List Of 10: Our Favourite Music from the GTA 5 Soundtrack

List Of 10: Our Favourite Music from the GTA 5 Soundtrack

From radio stations curated by the likes of Flying Lotus and Gilles Peterson, to essential West Coast hip hop classics and contemporary beat music, to an original score composed by hip hop stalwarts Oh No and The Alchemist, mixed and arranged by DJ Shadow. GTA V is a true goldmine for (new) music.

4. The Gaslamp Killer – Nissim

We are surprised about the absence of The Gaslamp Killer on FlyLo FM, but we’re glad Gilles Peterson fills that void with “Nissim” off GLK’s debut studio album, Breakthrough. The Turkish soul groove with a break-beat ring to it, really fits the open ambience of Worldwide FM. We hope for a speedy recovery after The Gaslamp Killer’s near-death accident; and we’re not talking about a virtual GTA crash…

3. Trickski – Beginning

We absolutely love the composition of this track by German outfit Trickski. Starting off as a looped clap beat, it slowly builds towards a minimalistic, electronic pulse before the climax kicks in: a warm house-y jazz episode full of soul. Gotta love the sax.

Just an ordinary guy always on the hunt for extraordinary music. Not just as the founder of The Find Magazine & Rucksack Records, but also as a freelance music journalist (bylines at Tracklib, Bandcamp, Wax Poetics, DIG Mag, among others) and—above all—out of love for all kinds of good music.
