US industrial act Mindless Faith have completed an unofficial remix of Daft Punk’s “The Game Has Changed” – also known as the “TRON Legacy” Theme music. This unofficial remix was done with just the trailers released online and without having the individual tracks like for a real remix. The mix is nothing less but a jewel.
Mindless Faith formed in 1995 in New York and combines the work of Jasin (vocals) and Chris Sevanick (keyboards). Following months of rehearsals and various live performances, the two-team recorded their self-produced and independently released debut album “The Silence” which hit the record stores in 1996. In 1999, Paul Green (drums) became Faith’s third element, while Corey Appleby appeared as the added element for Faith’s live concerts.
So I guess there is a good chance you will meet with both aliens and Daft Punk in Sweden this winter

The full track from, The Game Has Changed, has been officially ‘leaked’.Previously heard in snippets in the Tron: Legacy trailer, this cool electronic piece can be heard in full below. The bad news is that the release of the complete soundtrack has been pushed back to December 7. It’s also emerged that Daft Punk will score the Tron: Legacy video game, reportedly with songs from the film soundtrack and more original material.
