About the album
Paul Hartnoll from Orbital has remixed Ruth Barrett’s theme for the BBC show ‘Bodyguard’.

A note from Ruth Barrett on this remix:

“I approached Paul Hartnoll as I have long been a fan of Orbital and his soundtrack work. He had seen the show and loved it, so was up for experimenting with the theme track. There is no melody or obvious harmonic structure, so any additional harmonies wouldn’t really work.

The Bodyguard theme has a late night clubby feel with a repetitive beat, which was crying out for a remix. My brief to Paul was this: Keep it dirty and simple, stay with the main components of the theme but work your magic around it. The main element was for him to keep the sound and think about the toxic relationship between the two leads, and also to just have fun with it and see what he could come up with off the cuff.

He had perfectly captured the spirit and essence of the show, plus put his own unique spin on it.”
