Sandblast Productions "Killing It" With New Dexter Music Remixes for Showtime

Share Article

Sandblast Productions has produced two new remixes of the theme song to Showtime’s hit show, Dexter. “Tonight’s the Night” and “It’s Time” both inject Sandblast’s take on electronic dance music into Rolfe Kent’s melody. The remixes—featuring electronica music artists Arclite and The Hair Kid— can be seen on YouTube, heard on radio, and were just picked up by

“The collaboration with Sandblast Productions was exactly what this remix project needed - featuring audio clips from Dexter and electronica music. They really brought it to life,” said Showtime’s SVP Production & Technology Paul Nicholson.

SHOWTIME, the home of the four-time 2012 EMMY Award-winning Homeland, premieres the brand new Season 7 of Dexter this Sunday, Sept 30th at 9PM EST. The newly created tracks from Sandblast Productions in EDM, Electronic and Dubstep mixes were released internationally on iTunes and Beatport in July 2012 by Milan Records.

The impetus for the remixes came from Showtime’s SVP Production & Technology, Paul Nicholson. Earlier this year Nicholson approached Sandblast Productions about a different creative approach to the Dexter theme that combined not only new musical elements but also audio clips from Dexter.

Says Nicholson, “I kept hearing in my head what this Dexter theme music remix could be, and I knew I could articulate that to the Sandblast guys.”

Ralph Kelsey, Loren Toolajian and Mike Ungar of Sandblast Productions then created a number of demos for Dexter with different musical idioms and a variety of soundbites, collaborating closely with Paul on concept and mixes. Sandblast then took the remixes to the next level by incorporating the dubstep of Gabe and Jake Spector’s Arclite, and the electronica groove of Miles Ungar, the Hair Kid.

“I couldn’t be happier with the results. The collaboration with Sandblast Productions was exactly what this project for Dexter needed. They really brought it to life” said Nicholson.

The remixes have played online, on Showtime, and on the radio to great acclaim. With the recent addition of distribution, both remixes will now have an even greater worldwide presence.

Sandblast Productions is an award-winning music production company specializing in music for television, radio, film and theatre. Recent projects include production and music for ESPN’s 2012 Indy 500, the ESPYs, Showtime’s The Borgias, and Sesame Street’s Emmy Award-winning prime-time special, “Growing Hope Against Hunger.”
