With an epic, futuristic storyline spanning multiple alien races, far-out space travel and the survival of the human species, the Halo videogame series demands a gripping cinematic score. For Halo 4, Massive Attack associate Neil Davidge composed more than 75 minutes of unique material with titles like "Awakening," "Haven" and "Requiem." On this remix of "Ascendancy," U.K. basshead Caspa infuses the juggernaut jam with a heavy low end and metallic gleams, giving the track an appropriately menacing feel.

The Halo 4 soundtrack will be available October 22nd. A remix album featuring Caspa, James Iha, Sander Van Doorn, Gui Boratto, Hundred Waters and more will be released the same day. Halo 4 is due November 6th for Xbox 360.
