Atari and Marc Ecko's Getting Up: Contents Under Pressure Wins Video Music Award


One of the world's most recognized brands and leading third-party video game publisher, Atari, Inc. and Marc Ecko, the visionary behind several of today's most respected youth lifestyle brands, today celebrated as recipients of an MTV Video Music Award. Marc Ecko's Getting Up: Contents Under Pressure was named as winner of the first-ever Best Video Game Soundtrack category at last night's annual video music awards show. Marc Ecko's Getting Up: Contents Under Pressure is a broad-based action-adventure game inspired by graffiti and its historically rich and diverse culture.

Marc Ecko's Getting Up: Contents Under Pressure soundtrack features an array of licensed music and various original tracks, including an exclusive version of Notorious B.I.G.'s "Who Shot Ya," remixed by Serj from the band System of a Down; "Clik, Clak, and Spray" from Pack FM; "Book of Judges" from Pharoahe Monch; and "Getting Up Anthem: Part 1," performed by legendary Hip-Hop artist Rakim and Talib Kweli, the voice of the game's lead character, Trane.

Commenting on the soundtrack, Marc Ecko, executive creative director for Marc Ecko's Getting Up: Contents Under Pressure, stated, "On behalf of the entire Getting Up team, we are extremely grateful to MTV and the voting public for acknowledging our efforts to do something new and exciting with in-game music, and to Atari for making this happen.
