V/A - The Matrix: Music from the Motion Picture (2xLP - Red/Black "Squiddy" Vinyl)
Limited Red & Black "Squiddy" Vinyl Edition. limited to 420 copies.
Every decade or so a science fiction film comes along that captures the Zeitgeist and simultaneously casts a searchlight into the murk of what’s to come. Such a film was The Matrix. Released in 1999 to a public already grappling with huge technological change and subject to Y2K hysteria whipped up by the media, The Matrix wove such au courant tropes as Japanese animé, Hong Kong martial arts films, cyperpunk sci-fi, and hacker hero worship into a tale of druggy paranoia whose vision of a grim future marked with universal surveillance and pathological interconnectedness actually looks less paranoid by the day.
And its soundtrack was similarly forward-looking. Instead of offering the blues-based, heavy metal rock that might have populated the score had the movie been made a decade before, The Matrix tapped into the new, breakbeat electronic sounds making inroads into popular music. The result was a propulsive audio ride perfectly mated to the film’s cinematographic “bullet time” innovations, a doom-laden, neck-snapping blend of stoner metal, hip hop and electronica.
Now, Real Gone Music is proud to present the original soundtrack to The Matrix in a limited red and black “squiddy” vinyl edition. The 2-LP set comes in a gatefold package featuring stills from the original film production and is limited to 420 copies…like Morpheus says, this is your last chance!
