Star Wars LP produced by Rick Rubin features Lin-Manuel Miranda, Flying Lotus
The Force is strong with Rick Rubin’s turntables.
The influential hip-hop and music producer has taken controls of Star Wars Headspace, an album of electronic tracks that sample Star Wars‘ robotic beeps, music riffs, and dialogue. Star Wars: The Force Awakens director J.J. Abrams, Hamilton mastermind Lin-Manuel Miranda, Flying Lotus, Kaskade, and Baauer were among those tapped to create tracks for the 15-song effort.
One of these collaborations was teased before The Force Awakens hit theaters when Abrams revealed he and Miranda worked together on an updated cantina song, “Jabba Flow.” However, A-Trak and Rubin will give their own take on it for Headspace.
