New mix features music from the soundtrack of the hit Netflix show
DJ Yoda has shared a mixtape collecting the music featured on new Netflix show Stranger Things, as well as clips from the science fiction series and music that inspired the show itself.
Stranger Things is a American supernatural science fiction horror series set in 1980s Indiana, written and directed by The Duffer Brothers and executive produced by Shawn Levy and Dan Cohen.
The official Stranger Things soundtrack will be released shortly. The show’s synth-led score was provided by Kyle Dixon and Michael Stein of Austin band S U R V I V E.
Now DJ Yoda – known for his mash-ups and mixes – has pieced together a Stranger Things-inspired mixtape. It features Joy Division, Tangerine Dream and more. Take a listen below.
The Netflix series has been such a success that many are already calling for a second series, and late last month (July 26) creators Matt and Ross Duffer revealed the follow-up would be a sequel to the story of season one if it went ahead.
Speaking to Variety, Ross Duffer explained that there is still a lot of information from first season to share. He said: “There’s a lot there we don’t know or understand. Even with ‘The Upside Down,’ we have a 30-page document that is pretty intricate in terms of what it all means, where this monster actually came from, and why aren’t there more monsters.”
“We have all this stuff that we just didn’t have time for, or we didn’t feel like we needed to get into in season one, because of the main tension of Will. We have that whole other world that we haven’t fully explored in this season, and that was very purposeful.”
Duffer explained that if season two of Stranger Things was to go ahead, that unexplored world from the first season would be the follow-up’s focus.
