Waxwork Records is thrilled to announce the film score debut of L≈Ωon: The Professional on deluxe vinyl. The 1994 action-crime-thriller film directed by Luc Besson (The Fifth Element, Lucy) stars Jean Reno, Gary Oldman, and features the motion picture debut of Natalie Portman. In the film, L≈Ωon (Reno), a professional hitman, reluctantly takes in 12-year-old Mathilda (Portman), after her family is murdered by corrupt Drug Enforcement Administration agent, Norman Stansfield (Oldman). L≈Ωon and Mathilda form an unusual relationship, as she becomes his prot≈Ωg≈Ωe and learns the hitman's trade.
Waxwork Records√ï new double-LP release marks the very first time the film score by composer ∆íric Serra has been released on vinyl. Combining both electronic and orchestral cues, Serra creates a score that is tense, yet beautiful, which compliments the film√ïs action sequences and the childhood innocence of Mathilda.
In keeping with Waxwork Records√ï tireless efforts to create the highest quality soundtrack and film score releases on vinyl, the audio for L≈Ωon: The Professional was sourced from the original master tapes and then re-mastered for vinyl by producer and former White Zombie guitarist, J. Yuenger. The packaging includes 180 gram colored vinyl, heavyweight old-style tip on jackets with soft-touch coating, and new artwork by Oliver Barrett.
