DJ Jazzy Jeff For DJ Hero

DJ Hero gets turntable icon on board for its latest iteration

DJ Jazzy Jeff, hip-hop and R&B record producer, actor and world famous turntablist will ascend to the virtual stage this fall in Guitar Hero’s video game DJ Hero.

In addition to joining the distinguished rank of playable characters that will appear in the game, including DJ Shadow, DJ Z-Trip, Grandmaster Flash, DJ AM and others, DJ Jazzy Jeff will shake the room and bring the party to life with his own set list featuring two exclusive mixes hand created by himself – Tears for Fears Shout vs Eric B. & Rakim’s Eric B. Is President and LL Cool J Rock the Bells vs The Aranbee Pop Symphony Orchestra’s Bittersweet Symphony.

“I am very, very excited DJ culture is finally getting its due.,” said DJ Jazzy Jeff. “To have a song in DJ Hero is a dream come true…music is so much a part of everyone’s life, DJ Hero is going to appeal to almost everybody.”

 There is no sign of his partner, the Fresh Prince aka Will Smith, who left that moniker behind a long time ago to take up movie super stardom

Expanding upon the easy to pick up/challenging to master gameplay mechanics developed and refined in Guitar Hero, DJ Hero delivers an all-new interactive music experience that allows players to rule the party and not only experience, but to hear music in an all-new way. With over 100 individual songs, highlighted in over 80 never-before-released mixes that blend genres of music, including hip-hop, R&B, pop, rock and electronica, DJ Hero delivers the most diverse and international collection of music ever assembled in a music game by incorporating anthems from legendary artists. 

Created for DJ Hero, the turntable controller immerses fans into DJ culture and a sea of music as they utilize and master various DJ techniques including scratching, blending, cross fading and sampling, while leaving room for creative expression with a variety of effects and player chosen samples and scratches, transforming a face in the crowd into the life of the party.
