Hello all, this week we are thrilled to present a re-issue of one of the most iconic and essential soundtrack albums of all time: the original soundtrack to 2001: A SPACE ODYSSEY.
Not to be confused with our 2014 release of Alex North's unreleased score for the film (MUSIC FROM 2001) this re-issue of the original motion picture soundtrack album has been remastered and faithfully restored from the original source material in celebration of the film's 50th anniversary, and is available on two discs for the first time ever.
Second, we are thrilled to present Tom Holkenborg's kinetic score for the all new TERMINATOR: DARK FATE. Also, we are proud to present one of our favorite synth scores of 2016, BEACH RATS, as part of our on-going NEON soundtrack series.
As usual, new releases and restocks go on sale on Wednesdays at NOON (CT) via mondotees.com.

Mondo, in conjunction with WaterTower Music, is proud to present one of the most iconic film soundtracks of all time, 2001: A SPACE ODYSSEY.
The soundtracks to Stanley Kubrick's masterpieces are storied, and nearly as engaging and challenging as the films themselves. The soundtrack to 2001: A SPACE ODYSSEY is no different. Kubrick's last minute decision to omit all original scoring by legendary composer Alex North for classic orchestrations and waltzes went on to become some of the most iconic and discussed music for film in the last 50 years. Kubrick's use of 'The Blue Danube' alone is one of the most important uses of music in the history of film.
TERMINATOR: DARK FATE - Original Motion Picture Soundtrack 2XLP. Music by Tom Holkenborg. Artwork by Sara Deck. Pressed on 2X 180 Gram Silver with Black Splatter vinyl (also available on 2x 180 Gram Black vinyl). Expected to Ship. Ships Worldwide. $35
NOTE THIS ITEM IS A PRE-ORDER. All orders containing this item will not ship until January 2019.
Mondo, and Paramount Pictures are proud to present Tom Holkenborg's kinetic, fist pumping score to TERMINATOR: DARK FATE.
Similar to MAD MAX FURY ROAD, another film featuring a brilliant Tom Holkenborg score (A.K.A. Junkie XL), TERMINATOR DARK FATE is a movie that starts with a bang and never lets up. Holkenborg's ability to capture the controlled chaos of the chase is masterful, as it manages to weave in a delicate homage to Brad Fiedel's original TERMINATOR score without disrupting his own sonic take on the franchise.
Featuring a brand new illustration by Sara Deck, the soundtrack is pressed on 2X 180 Gram Silver with Black Splatter vinyl (also available on 2X 180 Gram Black vinyl) and housed in a wide-spine sleeve with two printed inner sleeves.
BEACH RATS - Original Motion Picture Soundtrack LP. Music by Nicholas Leone. Pressed on 180 Gram Translucent Blue (limited to 300 copies worldwide). Expected to Ship in November 2019. Ships Worldwide. $25
Mondo and NEON are proud to present Nicholas Leone's terrific synth score to Eliza Hittman's film BEACH RATS.
BEACH RATS is a criminally underseen coming of age movie set in Brooklyn and deals with sexual awaking and bisexuality in an utterly beautiful and human way. The score complements the film perfectly, Nick Leon delivers a spellbinding, magical, ambient score filled with emotion and dreamlike wonder, it’s a reminds the listener of softer Boards Of Canada style ambience and recent ravenous appetite for Japanese ambient reissues of the 80s and compliments the deft touch and dreamy atmosphere of the film perfectly. As a piece of music away from the film it could easily be at home on warp records and is a must-listen for fans of chilled out electronica with incredible melodies.
BLADE RUNNER 2049 - Original Motion Picture Soundtrack 2XLP. Music by Hans Zimmer and Benjamin Walfisch. Artwork by Viktor Kalvachev. Additional design by Chris Bilheimer. Webstore edition pressed on 2X 180 Gram Teal and Pink colored vinyl. Expected to Ship in August 2019. Ships Worldwide. $40
