I got a phone call about a year ago, asking if I would score "a little Indonesian action movie." It had a lot of promise, and was starting to get noticed in the independent film circles where it was being shown. The movie was made on a small budget with a lot of heart, and featured the Indonesian martial art form, Silat. The guy on the other line said, "The director and I really like your remixes and Fort Minor stuff; we were wondering if you'd be interested in doing something like that."
The remixes and FM album were things I've done in my spare time, for fun. And I had always wanted to do a film score. So I said yes.
The Raid: Redemption has gone on to win awards at film festivals all over the world, and has gotten amazing reviews from critics and fans alike. It features all-new music that I wrote with Joe Trapanese (TRON, Daft Punk, M83), and songs I made with Chino Moreno (Deftones, †††) and Get Busy Committee (produced by Scoop DeVille).
I appreciate all your support on this project, and thank you for listening to the soundtrack. The film is on iTunes now; check it out HERE.
