Dear gamers, its time to put away your gaming headphones and start listening to fresh new music from none other than the Fortnite star Tyler Blevins aka“Ninja”. Seems like Ninja is looking forward into the business world with his other talents too. Ninja is here with some of the world’s biggest EDM artists for a standalone album called Ninjawerks, which is based on Epic’s popular game.
The first three songs from Ninja Werks Vol. 1 are “Tilted Towers” by Alesso, “Jetty” by Tycho, and “Game Time” by 3LAU—but “Game Time” also features the vocals of Ninja.
Here are some thoughts from the producers themselves.
“[Tilted Towers is] where most people land, so it’s very action-packed, intense and chaotic,” Alesso is quoted in a press release. “I’ve been playing this song during my shows and everyone has been enjoying it. When I found out about this project with Ninja, I knew that it was the perfect home.”
“Since playing Ocarina of Time, video games have been a huge part of my life, and the best soundtracks always caught my ear (especially Zelda),” 3LAU is quoted. “When I had the opportunity to work with Ninja on ‘Game Time’ & the Ninjawerks compilation, I was insanely excited to combine two lifelong interests. In making ‘Game Time,’ the goal was to meld more nostalgic video-game sounds with a modern club-oriented bass line & of course, Ninja’s synthesized vocals. It was the perfect recipe for a high energy record, and we are all so excited for the world to hear it!”
“I’ve always been inspired by video games and the alternate reality they offer,” Tycho is quoted. “This is something I try to achieve in my music: to transport the listener to another space. I’m excited to connect my music with an art form that I enjoy so much.”
Ninjawerks will be available to purchase and stream on December 2nd and will be out on 14th .You can check out the tracks below.
