dedsec - watch dogs 2 (ost)

Ubisoft's “Watch Dogs“ was the fastest selling game in history - chances are fairly high though that the long-awaited sequel will take particular credit anytime soon, as “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 in San Francisco's Bay Area.

The exclusive original soundtrack consists of fifteen tracks created by Warp's Hudson Mohawke, and will be released on November 11.

“I get really restless working on projects that are expected to fall within certain “genres”, when I’ve always made all kinds of music. Working on a soundtrack was a really exciting and refreshing prospect for me, especially considering the themes involved in the game are things I’m also passionate about. In 2016, this project, along with the ANOHNI LP, have allowed me to experiment and have the opportunity to reach new audiences with my music without needing a “genre” stamp. I think that’s why Ubisoft approached me to work alongside them in developing the game as a whole - I wanted to use the palette of some cult sci fi soundtracks but 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."
