As Mezzanine is turning 20 years old, the scale of its legacy never stops broadening.
One reminder of the forward-thinking dimension of the album's sound was, in 1999, the choice of this song to wake up Neo in the Matrix, one of the greatest science-fiction film ever made...
'Dissolved Girl' is playing in the hero's headphones just before he's told about the White Rabbit... and later on meets Trinity, who's the one who contacted him on this computer.
The song was co-written by Robert Del Naja, with Sarah Jay, the featured vocalist, and Matt Schwarz, and produced by Del Naja, with Grant Marshall, Andrew Vowles and Neil Davidge.
