Peter Jackson’s 2005 rendition King Kong has nothing on Terravita’s. Neither does Jack Black, Adrien Brody, or even the lovely Naomi Watts. If somebody makes a new King Kong movie, and they don’t choose this song to be the theme song – well that would just be a waste of everyone’s time.
Terravita spins ominously-pitched organs with a crunchy, tropical bassline. Their take on King Kong, originally produced by Bare & Datsik, is a dubstep thriller that’ll keep your head bobbing for all 303 seconds. If you can hang for that long. Formed in 2005 by Matt Simmers, Jon Spero, Chris Barlow, Terravita will tickle the fancy of anyone with an itch for bass music.
And this time around, the tickles are free.
