interplay of these elements that makes the track so amazing and magnetic.”
