Last month, the Rick Rubin-helmed Star Wars Headspace project was released and, according to Billboard, “the force is strong” with the accomplished super-producer. The release features a Rubin-selected slate of star beatmakers turning in tracks that use the sounds of Star Wars to create unexpected new musical gems. Billboard has streams of three tracks, from Flying Lotus, Baauer, and Rubin himself, here.
The Verge is also hosting streams of the track, and says that “R2 Where R U?” by Flying Lotus “sounds a lot like the astral electro-jazz he’s released on albums like Cosmogramma and You’re Dead! with one key addition: chopped-up C-3PO samples.” Cop the feature here, beatheads.
