Dimitri Vegas and Like Mike provide music for the latest Mortal Kombat instalment

MUMBAI: Ever at the forefront of entertainment and continuing to break down the walls outside of dance music, Dimitri Vegas and Like Mike once again showcase their heavyweight pull after being drafted in to provide the sound for the first official game play trailer of the latest in the Mortal Kombat series, Mortal Kombat 11. Their 2018 track with The Bassjackers The Jungle, originally released via Smash the House, provided the soundbed for the first glimpse of the latest instalment in the long-standing blockbuster game, which is set for release on 23 April 2019.

Dimitri was present for the reveal event which took place in London on Thursday, and whilst gaining a first peek into the latest edition of Mortal Kombat also took part in the celebrity head-to-head event which featured other heavyweight names from the world of entertainment, from boxing star Chris Eubank Jr. to Arsenal football club’s Mesut Öziland Sead Kolašinac, while UFC superstar Ronda Rousey was also confirmed as a voice actor for one of the characters at the event. Dimitri took on and beat fellow dance music titan Don Diablo in the semi-final, before eventually succumbing to French Youtuber Squeezie’s talents as he took home the title.

Beyond dance music, Dimitri’s involvement in entertainment continues to flourish, as this latest involvement follows on from acting appearances in other high-action offerings such as Jean Claude van Damme’s 2018 film Lukas, while the brothers also appeared in the feature film from Moroccan directors Adil El Arbi and Bilall Falah titled Patser (meaning Gangsta) and have credits due in the upcoming George C. Romero film Rise Of the Living Dead, the follow up to cult-horror Night Of The Living Dead. Belgium’s favourite brothers are no stranger to sound tracking on-screen action either, famously remixing the original Hans Zimmer theme He’s A Pirate, which appeared as an official remix in the form of a bonus digital track on the recent Pirates of The Caribbean: Salazar’s Revenge movie. The brothers also provided the soundtrack for Patser.
