With the release of Watch Dogs 2 only a few weeks away, Ubisoft has announced the producer for the new game’s soundtrack: successful producer Hudson Mohawke. Ubsioft claims that it blends his known style of electronic and hip hop with his love for more classical electronic music like you may expect from Tomita, John Carpenter, or Vangelis.
Mohawke had this to say about working on the soundtrack:
Working on this soundtrack was a really exciting and refreshing prospect for me, especially considering the themes in the game are things I’m also passionate about. When Ubisoft approached me to work alongside them in developing the game’s sounds, I knew I wanted to use the palette of some cult sci-fi soundtracks while also incorporating my own style. It’s been a real learning experience, and even a challenge at some points, but very rewarding in terms of expressing myself creatively and allowing me to reach new audiences with my music without needing a ‘genre’ stamp.
The first song from the soundtrack: “Shanghaied” is now available on Spotify, Apple Music, Bleep, and Google Play, with the rest of the soundtrack launching on November 11.
