The soundtrack to the George Clooney version of Solaris is brilliant.  Very understated but utterly atmospheric.  Great movie too.

I thought the original TRON was gash too. This is going to take a miracle, quite frankly.


The original is dated now. The storyline was very weak. But this is supposed to go in a totally different direction. So here's hoping.

I'm not saying Daft Punk are their EQUALS but as for the film score itself and yes I mean Orchestral pieces as the majority of it is, i'm saying the quality in sheer drama of pieces and musical emotion it certainly got me like those that John williams and James Horner have previously won awards for. Obviously it would be naive for me to call them equals but that wasn't my point. My point was that if you're a fan of Williams or Horner then you're going to love these. Granted no awards have come to light for this but I assure you for a soundtrack that had the films editing moulded to the soundtrack (which i think if i'm right is the first time ever that's been done), then it certainly speaks volumes in my opinion. But please listen to the score and if I'm wrong then by all means slag me off to high heaven for my comments. But I don't think you will. I think you'll be as pleased with it as i was.

I'll give it a listen. I've always found Daft Punk's output to be a complete non event personally (with Da Funkbeing an exception), but I'll listen with an open mind and picture your sweet, cherubic smiling face just willing me to like it bilder.


I can live in hope lol :0)

Its not.

Well please correct me. Or maybe I've got my facts wrong on this issue as i'm sure I've read that there's something unique about the way the soundtrack was integrated with the film.

The influence being it's them that wrote it you mean?

You're an enigma to me bilder. Keep posting.

For Daft Punk's first foray into this line of work of BIG SCREEN film scoring! If you've heard it then you'll know what I'm saying if not then just don't comment cos my views are my opinions.

As for the influence side Daft Punk as a product or a musical duo produce totally different stuff than sat Thomas Bangalter on his own does. Or as he does as 'Stardust' or than Guy-Manuel does with Crydamoure and his Le Knight Club guise. My reference refers to the work Daft Punk do as DAFT PUNK! But again as i said this IS NOT a Daft Punk album it's their interpretation of a film score so yes it is going to be influenced by a Daft Punk sound but I was making people aware not to expect a load of tracks similar to 'Homework' or 'Discovery'. A valuable insight i think to anyone who has not yet heard it.

There are far too many pedantic people on here at times that have to scrutinise every comment that goes on. It's a forum to discuss topics so discuss it, don't disect it for the amusement of trying to humiliate people's comments!

Snap - 1999 was a cracking year.

Looking forward to the OST & the film .... never was really that interested in the Original if I am honest, but want to take my 8-year old Son to this one wink


Really gathering pace on this now. Seen some new footage of a disc fight which looks awesome and heard the soundtrack in it's entirety and I got to say Daft Punk nailed it in a big way! There's only two 'dance' numbers on there 'Derezzed' and 'The End Of The Line' Both very very good. The other tracks are orchestral pieces which i know some Daft Punk fans will turn their noses up at but remember this is a FILM SCORE! Not an album! But as far as film scores go this up there with James Horner and John Williams and as it's their first one too I'm more than a little impressed. There's a definite Daft Punk influence in there and an almost darkness, an eerieness that we've heard on Bangalter's 'Outrage' and his remix of 'Signature' and there's a clear electronic stamp running parallel with the orchestra but as soundtracks go it's definately up there with the best I've heard! Well done Guy and Thomas....

I know Damo & Tom Turner. I also met you a few times when I was a budding DJ sending in my trance tapes to every club on the planet, lol.

Yeah well you know i know Damo (I was engaged to his sister) and Tom I've dj'd with loads. i think I came to a few of your nights at The Attic?? You used to send me tapes all the time and you know what mate they were really good. But the boss was a prude and shirked away from anything he didn't know! Was really hard work.

Yeah saw this a bit ago. Gimmick at best definately. What happens if some fool spills a drink on it? Or it gets that hot in there that condensation forms on it??? Can't see it being used in a club environment really.

