Murs, RJD2, Whodini, and more join Scratch soundtrack

While all eyes may be on another DJ game coming this holiday, Scratch DJ LLC are still plugging away at getting Scratch: The Ultimate DJ for a 2010 release. Today, eight new tracks have been revealed for the game’s soundtrack, and fans of hip-hop and R&B — both mainstream and underground — should be pleased.

  • “Gifted” – N.A.S.A Feat Kanye West, Santo Gold, Lykke Li
  • “Looking Fly” – Murs
  • “Skanky Panky” – Kid Koala
  • “Iced Lightning” – RJD2
  • “They Reminisce Over You” – Pete Rock & C.L Smooth
  • “Friends” – Whodini
  • “Push It” – Salt n Pepa
  • “Life in a Cage” – The Knux

“In the development of Scratch, we have remained committed to creating a setlist that will inspire and impress dedicated fans of hip-hop,” said Quincy Jones III, executive producer on the title.

Well, I’m inspired and impressed for sure — Murs, RJD2, and Whodini? Wouldn’t have guessed we’d see those names in a music game, so props to Scratch DJ LLC for making it happen. The above songs will be joining the previously announced tracks by Run DMC (“Peter Piper”), Gorillaz (“Feel Good Inc.”), Nelly (“Hot In Herre”), and Deltron 3030 (“Mastermind”).
