Lost In Translation 2

I was listening to the soundtrack this week and feeling like I just wasn’t getting enough Lost in Translation. I really wanted more and I kind of knew what I wanted more of – so I decided I would make a Lost In Translation 2 compilation. If you love a Sofia Copolla film then you love a Brian Reitzell produced soundtrack. I have tried to retain that amazing Brian Reitzell vibe that flows thematically through all his soundtrack work which includes CQ, Marie Antoinette and of course The Virgin Suicides.

The imaginary Lost in Translation 2 picks up from where the original soundtrack finishes off and would be what you might have got on a special Deluxe Edition CD and features dialogue, found sounds and great music from Japan, Psychedelic Furs, New Order, Fluke and others. The original soudtrack did not play all the music featured in the film but the music is detailed here so perhaps there will be a real Lost in Translation 2 sometime? – while we are waiting this mixtape has a sort of anticipatory Coppola-esque 80s meets post-millennium vibe and comes to you in HQ audio so I hope you enjoy it…
