The soundtrack for Rollerdrome by Electric Dragon debuts today on streaming platforms. The dystopian third-person action shooter is by OlliOlli series developer Roll7, published by Private Division for Windows operating systems and PlayStation consoles.

Earlier today, the PlayStation Blog posted "How Rollerdrome’s composer created the sound of 2030," a question-and-answer session with the Rollerdrome composer on the music score's dark retro-futuristic synth beats.

"I basically tackled the soundtrack as if it was sort of from the angle of the 70’s looking forward," the composer says. "And then I was inspired a bit by lots of different things really: 70’s pioneers like Vangellis, Wendy Carlos, Philip Glass, Giorgio Moroder, Tangerine Dream… lots of inspiration from lots of places!"

Rollerdrome launches for Windows through Steam, PS4 and PlayStation 5 on August 16th. The 20-track soundtrack album—streaming on YouTube Music, Spotify and Amazon Music Unlimited—includes arrangements by Cartridge 1987, Vincenzo Salvia, Nightcrawler and Lhasa Mencur.
