Weekend Remix: Set Phasers To Groove!
Song: Epic Star Trek Remix
By: Issac Vail
Based On: Theme From Star Trek
Original Composer: Alexander Courage
Remixes! An audio frontier.
Sometimes it can be viewed as a familiar visit in a completely new ride—at least that’s the case for this week’s Weekend Remix.
It would be hard to argue that the theme to the original Star Trek show isn’t one of the most recognizable or iconic TV themes. Well, you could argue that, but unless you want the anger of a million plus phaser-ready Star Trek fans, you would probably fare better by not arguing. Even if you didn’t dig the leadership of Capt. Kirk or the logical musings of Spock, you have to admit that the theme song managed to convey this excellent feeling of losing yourself in the stars, while also hoping for some type of grand adventure.
And luckily, film score composer Issac Vail’s remix doesn’t remove any of that feeling.
His take on the tune is still as open and vast as space itself, with the strengthened inclusion of the famous angelic vocals still setting one up for a new world adventure of a grand scale. And yet, it’s strangely laid back, almost like moving in hyper-speed without feeling it.
Additionally, it’s also the type of house techno song you’d hear in some dusty lounge a few light years away from earth, sipping martinis and stealing glances at some green alien woman. Ah, to boldly go where no song has gone before.
Until next weekend…GO Party!
