El-P was in a giving mood on Wednesday (March 28), sharing an unused beat he created for the Blade Runner 2049 trailer with fans. According to the Run The Jewels MC/producer, he only had a few days to create the track after filmmakers requested his services.
“as i get closer and closer to being able to announce the film score i’m doing this year, i thought it might be nice to finally throw out this little piece,” El-P wrote on SoundCloud. “its what i put together for the blade runner 2 trailer when they called on me. i was honored to even be thought . almost every sound apart from percussion was created on the same type synth vangelis used for the original blade runner score. its unmixed as i only had about 2 days to whip it together and send over. enjoy.”
Blade Runner 2049, the sequel to the 1982 cult classic Blade Runner, premiered in theaters last October. El-P previously shared a snippet his trailer score Instagram last September.
An enterprising fan has already synced up El-P’s newly unearthed production with the film’s trailer. The Def Jux co-founder has given it his blessing, saying, “This is why i canít ditch Twitter.”
