As audio director, it has been my goal to make the in-game music experience consistently fresh and exciting as we roll out new features and content. Whether this means collaborations with other artists, music remixed by fans, or adding pre-existing tunes that just sound fantastic, we want to ensure that your ears are happy when you play Rocket League.
With today’s announcement, it felt like a great opportunity to provide a little trivia about the artists and tracks on Vol. 2 that you may find interesting — including…
- Hollywood Principle has done more tracks than any other group when you combine both Rocket League soundtracks, and it’s actually a group I’m a part of with my bandmates, Elliott Sencan and Kayla Hope.
- The “Hoops” song, “Game Time” is a collaboration between myself and our eSports and Events Manager, Josh Watson — who is also known in music circles as “Dr. Awkward.” We put the song together in less than a day, but it turned out fantastically and was a blast to produce.
- The Revenge of the Battle-Cars DLC brought the remix by Ether along with it. Ether himself is a 17 year-old musical prodigy and the youngest artist to appear on either soundtrack.
- Gears of War composer, Kevin Riepl, is a good friend of mine and the Psyonix studio who has also scored other well-known games like Twisted Metal: Black, Crackdown 2, and Battleborn, and he’s also the man who wrote the post-apocalyptic theme for Chaos Run DLC
- Kev Frey’s “Seeing What’s Next” remix is actually a contest-winning song. Last October, we hosted a competition with Indaba Music to see what fans could do. Out of 431 submissions, Kev Frey’s is the one that the office fell in love with, making it the perfect pairing for our most recent update, Neo Tokyo
Looking towards the future, we want to continue to focus on adding more independent artists to Rocket League.We are indie developers ourselves, so we believe in giving previously-unknown musicians a chance to shine. One of our next steps to help make this happen in year two is to give fans like you a chance to submit your tracks directly to us via [email protected]. If you are or you know an artist whose work you think would fit our game, send us a line. You never know — we may feature you in our trailer, soundtrack, and perhaps even the game itself.
On behalf of the entire team at Psyonix, thank you for your continued support of our game, our music, and our team.
