Listen to 'The Crew: Motorfest (Original Game Soundtrack)' here:
Blue Stahli, known for his genre-blurring compositions and high-octane production style, has garnered a massive global following and underscored many horror and action films like Lights Out, Iron Man 3 and Kingsman: The Golden Circle, as well as video games such as Call of Duty: Modern Warfare and Dead Rising 2. The Crew: Motorfest invites players to immerse themselves in car culture and embark on thrilling driving experiences in a vibrant open world, located in O’ahu, Hawaii. For his game soundtrack, Blue Stahli is full on in his studio bag of tricks for music that is adventurous and heart-racing inspired by iconic 80’s games and modern day atmospherics.
Shares Blue Stahli, “Composing music for Ubisoft’s ‘The Crew: Motorfest’ has been an amazing and unexpected journey! While I’ve done a lot of music that’s been in games and trailers, this is the first time I’ve composed a full score to picture. I create music in what some consider to be a really unconventional way, doing absolutely everything in a tracker rather than a traditional DAW (I use the modern tracker Renoise). Doing this score feels like such a full circle moment, both because trackers have such a legacy with game music from the 80s and 90s, and also because I flashback to when I first started messing with electronic music in an old DOS tracker with 8bit sounds and dreaming about doing music for a living. I can’t believe this is real, and I am massively grateful to the team at Ubisoft!”

About Blue Stahli
Blue Stahli is a surgeon of sound. He stitches together chopped up guitars, bass synths, electro beats, and vocal hooks into lush mixes of varying genres with surprising prowess and authenticity. In one turn, his catalog will take a listener from metallic heaviness to electronic ambience. Influenced by movies such as Hackers, Johnny Mnemonic, Bubblegum Crisis, and other 90s cyberpunk, Blue Stahli started making music in tracker programs such as Scream Tracker and Impulse Tracker (which were a big part of the demoscene as well as being used to create videogame soundtracks). The modern tracker, Renoise, continues to be Blue Stahli’s canvas of choice for producing his brand of electronic rock, bass music, French electro and even sophisticated videogame scores in the tradition of the original tracker pioneers.
Beginning in 2009 with his smash single, ULTRAnumb, Blue Stahli continues to blend genres and media having appeared in films and TV shows such as Lights Out and American Horror Story in addition to creating original songs for videogames like Cyberpunk 2077, and appearing in trailers for Destiny 2, and Call of Duty. As an evolving and prolific songwriter, producer, and artist, he has released 11 studio albums including the deadchannel_Trilogy consisting of Quartz, Copper, and Obsidian. He also releases material under his secondary moniker, Sunset Neon. Blue Stahli’s latest release, “Break and Enter,” is a collaboration with DJ and fellow producer, Hyper. The track fuses elements of their electronic rock, breakbeat, metal, and cyberpunk styles together in this electro punk rock single.
