Tokimonsta gives us another song from her upcoming Creature Dreams EP

About two weeks ago, Tokimonsta uploaded the brand new song, “Breathe on my Contacts,” to her soundcloud along with a free download link.

Although the soundcloud download link has since reached its limit, you can still listen to the song below:

Just this afternoon, Tokimonsta linked her facebook followers to an article in XLR8R regarding her new EP, Creature Dreams. It also includes a premier of the song “Bright Shadows,” along with a download link. Just follow the link below to see the article and download!

Mortal Kombat: Songs Inspired by the Warriors (tracklist included)

15 Apr


With the brand new Mortal Kombat’s April 19th release date quickly approaching, I thought I’d take a minute to comment on the amazing soundtrack.

Instead of just going for the standard fighting game soundtrack complete with orchestral ebbs and flows possibly mixed with hard-driving rock aspects, this game went in a wholly different direction.

This game’s soundtrack is comprised completely of original tracks made by various current DJs and producers. Each of these electronic music artists was given the task of creating a song for a specific character. Here’s the tracklist so you have an idea

01. Scorpion – JFK (of MSTRKRFT)
02. Mileena – Tokimonsta
03. Sub-Zero – Harvard Bass
04. Liu Kang – Congorock
05. Goro – Bird Peterson
06. Reptile – Skrillex
07. Raiden – 9th Wonder
08. Johnny Cage – LA Riots
09. Baraka – Run DMT
10. Kung Lao – Felix Cartal
11. Kano – Them Jeans
12. Shao Kahn – Sound Of Stereo

There’s something for everybody on this album…Skrillex’s “Reptile” is a downtempo club feel but with his hard dubstep synths. Run DMT’s “Baraka” is a pulse-pounding drumstep tune. 9th Wonder captures a hip hop feel with his theme for Raiden. There’s even some standard electro-house in the “Liu Kang,” “Sub-Zero,” and “Johnny Cage” tracks.

But even though this soundtrack covers so much ground, all of the songs seem to be matched up well for the game and I could imagine many late nights playing this game and listening to the various original songs by these great artists.

Skrillex – Reptile

LA Riots – Johnny Cage