Very very good choice. Still play it now. to be honest I have since I got it lol

The guy is a genius. I've heard him play 3 times at WHp in Manchester and the last time was before Sasha & Digweed played last year. The guy has such an ear for picking random tunes and messing with them in such a way it's sonically amazing to hear.

For me the best young dj the Uk has produced for a long time.

WHP has to be the best venue the UK has seen in years, I love going to that place!

I saw Sasha there a couple of years back (Invol2ver tour) and it was just some underground car park. Rubbish.

Digweed a few years before was in a big square (cold) warehouse. Excellent.

Where was it?

Still in the car park which is a great venue but for me over the last 12 months has lost it's sparkle.

Cool thanks. i'm just wondering if it's just marked up wrong on Beatport's website and it is actually the Bedrock Vocal and not the original mix.

Beats all that 'one more time' shite.

Totally hear what you're saying. Always loved 'Rollin and Scratchin' but 'Discovery' took them to a new level don't you think? Yeah it's mainstream and in many respects it's borderline cheese but they're huge and let's be fair it's not done their credibility any harm has it?

Couldn't stand the first film, all style & absolutely no substance & I'm expecting exactly the same from this. The effects do look great but that doesn't make a great film. I have however, heard 5 tracks from the soundtrack & I am looking forward to getting hold of that.

I loved the first film. Grew up watching it. Storyline is a little thin but it is a classic! But anyhow this film is supposed to be totally different. Obviously fundamentally the general synopsis has to liink with the first but the direction of the film is totally different that's why Daft Punk agreed to commit to it! I think it's gonna be the film of the year alongside 'Inception'

New Mixmag has a huge article on Daft Punk this month. If like me there's any fans (which i reckon everyone on here should be) then it's something to pick up. As hype is now gathering to the release of the soundtrack on December 6th in the UK I for one am very very excited....

I'm one of a lucky few I think to see the French duo perform without helmets years ago at the first Homelands in the Daft Arena with Roger Sanchez, DJ Sneak et al. And from that moment i was hooked on the two. 5 years since any new material has surfaced and a double CD for the soundtrack is well overdue I think.

1. Fabric 54 - Damian Lazarus (Could have picked any by Fabric this year! Totally unmatched in the comps market in my opinion)

2. James Zabiela's Essential Mix 03/04/10 - He's an innovator and the way he sets up mixes is beyond a typical gathering of tracks. Inspirational Mix

3. Riva Starr or Christian Smith (Certainly Riva Starr at the start of this year and back end of 2009)

4. Charlie May & Barry Jamieson 'Homecoming' (COMA Mix) or Tensnake 'Coma Cat'

5. Bedrock (Now this might get some stick but there is no other label that i have bought or seen more from than Bedrock this year. The label this year has led the way in being diverse and pushing new talent through without suffering on quality)

I'm amazed this never got a longer thread as most people on here are involved in the clubbing industry or just go to clubs and generally afterhours are standard are they not?? lol

Anyway there are some awesome chillout style albums out and here's my recomendations:

Sasha 'Airdrawndagger' / 'Involver'
Tensnake 'In The house' - NuDisco and not technically chilout but I've stuck this on afterhours and it's awesome to listen to.
Oakenfold's Essential Mix from 1997 kicks off with Natural Born Chillers
DJ Shadow 'Entroducing...
BT 'This Binary Universe'
Nathan Fake 'Drowning In A Sea of Love'

Tracks wise:

Cry Sisco 'Afrodizziact'
Corrina Joseph 'Lonely'
Rae & Christian 'Spellbound'
Lamb 'Gorecki'
Sneaker Pimps 'Six Underground' (Perfecto Mix)
Depeche Mode 'Useless' (Kruder & Dorfmeister Mix)
BT 'The Road To Lostwithiel'
Way Out West 'Blue'

To be honest I could go on and on
