More than 30 years after the original series was brought to life by George Lucas, the world finally got ‘Episode VII: The Force Awakens’. Fueled by Disney, a $200 million budget, nostalgia, and the next generation of Star Wars fanatics, the film has received rave reviews from both fans and critics. It has crossed the ridiculous $2 billion mark, and secured several spinoff movies for the Star Wars universe. The movie was praised for its visual effects and especially its strong female lead, something many action films have historically lacked. Legendary film composer John Williams was once again tasked with creating the soundtrack for the newest installment in the franchise.
In an interesting and exciting turn of events, Rick Rubin, one of the most prominent hip hop producers (ever), has curated and produced a project entitled ‘Star Wars Headspace’. According to Pitchfork, several of hip hop and EDM’s biggest producers, including Flying Lotus, Rustie, A-Trak, Baauer, Röyksopp, Kaskade, Shlohmo, GTA, and others, have made dance tracks that sample some of the franchise’s most iconic sounds. Three tracks premiered on Zane Lowe’s Beats 1 Apple Radio show on Feb. 8th and sound amazing.
The track-listing for Star Wars Headspace includes:

If you know these names then you definitely know that this will be an album that deserves a listen! Watch for ‘Star Wars Headspace’ to release on Feb. 19th via Hollywood Records/American Recordings.
