So Bassnectar and Chino Moreno (Deftones/Crosses/Palms/+more) teamed up to do a track for the Resident Evil: Retribution 3D movie called “Hexes” and the results are dubsteppy darkness with Chino making the song 100x better. Chino makes the song listenable, definitely. I suppose this particular song will run during the end credits of the film. This just goes to show you that Chino can sing over acoustic guitars, electric 8 strings, wobbly dance music AND hip hop and he will definitely make it a good song. Bravo!
“For those of you out there who enjoy the dark side of music, here’s my “Hexes” track for the new “Resident Evil: Retribution” movie, made with one of my favorite singers alive, Chino Moreno [big ups Chino]!!
I was thrilled to be a part of scoring this, and wanted to make a beat that dropped like a wall of bricks to knock people back in their seats at the movie’s sudden and dramatic end. Chino put together the lyrics in a poem that felt like a slow motion dream, and somehow the two sensations works in tandem: falling backwards in a dream while getting blown back by a wobbling wall of sound.”
