Trent Reznor and NIN/HTDA Collaborator Atticus Ross Score Facebook Film

Trent Reznor and longtime collaborator Atticus Ross have written the score for David Fincher's new film The Social Network, which is about the founding of Facebook. 

Reznor states, "I've always loved David's work but quite honestly I wondered what would draw him to tell that story. When I actually read the script and realized what he was up to, I said goodbye to that free time I had planned." He also mentions that he and Ross are currently in the process of "distilling the large amount of music we've written for this down to a satisfying record (or two). The film opens October 1 in the U.S. with the record likely available a couple of weeks ahead of that." Check out the trailer for the film above.

I'm pretty excited for this as all of Trent's music scores (Quake, Tetsuo) have been pretty amazing especially his latest ending track that was for Tetsuo: The Bullet Man which you can check out here.

[Download] El-P Mashes McCartney and Wings "Live and Let Die," For His Death Mix Of Bieber's "Baby"

Hell Has Officially Froze Over but in the greatest way possible. All the Bieliebers/Biebtards (whatever you wanna call them) are gonna fuckin flip their lids. El-P has gone back in forth with Bieber fans/cult (whatever you wanna call it) all week via his Twitter page but today with the help of XLR8R El put the final nail in the coffin with his Death Remix for Bieber's hit "Baby". I tip my hat to you sir.

Over the past week, we've been going back and forth with Definitive Jux label head and NY indie-rap icon El-P on Twitter about jokingly doing us a remix of Justin Bieber if we could find him an acappella. Well, guess what? We came through with the vocals, and El-P came through with a dope-ass opus—a remix of tween heartthrob The Bieb's "Baby." Mixing in a heavy dose of the Paul McCartney and Wings' classic "Live and Let Die," amongst other things, the results are pretty far from Bieber's wholesome original. (Via XLR8R)

[Watch] RJD2 Shows Off His Studio For Electric Independence

Electric Independence visits Philadelphia DJsician Ramble John “RJ” Krohn, better known as RJD2. RJ takes us for a tour of his multiple drum kits and massive modular synths. Despite the success of his solo material on Def Jux, producing for every independent rapper under the sun, and his recent, poppier work on XL Recordings, RJ insists that he has no chops. Yeah, he went to music school. Big deal. It’s not like going to school’s automatically going to give a guy an infusion of chops. He’s a messy 13 year-old experimenter and that’s how he likes it, shredders and virtuosos be damned. The proof is in the cobblers, which he generously cooked up for us and even dusted them with cinnamon!
