© 180 BeatsIt's a remix which features on the sound track to '180 Beats Per Minute' which was the winner of the Grand Prix at this years Cannes Film Festival. THis is Arnaud Rebotini very good remix of Bronski Beat's 'Smalltown Boy'...

Originally released in 1984 by British synthpop group Bronski Beat, a rich personal experience made the trio’s biggest hit “Smalltown Boy” poignant commentary for growing up Gay in the provinces.

The film “120 BPM”, this years critically acclaimed ode to an era of activism arguably has its musical soundtrack as its emotional centerpiece.

Smalltown Boy’s lyrically liberal and heartfelt message made it the perfect accompaniment for Director Robin Campillo’s drama of politics, passion and loss proudly winning the Grand Prize at this year's Cannes film festival and now selected by France in the Foreign-Language Category at this years Oscars.

While Campillo brilliantly juggles intimate scenes with political action on screen, he requested French electronic producer Arnaud Rebotini to sound track his passionate and defiant account of 80’s Aids Activism.
 
Robin Campello asked me to remix ‘Smalltown Boy’ as a kind of homage to Bronski Beat’s lead vocalist Jimmy Sommerville, who was one of the first contributors of Act Up-Paris (AIDS Coalition To Unleash Power). He had also participated in a demonstration concert that has since stuck in Robin’s memoryArnaud Rebotini

One of the most poignant moments in the film is musically illustrated with equal radiance, while the remixes accompanying video features both scenes and previously unseen outtakes.

While remixing a timeless classic is never an easy task, for Rebotini the idea was easy “to do a remix as if it had been made in 1993” and he successfully incorporates subtle club references with layers of house and disco capturing the tragic and cinematic soul of the film.
