Eelke Kleijn remixes the theme from ‘The Hunger Games’
Eelke Kleijn has proved his studio credentials countless times for labels like Suara, Toolroom, and Spinnin’ Deep. Now the Dutch producer lends his production prowess to a remix of James Newton Howard’s “The Hanging Tree” featuring vocals from Jennifer Lawrence. The original song was composed for The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1, the third installment of The Hunger Games film series. Kleijn utilizes Lawrence’s chorus to provide a vocal foundation for a huge deep house production. While the catchy lyrical hook provides a mesmeric quality to the remix, the real magic comes from Eelke’s stellar instrumental. As typical of his work, the grooving drum kit and overarching cinematic elements culminate in a mean, ever-so-satisfying bassline.
