9 The O Soundtrack My Heart Edition

How important are film soundtracks to our perception of music? Can made-for-movie tracks transcend the blockbuster from whence they came? On the eve of the release of Baz Luhrman’s ‘Great Gatsby’, we take a look back at arguably one of his best films, ‘Romeo + Juliet’ and discuss what effect the silver screen has on our ears and our heartstrings.

We then hit a jugular with Des’ree’s ‘Kissing You’, while we check out new music from Rudimental collaborator John Newman, as well as a classic rap banger from Big Pun and new Swedish pop from NoNoNo.

We recently sat down with Jimmy2Sox to discuss the ups and downs of being one of the most in-demand production pairs in Australia. He told us about finding new female voices in your junk mailbox, why a mixtape is the best kind of business card and discussed whether putting a gold record on your wall makes you a dick.
