Video game music is far removed from the 8-bit quality many of us grew up on. And when the latest release from DC Comics features a knocking Killer Mike track called “Villain,” times have clearly changed for the better. For the upcoming soundtrack to a super hero-oriented Injustice: Gods Among Us game, Killer Kill From The Ville undertakes the role of your favorite arch-nemesis and fuses that wickedness together with a trap-step beat that provides the fuse to his fury, tying together to the diabolical theme quite nicely.
For more tunes that put “Mario’s Theme” to shame, check out the full soundtrack when it drops, April 16 on iTunes.
Oh yeah, did you hear the news? Killer Mike and El-P have formed Run The Jewels and there’s a full length on the way. For now, all we have his a snippet of “Banana Clipper” but it’s a monster in the making.
