It seems like the gaming industry is becoming more closely tied to the dance music industry with every new big release. It was first brought to my attention last year when the soundtrack to Mortal Kombat featured original productions from Felix Cartal, LA Riots, Harvard Bass, amongst others, and now the bridge has been built once more as SSX, the fierce snowboarding game set for release on EA Sports on February 28th, features a soundtrack full of dance and indie artists including Skrillex, Amon Tobin, Digitalism, and many more.

I think it’s safe to say that Pretty Lights has a knack for bringing back music that is nostalgic in nature through his excellent taste and refined aural senses. To no surprise, he has done it yet again with a remix of the old SSX video game classic, Run DMC’s “It’s Tricky.” It’s great to hear how Pretty Lights has explored darker, more ominous tones in this remix, as well as his recent releases, while still maintaining the overall good vibes. The video above is from his sold-out two night run in Alpharetta, GA last month and as you can see, he has been exhausting crowds in the best way possible from East to West. Keep an eye out for a GDD™ premier & download of this remix in the coming weeks!
