Not suprising, very Aussie centric satire with level of cynicism that would cut through 100lbs of bullshit @ 50 paces. Takes a certain kind of whacker. Still thier audience was big enough to keep them performing for a little over 20 years. And yes hard not to think of Devo.
Found this artist a few weeks ago and i must say that i could totally see him making some music for CP2077. He has some tracks that totally go well with the cyberpunk setting , while some others are just pure 80's disco/synth.
Sorry, put some PUNK in the music! I thought Cyberpunk 2077 is for mature people?
I don't want to be offensive, but what I have seen here so far is mostly second class -imho. I would use at least partially music from the time Cyberpunk was created.
Veto - Nemesis babe (this is pretty new)
Know the roots ... It's CyberPUNK, not Techno or Trance kids
Here you find Mr. Pondsmith opinion (http://obskures.de/2013/cyberpunk-2077-an-interview-with-mike-pondsmith/)

Mike Pondsmith Mike Pondsmith: Go downtown at midnight and stand outside in the cold rain. Wait to get mugged. Beat down the mugger instead. Or barring that, watch Blade Runner, followed by Max Headroom, followed by Ghost in the Shell, drink a couple shots of cheap whiskey and end up the night listening to some really good trance, electronica or dubstep. While making love to your heavily tattooed girlfriend.
I dunno. As I said somewhere else, I think this recut is very good. The edgy 80s tech music is pretty much right on. If I had a complaint, it would be that the last ten or twenty seconds is a little weak.
The pick-up is really well timed and the music gets me wanting to move, which suits the bullets flying past very nicely.
CDPR is CD Projeckt Red, I think. SLIM! YOUR ACRONYMS HAVE CONFUSEDED US.
I'd agree that it's a bit much 80's, but I think there should definitely at least some of that influence on the sooundtrack overall. For specific instances in the game though, something Pertubator-esque or Neo-retro I would really welcome. Cyberpunk, both as a genre and as the RPG, is an 80's creation after all and it would be a great shame if that angle weren't worked into the sound somehow.
EDIT: Also, there is already a thread for this -- "Cyberpunk Soundtrack", either this page or one back.
