I Am Legion - I Am Legion Album Preview [OWSLA]
It's Friday, and you know what that means. But until then, here's a free new Crystal Method video game tune, previews of new material from I Am Legion and Hardwell, the dates for the annual BPM Festival in Mexico, and more in the Newsbyte.

Legends Of Electronica

Nobody soundtracks video games like The Crystal Method... or bank robberies, car chases, grimy alleys, illegal transactions, or mischievous conspiring, for that matter.

With a gaming soundtrack resume full of titles like "Blur," "Pump It Up," "N2O," and multiple "Need For Speed" games (the irony of which we will never stop enjoying), the guys were the perfect choice when Riot Games needed a theme song for their MOBA game League of Legends' latest character, Lucian.

LA's dark beasts of breaks teamed up with Riot Games to produce a three-and-a-half-minute original named for the new character flaunting tons of dark vibes packed into a dense groove, making it a perfect track by which to drive your enemies before you. If you play, expect to be distracted by the jam while logging into Lucian.

Toolroom Upgrades Classic Hardware With Hardwell

To celebrate some of the incredible Toolroom releases over the years, the seminal record label is holding an Anniversary Remix series, which sees modern masters on the label remix classics that got the crew to where they are today.

Mark Knight and Funkagenda's cover of Laurent Garnier's The Man With The Red Face was a big move for the label in the dance music scene, winning them multiple awards in 2008, and Hardwell takes it for a spin in this installment of the Anniversary Remix series. Watch the video below, and pick it up when it drops Sept. 2 in a three-track package with remixes from Rene Amesz and ATFC.
