How did Ninja become one of the world’s elite gamers? Because he didn’t come to play, and neither is he messing around with his debut musical offering. The famous Fortnite player teamed with legendary electronic label Astralwerks to compile a personal gaming soundtrack to best them all. Recently, he premiered new tunes from Alesso, 3LAU and Tycho, and today, we get a dark, UK dubstep-inspired follow-up from bass behemoth NERO.
“Lullaby” is beautiful and powerful. Half-time tempos set the scene for some noir-style games or some epic battles, while NERO singer Alana Watson levels the playing field with some delicate romance. It’s good for listening even if you aren’t playing video games, but since you here, you might as well.
Ninjawerks Volume 1 is set for full release Friday, on Dec. 14. Listen to NERO’s “Lullaby” below.
