The original version of Drive features music from Cliff Martinez as well as Chromatics, Kavinsky and College. Chvrches, Jon Hopkins and Bastille, among others, were among the artists asked for their alternative scores, which was broadcast last night (October 30) on BBC Three.
Other artists involved in Radio 1 Rescores: Drive – Curated by Zane Lowe include Baauer, Banks, Bring Me The Horizon, Eric Prydz, Laura Mvula, The Neighbourhood and ZCC (Biffy Clyro’s Simon Neil).
Drive is directed by Nicolas Winding Refn and stars Gosling as a Hollywood stunt driver who moonlights as a getaway driver. Refn has given the plan his blessing, although it has not received universal approval, with many fans of the original criticising the idea online and Zane Lowe being forced to defend the idea.
