Games Development Summer School

Welcome to the new weekly playlist! Every week we’re going to feature music from different members of our lovely staff so you can get a better idea of the kind of music we like to listen to. First up is the newest member of our team, Keri. ‘I’m originally from Canada but moved to Manchester back in October. I’ve always used music as a means to process my emotions and understand myself better. Life would be inescapably boring without music. My favourite track on the playlist this week definitely has to be The Immigrant Song remix by Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross. Very rock n’ roll and crisp’. Check the link below to see the rest of the playlist, and we’ll see you next week!
