Have you been watching the Google I/O Keynote speech? Unless you’re a big old nerd like us, probably not watching a live stream of a developer conference. But if you have, you’d have seen the demonstration of Racer, a cross platform Chrome experiment. A slot racing game with an interesting soundtrack, it’s scored by Italo Disco legend. Mr. Giorgio Moroder.
Racer, named after the game itself, is a pounding SynthWave stormer. Loaded with hard hitting basslines and warbling leads. A driving force that lives up to it’s title, Racer is a high octane collision of euphoric leads and growling bass accompanied by melodic vocoding. Written for a racing game, the track has all the energy and excitement to keep the mood going. (Also, yes we’re using out favourite Moroder picture again, ‘cos it’s amazing).
Giorgio Moroder’s Racer is available as a free 320kbps download from the Google Play store.
