Long-standing Baltic Creative tenant Milky Tea has announced that the soundtrack for their latest game, Hyperbrawl Tournament, has been crafted by celebrated British music producer and fellow Baltic tenant, Steve Levine.
The soundtrack, which is being published and released by Sony/ATV Music Publishing and Sony Music Masterworks, will be available on October 16, and it’s lead single “The Journey Begins” will be released this Friday, October 9.
Steve Levine is known for creating iconic studio albums for Culture Club and music for The Beach Boys, Motörhead, Deniece Williams, Honeyz, Ziggy Marley, and Westworld. Levine’s album, which includes eighteen invigorating tracks, amplifies the retro, energetic feel of the Hyperbrawl Tournament video game, which is an arcade-style sports brawler experience for 1-4 players created by Milky Tea Limited.
“I’m delighted to be involved with Sony/ATV and Sony Masterworks on this project. As the record producer for this soundtrack, Milky Tea encouraged my sonic and creative energies to flow from the initial musical sketches to the epic final mixes,” said Steve Levine.
Jon Holmes, Founder and Studio Director, Milky Tea Limited said,
“We’re thrilled to work with Steve Levine, Sony/ATV and Sony Masterworks on this unique project. It has been a privilege to sit with Steve at his studio and watch a true master at work as he crafted music from our sketches, game mock-ups, animations and art references. He’s a legend and has brought our gameplay to life with an immersive soundtrack that creates an intergalactic science-fantasy world – what’s not to love?
