Hudson Mohawke Shares New Track
'Ded Sec - Watch Dogs 2 (OST)' is out now on Warp Records.
Hudson Mohawke has created a complete original soundtrack to Ubisoft’s upcoming open-world game, “Watch_Dogs 2.” Announced late October with the track “Shanghaied”, label Warp has now shared “Play N Go.”
From Ross Birchard:
“With “Play n Go,” I really wanted to create something that could be both big and anthemic but also strips back to some tough, driving percussion at points. I feel like both these motifs are reflections of the gameplay also; whether you want to go in all guns blazing or play in a more tense, stealthy style. Above all, I really wanted to keep the rebellious nature of the game within the track, crunchy DIY sounding with a victorious kind of cheeky undertone.”
Set in the San Francisco Bay Area, “Watch_Dogs 2” invites players to step inside the shoes of brilliant hacker Marcus Holloway on his journey to pull off the hack of the century: a crippling shutdown of ctOS 2.0, an invasive technology used by the powerful to silently control everyday citizens.
Stylistically Ded Sec – Watch Dogs 2 (OST) casts a sound now synonymous with Hudson Mohawke. The release harks back to his earlier work fusing electronics, hip-hop and the beat scene, but hints towards Hudson’s love of classic science fiction scores.
