Kavinsky and Soulwax Also Host GTA V Radio Stations
One of the things that always made Rockstar Games wildly popular GTA series seem all that bit cooler was their commitment to bringing fans quality radio content to soundtrack the games many driving segments.
Whether it be from amusing political satire, humorous talk show hosts or a variety of specialist music programmes the developers work hard to make sure all tastes are accounted for as the games soundtrack supervisor Ivan Pavlovich explains. “Soundtracks have been an essential part of all our games and for Grand Theft Auto V, we wanted to cover the full breadth of the modern L.A. scene. From Flying Lotus breaking exclusives on his own radio station FlyLo FM, to new tracks from Wavves and Twin Shadow to some incredible classic hip-hop hosted by DJ Pooh, through to the Narco Corridos of East LOS FM, Grand Theft Auto V’s radio stations paint a definitive and eclectic picture of Los Santos through the sounds you’ll hear driving down the freeway.
Yesterday we saw eclectic sonic innovator Flying Lotus excitedly declare on his social media outlets that he would be hosting his own channel on the game and now we can confirm two more stations are to be helmed by electronic music producers. One of the new stations set to dominate the fictional airwaves is Soulwax FM, programmed by the Belgian brothers and featuring tracks from Gesaffelstein, Tiga, Jacques Lu Cont, Joe Goddard and as you’d expect Soulwax themselves.
Yet to be confirmed online but our underground sources claim is definitely in the pipeline is another radio station from previous GTA contributor Kavinsky in the form on Nightride FM which we can image delivers similarly cinematic retro-synth laden vibes to his previous work in the series for Rockstar’s GTA Vice City.
With over 15 stations and 240 licensed songs it is without doubt the biggest soundtrack Rockstar have yet compiled for a GTA game yet and we’re pleased to see dance music represented in such rude health. Now to just wait for the release…
