Star Wars Beat
Weekend Remix: Trip-Hopping In A Galaxy Far Away
Song: Star Wars Beat
Based On: Sound Bytes and Yoda’s Theme From Star Wars And The Empire Strikes Back
Original Composer: John Williams
With Star Wars on the brain thanks to it finding a new home at The Wonderful World Of Disney, I decided that this week’s remix needed to go to that familiar galaxy far away.
It’s a hyperspace jump to trip-hop territory as Bukson’s Star Wars Beat sounds like a lost child of 90’s Toonami openings. It’s hard not to listen to the song’s minimal vibe and not think of the cartoon block.
Monster bass rumbles and imposes itself like a fearsome Death Star. Having a sparse drum beat to give it direction, the song truly comes to life thanks to Bukson’s inclusion of the film’s familiar sound bytes and effects. Whether it’s the hum of lightsabers or the chopped playing of Yoda’s Theme, fans will feel right at home.

Until next weekend… May The Force Be With You And GO Party!
