Massive Attack - Massive Attack Influenced Halo 4

Neil Davidge's 'Halo 4' soundtrack is influenced by Massive Attack.

The record producer and composer has worked with electronic band since the nineties - contributing to albums 'Mezzanine', '100th Window', 'Collected' and 'Heligoland' - and says all of them influenced his work on video game 'Halo 4'.

He exclusively told BANG Showbiz: ''My work with Massive Attack gave me a lot of creative freedom to explore new ideas and new approaches. It has influenced me as a composer hugely. I've had free reign. I haven't had a record company breathing down my neck.

''I always look for something new when I make music. I'm looking for an original sound I can mix with the more classical melodic approach that I did with Massive Attack.''

Neil spent two years working on the soundtrack to the latest game in the series, which will be the first of a new series named the 'Reclaimer Trilogy'.

Neil also worked with 14 pioneering electronic musicians on a remix album of the tracks he's produced for 'Halo 4' - the first time this has happened in the gaming series - including contributions from DJ Skee, Gui Boratto, Caspa, classical rock group Apocalyptica and ex-Smashing Pumpkins guitarist James Iha.

He added: ''In the past I've done a lot of remixes myself, especially with Massive Attack. It is something I enjoy very much. The prospect of these mixing artists taking my work, taking it and changing it, was very exciting. I've been very pleased with the results.''

'Halo 4' launches worldwide 6th November exclusively on Xbox 360. For more info visit www.Halowaypoint.com
