Strap yourselves in kids, this will be a bit of a long one!
We have been posting Konrad OldMoney on here for many a moon now and have made sure to keep up to all the kooky adventures he ends up being part of. Mr. OldMoney is a well established music producer from Vancouver / LA who has been consistently redefining music genres and the role of a music producer. Just in 2017 alone, he has produced and written a number one album “Countdown” for Polish POP Superstar – Dawid Kwiatkowski, which earned an MTV Best Artist Award in Poland, he then went on to produce and release Canadian folk singer and winner of CBC Searchlight 16, Desirée Dawson’s “Wildheart” album, which is a beautiful soulful journey. Desirée’s haunting vocals shine amongst an elegant balance of live instruments and carefully chosen poetry. Did OldMoney rest on his laurels? Nope, nope he didn’t kids. He then proceeded to produce a whole whackload of music for EA Sports – Fifa 17 “The Journey” Reveal Trailer, NBA Live and UFC3.
I recently got my greasy fingers on a copy of EA Sports UFC3 and gave it a spin. Being a huge fan of UFC2, I was really curious about the differences between the two games and also pretty pleased to see a Vancouver local representing strongly on such a dope video game title. I am getting a hang of the changes in gameplay now and started betting with my friends over who is going to kick who’s ass. Needless to say I have been miserably losing and therefore I’ve been resorting to things like classic misdirection, kicking the guy with the controller and just plain screaming as loud as I can to annoy them enough to leave mid match.
So…Here is the nerdy part. I’ma break this down for yous
The gameplay is dope! The strategy component is much more prominent in this one. If you wanna win, you gotta plan. The game uses Real Player Motion Tech (according to the nerdy sources out thurr on the innanet), which just makes errthang better. Knockout Mode is my favorite because it’s none of this wrestling stuff. Stand and Bang is my style ;) The players look more real and move better, overall a great improvement on the game. But also, another huge selling feature of this game, something EA does really really well, is the Soundtrack. You can see OldMoney’s name and song amongst artists such as CARDI B, Kendrick Lamarr, Snoop Dogg, A$AP Ferg, Big Boi, Dj Khaled, Future, Yo Gotti, Foster The People, G-Eazy, Meek Mill, Rick Ross, The Killers, Dave East, Run The Jewels, Tech N9ne, Vic Mensa and the list goes on. Hats off to the Music Supervisor Ricardo Almeida and the game producer Freddy Ouano for pulling off this madness and not disappointing us fans!

Now that we are oh so learned, let’s take a gander at the single “Undefeated” shall we? The song features Korean Rap Superstar JUNOFLO, who signed with rap legend Drunken Tiger’s Label FEEL GHOOD MUSIC (OldMoney has done lots of work with their squad in the past so this must be how this collab came about). Also Seattle based rap crew Dyme Def. The verses pack a solid punch to the face. The music is heavy orchestral smack em in the face with the subs turned up to 12. Konrad OldMoney also did the UFC3 Theme music for the game which you can hear during load screens when you turn on the console or play directly from the menus. Undefeated is hype as Fuuuuuuu….. Turn up ze bass kids!!
