Nero channel Tron in the Me & You video

This must be why Nero's single has been delayed - they've been busy rendering expensive CGI sequences for the video on a Commodore Amiga. Fans of waggling joysticks will be pleased.

Streets Of Rage!

Nero ft Alana - Me & You

The above is presumably what people wanted Daft Punk's Tron soundtrack to sound like. Instead, the Tron soundtrack is an electro reinterpretation of Vangelis' Blade Runner score. There are lots of strings going "wheee" and "squaaaaw" over the top of sustained droning synth notes. Beats, by and large, do not drop. When they do, they're all "portentous drama", rather than the preferred "spilling lager down your bra in an arms-akimbo rush to the dancefloor" variety.

This is not a bad thing. If Daft Punk had gone all songy, then Tron would have turned into a very expensive, two-hour version of the upsettingly bad club sequence in Matrix Reloaded. And nobody wants that.

Nero remixing Daft Punk's Tron soundtrack, on the other hand, would be insane.
