The soundtrack to SSX Blur will be released on February 20th, 2007 as the result of a joint partnership between EA and Nettwerk Music Group.

The music included on SSX Blur was written and composed by legendary electronic madman Junkie XL. "To me, SSX is a classic video game franchise. Most challenging in the creation of the SSX music was to find a sound for the game," says Junkie XL of his involvement with the project. "Of course I wanted to put some proper Junkie XL in the music, but it also had to fit into the arcade style of the game. It has somewhat of a fairy-tale vibe to it, so the challenge was to find a combination of these 2 ingredients. Another thing I wanted to add to the music were classical electronic music influences, so you hear many nods to different styles of electronic music, dating back to the 60's and going to current."

For the creation of the soundtrack Junkie XL teamed up with long-time friend Andre Ettema and assistant Sam Estes to aid sound design aspects of the score. The trio holed themselves up in the studio for 5 weeks working on the project. "When I look back now, I remember the great times we had making this music. I just moved into a new studio space when we started this job, so it was the first music we created in the new studio," recalls Junkie XL. "It also reminds me off the fun we had playing soccer in the parking lot on my studio lot. I felt it was important to keep the whole process fun as the game and the Wii should be good fun when you play it. I lacked the big mountain with snow here in my studio so the fun we had playing soccer reflected the fun we would have had on a mountain doing some snowboarding ourselves. You listen to the music and you definitely hear the fun!!!"

The album features 15 tracks with song titles such as "Rail Yard," "Dark Territory," "Love Park," and "Blackcomb."

As for how Junkie XL came up with much of the music, he swears it was the result of his past life experiences. "In another life I was a World Cup snowboarder, going from Terrain Park to Terrain Park, laying some sick tricks down for the local boarders," he exclaims. "I thought it would be fun to feature some of the names of the best snow parks and hills all over the world. I even featured my favorite parks in China (Wanlong Mellow) and my favorite in Japan (Norikura). The titles are my way of saying hello to all my friends at the different snow parks."
