Music in gaming is big. Advances in games technology have let the music industry devise games involving controls shaped like guitars, microphones and drums, that let people sing and play along with classic hits. These are the top music games to hit the market.
Guitar Hero This 2005 game became a phenomenon and was the first to feature the idea of instrument game controls that you use to replicate guitar and drum tracks. A lot of people still consider it the best one as, from Take Me Out by Franz Ferdinand and Bark at the Moon by Ozzy Osbourne, there is a great range of music.
Def Jam Rapstar
For those who prefer rap to rock, this 2010 karaoke rap game will be the perfect choice. It includes Gin and Juice by Snoop Dogg and Brass Monkey by the Beastie Boys, with players able to rap along with the original videos. All you do is pick up the microphone control and get your flow on.
This slot features five reels of rock and roll imagery, including a rocker, dance shoes and glitter balls and uses a retro rock soundtrack to keep gaming levels high. It combines these with traditional online casino slot features like a 1000-coin jackpot, wild and scatter icons. This is available across various games sites which you can find through www.mobilecasino.mobi on your smartphone.
The Beatles: Rock Band
The world’s most famous band got in on the action with this 2009 game, and it is similar to guitar hero in letting you ‘play’ along using guitar or drum control simulators. Every Beatles song is here – from Please Please Me to Let it Be, while the game itself takes you through the band’s history through great graphics.
We’ve covered rock and rap, but what about pop fans? This 2009 game where you try out your moves against onscreen dancers, using a dance mat control, features pop hits like Roar by Katy Perry and Blame it on the Boogie by the Jackson Five – while the fitness mode lets you use it to lose weight.
Any of these games would make a brilliant party piece, letting people of all ages and tastes get up and get involved in the gaming.

We recently did Audio Editing, Sound Design, Music Recording, and the Audio Mixing for this short film to promote the launch of the X1 media pad, a new phone meets tablet computer by Huawei. It's a colourful and glamorous piece of work that follows a man and a woman - the titular Mary Day - who have accidentally swapped luggage and work out the issue during an internet date.
We were able to get the real sound of the car used in the shoot for authentic feeling!
We would like to introduce you to a unique and talented artist from China, Tracy Tan. Her first album called “Ten Years Adrift” is unique because each piece of music was written and sung by her.
As you may know, most pop artists in China and Korea are manufactured artists which means you really don't know who the singer is at all, they have been created by a company. It is rare to have an artist like Tracy who has written music from her own personal experience, and had the songs produced according to her own vision. She's also a great dancer, and will feature that in upcoming videos for the songs.
The lyrics from her songs capture the life of a young Chinese girl in the big city in Beijing, “Dreams are not that easy to realize; though there are tears streaming down your eyes, as if there were no tomorrow; if there’s a chance to escape the sorrow, to make your dreams come true, you’ll find that chance in you.”
Her lyrics shed light on what her life has been like for the last 10 years, since 2004.
No matter how difficult things got, she kept pressing on, and her attitude always reflected her words, “Strive to realize your dreams, and no matter what happens, never give up on love.”
Her courage and determination has brought her to where she is today.
The idea of a dream is rare amongst people in China, so Tracy's music gives a vision of a different and hopeful future.
