With Grammy-winning artists singing the praises of his remixes, J.Period has risen from producing mixtapes to scoring major movie trailers – a feat few other DJs have accomplished. In his latest venture, J.Period becomes the first DJ/Producer hired by gaming giant Activision to score an entire video game soundtrack. Commissioned by Activision Publishing, Inc., (Nasdaq: ATVI), J.Period’s soundtrack will accompany the latest release in the Tony Hawk video game franchise – Tony Hawk’s Motion, launching November 18 exclusively on the Nintendo DSTM.

“J.Period has meticulously crafted an incredible collection of exclusive and original tracks that capture the essence of the Tony Hawk experience,” said Tim Riley, vice president, music affairs at Activision, Inc. “This franchise has a long-standing tradition of offering high-energy soundtracks, but J. has taken it to a new level and delivers an adrenaline-pumping masterpiece for Tony Hawk’s Motion.”

“I am thrilled to be part of the Tony Hawk’s Motion project,” said J.Period. “I was truly honored to be given the responsibility of crafting the entire soundtrack for game play-exclusive tracks, no samples, all original material. This is no underground mixtape. All the music was composed and recorded exclusively for Activision for this project. I don’t know any other mixtape DJ who is taking it to that level.”
