DJ Hero meets DLC

Posted by: Tina at 10/30/2009 7:21 PM
There are already 93 mixes available to DJ Hero, but Activision is adding to the pack with some DLC offering a mix of 50 Cent featuring Mary J. Blige with Queen, and a Gorillaz vs. Public Enemy track, “Can’t Truss It.” Check the videos for what the music will play like. I like the Gorillaz vs. Public Enemy track.


These two extra tracks should tide you over until November 24th, when you will get access to the David Guetta Mix Pack. David Guetta’s tracks are remixes of some popular R&B songs, and he’s generally known to produce music of the hip-hop mixed with house nature. I’m not his biggest fan, and I definitely think there are better DJs out there, but I bet there are plenty of others who are excited for his music to be featured in DJ Hero.
