BioShock EP Features Remixes by Moby and Oscar The Punk
2K Games has announced the release of an exclusive EP for BioShock that has been remixed by Moby and Oscar The Punk. The CD will be bundled with the GameStop and EB Canada Limited Edition of the game, as well be given out as a pre-sale gift from Game Crazy. The EP includes three remixed tracks — Beyond the Sea, God Bless the Child, and Wild Little Sisters — which all appear in their original format in the game. Moby and Oscar The Punk teamed up to remix these songs with BioShock’s atmosphere in mind:
â€œWhile these classic songs from the 40â€™s and 50â€™s evoke a happier time, they take on an eerie aesthetic in BioShockâ€™s decaying art deco-designed underwater city of Rapture,â€ said Christoph Hartmann, President of 2K Games. â€œMoby and Oscar The Punk have captured that disparity with these remixes and added a new spin to these indelible classics.â€
Well, crap. If I had known this last week, I probably would’ve pre-ordered the Limited Edition instead of the regular. Of course, once I’m running through an underwater city and blowing up Big Daddies, I’m sure that will be the last thing on my mind.
