Match The Song To A Game — Enter The Shikari
For those who don’t know, OppiKoppi took place last weekend in the Limpopo, offering three days of incredible local and international music with an endless supply of alcohol. No seriously, they ran out of water and Pepsi before beer. It was one of the best experiences I’ve ever had and I encourage anyone who’s never been to go next year. Why am I telling you all of this instead of getting to my song choice this week? Well because the song and band I’ve chosen this week were introduced to me during OppiKoppi, with one of the best live performances I’ve ever heard.
Enter Shikari is a heavy metal/dub step/drum and bass/ electro band straight out of the U.K. They were one of the headline bands last weekend and not knowing them I decided to check them out before heading off to see Seether (which was equally as awesome). What I heard changed my life. The song above is probably their best out of the three albums they have released, and it’s the one we want you to match to a game this week.
It shouldn’t be too hard either considering that the band’s music is a mix of the two genres that make up most game soundtracks nowadays. Do enjoy.
