Drum & Bass can be quite exciting. With its 174 bpm of pure speed and adrenaline, it’s hard to resist its rhythm. Now think of this feeling and add it to what you experience during videogames. Unless you’re playing The Sims, you’re probably gonna feel hyped up. This is exactly what the people behind Rocket League had in mind when they asked Monstercat to make an LP to use as soundtrack for the game. Most of it is purely EDM, but we couldn’t un-see that our beloved drum & bass producer Feint was rocking in the artists list. A good move for a game where you play football with cars: there are never enough bpm to satisfy the rushers.
Rocket League is becoming a popular game among the youngsters: combining football and cars is basically a quick way to sell your way out of the market, but these guys make no jokes, the game is mad. Plus, the music is cool so you gotta keep playing. In this one, the Manchester-based producer Feint joined MYLK for a very powerful track that could rock you in game and on the dancefloor as well. We got to say this wasn’t the first time: many other artists, like the well-known Flite, have done videogame soundtracks before with excellent results. Many videogames have gained something by having jungle, drum & bass or breakbeat as soundtrack (ever played Rollcage Stage II?). In this one, a guitar intro makes you think that the song will be chill and easy: it won’t, and you soon realize it when the voice begins to sing. The fast drums that characterize drum & bass start slowly to rise and create tension. A very Monstercat-like charging prepares the ground for a decent drop, which really puts you in the mood of the videogame, maybe also because of the sounds that Feint chose to realize it, which are extremely game-ish.
