Midnight Club 3 - A Detroit techno racing videogame

Buying a videogame just for the soundtrack? Yes. I think I will do it for first time, even when I am not a fan of racing games (I don't dislike them, anyway). The game in question is "Midnight Club 3 Dub Edition", which appears to be a decent street racing game according to gamespot. The company behind the game is Rockstar Games, creators of Grand Theft Auto series.

The important thing for us is that the streets in the game are actual streets from Detroit and the music is, of course, Detroit techno, featuring artists like Mad Mike. A recent article in Detroit Free Press tells us more about the story and about the people behind it. All music is from the Submerge label and you can check the "tracklist" here.

According to that article, "Terry Donovan, the CEO of Rockstar Games, was an electronic DJ before he helped found the company in 1998, working at clubs like Berlin's Tresor and the House of God in Britain. He says he's been a fan of Underground Resistance for years". Terry, if this is true, why did you include so few techno tracks in GTA: San Andreas?
