Death From Above 1979's Jeese Keeler is set to produce the soundtrack for the new 'Mortal Kombat'.

Well this takes us back a few years. Back in the day, members of the ClashMusic team would skive off school (double Tech Studies? NO THANKS) in order to slip out to mates' house and play 'Mortal Kombat'.

An inventive, gory thrill the game took beat 'em ups to a new level. Still going strong, the makers of the new instalment of 'Mortal Kombat' have genuinely made our morning after confirming the soundtrack details.

Due to be released on April 18th, 'Mortal Kombat' will come backed with a score produced by Death From Above 1979's Jeese Keeler. Fresh from the news that the seminal are set to get back together, this announcement has tickled the heart of our 15 year old selves.

Produced by Jeese Keeler, the soundtrack will draw on his own Teenage Riot imprint. Many acts from the label are featured, including LA Riots, Congorock and more.

As a special bonus, Keeler has contributed his own brand new track. Stepping away from MSTRKRFT the musician has recorded 'Deathstalker (Scorpion's Theme)' for the cult beat 'em up series.

'Mortal Kombat: Songs Inspired By The Warriors' is set for an April 4 release through Keeler's Teenage Riot Records. Tracklisting:

JFK of MSTRKRFT – 'Deathstalker (Scorpion's Theme)'
Tokimonsta - 'Mileena's Theme'
Harvard Bass - 'Helado (Sub-Zero's Theme)'
Congorock - 'Liu Kang's Theme'
Bird Peterson - 'Goro's Theme'
Skrillex - 'Reptile's Theme'
9th Wonder - 'Raiden's Theme'
LA Riots - 'Johnny Cage's Theme'
Run DMT - 'Baraka's Theme'
Felix Cartal - 'Kung Lao's Theme'
Them Jeans - 'Kano's Theme'
Sound Of Stereo - 'Shao Kahn's Theme'

Meanwhile, Death From Above 1979 are still recovering from an epic return at South By Southwest. Appearing at the finale of the Texan event, the pair blasted through their material causing a near riot.

Mounted police waded into the crowd, using mace and riot sticks to re-impose order. No doubt deeply distressing to be a part of, the incident has already been written into the band's mythology...
