The stars aligned when Flip Skateboards joined forces with noted music producer and premier league DJ Baron, to create a completely unique soundtrack for their hugely anticipated third video project ExtremelySorry. The soundtrack has been years in the making and features an array of musical styles to match each skater’s part in the film. Baron worked closely with film director Ewan Bowman for countless hours to score original tracks which matched each skater’s style as well as one of the film’s stars Geoff Rowley, who helped Baron connect closely to the skaters and legitimize the process with them and the skateboard industry.
“ExtremelySorry has been 4 years in the making and the most insane journey I have been on. The music was made to serve the skateboarding and the skateboarding is epic.”—Baron
Through an array of relationships, Baron, Geoff Rowley and the Flip team were able to arrange a mix of artists to provide vocals throughout the soundtrack. At the time of this press release details have yet to be released, however expect appearances for major acts in the rock, rap and punk genres.
Partnering with Volcom Entertainment to distribute and market the album, Flip feels this soundtrack will set the standard to come for skate films in the future.
To give a taste of what the soundtrack will be like, Flip has released an instrumental track from the ExtremelySorry David Gonzalez trailer for free available on the Volcom Entertainment site.
The soundtrack will be available for purchase in stores on 10/20/09.
