DJ Shadow talks to GameInformer about being a consultant to the forthcoming DJ Hero game. He says much of his involvement surrounds sample identification and clearance recommendations. He also described how the game will likely work:
"OK, you have one song and that’s going to represent the left turntable, and you’re mixing it with another song that’s going to represent the right turntable, and then there’s going to be a sample track ... So that’s basically in a nutshell what you’re working with when you’re playing the game, is you have two records playing, and you have a sample track, and you have to basically simulate what you’re hearing."
