Ministry of Sound heads up FIFA 2002
It was announced today in the UK by Electronic Arts that Ministry Sound Recordings will be heading up the project of sound in FIFA Soccer 2002 and 2002 FIFA World Cup. The company will provide 10 tracks for the titles as FIFA Soccer is expected for a November 2001 release.
"Our consumers are massive fans of Ministry of Sound series so having them provide the feature music for FIFA Soccer 2002 is very exciting for us," said Chris Taylor, sound artist for EA Sports. "Music fans worldwide can now experience the sound of 30,000 screaming soccer fans chanting to the beats of Ministry of Sound dance tracks in FIFA Soccer 2002."†
"As a record company and music publisher, we are always looking for ways to get our music distributed, beyond the straight performance and sale of records," said Tony Moss, publishing manager of Ministry of Sound. "Video games give us an important platform for dance music to be heard across the globe. And, our producers and writers have consoles and love the idea of being involved!"
The 10 tracks included in FIFA Soccer 2002 include: "Never Gonna Come Back Down, (Hybrid's Echoplex Dub)" by BT, "Energy Flow" by Vitae, "First Snow" by Issi Noho, "Tenshi," by Gouryella, "Overdrive" by Sandy v Housetrap, "Stop and Panic" by Cirrus, "Repeat the Sequence" by The Edison Factor, "Das Glockenspiel" by Schiller, "The Bells" by Terpsichord, and R4's "Revolution."
