“Danger Mouse Enlists Run the Jewels and Big Boi for New Baby Driver Song” – Pitchfork

Read News Entry: http://pitchfork.com/news/73160-danger-mouse-enlists-run-the-jewels-and-big-boi-for-new-baby-driver-song-listen/:

Edgar Wright:
Brian saw the first cut of Baby Driver last year and immediately enquired about the prospect of releasing the soundtrack through 30th Century Records. As I was finishing up the movie and putting the 29-track soundtrack together, Brian had the idea to do a remix based on the opening track of the movie; “Bellbottoms” by the Jon Spencer Blues Explosion. Its apt that we used this song as a jumping off point as the nascent idea of Baby Driver came to me in a dream after listening to “Orange” a hell of a lot when I was 21. And on top of that both Killer Mike & Big Boi make brief cameos in this Atlanta set movie, drinking with Kevin Spacey’s crime boss at a fancy ATL eatery. I’m thrilled how “Chase Me” turned out, a great collision of five of my favourite artists.

Danger Mouse:
Edgar showed me a cut of the movie last year and I loved the Atlanta connection. I’ve been doing more Hip Hop stuff recently, so I bugged both RTJ and Big Boi to jump on it. We’ve all known each other for years and talked about working together before so I’m really glad this could happen now.

More info on the track from 30th Century Records:

“Award-winning producer and artist, Danger Mouse, will release the soundtrack for Edgar Wright’s highly anticipated film, Baby Driver, on his Columbia Records imprint 30th Century Records this June. The soundtrack for the music-heavy film, titled Music From The Motion Picture Baby Driver, boasts 30 multi-genre tunes in total, including 29 rare tracks and deep cuts, as well as one original song created by Danger Mouse specifically for Baby Driver.
Today, Danger Mouse released the aforementioned original song, Chase Me” ft. Run the Jewels and Big Boi. The guest features on the song make for the perfect film tie in, as both Killer Mike of Run the Jewels and Big Boi have small but memorable appearances in Baby Driver. “Chase Me” samples “Bellbottoms” by Jon Spencer Blues Explosion and features additional production from Run The Jewels El-P.
Debuting on Pitchfork, “Chase Me” ft. Run The Jewels and Big Boi serves as an original composition created specifically for the film. “Chase Me” ft. Run the Jewels and Big Boi is now available on all digital sales providers.” – 30thcenturyrecords.com

The Songs That Made Edgar Wright Make “Baby Driver”

“The acclaimed British filmmaker’s SXSW debut was a smash success–and it was guided by a soundtrack that tells its story.”

Bellbottoms” – The Jon Spencer Blues Explosion:

“There was a point in my life when I couldn’t stop listening to [the album] Orange. I remember very vividly. It was just when I first moved to London. I was 21. I was living in a house with some friends in an area called Wood Green. I had a cassette of it, and I just listened to ‘Bellbottoms’ over and over and over again. I started to visualize a car chase that would go along with the music. At that point that’s all that I really had. Then I was trying to think of what story could sort of service this kind of dream that I was having. Then I started to have this idea: I’m very much like the main character, in terms of how I use music to motivate myself. I use music to focus, like an internal motor. If you’re on a road trip you need driving music. When I’m writing, even outside of this movie, I have to write the music playing, and it has to be the right kind of music. Whenever I’m writing a script, I’m scoring myself by playing the right kind of music. So I thought there was something in this idea of a character who can’t operate without the right kind of music playing.”
