Snowboarding reboot SSX will feature a new version of Run DMC's ‘It’s Tricky’ remixed by Pretty Lights, publisher Electronic Arts has announced.
The track first cropped up in SSX Tricky for PlayStation 2, becoming one of the most beloved songs among fans of the acclaimed franchise.
SSX audio producer, Freddy Ouano, commented, “Music has always been an important element of the SSX franchise. ‘It’s Tricky’ had such a monumental impact on fans of SSX Tricky that we wanted to pay tribute to the song by introducing it to a whole new generation ofSSX and musicfans.”
"We chose Pretty Lights to remix the track because he’s a phenomenal artist whose style fits well with the tone and direction of this rebirth of SSX.”
Meanwhile, Derek Vincent Smith, aka Pretty Lights, added: “I’ve always loved hip-hop, video games and snowboarding, so it was truly an honor to put my twist on such a classic song for such a dope game. Can’t wait to play it!”
SSX is due out in February 2012 for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360.
