Paul Oakenfold working on EA titles

Electronic Arts has secured the services of veteran dance and electronic music DJ Paul Oakenfold to contribute to its GoldenEye: Rogue Agent and FIFA Football 2005 games, the publisher announced this week.

In his role of music supervisor on GoldenEye, Oakenfold will compose an original score and create "the game's overarching musical personality with hard-driving rhythmic beats hand-crafted for every mission".

In an earlier announcement, EA revealed that Oakenfold has already written and recorded the EA Sports Football theme that will debut in FIFA Football 2005 later this year.

Other artists on the FIFA soundtrack include Air, Faithless, Franz Ferdinand, INXS, Morrissey, New Order and The Soundtrack of Our Lives.

Oakenfold's previous experience in this area includes a number of high profile films, including Swordfish, The Bourne Identity, Goldmember and The Matrix Reloaded.
