Right before anyone starts, to be honest, this film was not one of the best, the storyline was not great, and Geoff Bridges and Olivia Wilde were the only thing holding everything together. But visually this film was amazing and seeing it in 3D made it look mindblowingly sharp allowing you to feel like you were inside the Tron universe.
But that’s enough about the film, let’s get to the point. When you are looking for a group to make a soundtrack for a film set in a futuristic universe where people drive around on light-bikes and have cities made of glass, only one act comes to mind: Daft Punk. Comprised by French musicians Guy-Manuel de Homem-Christo and Thomas Bangalter, they have been solely responsible for bringing house music from the 90s disaster zone right into the 21st Century.
Not afraid to push boundaries and divide opinion, these two music legends have created an original soundtrack that fits perfectly into a film of this genre. With contrasting sounds and incredibly produced loops this soundtrack delivers on every level adding tension when needed but also energy and excitement.
Their track “Derezzed” is a stand-out for me on this soundtrack as it mashes up and twists sounds from 8bit video games to create something fresh and new. Overall this soundtrack should go down as one of the all time greats even through the film itself does lack the killer punch.
Daft Punk’s live shows are something to behold, so be sure to check them out if they have any dates near you, you can find out all you need to know here.
