DJ Skee & THX team with Microsoft Xbox & Neil Davidge for Halo 4 (Listen Here)

I’m excited to announce that myself alongside THX have teamed up with Microsoft Xbox to remix Neil Davidge’s original composition for Halo 4. I’ve been playing Halo since the day the first Xbox came out and have watched it grow into one of the biggest franchises of our generation. The theme & music of Halo has always been so epic, we knew we had to do something special… and are excited about what we created! Listen to a sample of how it turned out below, and let us know what you think!

The Halo 4 Soundtrack will be available for purchase October 22, 2012. Halo 4 releases for Xbox 360 on November 6, 2012.

MTV: Space, Guns, and Music Pt. 2: DJ Skee on Remixing 'Halo 4'

Yesterday we brought you details of the October 22nd release of the 2-disc Halo 4 Original Soundtrack Special Edition which will include 14 remixes of composer Neil Davidge’s score for the return of the Master Chief and Cortana’s battles at the farthest reaches of the galaxy. We also spoke with Neil Davidge about creating a new sound for the Halo universe as Halo 4 hits retail this November.

Among the musicians tapped to spin out variations of Davidge’s score is L.A.-based producer DJ Skee (AKA Scott Keeney), who provided a mix (alongside THX) for the track “Revival.” While not mixing tracks for the Chief, Skee also heads his own video production company,Skee.TV.

We spoke to him by phone recently about putting his own spin on the sounds of Halo 4 and what it’s like for a longtime fan of the series to be a first-time producer on one of its soundtracks, and I hope it provides some insight into what goes into building our own remix.
