...and the mixes that they'll be bringing to the turntable
It's not long before DJ Hero 2 drops and when it does, it's going to bring with it a staggering amount of remixes and mash-ups that players will scratch and beat-juggle to. A while ago, DJ Shadow let it slip that he would return in some form or another, and now Activision has confirmed that he will at the very least be providing two mixes to the game's soundtrack.
DJ Shadow, alongside The Scratch Perverts, DJ Jazzy Jeff and Z-Trip will all be making a welcomed return, but DJ Hero 2 will also see the addition of Philadelphia-based producer Diplo and A-Trak, who won the DMC World Finals in 1997 at the age of 15, making him the youngest winner in the history of the championships.
