Grammys 2017: Kyle Dixon and Michael Stein’s ‘Insane’ Meteoric Rise As ‘Stranger Things’ Composers Cannot Be Understated

Getting nominated for two GRAMMY® awards is an amazing peak on our ‘Stranger Things’ journey,” said Dixon. “The directors were previously fans of S U R V I V E. They used a song from our first LP in a trailer they made to pitch their concept to Netflix. Once the show was picked up, they reached out to see if we were available to score the show.” Stein added, “We wanted a classic synth tone and feel to the music for the show, while offering a refreshing quality so it felt modern. Now we’re nominated for two GRAMMY awards which is insane. – PR Web
