Matrix Resurrections soundtrack and remixes released on vinyl from Mondo

Just as important as any of the groundbreaking visuals of The Matrix Resurrections which helped make it an effective sci-fi adventure was the accompanying soundtrack, composed by Johnny Klimek and Tom Tykwer. In honor of the film’s achievements, Mondo is releasing a limited edition 2xLP vinyl to capture the sequel’s impressive soundscape. Additionally, Mondo publishes Matrix Resurrections: the remixes, another 2xLP that sees a variety of artists reinventing the soundtrack in compelling and inventive ways. Both sets will be available for pre-order via MondoRecordShop.com from January 19. The Matrix Resurrections is in theaters now.

Per press release, “Tom Tykwer discussed the composers’ work on The Matrix Resurrections. “There is a powerful and distinct musical heritage here. In my opinion, The matrix Trilogy is one of the greatest scores of all time. And what is particularly fantastic is that it was also, to my knowledge, one of the first film scores that implemented electronic music in this way and linked it to the progressive orchestral music of late modernity. This started a movement to which we pay homage with this music. And yet, this film is playful and emotional with a complex development, open in every way. Johnny and I thought our challenge for the music was to pay homage to The matrix lineage and also support this film business of expanding this legacy to explore new directions. It has to be represented in the music and that’s what we try to study musically.

“Johnny Klimek said: ‘We spent several months working on material for The Matrix Resurrections, building the main themes, working out alternative arrangements and electronic variants. We had a lot of fun mixing electronics with the classical orchestra. Technology has come so far since I started scoring movies.

“The infusion of electronic music into the score eventually extended to the inclusion of 11 remixes on the album, and it was an amalgamation of inspirations that brought this idea to fruition. Both composers worked extensively with the electronic music, including their work on the famous, techno-infused Run Lola Run soundtrack. Additionally, Lana Wachowski lives in Berlin and is linked to many DJs, remixers, producers and personalities deeply involved and associated with the underground electronic music scene – some for over 30 years – and the famous Berlin nightclub Berghain. These connections and inspirations evolved organically from a remix idea to the broader inclusion of remixes on the album.

The Matrix Resurrections: The Remixes includes 11 remixes by Johnny Klimek & Tom Tykwer, Marcel Dettmann, Moderna, Thomas Fehlmann, System 01, Esther Silex & Kotelett, Gudrun Gut, Almost Falling, Psychic Health, Eclectic Youth and Alessandro Adriani, pressed on 2x 180 gram ‘Red and Vinyl colorful Blue Pill Twist’ (limited to 1,000 copies) or 2 x 180 gram black vinyl, featuring original artwork by Mondo’s creative director, Mo Shafeek.
