Best EDM based video game soundtracks

Posted at November 6th, 2015 | by Sidhantha Jain | in

Great game play when combined with Electronic Dance Music makes an unbeatable combination.

That’s what Afrojack achieved with his latest single “Unstoppable” which features on Activision’s new video game – Call of Duty: Black Ops III.

 

 

Well, this isn’t the first time when a celebrated gaming franchise and a dance music producer teamed up together. Check out some of the other EDM inspired video game soundtracks:

Need for Speed (2015)

The music catalogue includes beats from Avicii, Dirty South, Flosstradamus, Hudson Mohawke, Kill The Noise, Major Lazer, Netsky, Spor, the Chemical Brothers, Wolfgang Gartner, and Zeds Dead just to mention a few. Also it features rock and hip-hop acts such as Silversun Pickups and Run The Jewels respectively.

NBA 2K16

This 2K Sports production comprises of a 50 track soundtrack! The genres go “Around the World” from rock and indie to EDM, boasting tunes from Major Lazer, Zedd, and Calvin Harris!

Project CARS

When you mix deadmau5, video games and cars you get something like a Project Cars tracklist! Joel lent 26 of his originals/remixes (except ‘Ghosts ‘n’ Stuff’ Sub Focus remix and Tommy Trash remix of ‘The Veldt’) from his discography to make up this amazing self-curated music lineup!

HALO 4

The Halo 4 remix album contains 14 tracks all remixed by Sander Van Doorn to Caspa, as well as Andrew Bayer and many more covering almost all subgenres of EDM. My pick is Alvin Risk’s Nemesis.

Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 5

Not only is this personal favorite of mine a marvelous take on the skateboarding world, it also lists EDM superstars Skrillex and Yogi on its official album track list! The game also features the likes of Death From Above 1979, Ratatat and Royal Blood for its Hip-Hop fan base.

Did we miss your favorite game? Mention it in the comments; we’ll come up with a Part 2!
