I was watching Danny Boyle’s Trance last night and I kept hearing this synth come in and out during various points during the film. I was racking my brain thinking…I KNOW THAT SYNTH! WHERE DO I KNOW IT FROM? Then all at once it hit me…it’s Rob & Goldie’s The Shadow (Process Remix) on Moving Shadow Records (1997). Rick Smith aka Underworld handled the remix duties for the Process version and created the synth from the original, which is itself a classic.
They dropped the computer voiceover in Trance, but kept that iconic fading synth. I haven’t finished the rest of the film yet to see if they get to the break, but I keep hoping they do…we’ll see.
