Released in 1979, the acclaimed Walter Hill’s action thriller “The Warriors”, based on Sol Yurick’s 1965 novel of the same name, keeps inspiring the younger generations. In the most recent case, Varese-based Samuele De Santis decided to step a little bit away from his House Music heavily influenced sonority and rush to his workstation after watching the movie and bring to life a mix of four glitchy/overdriven/crunchy/uptempo originals. For the remix duties, Panko (U’re Guay Records) and we.amps (SXDNS285) brought their respective influences to enrich even more the independent release.
“I think the new warriors are us: People trying to express themselves through different art forms, specifically in my case through music”, said De Santis, who spared no efforts to deliver a compelling EP as a modern tribute to the cult classic.
Premiered here, “Electric Eliminators” – the opening theme named after one of the gangs depicted in the film –, is a 130-BPM nervous & frenzied cut that would fit perfectly in the OST of a remake of such a cinematographic masterpiece to bring the necessary menacing atmosphere for a chasing scene.
You can find (and buy) this and other music pearls on the Bandcamp page of the artist.
