THE SCRATCH PERVERTS AND DJ YODA
PROVIDE EXCLUSIVE MIXES FOR DJ HERO

The growing crew of turntable
legends bringing mixes exclusively to DJ Hero continues to build with the
addition of The Scratch Perverts, winners of the inaugural DMC World Team
Championship in 1999, and hip hop turntablist DJ Yoda, one of today’s hottest
DJs tearing it up on the ones and twos.

The Scratch Perverts, a UK-based
crew comprised of scratch masters Tony Vegas, DJ Primecuts and Plus One, have
spun five mixes including:

  • Common – “Universal Mind Control (UMC)”
    vs. Masta Ace – “Jeep A** Gutter”

  • Eric B. & Rakim – “Eric B. Is
    President” vs. M.I.A. – “Paper Planes”

  • Noisia – “Groundhog” (Beat Juggle)

DJ Yoda has created two mixes that
will appear on-disc when DJ Hero drops this October:

  • • The Jackson 5 – “I Want You
    Back” vs. Gang Starr – “Just to Get a Rep”

  • • Little Richard – “Tutti Frutti”
    vs. Shlomo – “Beats”

Expanding upon the revolutionary
easy to pick up/challenging to master gameplay mechanics developed and refined
in Guitar Hero®, DJ Hero delivers an all-new interactive music experience that
allows players to start the party and not only experience, but to hear music in
an all-new way. With over 100 individual songs, highlighted in 93 unique
never-before-released mixes that blend genres of music, including hip-hop, pop,
rock and dance, DJ Hero delivers the most diverse and international collection
of music ever assembled in a music game by incorporating anthems from legendary
artists. Created exclusively for DJ Hero, the turntable controller immerses fans
into the authenticity of DJ culture and a sea of music as they utilize and
master various DJ techniques including scratching, blending, cross fading and
sampling, while leaving room for creative expression with a variety of effects
and player chosen samples and scratches, transforming a face in the crowd into
the life of the party.
