Los Rakas Song Featured In Official FIFA 14 Soccer Game Soundtrack

We couldn't be happier that the Oakland via Panama group Los Rakas' brand new song "Hot" is featured on the Official FIFA 14 Soccer Game Soundtrack alongside Nine Inch Nails, Chvrches, Marcelo D2 and Vampire Weekend!

EA Sports' "FIFA 14" came out last week in the United States and was released worldwide on September 27th. The song "Hot" is off of their as-yet-to-be-released forthcoming double-disc project, "El Negrito Dun Dun & Ricardo", which is set to be released in 2014.

"This is a huge honor and dream come true for Los Rakas." Raka Dun says. "Being Panamanian and raised in the United States, FIFA connects us to the larger Latin American and global community. Soccer is our second love behind music."

According to Billboard, EA Music Supervisor Cybele Pettus describes the overall sound of the music featured in FIFA as “Celebratory and rhythmic. You want to get fired up like you get fired up if you’re at one of these games.”

Speaking to the sound of the song Raka Rich says, "'Hot' is great for the FIFA 14 soundtrack because of the drums. Raka Stylo - one of our main producers - captured the intensity of the sport through the sound of the song. I think people will really enjoy it."

We agree with EA Music Group president Steven Schnur's statement in Billboard, "The one thing that is important to know about the FIFA soundtrack is that it represents not just where music is at, but where music is on a global scale. Soccer/fútbol is a sport that has no boundaries." We are so excited for the world to hear what Raka Love is all about!

Josh Ritter's GRAMMY Museum Performance

Idaho born singer-songwriter Josh Ritter has been called one of the "10 Most Exciting Artists Now" by Entertainment Weekly and one of the "100 Best Living Songwriters" by Paste Magazine. His sixth studio album The Beast In It's Tracks was released in March and debuted at #22 on the Billboard 200 and #8 on Billboard’s Top Rock Albums. In addition to this commercial success, the album continues to receive widespread critical acclaim— NPR Music calls it, “…gorgeous and glorious,” while Pitchfork praises, “Beast is contemplative and forgiving, a means of burying one relationship to commit to another, and Ritter nicely evokes the excitement and resignation of such a transition.”

On June 13th, Josh will be participating in a sold out Spotlight Event at the GRAMMY Museum. The event features a special discussion moderated by GRAMMY Museum Executive Director, Bob Santelli, where Josh will discuss his current tour, as well as the making of the album. The discussion will be followed by a special performance by Josh. For more info on the GRAMMY Museum's Spotlight events visit
