Atticus Ross, the Grammy-nominated producer and musician has written his first feature film score for the Hughes Brothers’ much-anticipated post-apocalyptic adventure, The Book of Eli. Atticus has previously collaborated with Trent Reznor on four Nine Inch Nails albums and produced the Perry Farrell single “Go All the Way (Into the Twilight)” for the hit film Twilight.
Ross’ music is a unique hybrid score of electronic and organic elements; writing with his wife (Claudia Sarne) and brother (Leopold Ross), the basic tracks were recorded at his studio in Los Angeles before departing to London where it was finished in Abbey Road Studios with a full 80-piece orchestra. The soundtrack was released as a standard CD, a deluxe version featuring three bonus tracks, and an exclusive iTunes package featuring a remix of “Panoramic” by TV on the Radio’s Dave Sitek.

If this single and the Jack Splash mixtape, Heir to the Throne, are any indication of what to expect from King of the Beats, we're in for a treat.

Four Tet aka Kieran Hebden is set to release his fifth studio album, There Is Love In You, his first full-length in almost five years. It features the epic nine minute journey "Love Cry," a loopy track that evolves and unravels around a simple vocal sample and thumping drumbeat. Now remixes have emerged from the acclaimed talent coming from South East London: Joy Orbison rolls out a floating electronic piece with skippy percussion, while Roska's remix is all at once dark, brooding, fierce and funky.
Four Tet will be touring in support of his much-anticipated new album, out January 26th on 2xLP, CD and digital.
