Track of the Week: Escape 700 by The Chemical Brothers

This week’s track is Escape 700 by The Chemical Brothers, off of the Hanna soundtrack. I haven’t heard much from The Chemical Brothers in a while and haven’t seen this movie, but the album randomly crossed the desks of Track of the Week. Escape 700 is a pulsing, yet brooding electronica track, perhaps best described as electronica/house meets Middle Eastern beats. There’s probably a whole label out there that specializes in this genre of music. Of all the tracks on the Hanna soundtrack, this is maybe the one that’s most “song”-like, as many of the others are ambient mood setting types of sound. It’s a great track in an otherwise good album.
