Lemmy and Snoop Dogg Flip
Current skateboard films use old tracks that you most likely have heard before, Flip’s EXTREMELY SORRY soundtrack is definitely one of a kind, produced in Southern California by UK premier league Producer & DJ BARON. Best known in the UK for his Drum & Bass productions and work with record label Breakbeat Kaos (Baron’s 2006/2007 tracks, “At The Drive In” and “Drive in, Drive by” both reached the #1 spot on the UK Dance Charts and his releases are featured heavily on Zane Lowe & Annie Macs Radio 1 shows), the soundtrack Baron has created for EXTREMELY SORRY instead features an broard array of musical styles that match each skater’s part in the film, crafting a completely unique audio/visual experience.

As well as BARON making some jaw dropping instrumental tracks, he also collaborated with Lemmy Kilmister (Motorhead), Dave Lombardo (Slayer), Jim Lindberg (Pennywise), Mack Winston (Mack Winston and the Reflections), Black Mountain, ((Sounder)), Early Man, Snoop Dogg and Warren G to make a soundtrack that is as highly anticipated as the film itself.
From atmospheric soundscapes to industrial thrashers, the soundtrack covers an expansive spectrum of music and is stand out from start to finish. The highlights include a classic cover of Ben E. King’s “Stand By Me” (ft. Lemmy Kilmister & Dave Lombardo), “The End Of The Beginning” (ft. Black Mountain), “Ignition,” “Burn Out Like Fireflies” (ft. ((Sounder))) and “Process Of Extinction” (ft. Early Man).
BARON worked closely for countless hours with EXTREMELY SORRY director and star of the film Geoff Rowley, to score original songs that match up with each skater’s personal style, It was also Rowley who was the one who helped Baron initially connect with the skaters to legitimize the process with them as well as with the rest of the skateboard industry.
“EXTREMELY SORRY has been 4 years in the making and THE most insane journey I have been on. The music was made to serve the skateboarding and the skateboarding is epic." - Baron
