We assumed DJ Hero's
musical offerings would be impressive (considering the source of the mash-ups therein
), but a recent Activision press release just gave us an idea to the number of tunes we'll be weaving together this fall -- according to the release, the game "features more than 100 individual songs that have been transformed into more than 80 exclusive, original mixes."
The press release also dropped a few of the artists included in the aforementioned 100 songs, including Black Eyed Peas, 50 Cent, Marvin Gaye, Beck, and the Beastie Boys. Hopefully, the dispatch's failure to include James Taylor
in this list was a simple, accidental oversight, and not indicative of Mr. Taylor's non-involvement in the turntable-centric title.
