Royksopp brings Star Wars electronic album to the next level with ‘Bounty Hunter’
It takes no less than the best to do justice to a franchise as popular as Star Wars. It’s only fitting the job of creating an original electronic album based off the films would go to one of the most important producers of the last few decades, Rick Rubin. Star Wars Headspace is simply brimming with talent and will be a force to be reckoned with when it’s released on February 19.
The new contribution from Royksopp builds off of releases from Baauer, Flying Lotus, and Rick Rubin and takes the album to a whole new level. With an aggressive bassline setting a fast pace for the fittingly named “Bounty Hunter,” Royksopp brings to life the intense, adventurous feeling associated with being a bounty hunter in the Star Wars universe. R2D2, C-3PO, and the late Greedo make cameos alongside the classic sounds of tie-fighters, blasters, and lightsabers.
