DJ Hero soundtrack is all original

Over 80 brand new mixes included.

Kotaku reports that every track in DJ Hero will be an original, never-released mix created specifically for the game.

Essentially, the DJs that have consulted on the game - including DJ Shadow - with developer Freestyle and publisher Activision have created over 80 new and fully-licensed "mash-ups" featuring artists like Gorillaz, Marvin Gaye, the Foo Fighters, Herbie Hancock and Jay-Z.

Kotaku speculates that the soundtrack could be a valuable music release in its own right, but Freestyle simply said that no announcements had been made about selling the music outside of the game.

DJ Hero is out this autumn for Xbox 360, PS3, PS2 and Wii.
