Overview

As producers and remix artists, the Dust Brothers -- Silverlake, California boys Mike Simpson and John King -- specialize in sonic collages sampled from scores of obscure records, enhanced by electronics and driven by bass-heavy, hip-hop beats. Their approach has had spectacular results, including Beck's ODELAY and the Beastie Boys' PAUL'S BOUTIQUE, not to mention Hanson's debut and the Rolling Stones' BRIDGES TO BABYLON. For the all-instrumental score to FIGHT CLUB, which stars Brad Pitt and Edward Norton, the Brothers took a different tack: composing all original music. The 15 tracks comprising the FIGHT CLUB soundtrack are unmistakably the work of the Dust Brothers, as they're filled with seductive dance rhythms, jittery synths, and an ominous overall vibe. Suggestive titles like "Who Is Tyler Durden?" (he's Pitt's character), "Psycho Boy Jack," "Chemical Burn," and "Commissioner Castration" offer tantalizing clues to the movie's events. Director David Fincher hired the Dust Brothers out of a desire to eschew the typical orchestral film score, and they've delivered just what he ordered.

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Heather Phares
The score to David Fincher's controversial, subversive film Fight Club was composed and performed by the Dust Brothers, whose production and remixing work with artists like the Beastie Boys, Beck, and the Chemical Brothers helped shape the sound of the '90s. Their music for Fight Club reflects their own hip-hop and dance roots, as well as the film's edgy, underground tone in its blend of trip-hop, drum'n'bass, and electro elements.
