Hudson Mohawke Updates A Puccini Aria For 'Grand Theft Auto III'
Listen to his “refix” of “O Mio Babbino Caro”
HudMo isn’t afraid of anything. When it comes to remixing and putting beats to other people’s songs, it doesn’t matter whether it’s Wiley, Björk or Puccini. One of his latest commissions was to “update” an aria from the opera “Gianni Schicchi” (1918), by Giacomo Puccini, for Rockstar Games, with an eye to the tenth anniversary edition of ‘GTA 3'. The song has really been on the market since the end of January (you can download it, after paying a few centimes of a euro, here) but almost nobody had noticed its existence until the people at Warp mentioned it on Twitter a couple of days ago. This is how “ O Mio Babbino Caro” sounds in the Scotsman’s hands.
