Ubisoft partners with Hudson Mohawke to make Watch Dogs 2 soundtrack

29 Oct 16

Ubisoft has announced that it has partnered with famous producer, Hudson Mohawke, to make the Watch Dogs 2 soundtrack

Mohawke might not be known to some people, but he has helped produce music for a number of household names. The artists he has worked with include: Kanye West, Drake, John Legend, Travis Scott, Future, Lil Wayne, Young Thug, Pusha T, Tinashe, Frank Ocean and Björk. 

In Watch Dogs 2, the soundtrack has music similar to Mohawke's earlier work. You will hear a fusion between electronic and hip-hop mixed in with his own musical inspirations. 

“Working on this soundtrack was a really exciting and refreshing prospect for me, especially considering the themes in the game are things I’m also passionate about,” said Hudson Mohawke. “When Ubisoft approached me to work alongside them in developing the game’s sounds, I knew I wanted to use the palette of some cult sci-fi soundtracks while also 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 and allowing me to reach new audiences with my music without needing a ‘genre’ stamp.”

The Watch Dogs 2 soundtrack is available on November 11th. As for the game itself, it's out first on PS4 and Xbox One on November 15th and then on PC on November 29th.
