Following on from their successful 2010 return with the Tron:Legacy soundtrack, Daft Punk have now commissioned their favourite earth friends to recreate and remix the original compositions for the appropriately titled Reconfigured version.
Here we have Modular's own Tame Impala replacing the head-numbing bass of End Of Line with an infectiously haunting chorus of synthetic organs and their signature whirlwinds of psychedelic bliss, dragging the original version out of the neon straight edges of the cyberworld and into a joyfully unpredictable space.
The track features on the Australian version of the remix soundtrack, which will be available in stores from April 8. Pre-orders available now via JB Hi-Fi.
